Ford Edge Production Increased In January 2024

Over the last few months of 2023, Ford Edge production at the Oakville Assembly plant experienced some ups and downs, reaching a high of 15,364 units in October before holding steady in November and falling significantly in December, all the way down to 7,974 units. However, as production of the Ford Edge nears the end of the proverbial line – quite literally, as the crossover is slated to be discontinued soon – that number did increase in the first month of 2024, according to FoMoCo’s latest sales report.

Last month, Ford Edge production at the Oakville plant came in at 9,452 units, which is 18.5 percent or 1,478 units more than December. As Ford Authority previously reported, 2024 Ford Edge production is now scheduled to end on April 26th, and there is currently no downtime planned for the plant between now and that date. This is notable because Edge production has seen multiple pauses over the past few months, including the first two weeks of January, when plant workers were on layoff to kick off the year.

As Ford Authority previously reported, the Oakville plant is set to 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. In the meantime, an all-new Edge L  debuted in China last year, while the redesigned 2024 Lincoln Nautilus is now being built at the Changan Ford Hangzhou Assembly plant in that same country. Production of the outgoing Nautilus ended at Oakville in December, leaving the Edge as its sole product for now.

As one might expect for a vehicle currently in its final model year of production, the 2024 Ford Edge carried over completely unchanged from 2023, as Ford Authority reported last May, and it hasn’t been treated to new color options, features, or trims.
