19/27 mpg city/highway (base V-6)
As for our Edge's fuel economy, it was not great...we came in at 17.3 mpg
that's a 20-horsepower gain with an increase in fuel economy in both highway and city driving

I didn't do that nearly as much as I thought I might; it averaged 24 mpg through the trip in a loaded Limited
Ford Edge was previously only offered with a V-6. Later in the year, that will change with the introduction of a more fuel-efficient EcoBoost model, featuring a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine and six-speed dual-clutch automatic; altogether, it's expected to earn an EPA highway rating near 30 mpg.
Otherwise, the 2011 Ford Edge is pretty good on gas—yielding 19 mpg city, 27 mpg highway for the standard model, though those numbers fall to 18 and 26 mpg when all-wheel-drive is specified (it adds roughly 175 pounds).
The 2011 Ford Edge V-6 models are typical for the class in terms of fuel economy, but the EcoBoost model to arrive later in the year should place it near the top of its class among non-hybrid models.
