Availability of Roof Racks to Fit 2016 Ford Edge with Panoramic Glass Roof

Question:

Finally! A roof rack that appears to work on the Ford Edge with Panoramic Roof. One problem. The product page 59770 says it works for the Gen1 Edge but isnt confirmed for Gen2 2015 and later. Do you have any plans to mount this setup on a Gen2 Edge to confirm fitment and that the roof can still open with the rack in place? Thanks!

We actually do have a selection of roof racks that fit your 2016 Ford Edge with the panoramic roof. I have attached a link to our selection for you to filter through, but I'm pretty sure you have the naked roof (no flush mounted rails) so I recommend using the Yakima JetStream roof rack which consists of the following:

60" JetStream Crossbars - Black # Y00426 OR Silver # Y00429
BaseLine Towers - # Y00146
Fit Kit - # Y06102
Fit Kit - # Y06139

Yakima actually has pictures showing this installed and the panoramic roof open, however pretty much every manufacturer says to keep any sun/moon roof closed while riding around or with any accessories installed as it will produce a whistling sound, and the glass might come in contact with mounting hardware for accessories.

For a roof rack with bars that end in the legs we have the Rhino-Rack ROC25 # RR26XR but I really like the fit of the Yakima system better than the Rhino-Rack plus if you have any accessories that mount in the T-Slot then you won't have to trim them using the Yakima system.

Attached is an installation video of a similar Yakima system (using the CoreBars) on a 2015 Ford Edge that you can check out.
