The New 2019 Ford Edge ST Is The Sharpest Yet

The New 2019 Ford Edge ST Is The Sharpest Yet”

But the biggest news is the introduction of the Ford Edge ST, the first crossover to be tuned by Ford's high-performance Sport Technologies team.

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. The engine is paired with standard all-wheel drive and a fast shifting 8-speed automatic transmission. It will arrive from the factory with a stiffer suspension tune and be available in four new colors, most notable of which is the Ford Performance blue that you see in the pictures.

The new Edge ST has an "elevated sense of design", with more bold and aggressive stance, said Steve Gilmore, the SUV's design manager.

Ford has officially entered the SUV performance segment with the reveal of the new 2019 Edge ST. A mesh grille, darkened headlights and unique 21-inch wheels highlight the new appearance on the outside.

Updates to the rest of the Edge lineup include restyled front and rear fascias, interior trim details, additions to driver assist features, and extensive upgrades to the vehicle's telematics and infotainment.

Inside, technology shifts up too, with optional wireless charging and a standard Wi-Fi hotspot that gives internet access to up to 10 devices.

Of course, today's buyer requires more than just performance. The updated Edge line will also have post-collision braking, a technology that prevents the vehicle from moving after a collision, reducing the potential for a secondary crash.

The second-generation Ford Edge may look like a hot hatch on stilts, but it has always lacked the necessary muscle to go like one.

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. Selected by depressing the center button of the new console-mounted rotary shifter, Sport mode also preselects gears for sprightly corner exits, enabling the driver to brake hard and dive deep into a corner at speed and exit in a lower gear, keeping engine rpm in the meat of the powerband.

SYNC with AppLink™, an enhanced voice-recognition communications and entertainment system, is also standard.

New driver-assist features include post-collision braking, to reduce the possibility of additional damage following an accident; an available adaptive cruise control system that functions down to a full stop and resumption of speed; and Evasive Steering Assist.
