2024 Ford Edge Production Ends In March

The current-generation Ford Edge has long been on the chopping block, a two-row crossover that has soldiered on for years with no successor in sight – save for the new Edge L, which will presumably only be sold in China. Meanwhile, the 2024 Ford Edge is set to represent the end of the proverbial line for the crossover in North America when production ceases at the Oakville Assembly plant. Meanwhile, 2024 Ford Edge order banks closed this past Friday, October 13th, and now, production of the crossover is set to end in a few months, sources familiar with the matter have told Ford Authority.

At the moment, 2024 Ford Edge production is scheduled to end at the Oakville plant in March 2024, though as is always the case, this date is subject to change. Initially, it was expected that Edge production would end after the 2023 model year, but as Ford Authority reported last December, it will now extend into 2024. Production of the 2024 model began back on July 17th, 2023, and really ramped up back in August, as the automaker churned out 15,049 units that month – which is 7,457 or a whopping 98 percent more than July.

The 2024 Ford Edge soldiered into its final model year completely unchanged, which came as no surprise given its pending discontinuation. Meanwhile, production of that model and the Lincoln Nautilus are set to be replaced at the Oakville plant by all-electric versions of the Ford Explorer and Lincoln Aviator in 2025 following a retooling scheduled for Q2 of 2024.

While the all-new 2024 Lincoln Nautilus was recently revealed and is scheduled to launch in North America in early 2024, it will be built at the Changan Ford Hangzhou Assembly plant in China. As for the Ford Edge, it’s expected to be replaced by a new all-electric model at some point in the future, as Ford Authority reported this past August.

    Now that we know the “EV Pivot” is a turd for the foreseeable future, this is beyond stupid.

  2. TeeKay

    Say goodby to the Oakville plant. Replace a good product with a vehicle with very limited appeal. Agreed beyond stupid.

    They are ending the Edge. In my neck of the woods you can’t swing a dead cat without hitting one! Hell Ya Ford! Just glad I’m not in the market for a new car, Because I don’t think you’d see me on a Ford lot. Sad time to be a Ford fan.

      I’ve loved the Ford edge ever since my best friend bought 1a 2013 I finally got one in July of 2023 this year it’s a 2016 Ecoboost now your going to stop production 😭 sad

  4. Lyle

    Killing off a great vehicle. Sad.

    I love my Ford Edge and would buy another if it was available when I am ready to replace it… but no, Ford is stuck on stupid!!! EV’s are not as popular as they thought …. But Ford is going to drive on down the road of lost business and profits!

      I have been a customer of Ford since buying a used 1953 sedan when in college, new ones since 1965 (a Mustang). Our 2015 Edge Sport is a great sized-right SUV, but I’ll be damned if I buy an EV. The old power lines won’t support the added current draw of a charger — not burning the house down — and there are no chargers in a reasonable distance. Ridiculous. Unfortunately I will have to leave the Ford dealer we’ve used since 1979 and shop another brand for an ICV. Really sad.

    I love my 2010 Edge. It is not fair to let China have a hybrid Edge when we will not even have a chance to get one. Not everyone wants 3 rows of seats or a smaller SUV. You are messing up big time Ford. I’m done with Ford and that is all I have ever driven. Starting with my ‘66 Mustang. I would buy an Edge Hybrid AWD.

  7. Cleon Smith

    I Have owned 2010 2019 and a 2023 I just ordered a 2024 edge but thinking about backing out and look at Honda or Toyota

  8. Pete Gruber

    Let’s see. What we need are cars that are affordable. So let’s have Oakville build more expensive Ford and Lincoln models. Hey, we can charge more and make even more money if we make them electric! Then as a final insult let’s build a new model in China for Chinese and call it an Edge! Hard to stay loyal to the Blue Oval. Of course that may be a moot point since they won’t be building models middle class Americans can afford anyway.

    We have a 2018 Edge SEL and looked at a 2024 Edge SEL to replace it. The 2024 has been cheapened so much it is not the same car, very cheap vinyl seats, no nav system no keypad to open door, no hands free tailgate. The huge tablet on the dash has no real content.

    We are very glad that we bought our 2019 Edge ST. Not everyone wants a EV. We live full-time in our RV. Very few vehicles are built to be flat towed. The Edge ST is one of the few. I don’t know of any EV that can be flat towed.
    Rest assured that the power companies will be raising their electrical rates as more people sign on to the EV craze. Also when it finally becomes time to replace the battery in your EV you will get the shock of your life at the price. I recently read a replacement battery for a Tesla was $29,000.00, you can buy a lot of fuel for that. Either way you’re going to pay. I’d rather pay for my fuel in small increments than a big lump sum. Plus there is no better sound than an ICE car accelerating. Also I don’t want to be waiting for the EV to charge, I’d rather spend my time travelling, if on a long trip.

    As a Ford employee I believe Ford is making a huge mistake letting the Federal Government coerce them into jumping head first into EVs. The transition should be consumer driven not Government mandated.

  12. Former Ford Fan

    Everyone has said exactly what I have been thinking. Time to find another vrand

  13. Lauri Lindsay

    Ford is making a tremendous mistake by putting their eggs in the EV basket.

  14. Mary Zaydel

    I love my 2019 Ford Edge. Lots of cargo room and super comfortable on a long trip. I’m sad that when it’s time to replace my baby, an Edge won’t be an option.

  15. Stacey Shanahan

    I worked at 3 Ford dealerships since 75 and have owned 15 new Fords including 3 built in Oakville . I now own a 95 Mustang GT and a 2018 Edge Sport . I am not even close to buying an EV so I guess my loyalty to the Blue Oval days are numbered . I won’t be trading my Edge in for a new one after reading this .

  16. Pdun

    Big Mistake Ford!!! I luv my Edge and wanted to get a new one again down the road. Giving China all our American workers job is a disappointing fact to hear. Please Keep making Gas powered Edge!!! Please reconsider this decision … unbelievable how corporations make stupid decisions.
