If none of those models meets your needs or satisfies your ego, the automaker has one more card up its sleeve in the form of the Lincoln MKX, Edge's premium cousin.
Selection, selection, selection...
The Ford Edge wasn't the best-selling midsize crossover in Canada last year. According to Automotive News, it placed third behind the Dodge Journey and Toyota Venza.
Still, the model remains a key player not only in this particular market segment but also in Ford's stable of high-value, high-tech products. The Blue Oval company faces some stiff competition with the likes of Chevrolet Equinox, GMC Terrain, Nissan Murano and Mazda CX-7 also battling for top sales honours.
Canadian drivers have been increasingly embracing crossovers for the past couple of years. In 2010, they accounted for over 100,000 units sold in the country.
People love how these versatile machines combine the best of both worlds – cars and SUVs. Their flexible interior makes them very accommodating and practical, their driving dynamics are similar to a large sedan's, and their tall, commanding stance inspires confidence behind the wheel.
Such attributes can be appreciated the very minute you step into the 2011 Ford Edge, even a base model like my SE tester.
