Next-Generation Ford Edge Interior Spied For The First Time

The 2023 model year marks the final hurrah for the Ford Edge in North America, but the crossover will live on for the Chinese market. A new generation of the Edge is headed for the Asian country, and leaked details revealed its exterior design and overall dimensions. Now, Ford Authority spotted a glimpse of the next-gen Ford Edge undergoing testing, getting a decent glimpse of its dash and confirming one important detail.

It’s a bit difficult to see past the glare on the window to see the finer details of the interior of this Ford Edge, but these photos confirm that the next-generation crossover will have a coast-to-coast screen setup. In other words, it has an expansive screen that spans the entire length of the dashboard that will relay important vehicle information to the driver as well as allow access to its infotainment system.

The redesigned Ford Edge will likely become a Chinese exclusive in the coming years, as the automaker moves to convert the Oakville Assembly Plant to produce fully electric vehicles, some of which may share similar dimensions to the current generation model. However, customers in China will have the option to get their hands on the crossover, as it will likely be exclusively built and sold in the country. Under the hood, the new Edge features the same turbocharged Ford 2.0L I4 EcoBoost as the current-generation model. It is unclear if it will gain any other additional powertrains upon its debut, but fellow platform mates like the Ford Evos and Ford Mondeo solely utilize the same engine, a trend which may continue for the crossover.

 

The new Ford Edge is expected to ride on the Ford C2 platform, which also underpins the aforementioned Ford Evos, another crossover exclusive to China. It shouldn’t be a surprise, then, that designers borrowed heavily from Evos styling when drawing up the interior of the new Edge. This includes the coast-to-coast screen setup seen in these photos. In the Evos, this screen setup is governed by Ford Sync+ 2.0, and includes a 3.6-foot wide horizontal screen encompassing a 12.3-inch digital cluster and 27-inch 4K touchscreen.

    Who cares if they don’t let the vehicle be produced in and for the USA?

    The pics are quite grainy but it appears to have an IP and a steering wheel.

    Gone are the days of a nice looking performance oriented Edge.
    2016>2018 I believe were the best years. Most new models morph into something nicer looking than the previous years. This Edge has all the looks of a “soccer moms” ride.

    This is not an attractive new Edge for America, so don’t bemoan the fact that it isn’t coming here. But, without an Edge (and possibly an Escape), Ford is burying itself in the grave. Over-reliance on pickups and EVs will be trouble at some point down the road.

      Hideous… reverse shark fin chrome on the belt line… drooping roofline (compromised cargo space, rear visibility and 3rd row head room).

    Looks like the coast-to-coast screen is pretty big is a change for sure. People might not appreciate the engineering the goes into making a screen right in front of you safe during a crash, but it is not insignificant.

    This message is for whoever it is that came up with the dumb and stupid idea of canceling the Ford Edge in lue of anything else. This is one of the best vehicles Ford has ever built. It is a SUV that doesn’t look like no other on the road. It is so beautiful in design, ride and comforts. I have a 2018 Edge sport that I purchased used. It had only 18,463 miles on it and it is loaded with practically everything it could have come with. I simply love it. It’s a performance vehicle and I have no problem putting the supposed to be sport cars in their places. I love the color, a pearl white with black interior. I couldn’t have ordered it it any better. The only thing I would have changed if I would have purchased it new is that I would have gotten it in this dark candy red color which I simply love. I’m 6’3 and I am very very comfortable with my Edge. I’m asking you Ford, please, don’t change or stop building the Edge.

      The Edge on its current platform goes back 2 the 2004 Mazda6! It 2 old and 2 expensive to build. The Escape, the Bronco Sport and the Bronco 4dr along with Ranger already straddle this price and demographic

    My wife’s 2011 Edge has been a great car. She wanted to replace with another but is going to get a Buick instead now. Yes, It’s a shame that Ford decided to stop US production of this vehicle

    Ford has made changes to design and production for the cars and parts and not for the best interest of the brand. I have an Edge and an Explorer. National backorder of Edge transmission cables and 2300 Explorer steering racks backordered as well ! WTF are you doing!!?

      Well, there is this thing called the global shortage of whatever, be it chips, seat cushions, and even door liners. COVID was(?) a hell of a thing.
