Ford begins shipping Edge, Lincoln MKX
(autoinsidernews) - Following unidentified manufacturing issues, which forced a delay of a few weeks, Ford has started shipping its Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX crossovers to dealers today. In mid-November, Ford told dealers that the crossovers would be delayed until at least mid-December, instead of the originally scheduled late November launch.
Joseph R. Hinrichs, vice president of North American manufacturing, said Ford now is happy with the assembly line performance at the automaker's Oakville, Ontario, Canada plant, reports Trend.
Ford's president of the Americas, Mark Fields, has been promoting the Edge as the most important new vehicle Ford will launch this year.
