The 2024 Ford Edge has a lot to offer drivers of all backgrounds as it’s a versatile crossover SUV that’s consistently gained acclaim for its performance, tech, comfort, and head-turning looks. For commuters, it’s a reliable ride with comfortable seats so that you can drive around Sacramento in luxury on your way to and from work. For students, it offers plenty of cargo room and smartly installed cubbies to store luggage for a weekend trip off campus.

However, we think the 2024 Ford Edge is especially great for parents. Parenting can lead to unexpected trips to the doctor, more potential for distraction when driving, and, in general, just a bit more chaos than pre-parenting life. If you have teens learning to drive, you want an SUV that has plenty of safety features available to keep your young driver safe. What you want is a crossover SUV that will have your back during these memorable yet unpredictable years, and that is exactly what you will find with the Ford Edge.

Making Driving Enjoyable Once More

If there’s one thing we know about being a parent, it’s that all of a sudden, regular activities become more stressful when there’s a little one around. That stress doesn’t necessarily go away as they get older, either, especially when it comes to automobiles. When you’re driving the kids around, you want to know that you’re in the safest possible vehicle. While safety is a concern for all drivers, we know it’s most pressing for anyone who has a car seat in the back.

The Ford Edge’s state-of-the-art technology will make traveling around Sacramento enjoyable again. You can cruise through our city’s streets or drive out to the coast and do it with total peace of mind. In the dashboard’s center sits a 12-inch touchscreen display that allows you to utilize Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, navigation, and more. You’ll love how user-friendly this system is and the crystal clear screen the information is presented on. Also available is a 12-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system that will make any drive a fun one.

You won’t have to worry as much about blind spots when you’re driving, either. Ford’s Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) with Cross-Traffic Alert uses the Edge’s cameras to detect when there is another vehicle or an obstacle in one of your blind spots. If you’re changing lanes, for instance, you will be alerted if BLIS catches a car in the direction you’re going, so you know to wait a bit longer before switching lanes. This smart system will make driving safer and thus more relaxing than ever. Your road trips with the kids will be enjoyable instead of stressful, even if you’re on a long trek. The 2024 Ford Edge has one additional safety feature that’s perfect for California drivers. If you head out to the coast regularly, fog can be a concern. But it doesn’t have to be, as you can opt for the Edge’s Auto High-Beam Headlamps.

ActiveX Provides Class and Cleanliness No Matter the Mess

You want your Ford Edge to look classy so that when your friends or extended family go for a drive with you, they’re impressed by your ride and wish they had an Edge of their own. Who among us doesn’t want to be a little envied? To make sure that happens, Ford has ActiveX material available for this crossover SUV. ActiveX closely resembles leather, which makes your Edge’s seats look luxurious.

However, we also know that being a parent means that messes will happen. It’s inevitable when you have little ones around. If your Edge has actual leather, this could be a disaster when a child spills a drink or tracks in a ton of mud. Not so if you have ActiveX, though. Despite looking like leather, it’s far easier to clean as it can handle most cleaning products. This is a benefit to any driver, but it’s especially useful for drivers who are parents. Thanks to this, when you hear there’s a spill, you won’t have to have concerns for your crossover’s long-term well-being. ActiveX is an entirely synthetic material that relies on recycled materials.

You’ll Stay Comfy, No Matter How Long the Trip Is

When kids enter the picture, it usually means you’re driving more frequently. There are doctors’ visits, school drop-offs, extracurricular activities, and family you have to visit because they want to see the little ones. That means you’ll be behind the wheel of your Ford Edge more often, and when that’s the case, you want to know that you’re not going to be achy and miserable after every drive. The Ford Edge can ensure you’re comfortable no matter how often you are behind the wheel or how long the trips you need to take are.

There are many standard and available features that will make your driver’s seat feel almost as comfortable as your recliner back home. We’d bet you may not even want to get out of your car when you reach your destination. Your driver’s seat can be equipped with Driver’s Seat Memory, so you don’t have to constantly readjust your seat to your preferences after someone else has taken your Edge for spin.

Instead, your seat will remember what it is you like, and you’ll be able to sit in the exact position you find works best for your posture. And, if you’re worried that your seat won’t have a ton of available positions, fret not! Your seat may be 10-way power-adjustable (your passengers’ seats can be six-way power-adjustable), which translates to you being able to find the ideal positioning.

As Sacramento’s winter temperatures are not as low as other areas in our country, the advertised heated seats might not be as big of a draw. However, Californians are saved because they can also opt for available cooled front seats. When you’re driving around the kids in the summer, it can be unpleasant if the temps are high and the humidity thick; as the AC kicks in, the cooled front seats can also help make the trip more relaxing more quickly. Say goodbye to hot voyages.
