There should be a driveshaft to the rear of the vehicle and shafts to the wheels via a differential. If that equipment is not on your vehicle, you must own the FWD version as the Edge was it was sold as a FWD and AWD model in all trims.

Soo as I understand, If all Edge were sold as AWD (even if they did not have such equipment for rear traction?),, if that is soo,, it is a bad action from Ford. (because of the price is more) I will revise once again at the rear suspension. Have you seen other Edge , with rear shaft so to comply with AWD ?/ Thanks for the info.

A rear differential will look something like the pic, all though it is not for an edge. HTH
