Ford's North American division is looking at the 2011 Edge to lead its sales offensive. Production of this car will be at Ford's Canadian Oakville Assembly Complex. Dealerships will start receiving units of the model by the end of the year.
Ford has also recently released the pricing information for the complete Edge range, with the entry-level model being priced from $27,220.
Four models are included in the 2011 Ford Edge lineup. The SE, SEL and limited models all feature a 3.5 liter V6 unit that delivers 285hp.
In terms of power, this engine is found at the top of its class. It also offers an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 19/27 mpg (city/highway). The SE front wheel drive-only model sits at the base of the range.
Next is the SEL, which is priced from $30,220 for the front wheel drive version and at $32,070 for the all wheel drive model.
The version features a six speed automatic gearbox and dual zone air conditioning. Meanwhile, prices for the front wheel drive Limited model start from $34,220 and the all wheel drive version starts from $36,070.
