2011 Ford Edge Overview

For 2011, Ford gave the Edge a mid-cycle refresh, adding high-tech features that made the Edge stand out among 2011 midsize SUVs. The Edge also received new exterior styling, upgraded interior materials and more powerful engines. The most exciting added feature, however, was the optional MyFord Touch interface, which replaced the traditional button controls with touch screens and a five-way controller. It even includes touch-sensitive sliders for the stereo volume and fan speed. Still, some test drivers reported issues with MyFord Touch, saying the system did not respond to inputs or occasionally froze. However, Ford has made firmware updates available, which make the system easier to use. Overall, reviewers said that the 2011 Ford Edge was a good SUV, but even with the high-tech MyFord Touch system, it didn’t stand out much from the rest of its crowded class.

The 2011 Ford Edge is available with either a 3.5-liter V6 engine in SE, SEL and Limited trims, or a 3.7-liter V6 in Sport models, and all were available with front- or all-wheel drive. Base SE trims include a standard tilt and telescoping steering wheel and an audio input jack, while top-of-the-line Edge Sport models come standard with upscale features like paddle shifters, 22-inch wheels, MyFord Touch, heated front seats and leather upholstery.

Other Cars to Consider

The 2011 Nissan Murano has a similarly upscale interior to the Edge, and most test drivers said it’s particularly sporty for an SUV. Reviewers wrote that although the Murano was a bit pricier than other five-seat crossovers, its interior was packed full of standard features and felt more upmarket than some competitors. The Murano uses more fuel than the Edge, but if you’re looking for a premium-feeling SUV that’s fun to drive, the Murano is a good choice.

Shoppers who prioritize price over an upscale interior or fun driving dynamics should consider the 2011 Toyota Venza. It gets great safety scores, and test drivers said its interior is well-made, even if it can’t match the Edge’s available tech features. The Venza probably won’t be as fun to drive, but its roomy cabin and good fuel economy make it a good choice.
