Since it’s a favorite among our sales team at College Ford Lincoln in Lethbridge, we were proud that the Ford Edge was named the 2020 IIHS Top Safety Pick. Packed with life-saving safety features, plenty of power under the hood, and state-of-the-art technology, you can choose today from three models built to suit you.
Driver safety has always been a priority at Ford. With new technologies emerging all the time, we are constantly testing new and innovative ways to keep you and those you care about most as safe as possible. The Ford Co-Pilot 360 System is a lifesaver that includes the following innovative safety features:
Pre-Collision Assist With Automatic Emergency Braking
This standard feature scans the road ahead and can alert you to potential collisions with vehicles or pedestrians it detects in your path. If an object is detected, a warning will flash on the windshield and an alarm sounds. If you are alerted and take no action, the brakes are applied automatically.
BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert
Active even when you’re not moving, radar systems on either side of your car detect when a car is present and in your blind spot. A light comes on in the corresponding side-view mirror to alert you to the vehicle you may not be able to see. *This system only detects motorized vehicles, not bikes, walkers, or other objects.* Cross-Traffic Alert warns you a moving car is coming from either side when you’re backing up with three alerts: a light on the corresponding side-view mirror, a chime, and a message in the message center.
Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go
This functions like cruise control with one exception: adaptive cruise control maintains a comfortable preset distance between you and the vehicle in front of you. Using radar technology, your car constantly scans for vehicles in front of you. In heavy traffic, your vehicle will also slow down to a stop should the vehicles ahead of you come to a stop. When traffic picks back up, your car will automatically begin to follow.
Evasive Steering Assist
This available feature can help make it easier to avoid a potential collision. It does not steer for you, but it provides steering support if the system warning goes off and you need to maneuver around the vehicle ahead.
This feature keeps you in your lane, especially in a moment of distraction, by constantly scanning your positioning within your lane and alerting you should you deviate from it.
Auto High Beam Headlights
Offered as a standard feature, the auto beam headlights can sense poor lighting conditions and automatically turn on to increase visibility. It’s a real plus for highway driving, as it also senses when another vehicle is coming from the opposite direction and dims automatically.
Although not a part of the Ford Co-Pilot 360 System, the Head-Up Display is available on most models, too. Designed to show images on a display screen in front of you as you look through the windshield, you will keep your eyes on the road - all the time. You’ll receive images including current speed, navigation, and information regarding your pre-collision assist and adaptive cruise control. This available feature is perfect for first-time drivers or consistent commuters.
The Edge is more than a pretty face. With two engines to choose from - the turbocharged, direct-injection twin-scroll 2.0L EcoBoost, and the standard, athletic 2.7L EcoBoost V6 - you get the power you need and the fuel efficiency you want.
The 2.7L EcoBoost is a powerhouse, cranking out 335 horsepower and 380lb.-ft. of torque. This engine, which comes standard in the ST, is the most powerful gas V6 engine in its class.
If you are familiar with driving through Lethbridge winters, Intelligent All-Wheel Drive is worth thinking about adding to your vehicle. It balances torque between the front and rear wheels to maximize handling and traction, saving you from wheel slip or possible hydroplaning.
SYNC 3 with Ford + Alexa takes convenience from home and puts it on the road. You’ll have access to voice navigation, traffic information, and even Amazon Prime shopping with this feature. We keep you connected, no matter where you are.
Don’t worry about forgetting that phone charger. With the available wireless charging pad, you never have to run back inside for a cord again. It’s just another way Ford is making your vehicle more convenient for you every day.
Our Hands-Free, Foot-Activated Liftgate does exactly what it says it does. Opening the liftgate by moving your foot under the back bumper makes it easier to load and unload cargo without breaking a sweat. Liftgate height can be adjusted, too, which helps with lower overhangs.
Our professional team at College Ford Lincoln in Lethbridge on 1st Avenue wants you to see for yourself why the Ford Edge is such a popular favorite. You will be so glad you did!
