2011 Ford Edge Sport – Click above for high-res image gallery

After spending some time with the 2011 Ford Edge Sport, it's obvious Ford did more than just a run-of-the-mill mid-cycle refresh. And with the overhauled crossover hitting showrooms this summer, more and more information is trickling out. A member of the Blue Oval forums apparently found the Edge's order guide, giving us a complete rundown of the four Edge packages available at launch.

First, let's begin with what we already know. The Edge will be available in SE, SEL, Limited and Sport trims, come standard with an overhauled 285-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 powerplant and the Sport model will get the same 305-horsepower 3.7-liter V6 that powers the 2011 Mustang V6. According to the ordering guide, Ford expects 17 percent of customers to opt for the base SE model, 39 percent to go for the mid-level SEL, 40 percent to choose the Limited and only four percent to choose the 22-inch wheels of the Sport model.

SE buyers will have two Rapid Spec option packages from which to choose, though the pickings are slim. Spec 101A includes a convenience package with auto-headlamps, a compass, keyless entry and a reverse sensing system. The SEL will add everything from the best SE model plus standard equipment including 18-inch painted aluminum wheels, heated mirrors, a six-way power driver's seat and dual-zone temperature control. The SEL trim will also afford three different packages: Rapid Spec 201A includes the eight-inch LCD MyTouch interface with SYNC and a rear-view camera while Spec 202A adds features like leather seating surfaces, heated front seats, a 10-way power driver's seat and ambient lighting.

Stand alone options include an expansive Vista Roof (available with spec 201A or 202A) and Ford's excellent navigation system (available with spec 202A). Jump to the Limited Edge and MyTouch, SYNC, leather, heated seats with power adjust in the front row and visual cues all around are all standard. The Limited has three rapid specs, with The Blue Oval expecting 301A to be the most popular. The package includes navigation, HID headlamps and the Vista Roof. Spec 302A adds BLISS blind spot protection and adaptive cruise control, while the low volume Sport model comes with scores of standard features including the aforementioned 22-inch wheels and 3.7-liter drivetrain. All options, including navigation, are a-la-carte. What the alleged Edge order guide doesn't include is pricing or any information about the 2.0-liter turbo model, which reportedly won't be available until 2011. Check the gallery below for the full guide.

      It looks like something you'd see Dr Robotnik riding around on in a Sonic game.

      Is it just me or is Ford's optioning system overly complicated?
      • 4 Years Ago
      I can't get the build and price to work on fordvehicles.com. Maybe my firewall has a port blocked or something, but it's kind of annoying.
        • 4 Years Ago
        There is no build and price for the 2011 yet, that I can see.
      • 4 Years Ago
      I like it. From one angle it resembles an X5, from the rear it looks like a smaller Range Rover Sport. The front seems to be going down the same path as Acura and Audi.

      I always forget that the Edge Sport will be riding on 22's. Those wheel wells do absolute wonders and works em right without looking gaudy. I think I found a vehicle I'd like for when I start my family in a few years.

      I am not sure why Ford went with the Ford Fusion front end. I know the Fusion is a big seller, but I would have liked if Ford gave it a new variation of the three bar grill

      I'm very disappointed you can't get Xenons and you only get 1 auto window for the price. And the sport package (the only Ford I would buy) looks dorky with the tiny Civic rotors and calipers. Sport package should include big brakes.

      I didn't see if a power liftgate was a option/feature.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I see on the older models, there was this broom stick looking 3rd bar that held the liftgate up. I hope that ghetto support prop isn't in the current model just to have the gate open?

        Sprunk,

        Well, I'm curious, if you are in the "auction" business, are you really inspecting all the vehicles with a fine tooth comb?
        And it's not just 1 blog complaining about this issue. Google Ford Edge PTU problems. It's a widespread problem AWD model, and there is a TSB out on it...Ford's gone through 3 "re-engineered" gaskets (two previous versions still didn't solve the problem)....

        First TSB was TSB 0-25-07

        Here's another list

        (36 pages long since 2007 till recent)




        Personally, I'm waiting for Ford to address this issue before deciding on purchasing the 2011..
        • 4 Years Ago
        I've never heard anything about this "problem". I work in the auction industry and have sold hundreds of these vehicle with miles from nearly nothing to over 100k and never had a complaint or arbitration issue about this. When you deal with as many vehicles as we do you can tell when there is an inherent problem with a specific vehicle. Not the case here.

        My gf drives a AWD MkX (2nd one) and has not had a problem with it at all.

      Where's my 2.0L Ecoboost option? I guess I will have to wait another year.
      • 4 Years Ago
      I am really digging this... maybe get a 2011 Edge Sport in Red AWD in 2013.
