Five New Tech Features in the 2015 Ford Edge

Glovebox Airbag

Engineers have crammed a knee airbag into the 2015 Edge’s glovebox door. This clever design work improves packaging efficiency by a whopping 75 percent compared to a traditional arrangement and is up to 65 percent lighter.

A plastic bladder is sandwiched between the glovebox door’s outer surface inner structure. When a crash occurs the bladder inflates, providing a cushioned impact surface. Because of its mounting location directly in front of the front passenger’s knees, the airbag can use a drastically smaller inflator, which is key to this design’s significant mass reduction. This feature will also be offered in the 2015 Ford Mustang.

    keep your tech and give me back my money….

    Who doesn’t love tech? Soon cars will pretty much drive themslves anways… so might as well have something to do.

    there’s good tech and bad tech…shouldn’t I have the right to choose rather than the cost just added in. Reliability stats are showing a decline because of some of this techy stuff.

  • Tigre

    Meh. It’s just functionality and users who get upset because they don’t know how to use it right away.

    This new Edge looks like a winner to me!
