The 2019 Ford Edge is a great vehicle for families, having a spacious interior and innovative technologies. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety also recently gave the SUV a 2019 Top Safety Pick award, so you can have peace of mind when driving your loved ones.
The Ford Edge had to perform well in
different tests to earn the prestigious award. Accordingly, the SUV earned a
“Superior” rating for collision prevention, as well as a “Good” rating for the
passenger-side small overlap front test.
Ford Co-Pilot360™ technology helped the
Edge earn these ratings. The Rear View Camera displays the area behind your
vehicle while you reverse out of a parking spot. Traction control keeps you
stable on different road conditions. Plus, BLIS® with Cross-Traffic Alert, the Lane-Keeping System and Hill Start
Assist all come standard.
“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

Last month, Ford announced that the new 2020 Ford Escape would be the best-performing Escape that the Blue Oval has ever produced.
For starters, the 1.5-liter EcoBoost, which will come
standard on S, SE, and SEL models, will produce 180 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of
torque and enable towing of up to 2,000 pounds. For the first time ever, this
EcoBoost engine will feature cylinder deactivation for more efficient driving.
The other gas engine is the 2.0-liter EcoBoost, available on
the Titanium, which will crank out 250 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque. This
engine will also launch the EcoBoost from 0-60 mph in 10-percent less time than
the outgoing 2.0-liter Escape engine and will enable towing up to 3,500 pounds.
The Escape became the world’s first hybrid SUV back in 2005.
For 2020, Ford is offering two alternative-fuel powertrain options; the Ford
Escape will be available as a hybrid or as a plug-in hybrid. No matter which
powertrain the Escape is set up with, Ford estimates that the Escape will
manage at least 400 miles between fill-ups. The standard 2020 Ford Escape
hybrid with front-wheel drive should achieve a best-in-class EPA-estimated
range — more than 550 miles on a single tank.
Many Americans will spend at least part of their Christmas break travelling. If your family has a road trip planned in 2018 through Utah, make it easier by driving a new Ford SUV. When you travel in a Ford SUV, everyone will have the space they need and the technology they want.
The 2018 Ford Expedition is completely redesigned this year. It delivers best-in-class fuel economy, three rows of spacious seating, and plenty of room for all of your luggage. And, with standard USB charge ports within reach in each row, everyone’s devices can stay powered. With the available 4G Wi-Fi hotspot, up to 10 devices can connect at once.
When you don’t need the rugged capabilities of the Expedition, the sleeker 2018 Ford Explorer should be the ideal fit. It still offers seating for up to seven people, excellent fuel efficiency and power, and lots of technology. The available SYNC® 3 system uses intuitive voice technology to make hands-free calling and listening to music easier than ever.
Come test drive both the Ford Explorer and Expedition right here at L&L Motors to see which is the better fit for your family. You will wonder how you ever went on a road trip without them.
