The Ford Edge
The Ford Edge first hit the automotive scene in 2006 and experienced its first generation until 2014. Between 2011 and 2014, the Ford Edge received a first generation facelift to increase sales and keep up with modernity. Automotive makers developed the second generation Ford Edge in 2015 and it is that generation that you currently see in production today.
The first generation Ford Edge delivered excellent safety features and ratings. In fact, it received the following ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration:
- • Front Driver – 5 out of 5 stars
- • Front Passenger – 4 out of 5 stars
- • Side Impact – 5 out of 5 stars
- • Rollover – 4 out of 5 stars
Safety equipment included:
- • Dual front airbags
- • Side curtain airbags
- • Front side impact airbags
- • Traction control
- • Tire pressure monitoring
- • Electronic stability control
- • Anti-lock brake system
The Ford Edge proved itself to be a top-notch vehicle thanks to various awards and accolades. In fact, it received the Top Safety Pick for model vehicles built after January of 2007 from IIHS.
If you are interested in purchasing a family friendly vehicle with top-notch safety ratings, the Ford Edge is a highly recommended choice. Head on down to Liberty Cars and Trucks to check out their inventory to see what they have in store for you. Keep in mind that inventory lots continuously update their inventory. However, they are likely to have an Edge in stock that is just right for you.
The Edge has continually proved itself to be a great pick for families starting with the first generation. In fact, the Edge received recognition as the one of the “Best Cars for Families” by Parents Magazine and AAA in 2007. The roomy interior encouraged families to get out and do more together. Responsive touch controls, buttons, and switches located throughout the vehicle make it possible to interact with the car with little to no distractions.
The Ford Edge offers plenty of standard and customizable intuitive features. For instance, you can purchase a Ford Edge with push button start or a rear view camera. A rear view camera proves useful if you have children or if you live in an area where young children are prone to running and playing around. The camera provides you with a greater view of the rear of your vehicle than the rearview mirror, making it possible to avoid any unnecessary accidents.
The fact that Ford provided so many technological advancements in the Ford Edge makes it feel just a bit futuristic, but in a good way. One example of the advanced features contained in the Ford Edge is the Adaptive Cruise Control. When combined with Collision Warning, the Adaptive Cruise Control feature proves to be one of the best safety features around. Unlike standard cruise control, Adaptive Cruise Control detects when traffic slows and will automatically slow the speed of your car for you.
The Edge Has Edge
The Edge has an edge over many of its competitors for a number of reasons. For instance, it provides a smooth ride and it offers plenty of space for you, your passengers, and your luggage. It also offers incredible interior design that is obviously detailed and thought out. If you are looking for something that delivers on impressive fuel economy, opt for a Ford Edge with a baseline engine.
The Sport model offers you a substantial upgrade with regard to performance as well as many of the luxury technological features mentioned above. Keep in mind that the Sport model will cost more than the base model. Additionally, an older model Edge will come at a cheaper price than a newer model Edge. Make sure you talk to a professional at Liberty Cars and Trucks to learn more about what it is they have in stock.
It would appear that most of those who own a Ford Edge seem relatively pleased with everything the car has to offer. It currently boasts a consumer rating of 4.72 out of 5 stars, making it a worthwhile purchase for anyone looking to find something safe, reliable, and comfortable. With so many unbeatable features, there is plenty of reason to head over to Liberty Cars and Trucks today. Ask about a test drive to learn why this vehicle is a top-notch choice for you.
“Love this vehicle. So great to drive. The style, comfort and overall cost is perfect match. Was a little disappointed in gas mileage at first, but now averaging about 28/gal on highway.” Cheryl Marklund – 2016 Ford Edge Owner
“I don’t use words like great and awesome very often when describing cars. However, these words describe my 2016 Ford Edge Titanium. At least so far. My wife and I are in our 60’s and we decided to trade our larger Explorer for something that was easy to drive around town, parking lots, and shopping centers. We wanted the SUV to look great both inside and out with plenty of technology and still maintain the internal room we needed. We did not need a third row seat. We looked at the Nissan Morano, Chevy Equinox, and Jeep Grand Cherokee. After driving the Edge my wife said this is the SUV for us. We purchased the 302A package which gives us an abundance of safety features and upgrades. Sync 3 is so much easier to use. The touch screen is easy to see and navigate through and the voice commands have a much quicker response. The Edge is very easy to drive with an upscale looking and comfortable interior and a great design on the outside. MPG has been around 20 primarily around town with the 2.0 liter Ecoboost fwd engine and 20 inch wheels. The acceleration and power are very smooth and adequate for what we need on a daily basis. If you are looking for a Mid-Size Crossover I would highly recommend test driving the new Edge.” John Joseph – 2016 Ford Edge Owner
