The Ford Edge crossover is an ideal choice with its bold design, flexible interior, dynamic driving characteristics and list of technologies and innovative features.

The Edge delivers fuel efficiency, a spirited performance and a smooth, quiet ride from its 265-horsepower V-6 engine and 6-speed automatic transmission.

Edge also delivers on safety, with a host of standard safety features including AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control. Edge boasts a Top Safety Pick from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and achieved front and side driver five-star crash-test ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The big story for 2009 is the new Edge Sport model, aimed at customers who want a sportier look and a personalized vehicle.

The Edge Sport rolls on available 22-inch polished aluminum wheels or the standard 20-inch premium painted wheels with branded hubs, both mounted on 40-series Pirelli Scorpion Zero tires to complete the look. This marks the first time a 22-inch wheel-and-tire combination has been offered on any crossover.

The Edge Sport feels at home on a road course or twisty mountain road, but still delivers a ride agreeable for even a daily driver. Performance tuned shocks, springs and steering components deliver stunning handling.

Base model estimated mpg: 17/24

Estimated starting price: $26,000
