335-hp Ford Edge ST spearheads facelifted 2019 Edge lineup

Sharper Edge: Ford Announces 2019 Ford Edge ST

When the 2018 North American International Auto Show opens in Detroit's Cobo Hall next week, the world will be formally introduced to the newest, biggest and most powerful ST vehicle - the 2019 Ford Edge ST. Jonathan Crocker, the Vehicle Engineering Manager for the 2019 Ford Edge, explains that the first-ever Edge ST isn't a "narrow-use" performance vehicle made for the "weekend warrior", like the STs of the past.

The 2019 Ford Edge ST is the first Ford SUV to get a performance-focused ST model.

For power, the Edge ST gets a 2.7-liter twin-turbo V6 with 335 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque.

The Edge ST also gains an eight-speed automatic transmission with an ST-only sport button on the new, rotary-dial shifter.

Technology for a Connected World Inside, drivers will find an available wireless charging pad nestled in the forward media bin, and they can opt for an upgraded audio experience, HD Radio and a 12-speaker B&O PLAY Premium Audio System by HARMAN specially tuned for Edge. Ford tuned the Edge ST to compensate for its high ride by "managing the all-wheel drive system and electronically creating a little bit of sportiness without getting ourselves into any issues on the center of gravity", Nair said.

The Edge ST offers a Sport Mode that provides heightened throttle response, rev-matched downshifts on braking, sharper engine braking and gear-holding in cornering. An optional performance e-brake package with 345 mm vented rear rotors and red-painted calipers is optional on the ST as well. The standard vehicle comes with a 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine paired with an 8-speed transmission. Other ST features include better handling, braking, suspension and engine performance.

For those unfamiliar with the Ford Edge, it's a 4-door hatchback that can fit five passengers, with sufficient cargo space.

Built at the Oakville Assembly Plant in Oakville, Ontario, the new Ford Edge and all-new Edge ST are scheduled to arrive in showrooms this summer.

Images of the Edge in Titanium guise depict subtle front-end changes over its predecessor, with key differences being a wider front grille that is flanked by new-look LED headlights, foglights and daytime running lights, as well as a redesigned bonnet and bumper.

Ford is announcing a new addition to its SUV lineup today.

In the US Ford has also improved the standard kit list on the Edge, but it's not yet know if that will be reflected on United Kingdom models.

The vehicle has WiFi capability for up to 10 devices.
