Ford Expands ST Trim to Edge SUV

Sharper Edge: Ford Announces 2019 Ford Edge ST

Non-ST Edge models are also gaining an updated version of Ford's 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder with 5 additional horsepower and start-stop technology.

The Ford Edge is getting a sharp one. The vehicles are made at the Oakville Assembly Plant in Oakville, Ontario.

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. The move to a new electronically controlled eight-speed automatic transmission sees a new rotary shifter installed in the console, just like in the larger Explorer. Both the new Ford Edge and all-new Edge ST are set to hit showrooms this summer.

Engaging Sport Mode gives the Edge ST a more aggressive throttle response and changes the transmission's shift patterns so that it will hold gears near redline around corners.

The brakes are part of a suite of standard safety features on the new Edge, Ford said, including technology that detects objects and pedestrians and can prevent collisions by automatically braking and steering for the driver.

"Edge drivers expect a sophisticated, modern driving experience", Cristina Aquino, Edge marketing manager said in the release. "That's a really important demographic for us to continue to reach". He would not say when Ford was planning to makes the automatic emergency brakes a standard features on all its models that are built for the U.S.

Where the Edge ST has it exactly right is turning up the wick even further and giving it some extra equipment, although at what cost we don't quite know. Ford Australia has said the Endura range will go on sale with only diesel engines under their bonnets when the vehicle launches later this year.

The addition of the ST badge brings bigger wheels-21-inchers vs. 20s on the Edge Sport-a wider grille, dual exhausts, and a more aggressive body.

"To be an ST, [a vehicle] has to be great to drive, and have credible, genuine performance". The chief engineer of the Ford Edge, Jonathan Crocker, claims that they have destroyed a lot of race tracks with this monster SUV.

Step into the cabin, and the Edge shows Ford's renewed commitment to technology.

According to Raj Nair, head of Ford's North America operations, the Edge is just the first vehicle in the array of SUVs that Ford has planned.

"We sold over 140,000 Edges a year ago, a fair portion of those were Edge Sports, but this really takes that to another level", Nair said.
