2016 Ford Edge?
I think so…
Although not sure why this is so heavy camouflaged since we basically saw the design as a “concept” last year.
If the new Edge is based on the Fusion, it should be a fantastic driver. And quite a tough competition to anything else in the segment.
Here is the Edge Concept from last year.
Which wasn’t really such a concept car. But just one of these previews of a production model.

The looks are great. The ride is forgettable. That is what they need to change.
Kind of Lexus like…
I can see how this will be successful, basically a Lexus RX for alot less…and will be an impressive offer if it is executed as well as the fusion
However, here is my marketing idea for Ford in this segment….Take the Explorer, shorten it to a 5 seater….delete the C-Pillar so you give it a floating roof, and bring back a ford name plate…Explorer Sport (yes, it would look like a range rover copy, but it would sell like hot cakes)
Give a car like that the drive of the fusion, and it will do even better
….and off my soap box
To the first anon commenter… how do you know how it rides? That's right, it's not on the market yet. So you don't.

Um, he's talking about the current Edge's ride. Wow.
Not sure I understand why the camo….but hey, not my company.
I think the new Edge looks great – I hope they keep the gear shifter from the concept – it looks pretty amazing.
I'm not 100% sold on the face though – I think the gillette grills need to go.
Could the one in camo be the 2016 Lincoln MKX replacement? I cannot imagine that Ford/Lincoln would abandon an RX competitor.
You are right about the Lincoln. Never thought of that. It could very well be.
Let's hope it's not the Lincoln.. especially considering how they claim the models will be much more differentiated in the next generation.
I would not place the Edge in the same company, or breath for that matter, as the RX.

I wouldn't either. The RX is a jacked up egg-shaped Camry wagon with a nightmarish grin that's intended for mommies. The Edge is actually cool.

Are you blue collar?
"Are you blue collar?"
Is this a pissing contest? Happy to compare zip codes.
