Multiple driver assistance technologies all working together to enhance your driving experience ensuring the most enjoyable and comfortable drive. Ford Co-Pilot360. For example, Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go will automatically adjust the speed of your cruise control based on the behaviour of the vehicle in front of you. If the vehicle ahead slows, even to a standstill, the system will slow you and eventually automatically stop the engine and restart when the road clears. The system recognises speed signs and will adjust your cruise control accordingly. Another technology working as part of Ford Co-Pilot360 is Lane Centering. Providing steering assistance by following the markings on the road to help ensure you maintain a centralised lane position.
Adaptive Steering delivers responsive steering in all conditions, at all times, including at lower speeds. When manoeuvring in a car park for example, less steering input is required. Whilst at higher speeds on perhaps a dual carriageway, steering is more precise. Then there is of course Sport Mode which reduces the steering input effort required by the driver for bends, making driving on some of the fantastic Devon & Cornwall sweeping and curving roads even more rewarding.
Updated Intelligent All-Wheel Drive can determine how much responsiveness, grip, and cornering balance is required in changeable conditions including icy, wet or dry and on different types of terrain. When four-wheel drive isn't required the technology only runs in front-wheel-drive, and then switches back to all four-wheels if required delivering an improved efficiency, a better driving experience and exceptional handling.
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, sound a warning and even activate braking if you don’t react in time. The technology illuminates a light in the wing mirror too (left or right depending on the direction of oncoming traffic).
Adaptive Lighting with Ford Dynamic LED headlights and daytime running lights deliver a precise and intensely bright light pattern that automatically adjusts to suit different road and driving conditions. In addition, glare-free high beam adjusts itself automatically to avoid dazzling other drivers, and the new system can even read the curve of the road to illuminate corners and crossings before you enter them.
Active Park Assist can steer you into parallel parking spaces just 20% longer than your vehicle. Simply push a button and the sensors of this innovative system locate a suitable space as you drive past. Then it automatically steers you in, while all you do is operate the accelerator, gears and brake, as directed by the on-screen instructions.
The Blind Spot Information System uses RADAR sensors to see vehicles that may be hidden in your blind spot. They’re situated on either side of your Edge and alert you with an orange light, clearly displayed in the side door mirror.
Whatever your taste in music, it deserves to sound as the artist intended. That’s exactly what you can expect in the New Edge. Why? Because it’s available with B&O. This premium level 1,000-watt audio system delivers a rich, powerful sound via a 12-speaker, woofer and subwoofer inclusive set-up. This advanced technology has been specifically designed, developed and fine-tuned for the Edge by B&O´s specialist acousticians. So, turn it up and enjoy your favourite bands and songs in the concert hall that is your car’s cabin.
In the event of an accident, where the airbag is deployed or the fuel-pump deactivated, Ford SYNC with Emergency Assistance can use a Bluetooth-paired and connected mobile phone to help you make a direct call to the Emergency Services. You can choose to stop the call, or talk to those services if you need to. The system is designed to supply vital information, such as your GPS coordinates, even if you are unable to.
