Looking for the utility of a crossover but absolutely committed to enjoying the thrill of a performance vehicle? Fortunately, the Big Blue Oval brand has ensured you can have both. The 2011 Ford Edge Sport offers an experience that’s a cut above other models in its segment.
Pile into this one, grab the steering wheel, start the engine… and never look back! After all, with this kind of power, it’s eyes forward at all times. The machine comes with an awesome 3.7L six-cylinder engine that produces 305 HP and 280-lb.-ft. of torque. The result? A 0 to 60 MPH time of just 6.9 seconds. Also, fuel efficiency doesn’t take a substantive hit because you’re going to benefit from a 23 MPG highway average.
The 2011 Edge Sport has the necessary safety measures in place to back up all this power, too. Hill Descent Control (HDC) is a standout. It intelligently senses the road situation and surface conditions as you head down a decline, using the antilock braking system to automatically slow the wheels to enhance traction if things get a bit unwieldy. Also, standard electronic traction control is present, as are head and side-curtain airbags.
