Largest-In-Class 12″ Touchscreen Display
The first time you open the door and look inside the new Ford Edge, you’ll be wowed by the incredible 12-inch touchscreen display, which is the largest in its class this year. The days of squinting and stumbling through features and functions on a tiny hard-to-use infotainment console are thankfully behind us; in the new 2021 Ford Edge, you’ll be able to stream your favorite music, set and follow directions from the navigation system, access important diagnostic information, and much more with ease.
The New FordPass Connect App
You’ll be able to do a lot from the touch screen console, but Ford has gone one step further this year. The all-new Ford pass connect app allows you to perform a whole host of other tasks such as starting and stopping the Edge, locking and unlocking the doors, checking fuel levels, and scheduling regular maintenance. Plus, when you use your FordPass connect app you can also gain points that can be redeemed for free maintenance at participating service locations.
Available Integrated Wi-Fi Hotspot
Technology plays a major role in our lives these days, from the way we work to the way we relax after work; the internet is a vital part of what it means to be alive in the 21st century. With an available integrated Wi-Fi hotspot, the new Ford Edge is ready to tackle the challenges of tomorrow today. Having access to a reliable signal while you’re on the road means you’ll be able to stream your favorite music and media, get directions to the nearest gas station, or contact the right assistance provider whenever you need to.
The Next-Gen SYNC4-A Infotainment System
These days, more and more auto manufacturers or including intuitive integrated info and entertainment systems in their vehicles, which is in no small part due to the role that the SYNC infotainment system played over the past decade. The newest iteration, SYNC4-A, offers drivers a seamless experience and a suite of modern entertainment options; best of all, the system can recognize natural voice commands so that you won’t have to take your hands off the steering wheel to change tunes or send a quick message.
Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go
Sitting in traffic is a bummer; let’s face it, being stuck in gridlock is one of the worst aspects of driving. Thankfully Ford has come up with the best solution today in the all-new adaptive cruise control system installed in the 2021 Ford Edge mid-size SUV.
The system can detect the speed of the vehicle ahead and autonomously adapt to follow them from a safe distance; should they slow down or stop the Ford Edge will do the same, and when they start up again you’ll be back on your way automatically making traffic jams a time to relax and enjoy the ride.
The BLIS Blind Spot Information System
The all-new blind spot information system installed in the 2021 Ford Edge is on another level. The system uses state-of-the-art onboard technology to scan the road around you and can identify when other vehicles have entered your blind spot. This means that you’ll always know when the coast is clear, and you’ll be able to change lanes confidently without having to wonder about if it’s safe to do so.
Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking
Ford is serious about your safety, which is why they’ve equipped the new Ford Edge with the innovative new Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking system. The system uses integrated modern technology, including safety sensors and an advanced camera suite, to identify potential oncoming collisions so that you can take action to avoid a crash before it’s too late.
If you are unable to react in time, the system can automatically apply the brakes in an attempt to avoid the accident, or at the very least, minimize the damage if the collision is unavoidable. No one can ever say that driving is 100% safe, but the new Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking System equipped in select models of the 2021 Ford Edge is definitely a step in the right direction.
