Buying a car with a first-time driver can be a bittersweet experience. At Desjardins Ford Ste-Foy, our team works hard to make sure everyone involved feels confident and comfortable. Many first-time drivers are looking for the same characteristics in their first vehicle: a snazzy-looking car with room for all kinds of gear, the latest and greatest in technologies, and safety features that inspire confidence, all wrapped in a budget-friendly price.
If this sounds like what you’re looking for, you can’t beat the Ford Edge.
Appearance & Capability
With five models to choose from, the Edge provides the versatility you’re looking for in an SUV. With lots of colors, seating, and trim options available, you can design your Edge to match your style.
Eye-catching design with features like 20-inch premium gloss painted aluminum wheels, LED signature lighting with a dark bezel, and modern trim options entice drivers looking to make a statement. Sophisticated interiors and plenty of cargo room appeal to drivers as they transition into college and the job market.
No matter your age, you’ll appreciate the attention to detail inside the cabin. The instrument panel’s sleek look, center stack, door trim, and rotary gear shift dial feel hip and modern without trying too hard.
Designed for people on the go, the Edge boasts a 2.7L V6 EcoBoost engine that provides 335 horsepower and 280lb.-ft. of torque. You’ll always be first off the light with that kind of power!
No matter how far you roam, you’ve got to stay connected.
SYNC 3 with Ford + Alexa brings all the capability of home - on the road. Using the Ford+Alexa app, you have access to voice-controlled navigation and current traffic information. You can add to your Amazon Prime shopping list and even control your at-home devices like temperature and lighting - all from the comfort of your Edge.
Every adventure deserves a soundtrack! With the available B&O Sound System by Bang & Olufsen, you’ll listen to your favorite playlist in surround sound and never, ever miss a beat.
The FordPass app is just one more way Ford keeps you connected. From your smartphone, you can lock/unlock your vehicle remotely, find parking ahead of time, start your vehicle remotely, call for roadside assistance, and even get vehicle status updates delivered directly to your phone.
Your safety has always been our top priority. With advances in technology and safety innovations, we are proud to bring driver-assist Ford Co-Pilot360 technologies to all our makes and models.
Inspiring confidence among drivers, these technologies help you see things you may otherwise not notice. Although nothing is as safe as your undivided and undistracted attention, it is a comfort to know that systems are in place to navigate your journey safely.
Be sure to ask one of our sales team members which of these features are available on the model in which you’re most interested. Some of the safety features include:
Blind Spot Information System. When a vehicle enters your blind spot, we notify you with a small light on the corresponding side-view mirror. You’ll always know when it’s safe to make a lane change without having to turn and swivel and take your eyes off the road ahead.
Lane Keeping System. If our system detects that you’re veering from your detected lane without using a turn signal, it alerts you to refocus on the road ahead. If you continue to deviate from your detected lane over time, the system will remind you that a coffee break might be helpful.
Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking. If you’re moving too fast for the traffic ahead, the system will alert you to slow down. If you don’t take corrective action quickly enough, our Automatic Emergency Braking will activate to bring your vehicle to a safe navigational speed.
These are only a sampling of the safety features Ford has put in place to help keep you safe. Ask one of our sales team members to show you all the innovative safety features that are standard and available to you.
Our team at Desjardins Ford Ste-Foy has served our friends and neighbors in the Ste-Foy area long enough to know what you’re looking for in a top-quality vehicle and from our dealership.
