Is driving a chore or a pleasure? For most motorists, it’s probably the former–hopping into a vehicle is merely a means to an end, a way to get from Point A to Point B. When you consider that the average American drives up to 30.6 miles daily, that shouldn’t have to be the case. Don’t people deserve a vehicle that’s pleasurable to drive? One that actually makes their lives easier? This is the question that the 2016 Ford Edge seeks to answer. The latest iteration of this well-regarded vehicle offers many little touches that make each drive more convenient, so you actually enjoy being on the wheel.
Ford says that adaptive steering will be the future of steering technology. In a nutshell, this feature calibrates and adjusts the amount of turning a motorist needs to exert in relation to the speed of his vehicle. For instance, low-speed scenarios, such as pulling into a parking lot, will require less effort to steer on your part.
In theory, every harried mom deserves to have an assistant or companion during grocery runs. In reality, though, most of them have to brave this task by themselves. That’s why Ford decided to add the available hands-free liftgate feature in the 2016 Ford Edge. Simply performing a quick kicking motion under the rear bumper and the liftgate automatically opens.
Enhanced Active Park Assist
Parallel parking remains one of the biggest challenges for any driver. Thankfully, the 2016 Ford Edge comes with Enhanced Active Park Assist, a technology supported by ultrasonic sensors that measure the distance from adjacent vehicles, and uses this data to offer assistance to the driver.
