The base SEL and Limited models achieve an EPA rating of 19/27 mpg city/highway with a 285-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 and front-wheel drive. The automaker has yet to release fuel economy numbers for the all-wheel-drive Edge. 

The new rating compares well against the 2010 Edge’s 18/25 mpg. The Edge’s closest V-6 competitors — the 2010 Toyota Venza (19/26 mpg) and 2010 Nissan Murano (18/23 mpg) — get similar gas mileage in the city, but the Edge has an advantage on the highway. 

In another press release, Ford unveiled that the 3.7-liter, 305-hp V-6, which is standard on the Ford Edge Sport (above), achieves an EPA rating of 18/25 mpg. Neither the Murano nor the Venza has a similarly powerful option. The Venza does go in the other direction and offers a four-cylinder option that gets 21/29 mpg. The Edge will get a 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder a few months after the official launch and will likely achieve 30 mpg on the highway. 

The Edge goes on sale in August.
