Ford Motor Company announced, at the 2006 Detroit Auto Show, that the all new 2007 Ford Edge and 2007 Lincoln MKX Crossover models will be built at the company’s production facility in Oakville, Ontario. The Oakville assembly plant is the first flexible manufacturing facility in Canada.
As a flexible manufacturing facility, the Oakville plant is capable of producing multiple models on distinct platforms and will also allow Ford to quickly respond to changing market trends.
The Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX are scheduled to appear in showrooms in the last quarter of 2006. The Lincoln MKX marks the first time in 70 years that a Lincoln vehicle has been produced in Canada.
