2011 Ford Edge Debuts In Chicago, On Sale This Summer

The 2011 Ford Edge and Edge Sport (pictured above) has an extensive exterior redesign, available MyFord Touch™ driver connect technology, and an all-new powertrain lineup that includes Ford's global 2.0-liter EcoBoost™ I-4 engine, the new 285 horsepower 3.5-liter Ti-VCT V-6 and 305 horsepower 3.7-liter Ti-VCT V-6 for Edge Sport. The new 2011 Edge was shown at the Chicago Auto Show.

The 2011 Edge offers several new brake-related features: Hill Start Assist, which reduces rollback on hills; Trailer Sway Control, which provides greater towing stability when equipped for trailer tow; Hydraulic Brake Assist, which provides greater braking force in emergency stops; and available segment-first Adaptive Cruise Control and Collision Warning with Brake Support, which helps reduce speed and automatically pre-charges brakes and engages an electronic brake assist system to help drivers stop more quickly when the system detects a collision is imminent.

The 2011 Ford Edge will be built at Oakville Assembly Complex in Ontario, Canada, and will be available in dealers this summer.
