Ford Announces 2019 Ford Edge ST — Sharper Edge

Sharper Edge: Ford Announces 2019 Ford Edge ST Ford Expands ST Trim to Edge SUV

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.

In recent years, Ford has rolled out a variety of performance variants on the passenger auto side, such as the tire squealing Focus ST. Connected to a quicker-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission, the engine has the ability to route power to the four wheels. Changes include a bit more power, a facelift and an Edge ST model.

The 2019 Edge in the United States remains about the same mechanically in its base form, using the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which has received an additional 5 hp for a total of 250 horsepower (186 kilowatts).

Raj Nair, the president of North American operations at Ford, said during an interview that the automaker is planning to be much more aggressive in the standardizing of features that assist the driver.

Ford Motor said on Thursday it will make automatic emergency brakes standard on two key 2019 models, an effort by the No. 2 US automaker to catch up with rivals in offering the new technology created to help vehicles avoid collisions. It's like the existing Edge Sport, only more so. A 12-speaker B&O Play system from Harman will handle audio.

According to Ford, the Edge ST will have the most powerful V6 engine in its class that includes a 2.7-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost engine.

The 2019 Ford Edge ST flaunts a black hexagonal grille with deeper side skirts, unique dual exhaust outlets and rides on the standard 20- or available 21-inch wheels.

The exterior upgrades to the Edge ST are as unruly as the SUV's target demographic, with the mesh grille and front fascia both enabling the two turbos to breathe better and making the SUV appear ready to swallow Mercedes-AMG GLA45s for breakfast.

The Edge ST will be shown off in the metal at the Detroit Motor Show next week when further details will be revealed. That trans has paddle shifters. There's now autonomous emergency braking, evasive steering assist, and adaptive cruise control with stop and go functioning on offer.

Naturally plenty of driver-assistance technologies are standard, including forward-collision warning with dynamic brake support, pre-collision assist with pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, lane-keep assist, auto high beam, and hill-start assist.

There's also built-in WiFi with a 50-foot radius, wireless charging pad and the latest Sync 3 infotainment system, which has one feature that could come in very handy in a speedy vehicle like the Edge ST: Waze integration, including its police car-spotting tool. There's a WiFi hotspot that'll let you connect up to 10 devices, and Ford says you can also upgrade to an eight-inch touchscreen.
