Ford Edge SUV Facelift REVEALED ahead of Detroit debut

Sharper Edge: Ford Announces 2019 Ford Edge ST

Sharper Edge: Ford Announces 2019 Ford Edge ST

Feast your eyes on the new Ford Edge ST, the sharpest version of Dearborn's midsize crossover yet. Ford has yet to release any performance figures, however. All-wheel drive will be standard, and the Edge ST gets the most powerful V6 engine in the class. We've driven the closest thing to the ST, the aforementioned Edge Sport, and we can extrapolate a bit about what we think the ST will be all about. But it should handle with loads more poise and panache. That means it will be putting out a total of 335 horsepower and 380 lb. -ft. of torque, which isn't to be sniffed at.

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.

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 isn't quoting specific performance numbers, but the combo should slightly outperform the Edge Sport, which takes 6.2 seconds to dash up to 60 miles per hour powered by the same 2.7-liter turbo-6 but with 20 fewer hp and 30 fewer lb-ft of torque.

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. That's 20 horsepower and 30 pound-feet of torque extra compared to the 2018 Edge Sport, which should translate into a notably increased output.

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. The Focus and Fiesta, by contrast, come with turbo in-line four-cylinder engines, front-wheel drive and only are offered with six-speed manual transmissions.

The 2019 Ford Edge ST also comes with a sport suspension with revamped springs and dampers, which allow for better cornering tricks.

In terms of looks, the new Edge ST SUV stands out from the other 2019 Ford Edge vehicles by featuring deeper side skirts, a black hexagonal grille, and dual exhaust outlets.

The 2019 model comes standard with forward-collision warning, dynamic-brake support, pre-collision assist, pedestrian detection, blind-spot detection, cross-traffic alert, lane-keeping alert and assist, automatic high beams and hill-start assist. Drivers can also upgrade to SYNC 3 with an 8-inch touchscreen for enhanced in-vehicle experience.
