Sharper Edge: Ford Announces 2019 Ford Edge ST

Sharper Edge: Ford Announces 2019 Ford Edge ST

Ford's revamped Edge SUV will be assembled in a plant in southern Ontario, a move a union official said signals jobs will be secure in the region as the automaker invests in new technology.

For example, the Blue Oval has chose to showcase there - in front of the worldwide audience of the North American International Auto Show - the updated Ford Edge midsize SUV, complete with the all-new introduction of the ST version.

When Ford said that they were going to offer more ST model, the last model that poeple think they would offer the ST model is the SUV but it looks like that is exactly what Ford wanted to do. The newest member of the ST family features the most powerful V6 engine available in its class, a specially tuned 2.7-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost engine with 335 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque.

The other Edge engine choices continue to be a 2.0-liter EcoBoost 4-cylinder (245 hp, 275 lb-ft, up 5 hp and 5 lb-ft from 2017) and naturally aspirated 3.5-liter V6 (280 hp, 250 lb-ft).

Visually, the Edge ST gets unique front and rear styling, with more aggressive grille and bumper treatments front and rear, unique dual exhaust outlets, a unique 21-inch wheel options, along with ST-branded badging inside and out.

The rest of the Ford Edge line-up also is updated for 2019, however. A "relaxed ESC" setting can be activated on the ST, which according to one engineer at Ford, will "widen the window for stability control".

The vehicle also has an embedded modem and Wi-Fi, able to fire up a hot spot with a 50-foot range, allowing up to 10 devices to connect to it.

See exhibit A, the Ford Edge ST. The engine is paired with an eight-speed automatic. But Ford's approach to the Edge ST is significant in that many so-called performance models are little more than appearance packages with no changes under the hood.

Ford will fit the brakes on its redesigned 2019 Edge midsize crossover vehicle and its new 2019 Ranger midsize pickup, that will compete later this year with the Chevrolet Colorado and Toyota Tacoma.

New driver-assist features include post-collision braking, to reduce the possibility of additional damage following an accident; an available adaptive cruise control system that functions down to a full stop and resumption of speed; and Evasive Steering Assist. A 12-speaker B&O Play system from Harman will handle audio. This includes Forward Collision 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.
