Introduced in 2006 as a 2007 model, the Ford Edge became an important player for Ford in the midsize crossover SUV category. Based on the CD3 platform shared with a number of other Blue Oval products, the Edge became a good seller, rolling over 130,000 units off dealer lots its first year alone. A refresh came for the Edge in 2011 with a reworked exterior that kept up with Ford’s then-current design language, as well as a refreshed interior. The basic bones of the CUV hadn’t really changed since 2007, but all that changes for 2015.

Meet the all-new 2015 Ford Edge. Ford says the new crossover is an evolution of the Edge design idea with the new model pushing the envelope in packaging with more equipment and features that customers are looking for these days. A slew of new techno-features like a standard EcoBoost engine, an available 2.7-liter, V-6 EcoBoost engine, an adaptive steering system, active grille shutters for increased aero efficiency, and a laundry list of innovative safety equipment help push the 2015 Edge ahead of its current competition. It seems Ford’s not-so-little crossover is well positioned for the last half of the decade.

Updated 02/06/2015: Ford officially confirmed performance figures for the new 2015 Edge Sport and announced the model will be put on sale later this spring. Prices will range from $28,100 for the base version and $38,100 for the Edge Sport version. Click past the jump for the new details.

2019 Ford Edge Titanium Elite

2019 Ford Edge Titanium Elite

A new trim below the Edge ST

Introduced in 2014, the Ford Edge, one of the company’s key vehicles, gained a significant update for the 2019 model. Alongside the revised exterior, high-tech interior, and upgraded turbo engine, Ford also updated the model lineup with an ST model. Replacing the old Sport, the new Edge ST brings the performance-oriented "ST" badge into the SUV market for the first time. At the 2018 Chicago Auto Show, Ford unveiled a second new trim. It’s called the Titanium Elite and slots right between the Titanium and the ST.

Ford’s choice for a new trim seems rather awkward at first glance. Unlike other models, the Edge doesn’t have the luxury-oriented Platinum trim. The latter seemed to be the next logical step after the ST, but Ford chose to introduce a slight upgrade to the Titanium model. The Titanium Elite would make more sense if the Titanium were to be discontinued soon, but as things stand, I can’t really understand where Ford is going with this. But let’s have a closer look at what we already know about this new trim.

New trim responds to higher demand for luxury crossovers

Ford has seen a healthy eight-percent increase in sales of the Edge crossover with higher trims over the last four years. As a response, the 2019 Edge is getting a new luxury-minded trim package that should help boost consumer interest in the two-row crossover. It’s the Titanium Elite and it slots between the current Titanium and the new performance-oriented Edge ST.

Ford’s mid-size crossover gets a mid-cycle refresh

The Ford Edge has been around since 2007 and its current generation debuted in 2015. But the second-generation Edge was getting a little, well, dull, so Ford has given the mid-size crossover a sharpening. This mid-cycle refresh for the 2019 model year brings revamped aesthetics, few minor changes to the interior, and a slew of active safety equipment. In fact, Ford is claiming the 2019 Edge comes with more standard driver assist features than any of its competition.

So what makes the Edge so technologically adept? Well, the standard safety features list is long. It includes Forward Collision Warning and Dynamic Brake Support; Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection; Blind Spot Information with Cross-Traffic Alert; Lane-Keeping Alert; Lane-keeping Assist; Auto High Beams; and Hill-Start Assist. Basically, the 2019 Edge comes with all the latest (almost autonomous) driver aids without having to order an expensive option package. Here’s how the 2019 Ford Edge shapes up.

The 2019 Ford Edge ST Is Fine, But The Base Model Is The Better Buy

The 2019 Ford Edge ST Is Fine, But The Base Model Is The Better Buy

We like quick SUVs just as much as the next gearhead, but the ST lands in a funny spot

The Blue Oval just dropped cover on the new Edge ST performance SUV at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show, bolstering its lineup with a twin-turbo go-faster variant capable of sprinting to 60 mph in the low-5-second range and going around a corner with haste without falling over thanks to a sport-tuned suspension. That’s all well and good, but when you think about it, the base model is definitely a much better buy.

Ford Edge ST Takes Detroit by Storm

Ford Edge ST Takes Detroit by Storm

Ford wants a piece of the performance SUV action

The Ford booth was pretty crowded at this years Detroit Auto Show, and for good reason. Not only FoMoCo finally revived the Ranger pickup truck for the U.S. market, it also used the event to launch its first-ever performance SUV. With the recently established Ford Performance division having already delivered awesome cars like the Focus RS, Shelby Mustang GT350R, and the GT supercar, Ford decided it’s time to tackle the SUV market and commissioned an ST version of the Edge. The beefed-up variant arrives just as Ford updated the Edge for the 2019 model year, introducing both at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show.

2019 Ford Edge ST

2019 Ford Edge ST

Ford Says “Hold My Beer” As Performance SUVS Heat Up

Performance versions of SUVs and crossovers are just dumb. To put outlandish power in a top-heavy vehicle originally designed to haul people and cargo across foreboding terrain is simply asinine. In the last year, we’ve seen Chevrolet launch the Tahoe RST, Jeep launch the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, and Dodge debut the Durango SRT. Now Ford is getting into the game. Just a single day after teasing a new ST-badged model, Ford has debuted the Edge ST – yes, you read that right.

It’s a 2019 Edge crossover with a 2.7-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost V-6 making 335 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque mates to an eight-speed automatic transmission and turning all four wheels. It rides on an ST-tuned suspension and offers optional performance braking package. How crazy is that?

But really, how crazy is that? In reality, it’s not. Think back to the late 1960s when muscle cars developed from ordinary sedans and coupes. Automakers like Ford (and all the various divisions under General Motors and Chrysler) stuffed increasingly powerful V-8s into cars that, just a few years prior, wouldn’t be out of place in your grandmother’s driveway. It seems the same is becoming true for SUVs. These mommy-mobiles are turning into the 21st century’s version of the Ford Torino, Dodge Dart, and Chevy Impala. And who doesn’t love a vehicle that can pull double duty doing family errands and tearing up the autocross course? Maybe performance SUVs aren’t so dumb after all.

Let’s see how the 2019 Ford Edge ST stacks up.

Ford Shortens Summer Shutdowns To Meet Demand For Trucks, SUVs

Ford Shortens Summer Shutdowns To Meet Demand For Trucks, SUVs

Ford has announced it will reduce the length of its traditional two-week summer shutdown in order to meet high demands for the F-Series, Edge, Escape, and Explorer. The automaker says by cutting the break down to one week, it will be able to produce an additional 40,000 units to fill dealer showrooms.

“Six of our assembly plants will build for an additional week in order to ensure we’re getting more of our vehicles into dealerships,” says Bruce Hettle, Ford’s Vice President of North American Manufacturing.

The six plants include Chicago, Dearborn Truck, Kansas City, Kentucky Truck, Louisville, and Oakville.

Besides offering workers some time off, Ford uses the normal two-week period for building maintenance and machine retooling. Now those repairs and upgrades must be compressed into half the time. This year’s shutdown is scheduled for the week of June 29.

Beyond those six assembly plants, their corresponding powertrain and stamping plants will follow the same downtime schedule. In all, sixteen plants will undergo the shortened break, keeping Ford’s supply chain full of vehicles.

Ironically this news comes after assembly plant workers say Ford will be cutting weekend and overtime shifts at both the Dearborn and Kansas City assembly plants due to a shortage of F-150 steel frames. The shortage comes courtesy of Ford’s frame supplier, Metalsa S.A., located in Elizabethtown, Kentucky.

Over 28,000 people took part in last year’s challenge. On hand this year is the 2015 Expedition, Escape, Fusion Hybrid and Transit Connect Wagon, not to mention the new Edge. For the more performance-oriented clientele, Ford will provide a Fiesta ST, Focus ST, and the new Mustang EcoBoost. Driving experiences include the ST Reaction Time Challenge and a dedicated Mustang course, both of which draw similarities to an autocross run. There’s also a Street Drive course that highlights a variety of Ford’s driver’s aides technologies (such as park assist). There’s even a “ShiftPhobia” boot camp to help you learn how to row your own.

The EcoBoost Challenge is already underway, with future events scheduled for Seattle, Chicago, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Orlando, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Rochester, and Minneapolis. Register here.

2015 Ford Edge Goes Into Production; Requires 400 New Employees

2015 Ford Edge Goes Into Production; Requires 400 New Employees

With a concept vehicle introduced in November 2013 and the production design unveiled last June, Ford is really taking its time rolling out the 2015 Edge, but it won’t be too much longer until Ford dealerships around the world are selling this stylish mid-size crossover. Ahead of a sales launch that will likely begin next month, units of the new Edge began rolling off the production line at Ford’s Oakville assembly plant in Toronto, Canada this week.

As part of a transformation to this assembly plant, Ford has invested $700 million Canadian ($561 million USD) and increased its workforce by hiring 1,400 new workers to build both the 2015 Edge and as the next-gen Lincoln MKX. The extra hands will definitely be required as the new Edge becomes available in a large number of global markets over the course of this year with varying build combinations based on region.

For example, in addition to the three gas engines offered to North American buyers, the Edge will also be available with Ford’s 2.0-liter Duratorq diesel engine rated at up to 207 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque. There will even be right-hand-drive models for required markets.

2012 Ford Edge EcoBoost

2012 Ford Edge EcoBoost

Ford has announced that the 2012 Edge will be available with the company’s latest EcoBoost 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers up to 30 mpg on the highway and 21 mpg in the city. The only competitive utilities offering higher highway fuel economy than Edge with EcoBoost are a few smaller-size vehicles such as the Ford Escape Hybrid.

The engine delivers a total of 240 HP at 5,500 rpm and a peak torque of 270 lb.-ft. at 3,000 rpm. The engine will be mated to an unique 6F35 six-speed automatic transmission optimized for fuel efficiency through employment of active transmission warm-up to help reduce internal friction as the powertrain approaches normal operating temperature.

"Fuel efficiency is important to our customers," said Amy Marentic, group marketing manager, Large Cars and Crossovers. "Adding the EcoBoost engine to the new Ford Edge crossover makes for 13 vehicles delivering 30 mpg or more in the Ford showroom."

Sun, Sand, and SEMA: Ford Edge given ’Surf’s Up’ treatment for SEMA 2010

The surf’s coming to SEMA in Las Vegas, only this time, it’s going to come in a decked-out Ford Edge. The Blue Oval partnered with K-Daddyz Kustomz to create a unique 2011 Ford Edge that will be proudly displayed at the 2010 SEMA Show. Awesome, dude!

It won’t be hard to spot the car either as the blue/green/orange paint scheme pretty much gives away the surfing inspiration behind it. The crossover also comes with its own roof-mounted custom surfboard and surfboard rack.

On top of that, the leather and suede interior adds a touch of class to the crossover that’s complemented by dual DVD-mounted head rests that should keep passengers preoccupied when they’re not bathing under the sun, playing on the water or hitting the waves.

Last but not least, the tuners also lowered the Edge’s suspension and gave it 22-inch wheels, making it the perfect ride for beach-loving, wave-crashing surfers everywhere.

The surf-inspired Ford Edge is headed to the 2010 SEMA Show in Vegas so be sure to keep an eye on it, dudes!

New configurators are up for 2011 Ford Edge and 2011 Lincoln MKX

New configurators are up for 2011 Ford Edge and 2011 Lincoln MKX

Depending on how you enjoy your idle time, the 2011 Ford Edge and 2011 Lincoln MKX’s new configurators will either be another time-wasting exercise for you or something that could invariably lead to your next car purchase. Either way, both Ford and Lincoln wouldn’t mind the two scenarios the least bit, although we’d venture a guess that they’d prefer you choose the latter.

In any case, the Edge, which begins with a base price of $27,220 for the SE model – that’s for the 3.5-liter V6 engine – can be tricked-out to a 3.7-liter V6 engine with a 305-horsepower in the form of the premium Edge Sport all-wheel drive. That model will cost you an additional $10,000 plus at $38,070. Add some more goodies on it and it all tops out at somewhere in the neighborhood of $45,000.

Meanwhile, the Lincoln MKX begins with a base price of $39,145 with an all-wheel drive version that’s slightly higher in price tag at $40,995. Both variants will come with the same 3.7-liter V6 six-speed SelectShift transmission and SYNC as standard features. As far as packages for the MKX are concerned, there’s not much to work with because of the thin choices that go on the SUV.

Ford wins Pet Safe Vehicle of the Year

Okay, we have to admit that when we first heard of this award, we chuckled a bit to ourselves. Pet Safe Vehicle of the Year, really? No one ever really thinks about the safety of their pets when choosing their vehicle except for maybe Bark Buckle UP’s founder Pet Safety Lady, Christina Selter.

"Most people don’t think about it, but in only a 35 mph accident with a 60-pound pet it becomes a 2,700-pound projectile. This will injure the pet, passengers, driver or the pet may escape the vehicle and cause a second accident or become agitated and bite the first responder that is on scene doing their job," stated Selter.

With this in mind, Selter announced this year’s Pet Safe Vehicle of the Year, the Ford Edge. The award was accepted by Brett Burin, Ford Edge Marketing Manager.

"We look ahead with excitement this summer to the arrival of the new 2011 Edge, which adds even more revolutionary technology and class-leading performance. And with a suite of safety features, flexible seating and nearly 70 cubic feet of cargo space, the Ford Edge is perfect for those traveling with pets," said Brett Burin, Ford Edge Marketing Manager.

We still think it is a little silly, but, hey, if it is grand enough to be done at the 2010 New York Auto Show then it has our attention and little Fido’s attention too.
