Ford Announces 2019 Ford Edge ST — Sharper Edge

Speaking of that, Ford ensured that no novice would go without looking like a superstar behind the wheel of the Edge ST. Cycle the through the selections and you'll find a Sport mode that can tell traction and stability control systems to chill out and let performance-seekers have their fun. The 2019 Edge ST, which makes its world debut at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show, is the first crossover in the Ford lineup to undergo serious performance tinkering. This, of course, means the Edge ST is powered exclusively by Ford's twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6, which generates 335 horsepower 380 pound-feet of torque. The engine is paired with standard all-wheel drive and a fast shifting 8-speed automatic transmission. There's also an ST-tuned suspension and an available performance brake package.

The 2019 Ford Edge ST is introducing a Sport mode. "From a performance standpoint, and with its SUV silhouette and versatility, it sets a new standard Edge fans will love to drive".

The 2019 Ford Edge ST flaunts a black hexagonal grille with deeper side skirts, unique dual exhaust outlets and rides on the standard 20- or available 21-inch wheels. Ford didn't say if the new Edge ST would come with the same courtesies, but here's hoping we all get a chance to hustle a 2-ton SUV around a track. Using the FordPass app, drivers can also use their smartphone to start, lock, unlock and locate their Edge.

It's only two years since the Ford Edge SUV arrived in the United Kingdom market as a big brother to the Kuga and Ecosport in Ford's SUV range, but it's already getting a bit of a facelift. The features include Forward Collision Warning and Dynamic Brake Support; Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection; BLIS with Cross-Traffic Alert; Lane-Keeping Alert; Lane-Keeping Assist; Auto High Beams; and Hill-Start Assist. A Bang & Olufen 12-speaker audio system is also on the options sheet.

Evasive Steering Assist: Helps drivers steer around stopped or slower vehicles to help avoid collisions.

SYNC with AppLink™, an enhanced voice-recognition communications and entertainment system, is also standard. Even the base 2.0-liter EcoBoost four now offers five more horsepower while returning better fuel economy, thanks in no small part to that eight-speed automatic.

Inside, the facelifted 2019 Edge features a redesigned center console featuring a new rotary gearshift dial. Well, it seems they took the old Edge Sport and added more goodies.

Designers tweaked interior and exterior components on the Edge, giving the vehicle a wider grille and new fascia, but the refresh focuses most on technology.
