Ford Expands ST Trim to Edge SUV

Sharper Edge: Ford Announces 2019 Ford Edge ST

Following Ford's best-ever U.S. SUV sales in 2017, Ford further steps up the game by introducing first performance-enhanced ST to its SUV lineup with the all-new Edge ST.

For an edgier Edge, customers can now select the all-new ST version, which is for the first time used on a crossover.

The features for the vehicle have been explained elaborately and for power, the Edge ST has a 2.7-liter twin-turbo V6 with 335 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque. The entire 2019 Edge range comes equipped with a new eight-speed automatic transmission, but the ST trim gets paddle shifters and a Sport mode that alters shift points (as well as engine braking and throttle response).

Besides its track-tested suspension and race-ready seats, the Edge ST's looks take a dark turn, with a honeycomb black gloss grill and matching 21-inch shiny black rims with big red brake calipers peeking through.

The new Edge ST has an "elevated sense of design", with more bold and aggressive stance, said Steve Gilmore, the SUV's design manager. "From a performance standpoint, and with its SUV silhouette and versatility, it sets a new standard Edge fans will love to drive".

Distinguishable from its lesser-powered brethren, you'll spot a wider grille, deeper side skirts and dual exhausts.

Interior of the new Ford Edge.

Inside, technology shifts up too, with optional wireless charging and a standard Wi-Fi hotspot that gives internet access to up to 10 devices. Also, yes, all of that describes a Ford Edge. Statistics show that the vast majority of USA auto buyers usually purchase utility vehicles while others preserve their preference for performance. A 12-speaker B&O Play system from Harman will handle audio.

Prices haven't been released yet, but Ford expects the new Edge to be in United Kingdom dealers in a year, so expect to see it early in 2019. As a result, the Edge ST is easily the sportiest of the packages we have seen for Ford's popular mid-sized SUV, allowing it to stand out from the rest of the massive crowd in that segment. The standard vehicle comes with a 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine paired with an 8-speed transmission.

These add to the existing forward collision warning, autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring, cross-traffic alert, lane-departure warning, lane-keep assist, high-beam assist, hill-start assist and reversing camera.

The 2019 Edge and Edge ST will arrive in dealerships this summer. The Sync app link will also enable in-vehicle Amazon Alexa home connectivity.
