Ford Releases Design Rendering of Upcoming Edge

Ford is circulating this design rendering of its upcoming Edge Crossover-Utility-Vehicle in anticipation of its public debut next month at the Detroit Auto Show. Here's how Ford describes it:

"The Ford Edge crossover utility vehicle is expected to be one of the stars of the 2006 North American International Auto Show in January. Edge's bold, American design will turn heads in the CUV market - the fastest-growing vehicle segment - in a year that CUV sales are expected to surpass traditional SUVs.
"'Much like Fusion has done for the mid-size sedan, the new Ford Edge will inject a healthy dose of American design and personality into the hot crossover market,' says Peter Horbury, Ford's executive director of North America Design.
"Edge is powered by Ford's new 3.5-liter V-6 engine and new 6-speed automatic transmission - which help deliver a dynamic driving character and impressive fuel economy. Edge goes on sale in the fourth quarter 2006."
