Bought my wife a loaded 2011 Edge Limited. Great car, comfortable ride, nice interior and I love the 'glass cockpit'. Initial motivation moving to a Ford Edge was great horsepower and the MPG. Knowing that efficiency in modern engine and tranny combos greatly increased, I took the bait. From the first road trip I was greatly disappointed--the 27 MPG claim was a joke.
I should have known reading a similar review. Mistakenly thought my driving habits would make a difference.
Been driving with a soft foot since the 70s gas shortages--getting at least 1-3 better than any EPA ratings. Until the Edge. Highway driving at best gets me only 22-23.
Don't be fooled!
Improve mileage or stop advertising 27 MPG. I see that the 2012 model is rated at 30 MPG. Based on my very frustrating experience that dog probably doesn't hunt either.
Let the exaggeration continue!
