Ford Edge 2011 4-door SUV
The 2011 updated Edge received a new interior, upgraded V6 engines, suspension improvements, and a turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The overall package breaks no new ground, though, and the controls were significantly worsened in versions with Ford's MyTouch technology. The touch-sensitive buttons give no tactile feedback, and a busy touch screen forces you to take your eyes off the road too much. The 3.5-liter V6 engine mated to a six-speed automatic provides lively acceleration and returned 18 mpg in our tests. But the powertrain lacks refinement, and the transmission isn't the smoothest. The ride is a bit jittery and road noise is pronounced. IIHS crash-test results are commendable.
