The 2011 Ford Edge has start shipping in the US and Canada. The first version of the Edge was introduced in 2006. To date, 400,000 units of Edge have been sold. The 2011 Ford Edge features new styling, improved driving dynamics and industry-leading MyFord Touch technology.
“Edge defined the crossover segment when it was launched in 2006. Ford has taken a great vehicle and made it even better,” Amy Marentic, Ford’s Crossover Group Marketing Manager, said.
“The 2011 Ford Edge SEL and Limited, which account for about 80 percent of all Edge sales, have EPA-estimated fuel economy of 19 mpg city and 27 mpg highway (front-wheel drive), which is unsurpassed in each category among V6 competitors.
The new Edge is now 1 mpg better city and 2 mpg better highway – with even greater power. The standard 3.5-liter V6 engine produces 285 horsepower, best-in-class among V6 competitors and 20 more horsepower than the outgoing Edge.
MyFord Touch, standard on the 2011 Edge Limited, 2011 Edge Sport and available on the 2011 Edge SEL, defines an all-new in-car experience. It takes vehicle interior design into the realm of popular personal electronics devices such as laptop computers, mobile phones and MP3 player.” [Source: Ford Press Release]
