The 2011 Edge exterior maintains its usually athletic look, with a more prominent chrome grille bracketed by stylish LED walking lights. The Edge Sport model drops the chrome in favor of blackout trim & now gets 22-inch wheels as standard equipment.
The Edge's familiar three.5-liter V6 has been upgraded for 2011 to deliver 285 horsepower, a 20-hp gain. Fuel economy has gone up slightly, . Meanwhile, the Edge Sport receives an exclusive three.7-liter engine that kicks out 305 hp & 280 pound-feet of torque. All Edge models also get new braking hardware, which has improved brake feel & shortened its stopping distance by twenty percent.
Both the look & the feel of the 2011 Edge's interior are more premium thanks to better materials & a high-tech electronics interface dubbed Ford's MyTouch. Complementing the existing Sync method, MyTouch features a new touchscreen display (it operates much like the screen of a smartphone) along with additional voice commands, & operates the Edge's array of tech features.
Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options
The 2011 Ford Edge crossover is available in SE, SEL, Limited and Sport trim levels.
The SE comes standard with 17-inch alloy wheels, full power accessories, air-conditioning, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel as well as a six-speaker CD player with an auxiliary audio jack. The SEL gains 18-inch wheels, automatic headlights, rear parking sensors, dual-zone automatic climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, upgraded cloth upholstery, a six-way power driver stool, satellite radio as well as a trunk-mounted second-row folding stool release.
The top-shelf Limited adds ambient lighting, leather seating, a 10-way power driver stool with memory settings, a power front passenger stool, heated front seats, the MyFord Touch interface, Ford Sync, USB inputs, a rearview camera as well as a premium 12-speaker Sony audio process with HD radio. The Edge Sport is equipped in a fashion similar to the Limited, though it comes with 22-inch wheels, a sport-tuned suspension and transmission paddle shifters.
Plenty of of the additional features can be added to the lower trim levels by optional packages. Other obtainable options include (depending on trim level) 20-inch wheels, a panoramic sunroof, a power liftgate, xenon headlights, adaptive cruise control, keyless ignition/entry, a dual-screen rear-seat entertainment process and an SD-card-based navigation process with real-time traffic and Sirius travel link.
Powertrains and Performance
EPA fuel economy estimates stand at 19 mpg city/27 mpg highway & 22 mpg combined for a front-drive three.5-liter model. Going with AWD drops the estimate slightly to 19/26/21 mpg. The Edge Sport has an 18/25/20 mpg rating with front-drive & 17/23/19 mpg with AWD.
The Ford Edge SE, SEL & Limited come with a three.5-liter V6 that generates 285 hp & 253 lb-ft of torque. It is connected to a six-speed automatic transmission. The Edge Sport has a three.7-liter V6 that spins out 305 hp & 280 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed auto is again standard for the Sport, but it also includes manual shift control. All trim levels come standard with front-wheel drive, & all but the SE can be equipped with all-wheel drive.
In 2010 government crash tests, last year's Ford Edge scored stars (out of) for the driver and stars for the passenger in frontal-impact tests, while it earned stars in side-impact testing for both front and rear passengers. In Insurance Institute for Highway Safety crash tests, the Edge scored the highest feasible rating of "Good" in both frontal-offset and side-impact testing. In brake testing, an all-wheel-drive Ford Edge Sport stopped from 60 mph in a respectable 121 feet.
Antilock disc brakes, stability control (with rollover avoidance logic), front-seat side airbags, full-length side curtain airbags and blind-spot mirrors are all standard. The programmable Ford MyKey technique, which can help make the Edge safer for teen drivers, also comes standard. Optional on all trims except the SE is a Vision package that includes blind-spot and cross-traffic monitoring systems.
Interior Design and Special Features
The 2011 Ford Edge has a revamped interior with a more modern design and higher-quality materials, something noticeable on models equipped with MyFord Touch. This new interface consists of new display screens and the ability to input commands for various audio, phone and navigation functions by voice or touch controls.
The Edge's front seats provide excellent support on longer journeys. In back, the reclining outboard seats are nicely formed and offer satisfactory legroom, but headroom can be tight in case you order the dual-pane "Vista Roof" option.
Without the power liftgate, the Edge's rear hatch can be hard for shorter drivers to close, but cargo capacity is a respectable 32 cubic feet with the backseat in use. Folding down the second row opens up a not-so-flat cargo floor and a max capacity of 69 cubes. That is over a Nissan Murano can manage.
The 2011 Ford Edge is most notable for its comfortable ride, which soaks up road irregularities well without feeling floaty in the method. Though its steering doesn't provide much road feel, the Edge nevertheless feels solid and secure. Sport models feel slightly sharper and more agile, though their larger wheels degrade the ride quality a bit. Every 2011 Edge has additional acoustic insulation and the result is an impressively quiet highway ride.
McPherson Ford shoppers can test drive the 2011 Ford Edge by visiting Midway Motors Super Center. More information can be obtained by calling 888-441-1785 or by logging on to www.midwaymotors.com.
