If I remember correctly, the Edge is not replacing the Freestyle but, will be in addition to it. I believe it's being spun off the Fusion, like the Freestyle was off the Five Hundred. Also, a poster said he didn't like that front end on the Edge. Get used to it because, that is Fords new trademark front end look. The Fusion is the first car to incorporate it but, the other Ford models will be using it soon.
