The 3.5-liter V-6 engine features a strong, lightweight, die-cast aluminum block and lightweight four-valve-per-cylinder heads for smooth operation at high rpm. A 10.3:1 compression ratio and close-coupled catalysts will help it meet stringent ultra-low emission vehicle (ULEV) II regulations. As a result the FWD version has a fuel economy of 18 mpg city/25 mpg highway and the AWD version 17 mpg city/23 mpg highway.

The Sport version is available with an eight-piece factory-installed body kit that includes a unique front air dam, side skirts, lower door caps and a rear skirt, all finished in body color instead of the dark lower finish on other Edge models. The front air dam comes with integrated fog lamps and a lower grille insert. Edge Sport is available in four exterior colors: Black, Red Candy, Ingot Silver and a limited-run Sport Blue.
