The 2019 Ford Edge recently underwent safety testing with independent third-party Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), earning the coveted distinction of Top Safety Pick. In fact, the Edge aced all six areas of IIHS crash testing to earn this honor.
“We are really pleased the insurance industry places such a high degree of trust in our 2019 Ford Edge,” said Angela Cascaden, Ford Edge Marketing Manager. “It not only offers a number of innovative safety features for passengers, it backs that all up with a host of driver-assist technologies designed to help improve confidence behind the wheel.”
According to the IIHS, it’s the Edge’s solid body structure and standard front crash prevention features that make it such a worthwhile SUV for safety. The IIHS also lauded the Edge’s available LED projector headlamps with curve-adaptive technology.
The 2019 Ford Edge comes standard with Ford’s comprehensive suite of active safety technologies, called Ford Co-Pilot360™. This suite includes Ford’s Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking. The IIHS specifically lauded this technology, saying it “rates superior for its ability to react to an imminent crash with another vehicle.” Also included in Co-Pilot360 is BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert, the Lane-Keeping System, Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go and Lane Centering, Auto High-Beam Headlamps, and the Rear View Camera.
