The 2014 pre-owned Ford Edge SEL is more than a stylish machine—it’s quite the family vehicle, and not purely because of its passenger capacity. This car comes with a menagerie of safety features that make it a favorite of the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration).
As you’d expect, this machine comes with traction control and anti-lock brakes—but there’s far more going on than just that. Side-mounted airbags join front/rear inflatable to keep passengers cushioned in the event of a crash. Parking sensors and a rearview mirror combine to keep you aware of everything going on behind your machine. Also, there’s the blind-spot information system (BLIS). This technology detects any automobiles approaching from an adjacent lane that you might other wise. It will alert you if one comes within ten feet of your bumper or either side.
Due to all these high-tech safety, the NHTSA smiles favorably on the 2014 Edge SEL. It has awarded the machine their highest score—five stars—in the following categories: “overall,” “driver,” “passenger,” “front seat,” “rear seat,” and “side crash.”
