2011 Ford Edge Price, Review & Picture – New Car Reviews, With a new model waiting in the wings, the 2011 Ford Edge is nearly unchanged save for fuel-economy bumps of 1 mpg city and highway for front-drive models and 2 mpg city/1 mpg highway for all-wheel drive models. Also new is the Limited Interior Appearance Package, which includes Sienna leather upholstery and contrasting stitching on the seats, steering wheel, and shift knob.
The 2011 Ford Edge offered by Blue Oval is a crossover, mid-sized vehicle. This crossover SUV was launched in 2006 as the 2007 model and since its entry in the market, it has changed little. A Sport configuration was offered two years later in 2009.
The Edge comes with all-wheel-drive in many of its permutations. The crossover SUV has a good fuel economy as well. When utilizing the all-wheel-drive, the frontend of the Edge is weighty and it hinders on the road performance. The Edge will soon get a redesign that will include a V-6 EcoBoost twin-turbo motor option, and an improved exterior/interior. Discounts will soon be offered on 2010 configurations too as the new 2011 models enter the scene.
The Edge is a two-row of seating configuration supplying enough passenger room for five people. The vehicle does not offer a third row: this proves advantageous for those seeking cabin space and legroom. The Sync connectivity system is inside the Edge’s cabin as are a long list of nice amenities. Basically, the vehicle is spacious, comfortable, attractive, and practical.
All Ford Edge models come with a large chrome grille. Edge SEL and higher models come standard with fog lamps. Wheel sizes range from 17s on SEs to 20s on Sports that can be bumped up to 22s. Depending on trim, the Edge can be had with a cloth or leather interior. Optional features include a nine-speaker stereo, navigation system, and rear-seat entertainment. Max cargo space is 69.0 cubic-feet with the rear seats folded.
The 2011 Ford Edge’s all-aluminum 3.5-liter V-6 makes an adequate 265 horsepower and 250 pound-feet of torque, but there’s no higher-power engine option. A six-speed automatic is the only transmission choice for both front- and all-wheel drive models. The somewhat heavy Edge, especially when fitted with large wheels, handles more like a full-size SUV than a midsize one.
The Ford Edge comes standard with compliment of six airbags, including side-curtain airbags for both rows. Other safety features include four-wheel ABS, stability and traction control, seatbelt pretensioners, and a crash severity sensor.
