TORONTO, Ontario, February 17, 2011 – The 2011 Ford Edge was named 'Canadian Utility of the Year' by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) at the Canadian International Auto Show.
"We are pleased to receive the 2011 Canadian Utility of the Year award from AJAC," said David Mondragon, president and CEO, Ford of Canada. "The Canadian-built 2011 Ford Edge features industry-leading technologies that create a whole new in-vehicle experience."
The Ford Edge was put through its paces, undergoing strenuous road and track testing by teams of skilled drivers who performed uninterrupted comparisons of each vehicle under the same conditions.
