The upcoming 2024 Ford Edge is happening, after all. In case you didn’t know, many credible reports suggested the end of production for this model. Ford Edge and Lincoln Nautilus were so close to facing the axe, but, things are different now. The Ford Oakville Plant will continue to build these two models in 2024, which is great to hear.
On the other hand, we don’t know yet which upgrades will new Edge gain. Perhaps, the China-spec Edge is suggesting how the all-new Edge will look in the US. This is a mid-size crossover, and it is present for almost two decades. It is a reliable model with a modern design, smooth ride, comfortable interior, and good safety.
Ford Edge Spy Shots
As we said, spy photos of the 2024 Ford Edge for the Chinese market are online. It is the new-gen Edge in Asia, which is great to hear. However, we don’t know what will happen with the US-spec Edge crossover. Hopefully, the American version will gain the same visual updates. In any case, spied prototype wears a lot of camouflage, especially around the front fascia.
This clearly suggests refreshed front part, with a new grille, and headlights. On top of that, new wheels are visible at first glance. New grille is wider and it sports larger openings. We also spotted new door handles and new taillights. Ford will probably introduce new colors and some new exterior elements. Dimensionally, the Edge will slightly grow in size and it will feature a longer wheelbase (116.1 inches).
Interior Gets Major Upgrade
A longer wheelbase also means more interior room. However, don’t expect significantly more space. We don’t know much about the interior of the 2024 Ford Edge at the moment. However, many reports are predicting a wider infotainment system, new digital instrument cluster, and new center console.
The gear shifter is smaller than it is now, and there is also new steering wheel. All of the upgrades are perfectly reasonable, as this is the next-gen Edge. On the other hand, the Edge crossover in America will probably gain mild or minor interior updates.
Edge and Edge Hybrid Specs
Under the hood, the 2024 Ford Edge will sport the same engines as the outgoing model. Of course, we are talking about the model in the US. For example, there is a 2.0-liter EcoBoost with 248 horsepower. On top of that, Ford provides a hybrid version with 270 horsepower. There is also the Edge ST high-performance version with 335 hp. In China, Edge gets different powertrain options.
2024 Ford Edge Price and Release Date
The price of the 2024 Ford Edge will most likely remain. This means the next model will start at $37,000, more or less. On the other hand, the range-topping trim level should cost closer to $45,000. The sales will begin later in 2023. However, we don’t know if the 2024 Edge will be the last one ever produced in United States. This crossover will continue its journey in China, along with Lincoln Nautilus.
