The Edge is a premium mid-size crossover SUV (CUV) manufactured by Ford, based on the Ford CD3 platform — and marketed in slightly modified form as the Lincoln MKX. The platform is shared with Mazda CX-9 crossover, the Ford Fusion, Mercury Milan, and the Lincoln MKZ sedans. The Edge is the smaller of Ford’s present crossover lineup as follows:

The Edge made its public debut at the 2006 North American International Auto Show in January 2006, with production starting in the October 2006 as a 2007 model, with the first ones reaching dealerships just before December 25, 2006, because of a brief delay in production due to issues with the supplier[citation needed]. The Edge (codename U387) is built at Ford’s Oakville Assembly Complex in Oakville, Ontario, Canada.

As a crossover vehicle, the Edge bridges the gap between minivans like the now discontinued Freestar, and truck-based sport utility vehicles such as the Explorer. The Edge officially slots below the Taurus X in Ford’s crossover SUV lineup. The Edge implements Ford’s front end design with a three bar chrome grille.

Although North America is the primary market for the vehicle, Ford also intends to market the Edge in 40 additional countries, including United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and Panama. The Edge is also marketed in Israel and is expected to arrive in Brazil late 2008.

Edge’s U.S. sales have increased steadily since its launch, outselling all other mid- to large-sized crossover SUVs from January to June 2007 with over 58,000 units sold. [1][2] 2007 sales totaled over 130,000 units. The Edge is now the best-selling mid-size SUV in the United States.
