I did notice that the CX-7 requires Premium gas for the Turbo 4cyl engine, but the Edge (sister vehicle) will need only 87 grade for the 3.5 duratec V6. I guess it comes down to do you want to pay the extra amount at the pump for the Turbo?

I would not call them "sister" vehicles. They are actually quite different. One is Japanese, the other is American. Although they are built on a version of the Mazda6 platform, they are not the same. Not even close.
The Escape/Tribute are "sister" vehicles.
The MKX/Edge will be "sister" vehicles.
I would say the the CX-7 and Edge are more like "distant cousins".

Oh my god, the new CRV looks so bad i can't believe honda did that. Man is it ugly
I don't think the new crv nor rav 4 will be able to handle the much luxurious santa fe. Better exterior, interior and roomier, quieter ride, more value and still it will be cheaper by a couple of grand
Hyundai is coming on the japanese furiously

I am really considering a Saturn Outlook, a Ford Edge, or a Mazda CX-7 for my next vehicle.
My preference of those three is the Edge. I like the CX7's looks but I think a turbo4 is the wrong choice for this segment. And it uses premium fuel. The Outlook looks good but it's bigger than the other two. I'd be more interested in the new Vue coming in 08. The Edge looks sharp, it's the right size and it has a strong V6...something Ford has been missing until now.

Have you given the 07 Mitsubishi Outlander a thought? You might want to test dive that as well.I think it easily fits in your list of wants.

Isn't the Outlander a "Station Wagon Redux" ???
