Car Features You’ve Heard Of, But Have No Idea What They Do…
New cars keep getting more and more advanced with every model year. Power options used to be unheard of years ago, but now these features that were only available on high end cars in the 60s are now features on base model compact cars! So we all have become accustom to hearing these features now, but what about things like SYNC, and Cross Traffic Alert? What about Adaptive Steering? How about Torque Vectoring Control? Have we lost you yet? Ok… let’s explain what all this new Ford tech is.
Ford has yet to disappoint with any of their new 2015 model announcements this year and the 2015 Ford Edge keeps that trend going. Unlike the last Edge refresh, the 2015 model has been completely redesigned with an all new more aggressive body style (think SUV version of a fastback), and a new emphasis on the latest technology Ford has to offer. In Forbes write up of the new besting selling CUV in its class they write “Cars like the 2015 Ford Edge will make it harder for some to justify shelling out big bucks on luxury vehicles.” They couldn’t be closer to the mark.
Ford has introduced an array of safety technology in the past few years including hands free SYNC, blind spot monitoring (B.L.I.S.), Rear View Camera, Collision Warning, and Lane-Keeping technology. One feature on the forefront of this charge is Ford’s Rear Inflatable Seat Belts, currently being offered in the Fusion, Explorer, and Flex.
