The Ford Authority Take

Ford Edge sales underperformed the segment by a significant margin during the first quarter of 2021. We attribute the decrease in Edge deliveries to substantially increased levels of competition in the segment from new entrants, including the Chevrolet Blazer, Honda Passport, Hyundai Santa Fe and Toyota Venza, along with substantial incentives on the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Luckily, the 2021 Ford Edge is seeing various updates in the form of a significantly larger center screen and a revised transmission on the high-performance Edge ST model.

The Ford Edge will not see a next-generation model after the current model runs its lifecycle, which is expected to be around the 2023 calendar year.

Frankie's first favorite car was a 1968 Ford Mustang, and he's had a strong appreciation for the nameplate ever since. Later in his youth he became infatuated with Eleanor, thanks to Nicholas Cage's stellar performance. Frank's a real jokester, too.

    I wish this would get a redesign. Escape to Explorer is too big a gap.

    It doesn’t sound like an edge one wants to get very close to for fear of falling…:-)

    I wish Ford would address this and the Nautilus, they are now too old and uncompetitive. I have seen the Genesis CV70 in the metal and it truly makes the Edge/Nautilus look ancient.

    I don’t get how the CHEVROLET BLAZER is so far down the list. Here in Macomb County Michigan, it seems like 1 out of 20 vehicles on the road is a Blazer.
