Ford Edge ST revealed as proper performance variant

Ford will fit the brakes on its redesigned 2019 Edge midsize crossover vehicle and its new 2019 Ranger midsize pickup

For example, the Blue Oval has made a decision to showcase there - in front of the worldwide audience of the North American International Auto Show - the updated Ford Edge midsize SUV, complete with the all-new introduction of the ST version.

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 company will unveil the model and improvements to its entire Edge line at the at the 2018 North American International Auto Show next week.

It is mated to a newly designed 8-speed transmission with Auto Start-Stop technology that efficiently turns the engine off when the vehicle is stopped and idling, then seamlessly restarts in milliseconds when the brake is released. 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.

Revealed ahead of a public debut at this month's Detroit Motor Show, the titivated Edge isn't actually expected to arrive in the United Kingdom and Europe until 2019, but the reveal gives us a pretty clear idea of what Ford will be offering in the UK's Edge facelift then.

While the Edge ST may not be offered to United Kingdom buyers, standard models in the United Kingdom will benefit from the raft of visual changes such as the reshaped headlamps and grille brought in by the facelifted model.

Optional technology includes evasive steering assistance and full-range adaptive cruise control with lane-centering assistance. "That's a really important demographic for us to continue to reach".

What we do know is that the spec of the vehicle is unique to the ST. "This vehicle is going to deliver in spades in both of those aspects", Aquino said.

The ST appearance is meshing with a refreshed 2019 Edge look. The grille is taller, wider, and deeper than that on the outgoing crossover, although it doesn't look disproportionately huge thanks to the fact that there's now some separation between it and the headlamps.

The move toward ST could signal a sea change for Ford Performance. "And you have to live with it every day", said Jonathan Crocker, Edge vehicle engineering manager. The body color is also extended further down on the front and sides of the vehicle.
