A concept of the Ford Edge with HySeries Drive was shown at the 2007 Washington Auto Show and the automaker claimed potential future production. This was a hybrid electric vehicle that used hydrogen fuel along with plug-in charging of its lithium-ion battery pack, for a combined range of over 320 kilometres (200 mi). The HySeries system was introduced in the Ford Airstream concept from the 2007 Detroit Auto Show.

For 2015, the Ford Edge redesigned with a new Taurus and Explorer-like grille, new headlights, LED combination taillights, increased interior room, and a rear-view camera. This generation of the Edge comes with a standard EcoBoost engine, the all-new 2.0L (only the displacement and bore-center spacing carry over), which has a new twin-scroll turbo to boost low-end torque figures. Unlike the previous 2.0L EcoBoost, the 2015 generation has a towing capacity of 3500 pounds and is available with all-wheel drive. Mid-spec engine is a 3.5L V6, with slightly reduced power output. The highest engine in the range, powering Sport models, is the new 2.7L twin-turbo EcoBoost V6.
For the first time, Ford markets the Edge in European markets (as part of the company's "One Ford" strategy); it sits above the Ford Kuga. Gasoline engines are not sold in Europe; instead this market receives a pair of turbo-charged Duratorq diesel engines as used in other Ford Europe products such as the Ford Mondeo. Both engines are mated to an all-wheel drive system as standard; there is no option for two-wheel drive. The two engines are rated at 180 hp and 210 hp. Which output the customer receives is entirely dependent on the transmission choice, with a 6-speed manual as standard mated to the 180 hp unit. A 6-speed PowerShift dual-clutch transmission automatic option is available, mated to the 210 hp unit.

2019 Facelift and Edge STEdit
In January 2018, Ford announced that the entire Edge lineup will be receiving a mid-cycle facelift for 2019, which replaces the existing Ford three-bar front grille with a front grille design similar to the larger Ford Explorer that debuted in 2016, new aluminum-alloy wheel options for each trim level, new exterior and interior color combinations, and a 12-speaker Bang & Olufsen B&O Play surround-sound system that replaces the existing Sony system. All models receive a newly designed eight-speed automatic transmission (featuring automatic stop-start technology), which also allows the base 2.0 L EcoBoost turbocharged Inline four-cylinder (I4) engine to gain a 5-horsepower (3.7 kW) boost, and all Edges to achieve improved United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) fuel economy ratings.
Ford also announced that a new model of Edge, the ST would be offered above the Sport as the top trim level for the line. It will feature a 2.7 L EcoBoost twin turbocharged V6 engine producing 335 horsepower (250 kW), a modest 30 horsepower (22 kW) increase over the 2018 Sport, which uses the same engine. ST styling will include as a dark-finished mesh front grille, aluminum-alloy wheels, and unique interior.
The 2019 Ford Edge will be offered in nine exterior colors, some of which are new for 2019.
In addition, the 2019 Edge will offer three new safety technologies:
- Post-collision braking: Automatically applies brake pressure when a collision event is detected.
- Evasive steering assist: Assists drivers in steering around stopped or slower vehicles in order to avoid a possible collision.
- Adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go lane centering: Allows the vehicle to maintain a comfortable driving distance and helps reduce stress during longer drives.
