The 2019 Ford Edge Is an IIHS Top Safety Pick

Top Safety Pick | L&L Motors | Roosevelt, UT

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 driver-assist technologies designed to help improve confidence behind the wheel.”

2019 Ford Ranger Is Most Fuel-Efficient Gas-Powered Midsize Pickup in America

This just in: The all-new 2019 Ford Ranger, the most recent addition to the Ford lineup, has been rated the most fuel-efficient gas-powered midsize pickup in America, beating out competition like the Chevy Colorado, GMC Canyon, and Toyota Tacoma.

So just how efficient is the new Ford Ranger? According to EPA estimates, the Ranger achieves up to 21 miles per gallon in the city, 26 on the highway, and 23 combined. That comes from the 2.3-liter EcoBoost® gas engine on 4×2 models. Even 4×4 Rangers are highly efficient with this engine, at an EPA estimated 20 miles per gallon in the city, 24 on the highway, and 22 combined.

This engine earns more than class-leading fuel economy, however. At 310 lb-ft, the EcoBoost engine also boasts best-in-class torque and it also offers best-in-class towing capacity at 7,500 pounds.

“Midsize truck customers have been asking for a pickup that’s Built Ford Tough,” remarked Todd Eckert, Ford truck group marketing manager. “And Ranger will deliver with durability, capability, and fuel efficiency, while also providing in-city maneuverability and the freedom desired by many midsize pickup truck buyers to go off the grid.”

Ford has already begun production on the new mid-size Ranger at the Michigan Assembly Plant. Test-drive it when it arrives on our lot at L&L Motor. You can also take a whirl in one of our other shiny new 2019 models.
