2009 Ford Edge Sport AWD

This Edge Sport certainly looks sharp, but is it sporty? Hardly. The 3.5-liter V-6 is left untouched, and there's no way for spirited drivers to personally select one of the six gears within the automatic transmission. The brake pedal feels as firm as a moist sponge, which doesn't inspire much confidence when trying to stop those gigantic 22-inch wheels.

I thought our last Edge - a $31,855 front-wheel-drive SEL model - offered a better mix of content and cost than this model. I'd opt for one of those, and like Rusty Blackwell suggested, look into ordering those smoked lenses and a few other Sport parts from my local Ford dealer.
