Revving Up: Ford Drives All-New Edge ST Into Showrooms, Accelerating Its SUV Sales Momentum
12 January, 2018, 13:51
The Edge Sport has been rebadged as the Edge ST for 2019, with the 2.7-litre turbo V6 now making 335 hp in US spec (up 20 hp) and 515 Nm of torque.
Delivering the power is a new quick-shifting 8-speed automatic that's connected to a full-time all-wheel drive system.
"Edge ST puts a new animal on the road - a performance SUV with a track mentality", says Hau Thai-Tang, executive vice president-Product Development and Purchasing.
Ford has officially entered the SUV performance segment with the reveal of the new 2019 Edge ST.
Visually, the Edge ST gets unique front and rear styling, with more aggressive grille and bumper treatments front and rear, unique dual exhaust outlets, a unique 21-inch wheel options, along with ST-branded badging inside and out.
While the most notable features of the 2019 Ford Edge ST make it one of the best-performing mid-sized SUVs sold in America, the design team paid the same attention to the interior and exterior as they did with the Focus and Fiesta ST packages.
All wheel-drive is standard on the ST and gets help from a water-cooled transfer unit in order to help horsepower and all 380 lb-ft of torque find the grippiest tire. A 12-speaker B&O Play system from Harman will handle audio. There's now autonomous emergency braking, evasive steering assist, and adaptive cruise control with stop and go functioning on offer.
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.
"We know we have an opportunity to attract a performance-oriented buyer who needs a little more utility" than they might get through current ST models like the Focus, explained Christine Aquino, the crossover's marketing manager. A wireless charging pad, a Wi-Fi hotspot capable of connecting up to 10 devices at once, as well as the latest version of Ford SYNC, now compatible with Ford+Alexa, will make their way in the crossover. By contrast, the Ford Edge ST seems a bit half-hearted and restrained. (373 Nm) of torque, mated to the 8-speed automatic with stop/start. That's right, a hot SUV with a sprinkling of Ford Performance magic is coming.
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.
Of all the adjective and verb-laden names in Ford's SUV lineup, Edge stands as the lifestyle player, dedicated to those who can spend their time and money on themselves rather than on raising a family. The 2019 Ford Edge will be built in Oakville, Ontario and should hit showrooms this summer.
