Introducing: 2018 Ford Edge
The 2018 Ford Edge is a smart, agile SUV, backed by the dependability of Ford. For the 2018 model year, a few technology and appearance packages have been added to enhance the driver’s experience. The sporty design has been upgraded as well, with an available SEL Sport Appearance Package. This package features darker headlights, a redesigned grille, and a rear spoiler (see below).
Safe & Smart
New for the 2018 Ford Edge is the Safe and Smart Package, which consists of the following:
- adaptive cruise control,
- collision warning and brake support,
- blind spot monitoring system,
- cross-traffic alert,
- lane keep assist, and
- automatic high beams and rain-sensing wipers.
These features offer the driver incredible enhancements not only for convenience, but safety. Of course, they do not replace the driver’s focus and attention; however, they will certainly help drivers to remain focused, whether on a morning commute or on a long road trip. In addition, there are more available upgrades, such as: a 180-degree camera nestled into the grille to give you an extra set of eyes and the new and improved Enhanced Active Park Assist. Though you still have to control the pedals, the 2018 Ford Edge will direct you into either a perpendicular or parallel parking space, using cameras, sensors, and voice cues!
The Ford SYNC system also has gotten smarter. Now utilize Apple Car Play or Android Auto to connect your Apple or Android phone to access Siri, Maps, your music, and more–all while keeping your hands on the steering wheel and your eyes on the road.
Capable & Strong
But the 2018 Ford Edge isn’t just about the smart and sleek features and design; it’s about the capability of available AWD and towing packages. It’s about having up to 73.4 cu. ft. of cargo space with flat-folding rear seats. And it’s about the ease of a hands-free foot-activated liftgate. With so many features and convenience, what’s not to love about this SUV?
