Re: 2015 Ford Edge Revealed: Leaked Image!
I'm sure the next Explorer will be inspired by what the Edge is doing, I personally don't like the current Explorer front-end. In many ways, the Edge fascia here looks better suited to the Explorer than the Edge. The Escape might be treated differently when it gets its MCE probably by MY 2016.
As for other vehicles, the Flex will be discontinued probably with the 2016 MY, around the time the next-gen Explorer launches. There are rumors about a US-designed Ford minivan, but we also have the next-gen Edge/S-Max/Galaxy options on the table by that time. Somehow I doubt Ford will issue a dedicated NA minivan at this point, but if they do it will be a break for the Global-think permeating all new Ford products.
