There appears to be some features, especially with the Sport, that are not mentioned within the product guides, brochures, or manuals, or at least not to my knowledge.
While I read over most of the manual, and I previously owned a 2011 Ford Edge SEL (purchased new), I've only had my current 2016 Edge Sport for 3 days, and each day am noticing some cool feature I happen to stumble upon.
I would be interested if anyone knows of any cool features, other than the vehicle listed options, than I might not be aware of, or something you think is cool!!
My previous Edge was coming up on almost 6 years, had 105,000km and ran flawlessly for the entire time. Always used synthetic oil, and had a CAI from K&N.
Sounded amazing when pushing the throttle, but very quiet within normal city driving. I also saw an increase in fuel economy, keeping it at under 100kph
for at least 75kn of driving, from 7.3L/100km to 6.6L/100km BONUS!!
As for my new Edge Sport, I love all the techy features and safety it has to offer, especially with the 2.7L ecoboost.
So having owned it for just 3 days, here's a couple of things I came across which I found interesting.
1. Had my ambient lighting set to blue, but changes to red on the door that opens (guess a safety feature, but thought it was broken, haha.
2. While receiving a call thru bluetooth, my fan speed on the AC went down, then back up when call ended, so I can hear the person
on the other end, nice!
3. While 'testing' the lane keep assist in the city, and it works amazing, car started to drift over the line but steered me back
into my lane before crossing the line, then a notice flashed in my left screen telling me to keep my hands on the wheel!!
4.Was able to update from Sync1.0 to 2.2 and now have Android Auto! (must have a 32gb drive and formatted as exFAT (IMPORTANT or it won't work)
5. I remotely started from more than 300 feet away while I was in a store (was at Walmart so had to park far), and while inside the building thru the concrete walls! , and that's with the key fob.
If I come across any more, will keep you posted.
If anyone knows of any other cool features that may or may not be listed anywhere, please share, would love to hear them!!
