The Ford Edge is more than an incredible crossover—it’s an exceptional family vehicle. That’s perfectly illustrated with the 2014 SEL, which sports a long list of safety features and top-notch ratings which truly differentiate it from the rest of the pack.
Sure, there are anti-lock brakes and traction control, but the Edge SEL brings the goods in a variety of other ways. Front and rear airbags make the cut, but notably, side-mounted inflatables also keep your loved ones cushioned and secure in the event of a collision or rollover. Also available on this SUV is a backup camera and parking sensors, which alert you to any potential obstacles as you maneuver in and out of Seattle lots and side streets. Additionally, there’s the blind-spot information system (BLIS). This is designed to detect any vehicles approaching from an adjacent lane that may otherwise be unnoticeable. An audible alert sounds if automobiles enter an area extending ten feet from your side mirrors to just beyond your bumper.
The Ford Edge SEL also features an array of five-star NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) test ratings. These superlative scores exist for the “overall,” “driver,” “passenger,” “front seat,” “rear seat,” and “side crash” categories.
