Back To School With the Ford Edge

August 23rd, 2019 by

That time of year is right around the corner. Kids (and some adults) are all heading back to school during the first week of September. How will YOU be getting there? Luckily, we’re here to tell you all about the Ford Edge and how it can make your life easier so you don’t even have to think about your transportation to and from school or any extracurricular activities for that matter. 

Compatability

When you think of this word, it’s often associated with dating. We can guarantee you’ll love the Ford Edge, but not on that level of weirdness. By compatibility, we simply mean the Edge will fit into your family’s lifestyle perfectly. How could it not? 

With 5 person seating and 73.4 cubic units/ft. of cargo space, you’re already covered when it comes to precious cargo. The Edge can comfortably fit two car seats in the backseat (compared to the Escape which does not). Think of all the backpacks and sports gear you could fit in the back! Plus, if your hands are constantly full, you can purchase the useful Hands-Free Foot-Activated Liftgate option.  

The Ford Edge is a popular choice among parents with children of all ages and it does a great job protecting them in the event of a collision, thanks to Ford’s extensive (and standard) safety features.

With consumers also slowly transitioning away from cars and into SUVs, the Edge offers something that is still fast and fun, yet safe and reasonably priced. The Edge SE trim level starts at just $35,349 plus tax.

Stand Out Among the Crowd

If you’re seriously considering the Edge for your new family vehicle, we would tell you it’s a great choice. Sure, we’re biased, but with the Edge’s bold design and powerful engine, how could you rule out this tempting option? 

The style begins in the interior of the 2019 Edge. Most notably, you will find the super neat all-new rotary e-Shifter! What the heck is that you ask? It’s a fancy shifter that’s completely new to this SUV. It takes up less room than traditional gearshifts and makes for a nice, convenient drive. Adding this new shifter allows for more space overall – smart storage and a USB port right where you need it. Dead phone battery that won’t last the full day of school? Don’t panic! Charge it on your morning commute and don’t give it a second thought.

The Edge ST model is also powered by a strong 2.7L V6 EcoBoost engine to not only get your crew to school, but to and from soccer practices too. Minivans are officially out of style, sorry to burst your bubble (although some have had a pretty awesome facelift in recent years). 

Did we mention the striking grille that’s painted with stylish, glossy black paint? But seriously, this SUV will get you to wherever you need to be, safely. The Edge ST has a performance-tuned eight-speed automatic transmission and sports all-wheel drive to ensure a reliable, safe ride in all weather conditions. Super handy in Saskatchewan. You never know when winter will arrive. What are your predictions this year?

The Standard Technology To Keep You Safe

Take advantage of all the amazing technology features that Ford has packed into this SUV. Oh, and they all come standard! Who wants to pay extra for the cool stuff? Ford has included so many useful features in the 2019 Edge:

1. Ford Co-Pilot360 

This is a driver-assist feature that alerts you when someone is crossing the street in front of you AKA other small children using the crosswalk, a flock of geese, a clan of robots, etc.

2. Rear View Camera

Helps you not run over Johnny’s new bicycle that he left on the driveaway RIGHT behind the vehicle. 

3. Lane-Keeping System

We obviously recommend keeping your eyes on the road at all times, but this is a super handy feature. It helps make driving just a little easier in heavy, stop-and-go traffic.

Stop By and Say Hi! 

If you’d like more info on the Ford Edge or to take it for a test drive, we highly suggest you bring your family to Capital Ford. We don’t mind accommodating for the entire crew. Besides, it’s best to get the opinions of everyone who will be riding in the new vehicle. 

Good luck with school this year!
