Depending on how you enjoy your idle time, the 2011 Ford Edge and 2011 Lincoln MKX’s new configurators will either be another time-wasting exercise for you or something that could invariably lead to your next car purchase. Either way, both Ford and Lincoln wouldn’t mind the two scenarios the least bit, although we’d venture a guess that they’d prefer you choose the latter.

In any case, the Edge, which begins with a base price of $27,220 for the SE model – that’s for the 3.5-liter V6 engine – can be tricked-out to a 3.7-liter V6 engine with a 305-horsepower in the form of the premium Edge Sport all-wheel drive. That model will cost you an additional $10,000 plus at $38,070. Add some more goodies on it and it all tops out at somewhere in the neighborhood of $45,000.

Meanwhile, the Lincoln MKX begins with a base price of $39,145 with an all-wheel drive version that’s slightly higher in price tag at $40,995. Both variants will come with the same 3.7-liter V6 six-speed SelectShift transmission and SYNC as standard features. As far as packages for the MKX are concerned, there’s not much to work with because of the thin choices that go on the SUV.

Upon reading the comparison of these two models; I have to agree with other commenters that its really comically oversized, who can actually figured that the gear is much taller as you might seem? Forget it, I am a big fan of Ford; therefore, my votes goes to – MKX.

Hmmm, The edge costs $27,220 and MLX at $39,145. Not pretty bad, just go out and drive!

Eco boost isn’t an option on the configuration yet. Who know, maybe it won’t be a "base model" option either

No AWD on the base model?I want an Eco boost Edge with AWD. I don’t need or want a V6.I hate it when manufacturers do that.

The grill reminds me of Geely’s recent grills - the whole part about it being designed after a warrior’s mask. It looks like a knight’s mask.

Ford has really gotten my interest, a build your own section for suv buyers.

It’s a bit pricey don’t you think?

Isn’t it all the same, the way they do it on other cars.

Well, it seems configurators of every car company are now competing. Hmm, I guess this will be very interesting aside from being time-wasting
exercise.
