We picked up a slightly used '08 Edge in that funky copper/orange color for Mrs Hammer about 7 months ago. Great car & jammed with cool toys. This new version adds even better looks. I'm curious about the Sport version as well.

The Sport does sound cool. I was away when this one visited, so I can't give any feedback. :(

At one time, most car companies only had a single SUV-type offering in their lineup. Today there are multiple itches to scratch, hence a wide range of choices. Ford's lineup includes several SUV-type vehicles, including the Edge.

The Edge has been with us since the 2006 model year and received a face-lift for 2011. The vehicle received a new nose plus some engine options. Our front-wheel-drive Limited model got the 3.5-liter Twin independent Variable Cam Timing (TiVCT) V6 engine that makes 285 horsepower along with 253 lb.-ft. of torque. The Sport model gets a 3.7-liter version of that engine--output bumps to 305 horsepower and 280 lb.-ft. of torque.

Aside from the Limited package, our car didn't have too many options: $395 for a blind spot monitoring system and $795 for the voice-activated navigation.

Hopefully we'll cross paths with the Sport one day soon.
