Ford is breaking out the big guns for the 2011 Edge Sport, by adding one of the engines from the company's Mustang pony-car.

Don't get too excited, enthusiasts, because it's not the new 5.0-liter V-8, but rather the 3.7-liter V-6, that's going in the Sport version of the refreshed Edge. That's still a plenty potent motor, which makes 305 horsepower, which is 40 more than that of the 2010 Edge Sport.

Ford expects the 2011 Edge Sport to retain the current models 20 mpg fuel-economy rating with front-wheel drive, thanks to greater engine efficiency, aerodyamic tweaks, and a lower idle speed.

Sport models will be distinguished by a painted black grille, 22-inch aluminum wheels, and a sport-tuned suspension. There will also be paddle shifters to allow for manual shifting of the automatic transmission.

The 2011 Ford Edge Sport will have a base price of $36,220 when it goes on sale near the end of this summer.
