2018 Detroit Motor Show: Ford's ST family appears to gain an Edge 2019 Ford Edge ST: So This Is Happening

Inside, the Edge ST offers unique seats with additional bolstering, while design cues on the steering wheel, seat backs, and scuff plates remind that this SUV has been given the Ford Performance touch.

The 2019 Edge ST marks the first Ford SUV to wear the ST badge; a badge reserved for vehicles developed with the assistance of Ford Performance.

First Ford performance SUV model won't be its last.

The performance enhancements don't stop with the engine, however; as Ford Edge Vehicle Engineering Manager Jonathan Crocker told us, a vehicle has to meet certain acceleration, handling, and braking targets in order to earn the illustrious ST badge. The Dearborn-based automaker sold 142,603 Edges a year ago, making it the third-best selling SUV for the company. Full LED headlamps are standard, LED fog lamps and signature lighting are available and a redesigned hood imparts a wider, more planted stance.

Ford will unveil its new 2019 Edge ST crossover SUV at the Detroit Auto Show next week. That includes: Forward collusion warning and dynamic brake support; pre-collision assist with pedestrian detection; BLIS with cross-traffic alert; lane-keeping alert; lane-keeping assist; auto high beams and hill-start assist.

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

Evasive Steering Assist: Helps drivers steer around stopped or slower vehicles to help avoid collisions. There's also available adaptive cruise-control and lane-centering features. A 12-speaker B&O Play system from Harman will handle audio.

Standard on all Edge models is FordPass Connect, with a Wi-Fi hotspot that gives internet access to up to 10 devices.

But Aquino and others noted that all the technology wouldn't be worth much if the Edge wasn't a fun ride. He declined to say when Ford planned to make automatic emergency brakes standard on all its US models. The 2019 Ford Edge ST will be powered by the automaker's 2.7-liter twin-turbocharged V-6 that appears in the Fusion Sport and Edge Sport, but with a small power bump to bring it up to ST levels of performance. Mated to the EcoBoost engine is an 8-speed automatic transmission that sends power to all four wheels. Edge owners with a penchant for collecting speeding tickets will surely enjoy feeding that dust to the competition behind the wheel of the Edge ST rather than a lower trim. A new eight-speed automatic gearbox takes care of putting the power down. All models have a redesigned center console housing the rotary gearshift dial Ford's rolled out on some of its vehicles.
