How Much Does a Ford Edge Cost?
Ford Edge SUV Prices
The Ford Edge was introduced in 2007 to mixed reviews. While critics praised its good looks it was also criticized for its cumbersome, lackluster performance. Things have changed since then. The 2011 Edge benefits from a number of upgrades inside and out, making this year's model a solid overall choice among midsize crossover SUVs.
Starting on the outside, the 2011 Ford Edge gets a few aesthetic touches that give it a rounder, sleeker, more contemporary look. In the front, it retains a 3-bar chrome grille (except for the Sport, which has a black grille) and adds LED daytime running lights as well as a new hood, fender and fascia. In the back, the Edge has a new hatch and swaps out clear taillights for more attractive red ones.
Ford Edge MSRP
| SE 3.5L V6 || $27,220 |
| SEL 3.5L V6 || $30,330 |
| Limited 3.5L V6 || $34,220 |
| Sport 3.7L V6 || $36,220 |
Moving to the interior, the new Edge shows a number of marked improvements over the previous generation. One of the most noticeable, and welcome, is the use of more expensive materials. The center stack has also been redesigned, in part, to hold Ford's unique vehicle-interface systems, the MyFord and MyFord Touch (MyFord is standard on all new edges; MyFord Touch is extra). MyFord is a screen that displays driving and vehicle information. MyFord Touch provides the ability to use voice or touch controls to oversee audio, phone, and navigation functions. These high-tech features provide the flash and the rest of the interior doesn't disappoint with comfortable seats and sufficient legroom. Passengers with a heavy load will find plenty of room between the already-large hatch and the additional capacity provided by folding-rear seats.
Under the hood, the Ford Edge has two available engines. The first, a 3.5 liter V6 that produces 285 HP, is standard on the SE, SEL, and Limited models. The top-of-the-line Edge Sport comes with a 3.7 liter V6 that pumps out 305 HP. Both engines are paired with a six-speed automatic transmission, but the SE's has manual shift paddles. All Ford Edge models except for the SE have available all-wheel drive. Fuel efficiency varies by engine and drivetrain. The base 3.5L engine earns a decent 19 mpg city/27 mpg highway. Naturally, AWD and a more powerful engine options cause these numbers to dip slightly.
On the road, the 2011 Ford Edge delivers a solid, comfortable ride. Improved insulation brings road noise to a minimum. Expect decent acceleration and handling from the Edge, both of which improve with the Sport model. One of the most commendable features of the Edge is its array of safety features, which includes antilock disc brakes, stability control, rollover avoidance, side curtain airbags, side airbags (in the front) and blind-spot mirrors—all standard. Added safety comes from the Ford MyKey system, which allows the parents of teen drivers to set speed and stereo volume limits.
A crossover can be a tricky thing. Drivers who select this type of vehicle want car-like driving performance but SUV-like cargo room and amenities. In the 2011 Ford Edge, these design features come together in a good package. Larger families may want to consider the larger Ford Flex, while younger drivers will appreciate this vehicle's cutting edge technology and athletic styling.
