I think you mean "Freestyle, revisited." And yes, it sort of is.
Think of it as less of an "All-New Car" and more of a mid-cycle refresh.
New powertrain, better ride quality/noise isolation, and new(ish) styling.

I agree, but I was a bit surprised at the Consumer Reports reviews. Many of the measured performance results improved considerably for the Taurus X.
They must have re-tuned the suspension as well, I suppose.

I have an Explorer and would consider the Edge for a second car...what kind of mileage are you getting? From the specs it does not seem like much of a difference then the Explorer which would be a deal killer on a second car for me.

I averaged 22.3 going to the Sierras last week, Hwy is up to 24 & city around 20, what year is your Explorer & your gas mileage...

Statistics in the hands of the media are like a lamppost to a drunk—they're used more for support than illumination.
#789 of 811 have an '07 edge as a loaner
Jul 07, 2008 (2:52 pm)
it has about 34.5k on it. it is an awd se, so fairly basic. the drivetrain seems pretty good, quiet,smooth. the driver seat is really comfortable. i bought a fusion about 3 months ago, but i would have put more thought into an edge, if i had sat in the driver seat. i had been in the passenger seat before.
the tires really suck. new hankook's. they have 2 different noises they make on the highway, especially 70 mph.
there is a lot more rear seat headroom without the vista roof.

They ditched the Hankook and Continental tires on the 08s - they come with Michelins. At least the 18s and 20s versions - not 100% sure about the 17s.
