The Ford Edge, a midsize crossover SUV, debuted in 2007. It’s similar to the Lincoln MKX, which also shares a platform with the Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ. Unlike many competitors in its segment, the Edge has no third row, so seating is strictly limited to five. Those five people, though, will experience a refined ride in a spacious cabin with plenty of room for cargo.
The Edge gained a reputation for reliability, and an update in 2011 brought improved styling and upgraded interior materials.
A facelift for 2011 included a sleeker grille and headlight design, new wheels and a bumper with newly-introduced running lights. Inside, the Edge received MyFord Touch controls in place of traditional dashboard controls. Ford also gave the Edge three new engines: a 2-liter EcoBoost four, a 3.5-liter Duratec V6 and a 305-horsepower 3.7-liter Duratec V6 for the Sport trim.
Ford introduced the Edge in 2007 as a more stylish counterpart to -- and eventual replacement for -- the Freestyle. Many of its underpinnings, as well as its 265-horsepower 3.5-liter V6, were shared with the Mazda CX-9. Despite the absence of third-row seating, it became highly popular in its class.
