Ford redesigned its Edge crossover for 2011, tightening up the front styling and fitting it with an innovative new instrument cluster and center panel. Think configurable displays and touch buttons.

In its second generation, Ford updated the Edge with new engines and revised body styling. The biggest change comes in the dashboard, with the MyFord Touch interface.

Ford gave the Edge a more rounded look in the front, and used black cross bars for the grille in this Sport trim version. The smoothing of metal occurs all the way around the car.

A nice new touch are these LED parking lights set into the front fascia.

The Ford Sport's engine is a 3.7-liter V-6 producing 305 horsepower. Other versions of the Edge use a 3.5-liter V-6.

Our car came with all-wheel drive, with front-wheel-drive being another option. The ride felt taut, reasonably damping out bumps while staying stable in the turns.

Although not massive, there is a enough room in the cargo area for five suitcases.

Ford radically revised the interior with the MyFord interface. Along with the 8-inch LCD on the center stack, there are two smaller LCDs in the instrument cluster.

The four-way controllers on the steering wheel spokes cycle through the different displays on the instrument cluster.

Ford calls the six-speed automatic transmission in the Edge Sport SelectShift. Although it still uses a torque converter, this transmission has been refined for quicker shifts, meaning less power loss.

Next to the speedometer are two LCD screens; the left shows vehicle information and the right contains infotainment.

This fuel economy screen on the left gives real-time miles per gallon. The screen can also show torque distribution or detailed trip information.

Without the navigation option, this right hand display shows a compass as one of its four potential screens.

As with previous Sync-equipped vehicles, you can see a paired phone's contact list on the LCD, and place calls by saying a contact's name.
