From a segment share standpoint, Ford Edge sales took home four percent, down two percentage points year-over-year. The Highlander commanded 12 percent, up one percentage point, while the Explorer and Grand Cherokee each accounted for 11 percent share, the former dropping one percentage point and the latter dropping four. The Santa Fe took seven percent share, up two percentage points, followed by the Telluride’s six percent share, up one percentage point. The Traverse also captured six percent share, up two percentage points. Meanwhile, all other entries in the segment posted five percent share or less.

Overall, the midsize and full-size crossover segment contracted five percent, meaning Ford Edge sales underperformed the segment average.

The Ford Authority Take

The significant decrease in Ford Edge sales during the Q4 2022 is the symptom of ongoing supplier constraints that include, but are certainly not limited to, the ongoing microchip shortage. Ford continues to navigate a very challenging supply market in order to continue production of its products.

For the 2021 model year, the 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.

Next-gen Ford Edge for China

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.

    This would be more insightful if it isolated 2-row vehicle sales.

    Supply chain issues remain a problem but when FMC announces to the world that the Edge and Lincoln Nautilus will no longer be built in North America or offered for sale here do people really want to invest $40K + in a model facing extinction? I guess Ford will wave the white flag and surrender the family-sized 5 passenger crossover market just as they said goodbye to the Focus, Fusion, and Taurus in prior years.

    I’m certain Ford would love to shift more of those customers into Explorer to boost sales to help move it back to the top.

    The Chinese Edge can stay there, it looks awful. But the new Nautilus is welcome!

    I was looking into buying an Edge, but as said, who want to buy a vehicle that’s going to be discontinued? As a Ford owner for decades and several cars and trucks later, it saddens me to see that I can no longer find a Ford vehicle that fits my and my family’s needs. If they returned a car like the Taurus back onto the market, I’d buy one in a minute.

    Ford/Lincoln owner for over 30 years. Their discontinuance of the edge and nautilus will cause me to look at another manufacturer for our vehicle needs. What a marketing disaster in my opinion

  7. David Malone,

    I waited six months for a 22 Edge ST and really love it Going on first road trip to CA next week about 6 hrs each way and it has plenty of room. I’ve had 5 Explorers since 2000 and didn’t need a third seat. No electrics in my future, so in 3 years I will switch back to Explorer if it still has a gasoline power plant. Ford needs to listen to consumers instead of clowns

    I agree with the others, what do you expect when you announce you are dropping the line. No one wants a dinosaur. I personally love my 2019 Edge ST. I do not want a EV.

      In 2019 ford had no EVs only hybrid so you didn’t have much option then.

      Why don’t you want an EV? What would prevent you from buying an EV Edge were it available?

    That’s why I left Ford/Lincoln when my lease was up. I had either an Edge, MKX, Nautilus since 2007. Makes no sense to me.
