Did you know that when the 2016 Ford Edge reaches dealership showrooms later 2015, Ford Motor will introduce an innovative new technology that will redefine the idea of 'power steering'?

Ford's adaptive steering makes it easier for drivers to maneuver a vehicle at low speeds while making the vehicle more fun to drive and agile at high speeds. Adaptive steering will be standard on Edge Sport and available on Edge Titanium.
Adaptive steering changes the ratio between the driver's actions at the steering wheel - the number of turns - and how much the front wheels turn. In vehicles without the technology, this is a fixed steering ratio. With adaptive steering, the ratio continually changes with vehicle speed, optimizing the steering response in all conditions.
At lower speeds, such as when pulling into a parking space or maneuvering in tight areas, fewer turns of the steering wheel are required. Adaptive steering makes the vehicle more agile and easier to turn as it dials more steering into the road wheel.
At highway speeds, the system optimizes steering response, letting the vehicle react more smoothly to each steering input.
After rolling out on the 2016 Edge, adaptive steering will be available for other Ford and Lincoln vehicles in the future. It is also being introduced in Europe, initially on Ford S-Max and Galaxy.

Did you know that Ford vehicle sales were up 23% in September 2015 over the prior year?  It's Ford's best sales performance in September since 2004!  F-Series truck sales were up 16% and retail sales were up 28%.  Ecoboost engines now make up 64% of the sales mix in the F-Series lineup busting the myth that there is no replacement for engine displacement.
Ford van sales totaled 17,994 units and it was Ford's best van sales month since 1987!  Ford is the number one seller of commercial vans in 47 of 50 states and Ford has a 60% share in the commercial van segment.  When America goes to work chances are good it will be behind the wheel of a Ford.
SUV sales were also up 27% over September 2014.
In car sales Mustang was a big winner with sales up 199% over the prior year marking it's best September since 2007 and Ford Fusion sales were up 15% over last year's pace and car sales in total were up 15% year over year.
