2023 Ford Edge Retail Order Banks Closing Next Week

Order banks for the 2023 Ford Edge opened up last July, while production of the crossover began at the Oakville Assembly plant in October. Though its future remains in doubt – at least outside of China, where a next-gen version of the Edge was recently revealed – the crossover is soldiering on in the U.S. for now. However, sources familiar with the matter have now told Ford Authority that 2023 Ford Edge retail order banks are set to close next week.

2023 Ford Edge retail order banks are now set to close on March 21st, 2023 at 10pm ET, which will be the final day for dealers to submit them for customers. Dealers will then have until March 28th to complete the Customer Order Verification Process (COVP). It is worth noting that this only applies to retail orders – not dealer stock – as those entities will be able to continue to place orders for the crossover for the remainder of the 2023 model year.

Interestingly, Ford also notes that customers whose Edge is not selected for production in the 2023 model year will not receive a transition offer, and will instead need to place a new order for a 2024 model – which seemingly confirms that the crossover will in fact live on in the U.S. for another year. Previously, Edge production at the Oakville plant was expected to run through the end of January 2024, after which it will be retooled for production of the forthcoming Ford Explorer EV and Lincoln Aviator EV.

In the meantime, the 2023 Ford Edge brings forth a few small changes to the long-running model. Those include the deletion of the Outfitters cargo packages and SecuriCode Keyless Entry Keypad, along with the addition of standard ActiveX seating and the optional ST Interior Appearance Package.

    My 2008 ford edge has a lot of things wrong the transmission is slipping and the heat don’t blow on the drivers side and had to replace wheel barring on front and it only has 117thound miles on it

    My god Ford has got to present a new generation for the edge. Its current gen has been in existence since 2016 with a couple of refreshes offered. Edges sit on lots along with its sister the Nautlius. I just can’t figure out why ford is idling so long on a decision for this segment.

      Exactly we need a size between the explorer and bronco/escape but less than the explorer cost. Crazy this 2 row is more expensive then it’s bigger brother

    The product planning boys and girls have this all in hand no doubt.
    That said, they should talk to the marketing folks about ‘continuity’ and ‘customer retention’.
    One might think Ford is more like a ‘start up’ company living on a hope and a prayer the way they go about demonstrating their market presence.
    Look forward to a replacement but don’t hold much faith in it given how they axed performance sedans previously.

    I purchased a new, 2018 EDGE TITANIUM. This Edge has an ANEMIC VEHICLE HORN. It sounds like a 1965 VW BUG HORN! When I brought it into Sunnyside Ford in Holden Ma., I was told that this model had a “HORN DELETE” prior to it’s date of manufacture. The dealership provided me with the FORD, manufacturer’s bulletin, stating the fact. For many decades, all vehicles have 2 horns, a High and a Low tone. THIS VEHICLE IS UNSAFE!!!! On a multilane highway, at speed OTHER DRIVERS CANNOT HEAR THIS VEHICLE HORN. This is a HUGE LIABILITY ON FORD, SHOULD A CRASH OCCUR!!

    After a 10 month wait I took delivery last September of my 2022 Nautilus Reserve II with all option boxes checked. A great vehicle on a tried and true platform.
    My Lincoln dealer wishes he had Nautilus to sell. He has no problem with them sitting on the lot of showroom. They sell immediately.
