Production of the 2024 Ford Edge kicked off at the Oakville Assembly plant in Canada back in early August, marking the beginning of the end for the crossover in what is expected to be its final model year. The Edge has long been on the chopping block after soldiering on for years with no successor in site – save for the new Edge L, which will presumably only be sold in China, while its platform mate, the Lincoln Nautilus, will be built at the Changan Ford Hangzhou Assembly plant in China. In the meantime, 2024 Ford Edge production got off to a robust start at first, and only increased in the month of October, according to the automaker’s Q3 sales report.
Last month, Ford produced a total of 15,364 2024 Edge crossovers at Oakville, which is 2,227 units or 17 percent more than September. That figure also represents the most Edges Ford has built in the 2023 calendar year thus far, and brings its year-to-date total up to 109,418.
Edge production will reportedly continue at the Oakville plant until March 2024, after which the facility will be retooled for production of the forthcoming Ford Explorer EV and Lincoln Aviator EV, which are expected to be the only two models produced there moving forward. 2024 Ford Edge retail order banks closed just a couple of weeks ago, though dealers can continue to submit stock orders for the crossover throughout the remainder of the model year, which are subject to supply chain constraints, however.
As one might expect for a vehicle entering what looks to be its final model year of production, the 2024 Ford Edge carries over completely unchanged from 2023, as Ford Authority reported back in May, and hasn’t been treated to any significant changes whatsoever.
