2011 Ford Edge Priced at $27,220
The new 2011 Ford Edge, with its significant upgrades, comes in at $200 less than last year, at $27,220 � but don't be surprised when the price creeps up like bad underwear when option packages are factored in.
The Edge is available in four trim levels: SE, SEL, Limited and Sport. The SE, SEL and Limited come with a 285-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Sport boasts a 305-hp, 3.7-liter V-6 with upgraded paddle shifter transmission.
The SE trim offers just the basics: power windows, locks and mirrors, keyless entry, AC and 17-inch aluminum wheels.
The SEL, at $30,220, buys you dual-zone automatic climate control, particulate air filter, leather-wrapped steering wheel, steering wheel-mounted audio controls and 18-inch aluminum wheels.
The Limited costs $34,220 and includes heated front seats, 12-speaker Sony sound system and HD radio.
For an added $395, SEL and Limited models have an available Class II towing hitch that tows up to 3,500 pounds.
The Sport, priced at $36,220, comes with the more powerful 3.7-liter V-6, a unique set of 22-inch aluminum wheels and a sport-tuned suspension. Loaded with every available option, including rear-seat LCD screens, the Edge Sport tops out at $44,330.
My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar No-Haggle, Edmunds Price Promise, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
California Residents - Important:There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
