Motorists demand more from today’s SUV's. Ford knows this, and has designed its latest Edge ready for your next adventure. So wether you are negotiating the city streets or packing for a weekend of camping, no matter where or when you go, intelligent All-Wheel Drive gives you extra confidence on every trip. Visionary, ingenious, remarkable, just like every car that bears the signature of Henry Ford.
The SUV's long and tall build has been carefully shaped for aerodynamics and instant appeal. The roofline rises high from the windscreen and falls away to a rear spoiler.
The striking front is framed by powerful automatic headlights with auto high beam, piercing LED adaptive headligths are an optional extra. At the rear LED lights make sure the Edge is seen in dark or misty weather conditions, and like the 19-inch alloy wheels are a standard feature. Gain the most appealing exterior finish by selecting from one of thirteen paint options.
Unsurprisingly, the Edge contains a spacious cabin within its attractive body. It scores big on headroom, legroom and luggage capacity. As is befiting of a modern SUV, sophisticated suspension and accoustic glass help dampen exterior sounds so you travel in an oasis of calm. Where fitted, a panoramic glass roof allows you to enjoy the outside from within the car. The powered sunblind retracts backwards quickly and returns to its position just as efficiently for privacy. All models offer rear privacy glass providing privacy for passengers and personal items.
The cabin is a connected place to travel in as a variety of Ford technology has been fitted. The entry-level Zetec entertains and informs you with a DAB digital radio and USB, auxiliary and SD-card input. They enable you to link personal music players to the system and control them via an eight-inch TFT touchscreen. Ford SYNC 2 with Voice Control is the standard infotainment technology which combines audio playback with satellite navigation (where fitted), climate control and compatible smartphone functions. The 8-inch TFT instrument cluster is supported by 9 speaker primary audio on the Zetec and Titanium and 12 speaker Sony audio in Sport versions for even greater sound quality. Every model comes with Active Noise Control to diminish unwated noise even further from within the cabin.
Two engine options deliver power in addition to efficiency, rather than one or the other. The manufacturers impressive Duratorq diesel engine is available in 2.0-litre 180 PS 6-speed manual and 210 PS 6-speed automatic applications. Both surge to 60mph from stationary in less than ten seconds. With auto start/stop they also consume less fuel than before and release fewer CO2 emissions. Both engines feature impressive Torque figures of 400-450 NM. The diesel option is a 2.0-litre Duratorq ranging from 118bhp to 207bhp. All versions feature intelligent all-wheel drive which transfers power to the wheels with the most grip for more secure performance.
This smart SUV knows how to keep you and your passengers safe as it features multiple active technologies and robust passive fixtures. The former includes Roll Stability Control which uses sensors to monitor output before subtle corrections are made to stabilise the vehicle. Curve Control comes into play when cornering at speed by reducing torque or braking if you enter a bend too quickly. Ford’s standard stability and traction systems are included across the range for protection in most situations, as are airbags for the front, side, curtain and driver’s knee. ISOFIX child seat mountings are another no-cost addition that hold infants securely.
