Boone Orienteers: Get to Know Your Next Co-Pilot, the New 2018 Ford Edge

Adventure calls. Whether you're just headed down highway 30 or blazing a trail out into the central Iowa unknown beyond, a new Ford Edge can answer it. In fact, more road-trip lovers and traveling families than ever are already switching to our automaker's mid-size SUV. Why?

For one, 2018 Edge is a true terrain commander. That's thanks not only to available AWD, otherwise standard in the high-octane Edge Sport, but also to a choice of three efficient, powerful engines. The 245-horsepower, 2.0-liter EcoBoost standard in Edge SE, SEL, and Titanium offers twin-scroll turbocharging for a spirited driving feel as well as Auto Start-Stop Technology to improve fuel economy. Step up to an available 280-horsepower, 3.5-liter Ti-VCT V6, optional in SEL and Titanium trims, for some extra pep in your step. Finally, standard in Sport, there's a 315-horsepower, 2.7-liter powerhouse, taking you to the height of performance.

Moreover, it's a comfortable traveler. Available with heating both front and rear and cooled for you and your front passenger, your choice of cloth, perforated leather, or leather seating accommodations puts you in the lap of luxury for the trip. Factor in available ambient lighting to set the mood and optional dual-zone automatic temperature control to create the right interior climate, and an everyday crossover ride can become a pleasure cruise.

Thirdly, it's expertly technologically equipped. The option of a 4.2-inch SYNC infotainment system or an 8-inch SYNC 3 touchscreen puts command of your entertainment, device connectivity, and available voice-activated navigation capabilities within reach for any outing. In select trims, you can even find Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support as well as AppLink, ready to extend access to your smartphone's features to the dash display. Optional nine- and 12-speaker Sony audio systems, an available built-in HD Radio, and SiriusXM support put the finishing touches on transforming your road mix into the drive's soundtrack.

Best of all, the new Edge is exceptionally safe. It incorporates an AdvanceTrac system, featuring roll stability and curve controls, as well as driver-assistance tech galore. So not only can you maintain even footing through foul weather and across uneven terrain. You can also remain in-lane, at a safe distance from others on the road, aware of your surroundings, and clear of an accident, all with intelligent feedback. When it's time to roll into your venue, available enhanced active park assist simplifies slipping into place.

Of course, these aren't all a new 2018 Ford Edge brings to the proverbial table. New for the latest model year, several packages are available to customize your ride, from an SEL Sport Appearance Package to a Safe and Smart Package for Edge SEL, Titanium and Sport, and everything in between.
