Destined to be sold in all global markets, Ford recently confirmed the Edge as coming to Europe in 2014. That would tally with the brand's model plans, as the Blue Oval sees SUVs as a large opportunity in the UK and Europe. Sales and marketing boss Jim Farley recently told Autocar "the expanding European SUV market is a unique opportunity for Ford and lands right in our sweet spot."
The European Edge is likely to use a Mondeo platform and will be its biggest SUV in Europe, and will form the third entry in the company's European SUV range, joining the Fiesta-based Ecosport and the Focus-based Kuga.
The LA Motor Show takes place in November, with a variety of world and public vehicle debuts already announced.
