Ford Edge Overview
Sitting at the pinnacle of our SUV range, the New Ford Edge is the epitome of modern refinement.
Potent performance, cutting-edge styling and state-of-the-art technologies put this car ahead of the crowd.
With a bold and impressive road presence, this vehicle is more than just an SUV, it’s a confident statement of intent.
More fun. Less steering.
Adaptive steering is a new technology that enables effortless driving at all times, in all conditions - and even when parking.
At lower speeds, such as manoeuvring in a car park, reduced wheel turning is required. At higher speeds, it automatically moves to a more conventional steering ratio to provide comfortable, reassuring feedback.
There’s also a Sport Mode. When activated, it makes driving on sweeping and curving roads more rewarding by requiring reduced steering input to negotiate the bend.
Technology you can control with your voice
Ford SYNC 3 lets you stay connected and control your phone, music, navigation system and climate control with intuitive voice commands or the 8” colour touchscreen.
You can even call up a list of local restaurants just by saying “I’m hungry”, or access the Michelin Guide to help you choose and book places to eat, along with hotels.
Wi-Fi connectivity is available via hotspots, with a USB modem. And Ford Emergency Assistance can automatically help call the Emergency Services in the event of an accident.
Headlamps that help you see around bends
Adaptive lighting with Ford Dynamic LED headlamps aren’t just striking; they’re smart. A series of LEDs deliver a precise light pattern and their intensely bright natural light provides exceptional illumination. Day time running lights are also included. In addition, Glare Free High Beam adjusts itself automatically, maximising visibility without dazzling other drivers. Remarkably, these new headlamps/lights also follow the road, helping you to see more clearly when driving around bends.
Sees the road signs you might miss
Whether the signs are at the side of the road or above it, permanent or temporary, Traffic Sign Recognition can identify them. An icon of that speed or no-overtaking sign appears on the instrument cluster and changes every time you enter a new limit.
This optional new technology makes driving effortless, even in tight spots.
It constantly monitors conditions and the way you drive to optimise the steering ratio – i.e., how many turns of the steering wheel you need to make.
At lower speeds such as parking, Adaptive Steering makes the vehicle more agile and easier to turn, requiring less effort. At faster speeds Adaptive Steering enhances steering responses making turning easier with reduced steering input.
With less effort driving is more pleasurable.
Confidence in changeable conditions
An intelligent All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system can determine how much grip, cornering balance and responsiveness is required in wet, dry or icy conditions and on varying terrain. The technology is intelligent, so it’s able to send drive to the front or rear axle depending on requirements. And by providing ‘torque on demand’, the system delivers exceptional handling and improved efficiency for safe, effortless driving.
Active Noise Control
Active Noise Control measures disruptive sound waves (such as noise from the engine) and cancels them out.
It separates them from the sounds you want to hear, such as music and conversation, making them crystal clear.
Or, you can just sit back and enjoy a sense of tranquility as you concentrate on the road ahead.
