�Ford is continually inspired by the emotional connection that this show has with its viewers,� said Ed Molchany, Ford Brand communications manager. �They not only remake homes, they remake lives. Since our Edge owners appreciate strong design, style and technology, it is the perfect brand to highlight on �Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.��

In addition to giving away the 50 crossover vehicles from Ford, one lucky winner will be named the grand prize winner and will receive an �Extreme Garage Makeover,� courtesy of Ford.

�Extreme Makeover: Home Edition� design team members Paige Hemmis and Eduardo Xol will also be featured in the ads promoting �Edge Across America.� The ad campaign will show a series of Ford Edges driving through a garage while Paige and Eduardo check off the many destinations that the cars are going to across the country.
