Traveler’s Guide to the 2011 Ford Edge

 

Ford Edge imageThe 2011 Ford Edge is the perfect illustration of classic Americana meets new American innovation, technology and design. Along with the 2011 Fiesta the Edge was one of the first Ford vehicles to showcase Ford’s Kinetic Design. The Edge was however, the very first vehicle to showcase MyFord Touch, Ford’s state-of-the-art infotainment system. The perfect companion for any traveler MyFord Touch aggregates Phone, Navigation, Entertainment and Climate into an easy to use touch screen interface found on the center console. Phone’s equipped with bluetooth functionality will connect straight to the system allowing you, the driver to field calls while keeping your eyes on road and hands on the wheel.

Ford Edge offers both veteran and would be traveler’s the luxury of spacious trunk and cabin room. This vehicle trait becomes especially useful if you’re the type of person who tends to over pack (myself included). If the trunk space isn’t large enough for you, there’s always the ability to fold down the second row of seats.

Lebanon Ford Traveler Tip: If you’re looking to either purchase or rent a 2011 Ford Edge we suggest obtaining one equipped with a panoramic sunroof. This will completely enhance your destinations experience. So whether you’re driving through the streets of a bustling metropolis or down the open road you’ll feel fully immersed in your surroundings.
