Ford debuts new Edge ST ahead of Detroit auto show

Ford debuts new Edge ST ahead of Detroit auto show

While the Edge ST may not be offered to United Kingdom buyers, standard models in the United Kingdom will benefit from the raft of visual changes such as the reshaped headlamps and grille brought in by the facelifted model. We expect 0 to 60 miles per hour to come in the low-5-second range, and Crocker tells us that the Ford Performance division, which helped develop the vehicle, has stringent braking and handling requirements that must be met in order for something to wear the badge.

"A new Sport Mode allows Edge ST drivers to experience more aggressive throttle response and shifting patterns that hold gears near redline through cornering maneuvers, sharper engine braking, and a more resonant exhaust tone", Ford said in a statement. But it should handle with loads more poise and panache.

It's the most powerful engine that Ford's ever fitted in this model - edging out, so to speak, the larger 3.5-liter atmospheric V6 with its 280 hp and 315 lb-ft.

Ford Australia has confirmed that non-ST versions of the SUV will be making their way to Australia, as a long awaited Territory replacement, though the model will be called "Endura" for our market, as Toyota owns local rights to the Edge name.

The Ford Edge SUV has been given a bit of a facelift for and has been revealed ahead of its debut in the United States at the Detroit Motor Show.

The Ford Edge is selling well, and Ford understands what makes it such a hit. It's like the existing Edge Sport, only more so.

Ford Motor Co. announced on Thursday that it would make the automatic emergency brakes a standard feature on two of its key models for 2019. The engine will be mated to an eight-speed auto transmission.

Under the hood of the Edge ST will be the same 2.7-litre EcoBoost V-6 that's already in the Edge Sport, but in the ST it will be tuned to develop 20 horsepower and 30 lb. -ft. more torque that it does in the Edge Sport. And while there's no stick available, the paddle shifters will give you manual control over the changes. As you can probably tell, the Edge ST also stands out from the crowd thanks to an aggressive body kit, 21-inch wheels, and dual exhaust.

Of course, those cars all fall short of the eminent "ST" designation on performance, which the 2019 Ford Edge ST has very little risk of doing. The ST has an available performance brake package and tuned suspension.

Nevertheless, compared to the previous Edge, the new model has expanded its suite of driver-assist and safety technologies to include post-collision braking, evasive-steering assist, and adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go and lane-centring functions. The current Edge Sport pricing starts at $41,670, hinting the ST version to be priced somewhere near. There are also additional standard perks - forward collision warning, pre-collision assist, blind-spot monitoring, lane-keep assist, and automatic high beams.
