    Did Ford Accidentally Leak The 2015 Edge?

    By William Maley

    Everyone has been going somewhat crazy with a PowerPoint presentation given to analysts at Deutsche Bank by Ford. The reason? Well, one of the slides in the presentation has a Ford Edge that's not like the current model. That has everyone thinking that the Edge in the presentation is what the next generation model will look like.

    The somewhat blurry image from the slide shows the Edge keeping its current shape. The only changes are a new front clip with redesigned grille, headlamps, and lower fascia with integrated fog lights.

    Is this the next-generation Ford Edge? We don't know if it is or not.

    The current Edge is on a Mazda platform, but the Escape uses the Focus platform. The old Escape used a Mazda platform, but the new one does not. I think the next Edge moves to the Fusion/Mondeo platform.

    Escape is smaller than the Edge. Part of the reason the Edge is so popular is it's larger full size car size. The Escape got a bit smaller with the redo, so now there is even more market spacing.

    Contrast with the Equinox, which is a tweener.

    Wonder if any interior bits are new. Edge needs to shed 2-300 pounds. I'd like to see a 2.3 turbo standard in the Edge. The 2.0t drove nicely but was a bit slow.

    Ford seems to have the CUV market covered ranging from the Escape to the Edge, Explorer, and Flax. They probably will add something like a raised B-Max for an Encore-sized mini CUV.

    Maybe VW will join in and bring the CrossUp here...would be a good Juke competitor in upcoming subcompact CUV wars..

    I really like the small car big attitude aspect of it. That is why I like the Sonic RS, Fiesta ST, etc.

    I guess I really do not get it, how does this ugly red car and these others you mention have a Big Attitude?
