The 2013 Ford Edge Sport—what a looker, right? Sleek and edgy with an aura of sophistication, too. But the beauty of this vehicle is more than skin deep. Instead, the Big Blue Oval’s design and engineering teams have concocted a crossover that excels in the realm of safety.
We all know that ABS (anti-lock braking) and front and rear curtain airbags are the kinds of inclusions that are deemed standard in today’s industry. But the Edge Sport goes much further to ensure the security of your passengers. There are also daytime running lights and a rollover sensor, the latter of which detects the likelihood of an accident and actually deploys the aforementioned side inflatables prior to the car flipping. Smart!
And then there’s the collision warning system. Like the rollover feature, this works in advance of trouble. It monitors the activity of the car traveling directly in front of your Edge and senses potential danger even before you can. If you get too close to that automobile—or vice versa—Ford’s machine gives off both a visual and audible alert to ensure you have time to take appropriate countermeasures.
