Shopping for a new car can be an arduous process, but direct comparisons between similarly classed vehicles often provide illuminating details that can help make your decision easier. Such is the case when contrasting the 2016 Edge and the 2016 Journey in the below video:
Arguably the largest differentiator between these two mid-sized SUVs is the dedication to crash safety. Sure, the Dodge performs respectfully, garnering a four-star ranking from the NHTSA. But Ford’s beauty goes the extra mile, earning a perfect five-star overall score.
How does the Detroit auto maker’s creation pull this off? Answer: Robust available features. One of these options is the advanced split-view camera. First introduced in 2015, this device offers an 180-degree view of the Edge’s front. The 1-megapixel wide-angle lens within the grille scouts for traffic and obstacles not only straight on, but also approaching from either side. The real-time video is then fed to the interior cabin’s infotainment screen, alerting drivers to any threats.
Split-view can be deactivated with the press of a button and automatically shuts itself off upon reaching 6.2 miles per hour, ensuring you aren't distracted when traveling at high speeds. By contrast, the Journey falls short with its camera technology.
