The Good With MyFord Touch, the 2011 Ford Edge features an innovative, configurable instrument cluster display and a very usable cabin tech interface. Sync offers excellent voice command and connectivity with phones and music players. The 22-inch wheels come standard on the Sport version.
The Bad Fuel economy is only average for this segment. The cabin tech interface felt a bit sluggish at times.
The Bottom Line The 2011 Ford Edge's cutting-edge instrument cluster will appeal to technologists, and the vehicle provides a very practical form factor in an attractive package.
2011 Ford Edge
Although only 4 years old, the Edge is an important enough model for Ford that in its second generation, as the 2011 Ford Edge, it serves as a showcase for an innovative interior interface. Not only is the instrument cluster configurable, the center stack uses a touch panel for audio and climate controls.
But the 2011 Edge gets more than just a new dashboard; this model sees the introduction of three new engines along with revised body styling. Ford sent us the highest trim model, the Sport with all-wheel drive.
