Autoblogger John attended a presentation where Mark Fields, Executive Vice President, Ford Motor Company; President, The Americas, gave off the vibe that the Edge is VERY important to Ford's future, and that the company has a lot of confidence in the vehicle. He again emphasized that with the crossover utility market ( CUV) is growing, Ford may have positioned itself perfectly with the Edge right as the market heats up.
Mr. Fields also said the plant at which both the Ford Edge and Lincoln version would be built at Ford’s Oakville Assembly Complex in Ontario, Canada which was being converted by to be a “completely flexible manufacturing" plant (per se).
