New 2019 Ford Edge Reduce Gas Usage
As we've discussed in the past, the current automotive market is just flooded with SUVs. With so many to choose from, we can understand how it can get confusing. The first thing you need to do is ask yourself what you'll be using your SUV for. If you live in a heavy traffic area as we do at Southern California Ford Dealers, fuel economy is critical. When it comes to reducing gas usage and offering outstanding performance, the 2019 Ford Edge really shines.
Less Gas, More Performance
Historically SUVs haven't been known for their gas mileage, but that trend is beginning to reverse itself. The 2019 Ford Edge has improved EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings thanks to a number of critical upgrades. The first, and most innovative is something called all-wheel-drive disconnect. The system uses dozens of sensors and artificial intelligence to determine in a fraction of a second whether all-wheel drive is needed. It can also detect a wide variety of factors instantly including if the windshield wipers are on or if the Ford Edge is towing a trailer. All of this allows the SUV to keep you in the more fuel-efficient two-wheel drive mode as long as possible. When you combine this hi-tech breakthrough with the 2.7-liter V6
EcoBoost engine that produces 335 horsepower and 380 lb.-ft. of torque and the new 8-speed automatic transmission with two overdrive gears, you'll be able to get an impressive EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of 19 mpg city/26 mpg highway/21 mpg combined.* On top of all these great fuel-saving features, there is also standard Auto Start-Stop, exhaust gas recirculation, deceleration fuel shut-off, and a handful of aerodynamic enhancements.
While we've covered the ways that technology on the 2019 Ford Edge allows for fewer trips to the pumps, it turns out it can do a whole lot more. The 2019 Ford Edge will be the first SUV to include Ford Co-Pilot360. This suite of standard driver-assist technologies makes driving the Ford Edge easier, safer, and more enjoyable. You'll have access to standard features such as:
- Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
- Blind Spot Information System with cross-traffic alert
- Lane-Keeping System
- Rear view camera
- Auto high-beam headlamps
If you want to take a step up, you can also add an array of available hi-tech safety and navigation systems including Adaptive Cruise Control With Lane Centering and Evasive Steering Assist.
Style and Luxury
While the 2019 Ford Edge is packed with technology, Southern California Ford Dealers wants you to know that it is also a stylish and luxurious SUV. Available in up to nine dazzling exterior colors, this soon-to-be-available SUV, will also include body-color front fascia and side cladding with chrome inserts, an available wireless charging pad, and a 12-speaker B&O PLAY Premium Audio System by Harmon.
