With New ST Version Ford Edge Gets Edgier

2019 Ford Edge ST – the first Ford Performance SUV

Assembly plant in Oakville, Ont. to build new Ford SUV, locking in jobs

The Edge is the first Ford SUV to get a performance-focused ST model, which will be part of a refreshed Edge lineup that will be on display at the Detroit auto show next week.

Ford Australia has confirmed that non-ST versions of the SUV will be making their way to Australia, as a long awaited Territory replacement, though the model will be called "Endura" for our market, as Toyota owns local rights to the Edge name. It comes packing a 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine that pushes out 335 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque. This is 20 hp and 30 lb-ft of torque more than the 2017 Edge Sport.

Drivers will have the ability to shift into Sport mode, as well, further tuning vehicle settings, such as throttle response and transmission shifts, to performance levels.

The Edge ST gets unique new front and rear styling, a wide mesh grille for better cooling, deep side skirts and dual-exhaust outlets.

The 2019 Ford Edge is expected to arrive in showrooms this summer.

"It's not just a sporty color or badge", said Jonathan Crocker, the 2019 Edge ST engineering manager. We expect 0 to 60 miles per hour to come in the low-5-second range, and Crocker tells us that the Ford Performance division, which helped develop the vehicle, has stringent braking and handling requirements that must be met in order for something to wear the badge.

The Ford Edge ST's software also plays nice with Amazon's Alexa voice service, allowing users to interact with the digital assistant straight from the vehicle. The engine is paired with an eight-speed automatic. The reveal shows off a lightly face-lifted model with simplified powertrain options and a new high-performance ST version replacing the Sport model. This includes 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.

The Ford Edge, redesigned in 2015 and available with the powerful and much-loved 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 (as the Edge Sport), has been one of those great packages that has gotten less attention than it probably deserves. Given that the engine only makes 5 extra horsepower over its predecessor yet features stop-start technology, expect the majority of improvement to be seen in fuel economy.

Ford's also outfitted the updated SUV with a wireless charging pad and an available 12-speaker B&O Play premium audio system.

SYNC with AppLink™, an enhanced voice-recognition communications and entertainment system, is also standard. An embedded modem will provide WiFi to up to 10 devices and can stay connected to around 50 feet away.
