After receiving a refresh for the 2021 model year, the 2022 Ford Edge is dropping its front-wheel drive configuration and will only be available with all-wheel drive, as Ford Authority reported back in August. As one might imagine, this move has also impacted the pricing of the 2022 Ford Edge, which will increase roughly $2,000 across the board thanks to the change.
2021 vs. 2022 Ford Edge Price Comparison
|Trim Level||2022 Ford Edge||2021 Ford Edge||+/- 2022|
For 2021, all-wheel drive was available on SE, SEL, ST-Line, and Titanium trims for an additional $1,995, which means the 2022 Edge gets a slight price increase on all models. The Edge ST came with standard all-wheel drive for 2021, which is why the price increase is smaller than the other trims.
In addition to these pricing increases, the 2022 Edge will feature a few minor changes over the 2021 model year. The crossover is losing its illuminated glovebox, as Ford Authority reported back in August, while the ST will drop its Ford Performance paint color option in favor of Atlas Blue.
Meanwhile, the Edge underwent a few additional changes for the 2021 model year, including minor styling tweaks such as an updated rear liftgate with more prominent and relocated badging, as well as the addition of two exterior colors: Carbonized Gray and Lithium Gray. Inside, the 2021 Edge is equipped with a new standard 12-inch infotainment screen, SYNC 4A, two additional USB ports, a Ceramic interior option on Titanium Elite models, and a cloth interior option for SEL trim.
Looking further into the future, as Ford Authority reported back in June of 2020, the next-generation Edge has reportedly been canceled, as the Ford Oakville Assembly Plant – which builds the Edge and the Lincoln Nautilus – will be converted to produce a total of five future EV models in the coming years.
