Ford will launch a new generation of the Ford Edge at the Auto Show in Los Angeles. The Ford SUV will have a global destination and will have a tough opponent in Europe where VW Touareg is already an unbeaten champion.
The first informations talk about a new SUV, most likely a replacement for Ford Edge. The new Ford model, announced by officials some time ago, will be a global variant also available on the European market. In other words, Ford will take advantage of this year’s edition of the Los Angeles Auto Show to unveil a new model.
SUV market expansion in Europe is a unique opportunity for Ford and we have the perfect experience to do well in this field. Jim Farley – Head of Sales and Marketing Division Ford.
2013 Ford Edge – Prices in Europe
Even a press release confirmed the launch of the new Ford Edge on the Old Continent . It’s a logical move, given that SUV sales have been increasing across the world and the price should be somewhere around 30.000 euros for the standard version.
The new 2013 Ford Edge will use the new Mondeo platform, another model that had great succes on the global market. The SUV will have an impressive size and complete a triad with the Kuga and Ecosport, based on the latest Fiesta and exhibited this fall at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
The main rival of the new 2013 Ford Edge will be Volkswagen Touareg, a European bestseller in its segment and a tough rival to beat or even Ifiniti EX, Mercedes GLK or BMW X1.
