It may be among the oldest models in the class, but the current generation of Edge still marks solid results when it comes to sales numbers. Therefore, we feel a little bit unfortunate because the 2025 Ford Edge is going to be the final production year of the generation. Namely, the company will soon reorganize the Oakville plant and adapt it for the production of all-electric cars. On the other hand, the future of models like the Ford Edge is still uncertain, though some sources speculate about moving production to China.
In any case, this will be the final production year of the current generation and for that reason, we don’t expect to see any notable changes. Instead, we are about to see the same design and features, which were last time updated back in 2019. The current model still has a couple of good things to offer, starting from capable powertrain options, a generous amount of passenger space and lots of standard equipment.
With no significant updates to come, we presume that the 2025 Ford Edge is going to hit the market sometime in the last quarter of the year.
2025 Ford Edge Design
As we’ve just mentioned, the 2025 Ford Edge will carry on in the same way. The current generation has been around since 2015 and it still rides on a good-old CD4 platform. The vehicle is surprisingly engaging to drive, not just because of peppy engines, but also because of quite engaging handling. At the same time, the Edge feels comfortable and quite relaxed.
In terms of styling, not many things have changed since the 2019 update. That refresh brought a completely new styling, which still looks decently good. It follows the company’s design language to some point and the conservative aesthetical approach definitely helped it age well. All in all, the best we could see for the next year are new color options. Even that doesn’t sound particularly likely.
Just like the exterior, the interior hasn’t changed much in the last few years. However, it still looks pretty decent. Typically for Ford models, the dashboard doesn’t look particularly stylish, while materials aren’t spectacular. On the other hand, there is a generous offer of tech and convenience features that make this cabin really appealing. For example, a massive 12-inch infotainment screen is part of the standard equipment. That’s something you will hardly find in rival models, such as Honda Passport and Chevy Blazer.
The thing we really like about this interior is the amount of passenger space. Although a mid-size SUV, there are just two rows of seats and both of them are very generous with space. The cargo area is also decent. It offers 39.2 cubic feet of space behind the second row and 73.4 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down which is, less or more, typical for the class.
Once again, we don’t believe that the 2025 Ford Edge could bring more important updates. Instead, we expect to see a very similar list of standard and available equipment to the current model. The current model comes standard with goodies like a 12-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Amazon Alexa, satellite radio, a Wi-Fi hotspot, four USB ports, a six-speaker audio system, dual-zone automatic climate control and proximity keyless entry.
Among options, you can find navigation, wireless device charging and a 12-speaker Bang &Olufsen audio system, remote start, ambient LED interior lighting, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a 110-volt household-style power outlet, a universal garage door opener and a panoramic sunroof.
As for safety features, base models are already pretty decent, with standard equipment that includes
a rearview camera, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane-departure warning, lane-keep assist, and automatic high beams.
2025 Ford Edge Engines
The 2025 Ford Edge will continue with two familiar, quite peppy powertrain options. Base versions will carry on with a good-old 2.0-liter turbo-four. It puts out around 250 horsepower – plenty enough for most drivers. For those who look for something peppier, there is an optional 2.7-liter V6. That engine puts out around 330 horsepower and offers pretty impressive dynamics for the segment. The base engine comes coupled with an 8-speed automatic, while the V6 uses a 7-speed unit.
When t comes to fuel economy, you may count on about 20 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway, which is pretty good for the segment. On the other hand, the V6 returns 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway, which is about average.
2025 Ford Edge Release Date and Price
We expect that the 2025 Ford Edge will hit the market sometime in the last quarter of the next year. Bigger changes in terms of pricing are not expected. So, we presume that base models are about to cost around 39.000 dollars.
