It’s easy to understand why Crossover SUVs are currently so popular: they have the nimble handling of a sportier car and the power and ruggedness required to battle through bad road conditions or difficult terrain. They are beasts when it comes to transporting cargo, whether it’s a load of groceries for the family, or oddly-shaped and heavy objects.
From cottage country to the busiest downtown cores, the crossover SUV is well suited to every condition. Ford has made one of the most affordable crossover SUVs on the market in the all new for 2019 Ford Edge — let’s keep on reading to learn more about what separates this crossover SUV from the rest.
Smart Features Galore
The 2019 Ford Edge has more available driver-assist technologies than any vehicle in its class, which make it easy for you to drive with confidence and keep everybody on the road safer. Known as Ford Co-Pilot360 Technology, these vehicles are equipped with a suite of advanced features.
The Ford Edge is loaded with sensors and cameras which help make you aware of the other vehicles and objects around you. Beyond safety it makes driving, and parking, easier: available enhanced active park assist uses ultrasonic sensors in the front and rear of your vehicle to assist with parallel parking or to guide you in a perpendicular space.
Ford Sync3 AppLink makes it easy to connect with beloved third-party apps such as Waze, the popular mapping app which gives updates on road and traffic conditions in real time. Now, you can interact with the app through your SUV’s screen, or through voice-control for hands-off control while driving.
Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking braces the car when it senses that a collision is imminent. Smart features like Auto Start-Stop reduce fuel consumption and helps lower your carbon footprint, by automatically turning off the engine when the car is stopped and seamlessly turning it back on the moment your foot comes off the brake pedal. This is perfect for stop-and-go downtown urban traffic.
Power and Toughness
Today’s eco-friendly Crossover SUVs are just as tough and rugged as the ones of past generations. Ultra light engines made of compact graphite iron engine block and aluminum heads make it more efficient than past models. They come standard on every EcoBoost engine.
Still, the Ford Edge ST delivers 335 horsepower and 380-lb.ft. of torque. The 2.7L V6 turbocharged EcoBoost engine is a stunner that can handle anything the road throws at you. It’s hard to believe that an engine can deliver such power while also being so environmentally friendly — that’s the Ford Edge’s achievement, and you won’t believe it until you get behind the wheel for yourself.
Consumers have high expectations for contemporary vehicles: they need to be eco-friendly, powerful, functional, entertaining and safe. People are turning to Crossover SUVs for their versatility, and when many want the one of that truly does everything, they look to the 2019 Ford Edge.
