Confidence in changeable conditions
An Intelligent 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 able to send drive to the front or rear axle depending on requirements. And this ‘torque on demand’ system delivers exceptional handling and improved efficiency.
Adaptive Lighting with Ford Dynamic LED headlights delivers precise and intensely bright light patterns that are automatically adjusted to suit different road and driving conditions. Daytime running lights are also included and LED sequential turn indicator strips
replace traditional ‘blinking’ lights, illuminating in sequence for high visibility. In addition, Glare-free high beam adjusts itself automatically to avoid dazzling other drivers and by following the road, these new headlights help you see more clearly when driving around bends.
Spots the vehicles you might miss
Cross Traffic Alert is part of the Blind Spot Information System. When you’re reversing out of a space and have limited visibility of the traffic situation, Cross Traffic Alert can detect oncoming vehicles and sound a warning. The technology illuminates a light in the wing mirror too (left or right depending on the direction of oncoming traffic).
Maximum cornering control
Torque Vectoring Control reacts to the road surface 100 times per second. (That’s 33 times faster than the blink of an eye.) Using this information, it balances the amount of power delivered to each of the two front wheels. This
maximises grip and sharpens handling, helping you round corners and over undulations in the road.
Comfort & Convenience
A hands-free tailgate for effortless opening and closing
If you’ve got your hands full, and the Edge senses the proximity of your KeyFree key fob, all you have to do is wave your foot under the rear bumper and the tailgate will automatically open or close.
Room to stretch out
Incorporating five generously proportioned seats in two rows, with a 60/40 split rear seat, the cabin provides ample space for every passenger. With numerous
stowage spaces, plus a cavernous boot, there’s plenty of room for passengers, luggage, shopping, pets, activity equipment - or any combination of those, and more.
Performance & Efficiency
Advanced suspension for superb ride and handling
The Edge has a multi-link rear suspension. This advanced system is light, rigid and perfectly tuned, for excellent responsiveness, control
and ride quality.
Use less fuel with Auto Start-Stop
When you stop at traffic lights or your vehicle is idling in a queue, this technology can automatically switch off the engine (while still supplying power to essentials like the headlights, air-conditioning, radio and the Ford SYNC system). When you're ready to move, just depress the clutch and select first gear as usual, or press the accelerator on an automatic, and the system restarts. Auto Start-Stop is particularly effective in town and city streets, where it can cut fuel consumption by up to 10% (urban cycle).
Safety & Security
Extra protection for your rear passengers
The two rear outer seats can be fitted with a unique safety feature: a rear inflatable seat belt. In the event of an impact, the belts inflate and spread the crash forces over a five times larger area of the body than conventional seat belts. By reducing pressure on the chest and better controlling head and neck movement, this innovative technology can help reduce the likelihood of injury.
Keeping your trailer safely in line
Trailer Sway Control detects ‘snaking’ or trailer sway and reduces your vehicle’s speed to help solve the problem, making towing more controlled. The system slows the vehicle down by reducing the engine’s torque and gradually increasing the brake pressure on all wheels.
