New Ford Edge Concept is a Couple of Steps Before Production


What you see in the following pictures and video is a conceptual glimpse of the next generation Ford Edge that was revealed online today ahead of a world premiere at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

Not to toot our own horn, but we should mention that Josh Byrnes' "Future Car" rendering hit the spot giving us a very precise look at how this concept will evolve into a production model in the next year or so.

The second generation of Ford's mid-size SUV will have a more difficult task as Ford has made the decision to offer the Edge globally.

“The original Ford Edge offered customers in North America a fresh, compelling choice for an accommodating, efficient and safe utility vehicle,” stated Joe Hinrichs, Ford president of The Americas. “The next-generation Ford Edge previewed here will build on these cornerstones to create a global vehicle with technology to make life easier, and design and craftsmanship to appeal to customers around the globe.”

To cater to the needs of a much wider audience, Ford says that it has given the next Edge a "sleeker and sportier" appearance, along with better fuel efficiency and technologies that assist the driver, including a system that parks the car all by itself, and adaptive steering that is said to make steering at low speeds "dramatically easier".

No details were provided about the powertrain, but it's almost a given that the production model will use Ford's down-sized Eco Boost engine range.
