Some reports suggest that 2018 Ford Edge could come with first bigger updates. This mid-sized crossover is currently in its second generation. Original model came in 2006, and it was in production until 2014. The second generation is present for about three years, and many believe that next year could be a perfect timing for some updates. A production cycle will be somewhere in the middle, which is a good indicator for these claims. However, these reports don’t give more precise details about the possible change. So, we still can’t say will this be a mid-cycle refresh or just some bigger update. In both cases, 2018 Edge will bring some novelties. We expect its arrival somewhere at the end of a year.

There is a possibility to see a mid-cycle refresh, which will bring some changes in terms of exterior and interior design, some mechanical updates and similar things. However, 2018 Ford Edge will more likely come with some smaller modifications, while this big facelift should come in about year or two. So, what changes to expect. Most likely, we will see some new standard features.

Interior design will most likely remain the same, featuring the same design, materials etc. The mechanical aspect of the crossover will also remain the same.
