Spy Shots: New Look, New Power for Ford Edge Update

Ford Edge update

Ford's update to the Edge CUV has it looking badder and bolder for the 2011 model year, if these shots from Brenda Priddy's spy photographers are any indication.

"Underneath the camouflage, we can see two bars running across the grill that look more truck-like than the current model," Priddy notes. She adds that other sightings have shown a chrome ring running around the entire grille opening, with the whole assembly looking not unlike the Super Duty face. New projector headlights and a lower fascia also resemble the 2010 Fusion Sport.

In back, the Edge will get new, chrome-ringed taillights and possibly a new bumper. A large piece of camouflage draped over the entire dash suggests the interior may also get a refresh. Priddy adds that the Edge and its Lincoln MKX linemate will get the 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine that Ford recently announced. The automaker says the boosted powerplant is good for 230 hp and 240 lb.-ft. torque.
