Lane-Keeping System

The available Lane-Keeping System10 includes both the lane-keeping alert and the lane-keeping aid.* The system can operate during the day or night. Lane-keeping alert warns you through a series of steering wheel vibrations, which mimic driving over a rumble strip, should the system detect an unintentional lane departure. Lane-keeping aid actively applies steering torque, which alerts you to direct your vehicle back into the target lane should the system detect an unintended lane departure.

2018 Edge with available enhanced active park assist

Enhanced Active Park Assist

Ultrasonic sensors measure the distance from other vehicles, and once an appropriate spot is identified, you’re signaled to stop and accept the system’s assistance. While you’re driving slowly near parking spots, activate this feature and Edge will scan for available ones. With a few actions on your part – shifting, accelerating and braking – the vehicle can smoothly parallel park or back into a perpendicular parking space.10
