Detroit Auto Show: Ford enters performance SUV segment with Edge ST

Detroit Auto Show: Ford enters performance SUV segment with Edge ST”

The 2019 Edge represents a paradigm shift for Ford because for the first time ever, there's an ST model available to tackle the track after dropping the kiddos off at school-proving that yes, even the most outlandish wants and needs of the consumer have fully migrated to the SUV platform.

Ford is going to fit the new brakes in its 2019 redesigned Edge midsize crossover and its 2019 new Ranger midsize pickup.

Under the hood of the Edge ST will be the same 2.7-litre EcoBoost V-6 that's already in the Edge Sport, but in the ST it will be tuned to develop 20 horsepower and 30 lb. -ft. more torque that it does in the Edge Sport.

Delivering the power is a new quick-shifting 8-speed automatic that's connected to a full-time all-wheel drive system. Ford also included a Sport mode, which is created to deliver optimal transmission and engine performance.

Ford says the Edge ST will pack specific brakes and suspension tuning to mate with the beefier powertrain. Among its new features, stability and traction control programming with relaxed modes allowing for more slip angle before intervention are some noticeable ones.

"Edge drivers expect a sophisticated, modern driving experience", said Cristina Aquino, Edge marketing manager. That trans has paddle shifters. Ford takes advantage of this trend to present its new 2019 Edge a few days before Detroit. Part of those special touches are ST badges and Ford Performance sill plates. Today, January 11, Ford introduces the ST edition of the sports utility vehicle Ford Edge.

The rest of the Ford Edge line-up also is updated for 2019, however. There's also a unique aero kit including rear spoiler, a diffuser encompassing dual exhausts, and a wide mesh grille for improved cooling. The seats get extra bolstering and an ST badge, which also appears on the steering wheel. A wireless charging pad, a Wi-Fi hotspot capable of connecting up to 10 devices at once, as well as the latest version of Ford SYNC, now compatible with Ford+Alexa, will make their way in the crossover.

The Edge will be just the first in a series of hot rod SUVs Ford has coming, Nair said.

Ford adds a suite of driver-assistance technology to all '19 Edge models including forward collision braking and post-collision braking, pedestrian detection, lane-keeping alert and assist and blindspot and cross-traffic alert. "It also has to have a very good balance of vehicle attributes".
