Ford Motor Co. will launch its upcoming ’07 Ford Edge cross/utility with a sticker price below $26,000, including destination charges.

The all-wheel-drive option will be priced less than $28,000.

Ford’s new CUV will be powered by the auto maker’s new 3.5L V-6 engine, which will be mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission jointly developed with General Motors Corp.

The Edge is slated to arrive in dealerships in late November.
