While we will definitely get to the great look of the Ford Edge Concept, it's important to jump right into the technology that will be made available because this concept is a self-driving Ford! The Ford Edge Concept will come with a self-parking technology that will allow the driver of the vehicle to remotely park it from outside of the car. After pushing a button (either while inside the vehicle or outside), the Concept will park parallel or perpendicular all on its own.
The Ford Edge Concept will also feature an obstacle avoidance technology that will use cameras and sensors to detect slow moving and stationary objects in the vehicle's way. When it detects something, it will warn the driver. If they do not react, the vehicle will steer itself away from the object safely. Adaptive steering will be made available in this vehicle as well, allowing for easier steering at slow speeds and more.
Because there are so many updates to the interior of the vehicle, here is a bullet point list of only a few of the major changes:
- Leather-wrapped and hand-stitched instrument panel
- 10-inch touch screen center display with MyFord Touch
- Unique gear shifter
- Dynamic center stack with premium mechanical switchgear
- Unique steering wheel
- Floating binnacle top
As for the exterior of the Ford Edge Concept, Ford revealed big wheels, a prominent grille, and a futuristic, attractive design.
