living on the Edge

A couple weeks ago, you may recall that I had the opportunity to take the new Ford Edge Titanium for a spin for an entire week.  Obviously, this experience cemented the fact that I desperately need a vehicle upgrade!

From the moment I got into the Edge and inhaled that new car smell, I knew it was meant to be. However, I didn't get far without having to ask the fleet manager how to start the car (insert monkey covering face emoji).  It's been a while since I've driven a new-ish car (mine is a 2006 - reliable and fast, but cannot touch the technology that the Edge offers).  If you think you've seen or heard everything, think again.

My favourite two features of the Edge has to be the keyless entry and the Blind Spot Information System.  There were many times when I was out with both kids and my hands were full, and I kept having visions in my head that I'd be rummaging through my purse trying to find those keys (which always happens to sink to the bottom of my 'black hole' of a purse) with a small voice thinking 'what happens if one of the kids decides to dart out into traffic while I'm looking for those keys'?  We've all been there and we all know what a lifesaver keyless entry is.

Now let's talk Blind Spot Information System.  It uses sensors to detect traffic in a driver's blind spot. The first time I noticed this was when I was driving on the freeway and a yellow warning light would appear on my side-view mirrors every time there was a car approaching my blind spot.  I found this really helpful especially as I was getting used to driving a bigger vehicle.

Finally, I can't rave enough about the trunk space!  With a family of five and a boy in hockey, you can only imagine what we need to transport with us on a daily basis and the Edge allows us to do just that.  Oh, and the interior is pretty roomy too.  Just ask Jadon, haha!

If you're looking for an SUV that's roomy, easy to drive and has all the bells and whistles, the Edge is your ride!
