Ford Edge Night Out

Posted by: Jennifer Morand

Ford’s Edge Unstoppable tour recently paid a visit to Chicago for an #EdgeNightOut. The event featured some quality seat time behind the wheel of a 2016 Ford Edge and a taste of fine Chicago cuisine – all in the name of getting consumers acquainted with the Edge’s new driver assist technologies in a bustling urban environment.

The second generation Edge has been completely redesigned for 2016. Ford describes this generation as more athletic – in both styling and performance. The interior received a significant refresh that feels luxurious and upscale. Occupants are treated to plush leather and heated front seats along with a heated steering wheel. The vehicle also comes with a vast panoramic sunroof.


The Edge features a new adaptive steering system that is responsive and precise – almost effortlessly navigating crowded city streets and tight turns. The system adjusts to faster speeds, such as highway driving, and optimizes steering response that allows the vehicle to react more smoothly to each steering input. Ford says the new steering system makes the 2016 model more maneuverable and more fun to drive.

The Edge also offers new electronic safety and convenience features including perpendicular parking assist. A rear-view camera comes standard and there is an optional 180-degree front camera, lane-departure and blind-spot warning systems.


Immediately following the test drive, Ford treated participants to a three-course meal at a trendy, new Chicago eatery, The Windsor.


Prices start around $29,000 for a base front-drive SE and will surpass $40,000 for a lavishly-equipped AWD Titanium. The vehicle is now available at local dealerships.

Thanks to Ford for a great #EdgeNightOut!
