Unknown Mule (most likely NG Edge)

found this on facebook in one of the Bronco groups-but I’m 100% sure this isn’t a Bronco mule or might not be a Ford product-any ideas? Only thing that comes to mind is an early NG Edge mule?

I don't know what it is but it's definitely not a Bronco. You can tell whatever it is is unibody looking at the wheel wells, there's no frame under there. NG Edge seems as good of a guess as any.

The greenhouse plastic bits are exactly the same as the current Edge...so I'll go with NG Edge. The rear end is slightly interesting with the wheelwells being cut out like that-I wonder if its moving to the Explorer platform?

That's what I was hoping but all the insiders are saying FWD.

Looks kind of lifted to me.  Odd gap from front tire to wheel well.  Just looks too tall to be an Edge.

 

Unless it's a 3 Row Edge, it looks a bit long too.

 

Not really sure what it is.

It has the sloping roof line of the aviator but looks like it’s a bit jacked up. Aviator Raptor it is!!!😂😂😂

Since past the C Pillar is all jacked up and the suspension is riding high-could this be an mule for a smaller pickup?

Are those ford wheels? They look kinda like Mazda wheels.

you'd think with a vehicle sitting there by itself like that that whoever took those would've taken a slew of photos.  I would've.

 

I remember years ago I saw 3 EcoSports (pre our version/refresh) randomly in a parking lot here in south Florida - I turned around, parked and hopped out and started taking pictures from lots of angles.

I don’t see any exhaust routing.  The front wheelhouse also looks odd.  Could be one of the two EV CUVs(presumably Edge/Nautilus) Ford is developing.

It could also have the exhaust routed exclusively on the passenger side

I thought that the new CD6 platform also has a FWD derivative? Silvrsvt never mentioned RWD, just the Explorer "platform".

That was the rumor a few years ago. Seems that's no longer the case.

CD6 was designed to accommodate rear wheel drive, all wheel drive and front wheel drive derivatives using common components on a shared architecture.

I thought Ford said that C2 can cover up to Edge,

Maybe all they’re doing is re-uniting C1 and CD4

I remember reading that a few places - don't know if it was official or just here.

As far as I know CD6 is a one off - Explorer/Aviator as the sedan was killed off early and Mustang will just sit beside and share whatever parts it can, they’re not going to make a whole new Mustang, just heavy evolution.

 

All that happened when JH cut vehicle spending, FWD car/ Ute handled mostly under expanded C2 exceptions being subcompacts and fwd Transit custom in Europe, they’re different but share a lot of things under the skin

Well Hackett did take billions away from some existing vehicle product cycles to go fund BEV, AV, and connectivity. Edge would be one of those casualties, well sorta....

See I like Shakira, but she's not exactly A-list right now.

Really surprising picks tbh.
