Earlier this year at the Chicago Auto Show, Ford unveiled its production-ready 2011 Edge. So what's new for this year's model? The folks at Kelley Blue Book are here to give you the low down on the newest addition to the Ford family of utility vehicles.
By looking at the 2011 Ford Edge you know that something's different about it--its design and appearance have undergone an obvious transformation. Some of the updates include 22-inch premium aluminum wheels, lower hood, new fenders, vertical daytime running lights, and--perhaps most the "edgy" physical change--get a tuxedo black chrome grille. Ford has put the emphasis on the crossover vibe of the Edge by installing an all-new suspension system, making the Edge sit a little lower to the ground. Based on reports I've read, the 2011 Edge runs more smoothly on the road and handles a lot better than its previous editions did. Under the hood, it has a new 305 horsepower 3.7-liter V-6 engine, giving the 2011 Edge a little better performance. However, the new feature I find most interesting is the Sony touch-sensitive dash interface that the driver can customize. It seems that Ford may just be on the "cutting edge" in pioneering the crossover utility with style and substance.
