Ford Edge, the SUV we would like for Malaysia
The stylish, sporty and finely crafted new Ford Edge – the company’s most technologically advanced sports utility vehicle (SUV) ever – delivers greater comfort and enhanced performance for customers in Europe.
The new Ford Edge large SUV offers a comprehensive range of camera- and sensor-based driver assistance technologies designed to make journeys more comfortable and less stressful, and to help drivers avoid or mitigate the effects of collisions, including Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Stop & Go and Lane Centring; Post Collision Braking; and Evasive Steering Assist.
Available in stylish Titanium, Ford Performance-inspired ST-Line and upscale Vignale variants, the new Edge features technology to keep drivers and occupants connected while on the move, including FordPass Connect embedded modem and Ford’s SYNC 3 communications and entertainment system.
Luxurious features available to enhance comfort and convenience include a customisable digital instrument cluster; heated and cooled front seats, heated rear seats and steering wheel; a wireless charging pad for compatible smartphones; and a 1,000-watt, premium B&O Sound System.
A new 238 PS bi-turbo variant of Ford’s 2.0 litre EcoBlue diesel engine delivers the power of a larger capacity engine alongside the optimised fuel-efficiency of a smaller engine, and combines with an intelligent new eight-speed automatic transmission for effortless cruising.
The new Ford Edge also enhances Ford’s Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system with new all-wheel drive disconnect, which can automatically switch seamlessly between two-wheel drive and Intelligent All-Wheel Drive as required, to optimise handling and help further improve fuel-efficiency.
