The 2015 Ford Edge, which just set a May sales record with sales up 34 percent, was awarded a five-star overall safety rating by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. This is the highest rating the government can give a vehicle, and it is well deserved. An extensive suite of standard and available safety and driver-assist features help make the new Ford Edge one of the safest cars on the road. Buying a 2015 Edge from Randall Reed’s Planet Ford in Humble means you can be sure that you’re getting a great deal on a vehicle that will keep you and your family safe.
The passenger cabin of the Ford Edge surrounds its occupants with features dedicated to keeping them safe. Available second-row inflatable safety belts deploy in certain collisions and distribute force across five times the surface area of a passenger’s torso than a regular seat belt. This substantially reduces the risk of head, neck, and chest injuries in the event of a crash. There is also a standard knee airbag in the front of the glove box, which improves protection for the front-seat passenger. Standard side-impact airbags and the two-row Safety Canopy System increase passenger protection even further.
The available adaptive cruise control detects decreased speed in vehicles ahead of your Ford Edge and adjusts cruising speed accordingly. If the distance is closing too fast, the available collision warning system triggers audio and visual cues and can even preemptively engage the brakes if necessary. An available front-facing camera offers a 180-degree view of what’s ahead of you; this camera feeds into the available Lane-Keeping System to combat drifting out of your lane. Additionally, the available Blind Spot Information System keeps the driver aware of their blind spots by activating an indicator light in the side mirror. This system also alerts the driver to cross-traffic when backing out of a parking space. The Electric Power-Assisted Steering increases responsiveness and control via pull-drift compensation technology, making the car more nimble and maneuverable in an emergency situation.
Drivers in the Houston area who are in the market for a new family vehicle will love the security of knowing their loved ones are protected by a comprehensive system of safety features working together to create one of the safest vehicles on the road today.
