2015 Ford Edge Earns 5 Stars!
Safety-minded families now have one more reason to consider the much-improved 2015 Ford Edge: It’s achieved a batch of top-tier crash-test ratings.
The federal government earlier this year released full New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) results for the 2015 Ford Edge, and they’re far better than those of last year’s model. It now achieves five stars overall, as well as in the frontal crash and side crash categories.
The all-new 2015 Ford Edge has achieved a five-star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in its New Car Assessment program. This is highest possible rating. In addition, the 2015 Ford Edge showcases Ford’s innovation, including driver-assist features such as standard rear-view camera and active glove-box-door-integrated knee airbag.
The Ford Edge, which is on sale now here at Beach Ford, received five stars in the front and side crash tests and four stars in the rollover crash test. The rating applies to front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive versions of the 2015 Ford Edge. In comparison, the 2014 Ford Edge received a four-star overall safety rating from NHTSA. Standard safety equipment on the 2015 Ford Edge includes anti-lock brakes, traction control, stability control, rearview camera and seven airbags, including a driver’s knee airbag. Optional safety equipment includes inflatable rear seatbelts, a blind-spot information system (BLIS) and rear cross-traffic alert.
The 2015 Ford Edge competitor the redesigned 2015 Nissan Murano earned an overall rating of just four stars from NHTSA. Similarly, two-wheel-drive versions of the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee earned four stars overall. The 2015 Ford Edge scored “Good” ratings in the moderate front overlap and side crash tests. In the moderate front overlap test, the forces are similar to those that would result from a frontal offset crash between two vehicles of the same weight, each going just under 40 mph.
If these terrific safety ratings don’t change your mind maybe a test drive will. Call us or come by today to schedule a test drive and feel for yourself!
