Sharper Edge: Ford Announces 2019 Ford Edge ST
Ford recently has focused a lot on winning over enthusiasts, developing a performance lineup full of hot hatches, pony cars, off-road trucks and a race-proven supercar. The 2019 Edge ST, which makes its world debut at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show, is the first crossover in the Ford lineup to undergo serious performance tinkering.
"Edge ST puts a new animal on the road - a performance SUV with a track mentality", Hau Thai-Tang, executive VP of product development and purchasing said. Ford, keen on finding out if the crossover craze and the innate gearhead love of performance have an intersecting point on the vehicular Venn diagram, made a decision to kick things up a notch by offering the new Edge in ST trim.
Performance upgrades like what the Edge ST will offer typically capture male buyers.
Under the hood sits the same 2.7-liter twin-turbo V6 as the Edge Sport, but instead of 315 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque, the Edge ST offers up 335 hp and 380 lb-ft. Unique 21-inch wheels are available and you'll find interior design cues on the steering wheel, seat backs and scuff plates to provide a subtle reminder that this five-passenger SUV is something special.
The fully-fledged ST looks like it will be staying in America.
Ford first expanded production of the Edge in Canada three years ago, announcing then that the vehicle would be exported for the first time to western Europe.

The 2019 Edge ST marks the first Ford SUV to wear the ST badge; a badge reserved for vehicles developed with the assistance of Ford Performance.
All-new Edge ST auto will be fully revealed at the Detroit Motor Show. Edge models will come standard with FordPass Connect, a WiFi hotspot that can connect up to 10 devices.
The other Edge engine choices continue to be a 2.0-liter EcoBoost 4-cylinder (245 hp, 275 lb-ft, up 5 hp and 5 lb-ft from 2017) and naturally aspirated 3.5-liter V6 (280 hp, 250 lb-ft). It also features upgraded braking equipment compared to the standard Edge, a sport-tuned suspension with firmer springs and more damping, and a stability control system with two different levels of "off-ness". Optional is parallel and perpendicular parking assist, and adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go and lane-centering capability.
Ford has still to reveal the pricing for the 2019 Edge ST. "It also has to have a very good balance of vehicle attributes".
Notable tech features include the ability to locate, unlock, start, and lock the vehicle with a mobile app and connect up to 10 devices to in-car WiFi.
