2011 Ford Edge: MPG EPA rating tops class

By Peter Chubb - Jul 15, 2010

The 3.5-liter V6 of the 2011 Ford Edge now has its official MPG rating from the EPA, and the results are very good, as the CUV tops its class. The vehicle offers 19 miles per gallon urban and 27mpg on the highway, which just edges out the Lincoln MKX.

Its closet domestic rival is the 3.0-liter V6 Chevrolet Equinox, besting it by 1 and 2mpg respectively. The thing that impresses Sam Abuelsamid from Autoblog most is the fact that the Ford engine offers more power – yet is more fuel-efficient.

However, when you look at the combined rating it does not top its class, the 2011 Ford Edge has a combined rating of 22 mpg, the 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe V6 betters that with a rating of 23 miles per gallon.

Although this is great news, the rating that we want to know the most is for the 2.0-liter Ecoboost engine. Ford will hope that the ratings are better than the four-cylinder Equinox, its rating is 22 mpg city and 32 miles per gallon highway.
