2022 Ford Edge Deletes Standard Rear Parking Sensors

After receiving a few minor updates for the 2021 model year including a handful of styling tweaks and a number of tech upgrades, the 2022 Ford Edge is following suit with some additional changes, as Ford Authority has reported over the last several weeks. Now, sources familiar with the matter have told Ford Authority that the 2022 Ford Edge will not come standard with rear parking sensors, too.

While rear parking sensors will no longer come standard on the 2022 Edge, they will be included in the Black Appearance Package for SE trims, and are standard equipment on SEL trim and above. It’s also worth noting that while Ford previously referred to this feature as a “reverse sensing system,” it now simply calls them rear parking sensors.

In addition to change, the 2022 Edge is also receiving a few additional tweaks. As Ford Authority reported back in August, the crossover is dropping its front-wheel drive configuration and will only be available with all-wheel drive. As a result, pricing for the crossover has risen roughly $2,000 across the board. The aforementioned Black Appearance Package is new for 2022, as is the SEL Adventure Package, though the latter received a name change to Sport Appearance Package shortly after its launch.

Additionally, the 2022 Edge 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 and the SEL is losing the SecuriCode Keyless Entry Keypad as standard equipment.

As Ford Authority reported 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 EV models in the coming years.

    Wow. Ford really is on a mission to selectively cheapen some models – and not just making them less expensive.

    I’m 56 years old, and am disgusted with Ford’s “woke” electrify at all costs approach to it’s future product line.. I’ve two purchased Edges in the past My current is a 2019 Titanium… If Ford doe not have a equivalent product, in the Edges size and features category, with an gas engine option, I will purchasing from Hyundai or Kia, or Honda exclusively in the future… Not providing an ice product going forward is segment suicide.. Good luck, you won’t have my dollars….

    Somebody always has to come along and screw it up.

    They didn’t learn from the Edsel, Probe, Crown Vic. Thunderbird and the Mustang Mach-E with how it’s demoralized the Mustang community.

    I guess I will buy a GM. Product for my next vehicle. Am a loyal Fod customer, but this is getting ridiculous.

    1. Gordon Keith

      I am also looking at GM. I have been a loyal ford customer since 1972. All of my trucks and SUVs that I have bought through the years were and still are Ford’s. Sadly I now catch myself looking at Gm products. More specifically Chevrolet. In both trucks and SUVs.

    Ford is cheapening everything they make these days. With less options, but raising the price. Not a smart buisness decision.
