Ford Canada announced in June 2007, that a gasoline-electric hybrid version of the Edge will debut in the 2010 model year. The model is expected to use a new hybrid system from Ford, pairing an electric motor with a V6 engine.
Additionally, after public presentation in 2007, Ford has been carefully pointing at future production of its HySeries Edge. This is a hybrid electric vehicle that uses 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 first introduced in the Ford Airstream concept from the 2007 Detroit Auto Show. A concept of the Ford Edge with the HySeries Drive was unveiled in the 2007 Washington DC Auto Show. The HySeries system is related to General Motors E-Flex platform. The E-Flex Platform was introduced in the 2007 Detroit Auto Show as the power train of the Chevrolet Volt concept.
This vehicle was featured in the James Bond film Quantum of Solace starring Daniel Craig as Bond, which was filmed in 2008. In 2002, starting with Die Another Day, (Pierce Brosnan as Bond) Ford and Eon Productions agreed to a three film contract to have their vehicles displayed and/or used in the Bond movies. After Quantum of Solace, their contract expired.

The facelifted Ford Edge was unveiled on February 12, 2010 at the 2010 Chicago Auto Show.

For 2015, the Ford Edge is all-new from the ground-up with a new Taurus and Explorer-like grille, new headlights, increased interior room, and a rear-view camera. The new Edge now comes with a standard EcoBoost engine, the all-new 2.0-liter (only the displacement and bore-center spacing carry over) gets a new twin-scroll turbo to boost low end torque figures. Unlike the previous 2.0-liter EcoBoost, the new unit will have a towing capacity of 3500 pounds and will be available with all-wheel-drive. Mid spec engine is a 3.5-liter V-6, with slightly reduced power output. The highest engine in the range, powering Sport models, is the new 2.7-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost V-6.
For the first time, Ford will market the Edge in European markets (as part of the company's "One Ford" ideology); it is set to sit above the Ford Kuga. Gasoline engines will not be sold in Europe, instead this market will receive a pair of Turbo Charged Duratorq Diesel engines as used in other Ford Europe products such as the Ford Mondeo. Both engines will be mated to an All Wheel Drive system as standard, there is no option for two wheel drive. The two engines are rated at 180hp and 210hp. Which output the customer receives is entirely dependent on the transmission choice, with a 6-speed manual as standard mated to the 180hp unit. An automatic option is available, mated to the 210hp unit.
