Due to its (unfortunately) rough climate and (fortunately) fast-moving, hard-working populace, the Edmonton area is a region that demands a lot out of you and your vehicle. That’s why it’s common to see so many SUVs out and about on the daily journey, as the pleasing blend of all-wheel drive technology mixed with healthy interior space makes sought-after models like the Ford Edge and Ford Explorer such favourites. These two brothers are flagship representatives of the Ford SUV line, and they both return for the 2019 model year with plenty to boast about.
With great innovation, especially when it comes to safety and security (Ford CoPilot360™ comes standard on the 2019 Edge), the 2019 Ford Edge and Explorer vehicles are two of the top performers on the market. It can be a challenge to decide which one is best for your specific needs, so we want to help you out – join Sherwood Ford today as we take you through each of these industry kings!

For their differences, the 2019 Ford Edge and 2019 Ford Explorer both feature many of the same innovations throughout their cabins. For starters, you’ll be treated to a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot on both models, and SYNC® 3 infotainment allows you to pair up your smartphone for seamless app integration on each. Also, both models have the innovative qualities that make their drivetrains one of a kind – you can expect four-wheel drive capability and Adaptive Cruise Control on the Edge and Explorer, each of which are more than welcome features for the often-challenging conditions out on the roads.
