What you should know about the 2019 Ford Edge

 

With a history of over 100 years in the world of cars and engines, Ford Motor Company is the third largest car manufacturing company in the world, and some of its subsidiaries include Lincoln, Jaguar, Land Rover, Volvo, and even 30% of the Mazda.

The company is known for delivering qualitative automobiles for the entire family at affordable prices but also works well in the premium and luxury segments with its most breathtaking models of Lincoln, Jaguar or Volvo.

When it comes to mid SUVs and daily cars, Ford is about to release its 2019 Edge model which already has been acclaimed by the specialists. Here is everything you need to know about the new Ford Edge.

 

General details

Ford Edge has been around ever since 2017 and scored quite decent in sales. The 2019 version comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission to make driving as easy as possible. It reaches up to 130 mph and it is mainly marketed as a utility vehicle.

Ford claims the product’s purpose is to meet the needs of modern families with children where comfort and safety come first. The mid-SUV is larger than a sedan but significantly smaller than other American SUVs, meaning you’ll easily find a parking space and will perform well in traffic. The 2.0 liters displacement and the 250 horsepower at rpm will complete this good-looking car.

We like that the new Ford Edge is a midsize car that can be easily handled by people of all ages, heights, and weights. In addition, Ford is marketing it as an affordable product, so you won’t have to spend all your savings for a new family car.

 

Exterior

The exterior hasn’t been modified too much in comparison with the previous models, but it still brings a bunch of new useful features. The new 2019 Ford Edge comes with some redesigned rear LED tail lights, as well as four different color options to choose the one that best matches your personality.

The four new wheel options and the additional LED fog and accent lighting will make driving easy and safe in all weather conditions.

 

Interior

When it comes to the interior, Ford has paid a lot of attention to details and has made some important changes for the comfort and safety of its passengers. The 2019 model of Ford Edge now features an updated center console, as well as a wireless phone charger for your smartphone.

What we also like is the partnership with Amazon’s Alexa app that combines perfectly with Ford’s own app to provide 24/7 assistance to all drivers, no matter where they go. The FordPass feature allows you to easily access your car through your smartphone without requiring a key.

 

What ATV equipment do you need?

 

ATVs represent rather fast vehicles that can help you easily move from point A to B without getting stuck in traffic. ATVs are used for leisure purposes mainly as they are easy to ride and offer you extreme flexibility when it comes to choosing your routes and destinations.

They are mainly used in outdoor leisure activities such as hunting, road trips, and in order to easily get to off-road destinations such as beaches, forests or mountains.

But, no matter your destination, you must always be prepared, and this means wearing and having the right type of gear and accessories. Here is my list of the best ATV equipment you should have.

 

Light the night

One of the most required ATV accessory is definitely the ATV LED light bar as it has the ability to guide you through the night and provide maximum visibility no matter your destination.

It is extremely important to have a clear and open road ahead, and you can achieve that by simply installing a LED light bar on your ATV for maximum visibility during the night. This will help you stay out of trouble, stay on the main road, avoid accidents, and even guide your path easier if you ever get lost. Not to mention, in case of emergency, the powerful LED light will be easier to spot by the rescuing teams.

 

Keep your head safe

An ATV helmet is essential no matter the road and the time of the day you choose to test your fast vehicle. It comes without saying that you should never ride without using a protective helmet if you want to avoid accidents and injuries that might occur, especially on off-roads.

A good ATV helmet doesn’t only protect your head from accidents but will also shield your vision from direct sunlight, wind, and rain that might interfere with your driving skills. It will also keep your head covered and away from the previously mentioned harsh weather conditions. Roughly putting it, helmets save lives, so you should never even consider getting on your ATV without protective gear.

 

Keep your body safe

Similar to protective helmets, protective gear such as boots, gloves, long pants, and sleeves are specially made to keep your body safe while riding, especially if you decide to use your ATV off-road or for winter sports. Choose boots that cover your ankles to keep your feet dry and safe, and make sure to always wear long sleeves even when it’s warm outside.

Gloves are also extremely important, especially during winter if you want to keep your hands protected from sweat, cold, and rain.

Summer can be deceiving so if you opt for wearing t-shirts and shorts, at least make sure your hands, feet, and head are protected with the right ATV gears.
