Ford Edge

The Ford Edge is a range of crossover SUVs manufactured by the Ford Motor Company. Introduced for the 2007 model year, the Edge is the first mid-size CUV marketed by Ford in North America; the model line is currently in its second generation. Deriving its name from a trim package of the Ford Ranger, the Ford Edge is positioned between the Ford Escape and the Ford Explorer within the Ford product line.

Sharing its underpinnings with the Ford Fusion sedan, Ford has also produced the model line as the Lincoln MKX (since 2019, the Lincoln Nautilus). The second generation is also marketed by Ford of Europe, positioned between the Kuga (Escape) and the Explorer PHEV.

All production of the first two generations of the Ford Edge is sourced from Ford of Canada at Oakville Assembly (Oakville, Ontario) alongside the Nautilus.

The third generation launched in 2023 is called the Edge L, and was first produced and sold exclusively in China.

First generation (U387; 2007)

The first-generation Edge debuted at the 2006 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, with production starting in January 2006 as a 2007 model year.

HySeries concept

A concept of the Ford Edge with HySeries Drive was shown at the 2007 Washington Auto Show. This was a hybrid electric vehicle that used hydrogen fuel along with plug-in charging of its lithium-ion battery pack, for a combined range over 320 kilometres (200 mi). The HySeries system was introduced in the Ford Airstream concept from the 2007 Detroit Auto Show.

Ford also planned to produce a gasoline-electric hybrid version of the Edge, to debut in the 2010 model year. The model was expected to use a new hybrid system from Ford, pairing an electric motor with a V6 engine. This hybrid version was later canceled.


The updated Ford Edge was revealed at the 2010 Chicago Auto Show, with production starting on February 12, 2010, as a 2011 model. Exterior changes include a new front fascia, wheels, and a revised bumper, while the revamped interior features upgraded materials and capacitive touch controls in place of some conventional buttons and switches, which can also be seen on the second-generation Lincoln MKX.

Engines offered for the updated first generation: a 2.0 L EcoBoost I4 engine, a 3.5 L Duratec with Ti-VCT making 285 hp (213 kW) and 253 lb⋅ft (343 N⋅m) of torque, and the Sport model had the same 3.7 L Duratec engine as the 2011 Lincoln MKX with 305 hp (227 kW) and 280 lb⋅ft (380 N⋅m) of torque. The turbocharger in the new 2.0-L engine is designed for 150,000 miles or 10 years.

Trim levels

In the American Range: The SE includes cloth-trimmed seats, single-zone manual air-conditioning, steering wheel controls, and 17-inch painted aluminum wheels.

The SEL includes everything in the SE plus unique cloth-trimmed seats, six-way power driver's seat, dual-zone electronic automatic temperature controls, leather-wrapped steering wheel with cruise control, five-way switch pads and secondary audio controls, 18-inch painted aluminum wheels, reverse sensing system, and supplemental parking lamps.

The Limited includes everything in the SEL plus leather-trimmed seats, 10-way heated power driver's seat, Sony audio system with HD radio with 12 speakers in 10 locations, MyFord Touch with two driver-configurable 4.2-inch color LCD displays in cluster and 8-inch color LCD display in center stack, Ford Sync including media hub with two USB ports, SD card reader and video input jacks, 18-inch chrome-clad aluminum wheels with optional 20-inch chrome-clad aluminum wheels, rear view camera, and six-way heated power, fold-flat front passenger seat. In Israel, this trim is called SEL Plus.

Second generation (CD539; 2015)

For 2015, the Ford Edge was redesigned with a new Taurus and Explorer-like grille, new headlights, LED combination taillights, increased interior room, and a rear-view camera. This generation of the Edge comes with a standard EcoBoost engine, the all-new 2.0 L (only the displacement and bore-center spacing carry over), which has a new twin-scroll turbo to boost low-end torque figures. Unlike the previous 2.0 L EcoBoost, the 2015 generation has a towing capacity of 3500 lb and is available with all-wheel drive. The midspecification engine is a 3.5 L V6, with slightly reduced power output. The highest engine in the range, powering Sport models, is the new 2.7 L twin-turbo EcoBoost V6.

For the first time, Ford marketed the Edge in European markets (as part of the company's "One Ford" strategy); it sits above the Ford Kuga. Gasoline engines are not sold in Europe; instead, this market receives either of two turbo-charged Duratorq diesel engines as used in other Ford Europe products such as the Ford Mondeo. Both engines are mated to an all-wheel drive system as standard; no option for two-wheel drive is available. The two engines are rated at 180 hp and 210 hp. Which output the customer receives is entirely dependent on the transmission choice, with a six-speed manual as standard mated to the 180-hp unit. A six-speed PowerShift automatic dual-clutch transmission option was available, mated to the 210-hp unit.

The Ford Edge was sold in Europe as a premium large crossover with only high-end trims and diesel engines at prices 50% higher than in North America. Due to low sales, the model was limited in 2019 to only a few countries, with the last stocks sold in early 2021.

2019 facelift

The Edge (alongside the Lincoln MKX) received a mid-cycle facelift for 2019, which replaced the existing Ford three-bar front grille with a design similar to the larger Ford Explorer, new aluminum-alloy wheel options, new exterior and interior color combinations, and a 12-speaker B&O Play surround-sound system that replaced the Sony system. All models received a new Ford 8F35 eight-speed automatic transmission (featuring automatic stop-start technology), which also allows the base 2.0 L EcoBoost turbocharged four-cylinder engine to gain a 5-horsepower (3.7 kW) boost, and improved EPA fuel economy.

With the launch of the 2018 model in Australia (February 2019 in New Zealand), the Edge is sold as the Ford Endura, and is the successor to the Ford Territory. In Australia, the Endura was made available in Trend, ST-Line, and Titanium trim levels. The Endura was discontinued in Australia by the end of 2020. It had been discontinued in New Zealand prior to this.

The 2019 Ford Edge was offered in nine exterior colors, some of which were new for 2019.

In addition, the 2019 Edge offered three new safety technologies:

  • Post-collision braking automatically applies brake pressure when a collision event is detected.
  • Evasive steering assist helps drivers in steering around stopped or slower vehicles to avoid a possible collision.
  • Adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go lane centering allows the vehicle to maintain a comfortable driving distance and helps reduce stress during longer drives.

The 2019 Edge made its debut at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, and went on sale in the spring of 2018 as an early 2019 model year vehicle.

For the 2020 model year, dual-zone automatic climate control was included on all trims. However, the CD player was removed.

Edge Plus (China, 2021 facelift)

The Edge in China was facelifted with the rest of the world in 2019 while receiving another facelift for the 2021 model year exclusively for the Chinese three-row Edge called the Ford Edge Plus. The Edge Plus features a slightly redesigned exterior and a different interior design. The interior features two new displays measuring 8 and 13.2 inches across and a new squared-off multi-function steering wheel. The updated center console houses both the climate controls and the air vents, while a cover below conceals a power socket, a single USB port and a wireless charger. The Edge Plus is powered by the previous 2.0-liter turbo-inline-4 engine producing 245 PS (242 hp; 180 kW) and 390 N⋅m (39.8 kg⋅m; 288 lb⋅ft), which links to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Both FWD and AWD are offered.

2021 model year changes

For the 2021 model year, the Ford Edge gained a standard twelve-inch, tablet-style touchscreen infotainment system screen, with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, as well as standard SiriusXM satellite radio with 360L. A new "ST-Line" trim, based on the mid-level Edge SEL, added ST-inspired exterior and interior styling, a unique ActiveX (leatherette)-trimmed interior, and unique black-finished aluminum-alloy wheels, but is powered by the base 2.0L EcoBoost four-cylinder engine mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The Edge Titanium gained a new Titanium Elite Package, which added a unique interior color scheme, model-specific exterior styling cues, and larger tires with unique aluminum-alloy wheels.

Edge ST

Ford also offered a new model of the Edge, the ST, instead of the Sport as the top trim level for the line. It features a 2.7 L EcoBoost twin-turbocharged V6 engine producing 335 horsepower (250 kW), a modest 20 horsepower (15 kW) increase over the 2018 Sport, which used the same engine. ST styling includes a dark-finished mesh front grille, aluminum-alloy wheels, and unique interior.
