2 minutes, 31 seconds Read

Sometimes driving is something that just gets you to where you’re going, but other times it can be downright fun. The feeling of the wind coursing through your hair, the stereo pumping your favourite tunes, and all the sights passing by your eyes — when you’re driving with friends and family, the journey can be as memorable as the destination itself.

Let’s take a closer look at the Ford Edge ST, a modern crossover SUV that you’ll love driving on the open road this summer.

  • Look at the Specs

The 2019 Edge comes with more pep than you might have expected, but you can decide just how much power you want. You’ll love the turbocharged twin-scroll 2.0L EcoBoost engine, but drivers looking to take things to the next level can opt for the athletic twin-turbo 2.7L EcoBoost Engine, which offers the best V6 horsepower in its class.

Featuring a light compact graphite iron engine block and aluminum heads, this beast can churn out as much as 335 horsepower and 380 lb.-ft of torque. 

Whichever engine you select, you’ll love to hit the road with these fun Fords this summer, as the combination of power and performance will give you a rush on every drive you take.

  • Safe and Smart Technology

Whether you’re navigating city traffic or breezing along the highways, you’ll love the smart and versatile Ford Edge ST crossover, which are loaded with an array of modern smart features that keep you safe and entertained.

The 2019 Edge has more available driver-assist technologies than any other vehicle in its class. The cameras and sensors help make you and everybody else on the road safer. Available Evasive Steering Assist, adaptive cruise control with lane centring, and Pre-Collision Auto Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking help you drive with confidence.

The advanced technology also makes you more aware of your immediate surroundings: available enhanced active park assist feature uses ultrasonic sensors to help guide you when parallel parking. 

Auto Start-Stop Technology comes standard with the SE 2.0L EcoBoost FWD models, and is a handy feature that reduces fuel consumption and vehicle emissions when you drive in the city. The engine automatically shuts off whenever the car comes to a stop, and restarts immediately as soon as your foot leaves the brake pedal.

  • Easy Navigation and Beautiful Sound

Every road trip requires maps and music, things that new tech in the Ford Edge makes easy. Now Ford’s available Sync 3 AppLink is compatible with the much-loved crowd-sourced mapping and navigation app Waze. You’ll get the best routes in real-time, as traffic updates are factored in.

And your road trip playlist will be sonic perfection on the available 12-speaker Bang & Olufsen personal sound studio. 

You’ll love driving a modern crossover SUV with this much spunk and tech to keep you safe and entertained.  Come down to your local family-owned Ford dealership, and get a great deal on a vehicle you’ll love to drive now, and for many summers down the road.
