Ford Expands ST Trim to Edge SUV

Sharper Edge: Ford Announces 2019 Ford Edge ST

The 2019 Ford Edge ST is the first Ford SUV to get a performance-focused ST model. Yes, the mid-size SUV is getting Ford's full performance treatment, the first Ford SUV to go on the ST meal plan. Like the Sport, the Edge ST will also be standard all-wheel drive, but like the rest of the refreshed lineup the ST will come with a new eight-speed automatic transmission. Ford also provided a manual shifting option using the steering wheel-mounted SelectShift paddle shifters.

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.

Over the past few years, Ford Motor Company has taken the lead in the world of performance sport compacts with their ST line.

The 2019 Ford Edge is expected to arrive in showrooms this summer. The standard vehicle comes with a 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine paired with an 8-speed transmission.

The auto also has an embedded modem and Wi-Fi, able to fire up a hot spot with a 50-foot range, allowing up to 10 devices to connect to it.

Sharper Edge: Ford Announces 2019 Ford Edge ST

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. Ford has sold 2 million Edges globally and 1.3 million in North America.

Ford says the auto will feature a new Sport mode with sharper throttle response and shifting behaviour, so it'll be more likely to sit by the redline.

Edge sales have improved steadily in the competitive and rapidly growing Middle CUV segment in the USA, hitting 142,603 units previous year when it was Ford's fastest-growing SUV brand at 6.0%, according to WardsAuto data.

Further performance tweaks have been made in the shape of ST-tuned suspension and the inclusion of a new sport mode, which sharpens the throttle response, gearbox and delivers greater engine braking. Four new body colors and an equal number of new wheel choices ensure that customers can differentiate their Edges from the rest easily, all the while standard LED headlamps as well as LED taillights and optional LED fog lights add a touch of newness and ensure that there's no confusing this with a vehicle from yesteryear at night.

Inside, a redesigned center console is accentuated by an all-new rotary gearshift dial that frees up space, allows easier access to the wireless charging pad and enhances the vehicle's modern, sophisticated feel.
