2011 Ford Edge and Edge Sport comes with extensive exterior redesign, improved materials and craftsmanship on the interior, class-exclusive technology and new powertrains. With available MyFord Touch Systemdriver connect technology, the 2011 Ford Edge crossover wraps an engaging package with superior craftsmanship, capability and performance.
The new Ford Edge also showcases Ford’s impressive drive to bring new powertrain options. Both the Ford Edge 3.5-liter V6 and Ford Edge Sport 3.7-liter V6 use advanced engine valvetrain technology (twin independent variable camshaft timing, or Ti-VCT) and clever control strategies to increase horsepower and torque to best-in-class levels versus other standard V6 entries. The 3.5-liter V6 produces 285 horsepower and 253 lb.-ft. of torque while the 3.7-liter V6 delivers 305 horsepower and 280 lb.-ft. of torque.
With this best-in-class power, 2011 Ford Edge delivers unsurpassed fuel economy of 19 mpg city and 27 mpg highway (3.5-liter V6 FWD, SEL and Limited). This means the new 3.5-liter V6 with Ti-VCT in the 2011 Ford Edge delivers highway fuel economy that is 15 percent better than the Nissan Murano and with 20 more horsepower.
Both engines are mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox. The SelectShift Automatic™ transmission is standard on the 2011 Ford Edge SEL and Limited series, with class-exclusive paddle activation of the SelectShift standard on the 2011 Ford Edge Sport.
In addition, the arrival of the new 2.0-liter EcoBoost™ I-4 engine in the months ahead will give Edge customers still more choice and will deliver class-leading fuel economy with impressive power and torque. Fuel economy benefits are projected to be at least 10 percent better than a comparable V6 but with class-leading power and torque for an I-4.
2011 Ford Edge Sport adds more power, distinctive look
The 2011 Ford Edge Sport is powered by a 3.7-liter Ti-VCT V6 engine that produces 305 horsepower and is the same as the one in the 2011 Ford Mustang. The 2011 Ford Edge Sport includes all of the content found on Ford Edge SEL as well as a specially tuned suspension, paddle shift transmission and its own unique style.
The 2011 Ford Edge Sport’s class-exclusive 22-inch polished aluminum wheels have distinctive Tuxedo Black spoke accents. Other key styling cues include a Tuxedo Black grille, unique headlamp and taillamp treatment, body-color rocker moldings, oval chrome exhaust tips, body-color door cladding and revised body-color lower front and rear fascias.
