Ford’s a strict adherer to the “safety first” maxim. They consistently endeavor to manufacture cars and trucks that bring the latest passenger security technologies to the table. This trend is continued with the superlative 2013 Edge SEL.
This mid-size crossover comes with tremendous safety features, and chief among them is AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control. It uses sensors to measure road and car conditions in real-time, including aspects such as the terrain, weather conditions, your car’s velocity, and more. The system then selectively brakes your tires as necessary to correct for any missteps and prevent skidding/slipping. In fact, these alterations are made thanks to information that’s received as much as 150 times a second.
The 2013 Edge SEL also comes with MyKey technology. It supports the programming of restrictive driving modes. For example, imagine you’re letting a new driver take the wheel in your absence. You can program in a top speed limiter, radio volume restriction, earlier-than-normal fuel alert warning, a seatbelt reminder, and more. Pretty neat, huh?
Happy New Year, Ford fans! If you’re hoping to start 2019 off right, putting something shiny and new in your garage may be just the ticket. And when it comes to the crossover segment, few vehicles shine brighter than the 2015 Escape Titanium. It’s fast, powerful, and filled with amazing amenities!

The 2015 Escape Titanium will dazzle you with its interior refinements, too. Dual-zone climate control ensures both the driver and front passenger can set separate temperature settings for each side of the car. Heated leather seats are comforting in the fall and winter, while the Wi-Fi hotspot means you can stay connected even if you’re out of range of cell phone towers. It’s a big-time convenience!
