2011 Ford Edge Priced at $27,220


The Edge is available with the same trims as last year: SE, SEL, Limited and Sport. The SE, SEL and Limited come with a 285-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Sport models get a 305-hp, 3.7-liter V-6 and an upgraded transmission that includes paddle shifters. 

All models come standard with blind spot mirrors, six airbags and anti-roll stability control. All but the SE model are available in all-wheel drive, a $1,850 option. 

The SE trim comes with just the basics: power windows, locks and mirrors, keyless entry, air conditioning and 17-inch aluminum wheels. You can add Sync, satellite radio, reverse-sensing sonar, auto-dimming rearview mirror and automatic headlamps for $800. 

The SEL is priced at $30,220. For that, you get all the features on the SE and the options plus: dual-zone automatic climate control, particulate air filter, leather-wrapped steering wheel, steering wheel-mounted audio controls and 18-inch aluminum wheels. For $1,000, you can add a rearview camera and the new MyFord Touch system, which includes Sync, an 8-inch touch-screen and two LCD monitors in the gauge cluster. For $2,500, you can get the above features plus leather upholstery and ambient lighting. 

The Limited costs $34,220 and includes all the SEL’s features plus all the above options. On top of that, you get heated front seats, 12-speaker Sony sound system and HD radio. You can add a panoramic sunroof, navigation unit, high-intensity-discharge headlamps, remote engine start and a power liftgate for $3,500. For $5,000, you can get the above options plus adaptive cruise control and a collision warning system. 

SEL and Limited models have an available Class II towing hitch that allows this crossover to tow up to 3,500 pounds. It’s a $395 option. 

The Sport, priced at $36,220, is packaged a bit differently. It comes with the more powerful 3.7-liter V-6, a unique set of 22-inch aluminum wheels and a sport-tuned suspension. The trim gets pretty much the same features as the Limited with the same available options with the notable exception of adaptive cruise control and collision warning system. All-in-all, loaded up with every available option, including a frivolous set of rear-seat LCD screens, the Edge Sport tops out at $44,330.
