Aside from an admittedly significant refresh in 2011, the guts underpinning the midsize Ford Edge crossover (shown above as a 2012 model) haven't received much attention since it was introduced seven years ago. That is all about to change as Ford plans to roll out a new concept vehicle at the LA Auto Show that will preview the next-gen Edge, which we may have actually gotten our first look at back in February.

We've heard from numerous sources this week that a concept will be unveiled in LA previewing the 2015 Edge, and like many current Ford products (like Fusion, Focus and Fiesta), it will be sold in a number of global markets including Europe. This news isn't entirely a surprise, though, as Ford announced in September that it was investing in the Oakville, Canada assembly plant – where the Edge is produced – in order to make it a "global manufacturing plant."

      Hopefully they cut a lot of weight out of it.

          What on earth does my beliefs have to do with what we all are pretty sure what the next Edge will look like? Dont be upset and attack me because you disagree. Time to put on the big boy pants if you wanna play and debate like a real man.

      New one (at least going by the Feb pic) is a dead-ringer for the Santa Fe.

      Why does Ford keep the Edge along with the new Explorer? They are so similar.

        I was wondering the same thing about the Edge vs. the ESCAPE. It seems like those are pretty much in the same segment. Why does Ford need both?

          Forgot to add: Toyota does the same thing, only worse. It has the RAV4, Highlander and Venza, all pretty much competing in the same, or nearly the same, segments.

          The Escape is a compact, and the Edge is a midsize. The Edge has available V-6 engines, the Escape does not.

        The Flex is closer to the Explorer than the Edge. I'm not sure why Ford keeps the slow selling Flex around.

      I thought the next Ford Edge was already out, the Hyundai Santa Fe.

      So that means Diesel overseas, but not here.

      Yes, this is the replacement for the Ford Territory in Australia.

        Its a nice looking vehicle, but somehow I doubt it will be quite as good a steer as the Territory. The Territory was an exceptionally good handler for an SUV, it just lacked the development funds and export markets to see it into a real second generation. It deserved to though.
