Ford Expands ST Trim to Edge SUV

Sharper Edge: Ford Announces 2019 Ford Edge ST

The Focus ST formally introduced Americans to FoMoCo's high performance program and the Fiesta ST built on the popularity of the Focus, offering go-fast-fans two different options when shopping for a small, high performance vehicle.

Well, that soon will change.

Following Ford's best-ever U.S. SUV sales in 2017, Ford further steps up the game by introducing first performance-enhanced ST to its SUV lineup with the all-new Edge ST.

Coming up as the first Ford crossover to boast some major performance tweaks, the 2019 Ford Edge ST sports a new trim, a new look, and plenty of exciting features.

Much like the Fusion, the Edge will be fitted with a 355-horsepower 2.7-liter twin-turbocharged V-6, all-wheel-drive and an automatic transmission - albeit an eight-speed, as opposed to six - with paddle shifters. This engine delivers 335 horsepower and 380lb-ft of torque (20 more horsepower and 30lb-ft more torque than the Edge Sport) to all four wheels via an 8-speed automatic transmission and an advanced all-wheel-drive system.

US Exploration Firm to Resume Search for Missing MH370
The final report showed authorities were unable to conclude why the plane disappeared or determine its exact location . The payment will be borne by the Malaysian government . "From there, we assessed the right place to search for MH370".

A new "sport mode" allows drivers to experience more aggressive driving while maintaining comfort and control.

No pricing details are available at this point for the new Ford Performance Edge ST model, but a 2018 Ford Edge Sport retails for roughly $40,000. The starting price for the 2019 Ford Edge ST crossover has been set at $40,675. It gets the same pedestrian spoiler that's found on the more basic Edge models, the same gloss black panel on the liftgate, and up front, an upper grille that's no bigger or more aggressive-looking than on those CUVs. A performance brake package is an optional extra. That includes improved performance and fuel economy with even the stock 2.0-liter base engine. The chief engineer of the Ford Edge, Jonathan Crocker, claims that they have destroyed a lot of race tracks with this monster SUV. The FordPass Connect multimedia connectivity system with Wi-Fi will be standard, enabling the connection of up to 10 wireless personal electronic devices, and enabling communication with smartphones via the FordPass app.

The 2019 Ford Edge ST will also feature a whole host of advanced safety technology, and along with the rest of the refreshed lineup it will be appearing in showrooms from the summer of this year.

Significantly, a hot ST version of the Edge was also revealed, but Ford Australia has already confirmed that the local range will be a diesel-powered, five-seat proposition, likely ruling out a launch for the more potent variant.
