Re: Future Product Guide: Ford-Lincoln - AutomotiveNews

2b2 I have a quick question please. Do you know when the 2016 Ford Edge will begin production? I love the new Edge but I'm trying to hold out for the 2016 model to get Sync 3. I'm sorry if this is not actually on topic, but I thought it was close, no? Thanks!

Re: Future Product Guide: Ford-Lincoln - AutomotiveNews

Thanks 2b2 the OG is very helpful. I thought the 2016 should be starting soon but my dealership kept telling me late Spring. I suspect they were hoping I would give in and buy the 2015.

I wasn't planning to place a special order, unless I cannot find an Edge equipped the way I prefer. I told my salesman, "If you want over $40k of my money, you need to give me a car exactly like I requested." I don't think that is too much to ask, and of course, I was very nice about it.

I'm looking to get a 2016 Edge Titanium, white with stone interior and panoramic roof. Most important are the safety nannies, sync 3 and AWD. This car would be perfect if a hybrid was optional, I will most likely go with the 2.0 instead of the 3.5.

Thanks again 2b2, you've been most helpful.

Re: Future Product Guide: Ford-Lincoln - AutomotiveNews

I was 'reminded' of this thread today and guess an annual update is in order (fwiw)


snippets below from respective Brand pages (some of which are definitely out-of-date!)
LINCOLN
Aviator:
Lincoln is planning a large crossover on the same platform as the next-generation Ford Explorer to fill a big hole in its lineup. Its expected to revive the Aviator name, which was retired in 2005. Production is expected to begin in late 2018, though the vehicle may not reach dealerships until early 2019.
Coupe:
Lincoln has promised two new vehicles by 2020, not counting the Continental. One of them is the Aviator. A Ford Mustang-based luxury coupe has been a longstanding rumor, and this is the most likely addition to round out the brands lineup. It probably would arrive around the same time as the next-generation Mustang in 2020.

FORD
Ranger:
Ford is eager to give GM a run for its money in the midsize pickup segment. It plans to start building a new version of the Ranger -- a nameplate killed in the U.S. five years ago but still going strong overseas -- at the Michigan Assembly Plant in 2018, after the Focus and C-Max move out. Key for Ford will be avoiding too much overlap with the larger and more expensive F-150, a tricky proposition given that the Ranger will have a steel body and only marginally better fuel economy.
Bronco:
Within two years of the Ranger's return in 2018, Ford plans an SUV on the same platform. The target here is clearly the Jeep Wrangler, so expect a vehicle heavily focused on off-road capabilities and customization.
Model E(/E's):
Ford fought Tesla for the rights to the Model E name. That's because it wants to use the name for what amounts to a family of compact vehicles with various levels of electrification. The Model E, available as a crossover as well as a car, will follow a strategy similar to that of the Hyundai Ioniq, which is to be offered as a hybrid, plug-in hybrid and pure electric vehicle. The EV version is expected to have a range of about 200 miles per charge, a target CEO Mark Fields confirmed Ford is shooting for to challenge Tesla and the Chevrolet Bolt. Production is planned for the spring of 2019 in Mexico.
Explorer:
Significantly freshened in 2015, the Explorer is due for a redesign in 2019. It will move to Ford's flexible CD6 platform at that time.
Flex:
The Flex, a boxy alternative to the Explorer, won't live to see a second generation, but Ford is in no hurry to kill it either because it's popular in California and profitable. It will keep lurking on dealer lots until 2018, disappearing just before the next Explorer enters the pipeline.

...'nother way to put it:
if it's not good enuf to [BL]-ize, it doesn't belong in the lineup

thinking that the 9-speed oughta be ready before the end of cy2017
and that^ along with a torque-vectoring-3.0T would make a darn-nice, interim "X-Lg"...
...to keep large(ish)-Cuv-customers from forgetting about Lincoln

edit:
wondering it WAS made&marketed as an
"X-Lg"
if they could start at a (single?) higher trim level + [BL]?
edit:
without a competitive 3-row Cuv, there's gonna be, Or-SHOULD-Be
a HUGE $tep up from [BL]MKX to [BL]Navi

The temp grille looks a bit different from the current model, along with lower grille. Maybe testing had to do with engine cooling with the new grille concept?
