From a segment share standpoint, the Edge accounted for four percent segment share, up one percentage point year-over-year. The Explorer claimed 12 percent, up three percentage points, while the Highlander accounted for 11 percent, down two percentage points. The Grand Cherokee claimed nine percent segment share, down eight percentage points. All other segment contenders posted six percent or less in segment share.

The mainstream mid- and full-size crossover segment decreased an average of eight percent to 447,158 units in Q3 2022, meaning that the Edge outperformed the segment average.

The Ford Authority Take

The ongoing growth in Ford Edge sales can be attributed to the improved availability of the midsize crossover as Ford continues to navigate a very challenging supply market.

As a reminder, the 2021 Ford Edge was given various updates, such as a significantly larger infotainment screen and a revised transmission on the high-performance Edge ST model. For the 2022 model year, Ford dropped all front-wheel drive configurations of the Edge, as Ford Authority was first to report, meaning that the midsizer is now only available with all-wheel drive. Additionally, the 2022 Edge also saw the addition of the Black Appearance Package.

However, the future of the midsize crossover is up in the air. Currently, the Edge is assembled at the Ford Oakville Assembly Plant for North America. In 2020, The Blue Oval and the Canadian auto union, Unifor, reached an agreement that will see the facility will be retooled to produce five new electric vehicles starting in 2025. That scenario leaves the Edge without its current production facility.

Meanwhile, a next-generation Ford Edge recently leaked in China, but it’s currently unclear if this model will make its way to North America.

    It’d be more appropriate to compare the Edge sales performance versus other 2-row CD class utes… Blazer, Venza, Passport, Murano, and 2-row versions of Grand Cherokee, Santa Fe, Sorento, and Outlander (if 2-row versions of the last 3 really exist).

  2. Gary

    I do not understand what Ford is doing. Their quality has become one of the worst in the industry. They can’t seem to produce the vehicles people want. The one car with decent quality, the Edge is being discontinued. They have no cars to sell anymore. The Explorer which was redesigned in 2020 which should have been great is on the do not buy list in most reviews due to quality issues. I thought when Hackett was replaced things would get better but they seem to be recalling more vehicles than any other auto maker. Its very disappointing to see this and because of the terrible quality and not keeping their cars up to date in the US instead of China my current Ford just may be my last

    Santa Fe is only available as a 2-row. Sorento and Outlander are only 3-row.

    The VW Atlas Cross Sport is also a true competitor, since it is 2-row only compared to the standard Atlas which is 3-row.

  4. Charles Georgoudis

    I also don’t understand what Ford is trying to accomplish by discontinuing the Edge. I’m in the market for a new vehicle and I’ve been a loyal Ford man for many years, but here lately I’m getting the feeling that my patronage isn’t any longer wanted. I’ve been looking to replace my 2002 Taurus, which has been a very faithful and dependable vehicle since I bought it new, with something similar, but what does Ford offer that’s close? The soon to be discontinued EDGE? I don’t need a pick-up, I’ve already got an F-150 and I don’t particularly want a vehicle that is on a death watch. I want a V6, but finding a Ford model equipped with that engine will cost me a small fortune. I’m not particularly pleased with the Eco-boost engines because of their record for failure. I can’t see buying an expensive and heavy Explorer because it’s base engine is a 4 cylinder Eco-Boost power plant. The philosophy of small displacement powerplants being forced to produce high horsepower may be a good idea on the race track, but it’s a bad idea in a street driven scenario. I just don’t want to invest tens of thousands of dollars for a vehicle that’s powered by an engine that’s sitting on the ragged edge of force-fed destruction. I really don’t know if I can be a faithful Ford customer any longer. It’s been fifty years of Fords only, now what? There just isn’t anything that interests me without having to spend a small fortune for a vehicle that is more a truck than a car that’s actually too bulky and large for my family’s liking. I want a car that’s larger than a Mustang, more like my good old Taurus. Ford, you’re messing things up and it’s going to be costly for you in more ways than one.

  5. Nancy

    I think discontinuing the Ford Edge is a big mistake. I’m driving my third new Edge and the 2022 is the best yet. It is much more comfortable than an Escape and not so bulky to drive as the Explorer. If you don’t keep the Edge I’m afraid I’ll have to look farther than Ford for for my next new vehicle.
