Thanks to the addition of standard active safety features, the 2019 Ford Edge has earned a Top Safety Pick designation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The active safety features are part of the Ford Co-Pilot360 bundle and offer a second set of eyes on the road to detect any oncoming hazards. To get the Top Safety Pick standing, the 2019 Edge secured a rating of “good” in six areas of the crashworthiness tests.

“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.”

While not all of the Ford Co-Pilot360 features come standard on the 2019 Edge, Pre-Collision Assist and Automatic Emergency Braking do. Pre-Collision Assist uses exterior cameras to track the road ahead and can alert drivers if there are upcoming hazards. If no driver intervention occurs, Automatic Emergency Braking steps in to apply the brakes and keep everyone safe. Other active safety features, like Adaptive Cruise Control and Evasive Steering Assist are available depending on the trim level.
