Ford Edge ST with 335 horsepower set for Detroit Auto Show reveal

Sharper Edge: Ford Announces 2019 Ford Edge ST

The Edge becomes the Detroit automaker's first high-performance crossover model - though it's not likely to be the last, Ford officials hinted at a background briefing ahead of the 2019 Edge ST unveiling at the North American International Auto Show next week.

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.

Although Ford is branding the sportier Edge as an ST, the SUV interestingly seems to have more in common with the Fusion Sport than the Focus or Fiesta ST models. Power is provided - just like in the Sport model - via a 2.7-liter biturbo V6, for the ST providing 335 hp (250 kW) and 380 pound-feet (515 Newton-meters) of torque, against 315 hp (235 kW) and 350 lb-ft (475 Nm) in the Sport.

Ford will also be offering it with the 3.5-liter V6 engine that will be delivering about 280hp.The Edge ST will also get all the ST specs setting as well as the aero pack, dual exhaust tips, 21inch wheels and more. And while there's no stick available, the paddle shifters will give you manual control over the changes.

Ford has given the 2019 Edge ST a new Sport Mode as well, which provides a more aggressive throttle response, sharper engine braking, shifting patterns that hold gears near the redline through cornering maneuvers, as well as a more resonant exhaust tone.

The Ford Edge ST's software also plays nice with Amazon's Alexa voice service, allowing users to interact with the digital assistant straight from the vehicle. Additionally, the Edge ST will also offer selectable traction control, a performance brake package and Sport Mode driving. The eight-speed auto comes with stop/start. "Why not have the performance elements of cars migrate to SUVs, too?"

Designers tweaked interior and exterior components on the Edge, giving the vehicle a wider grille and new fascia, but the refresh focuses most on technology. It rides on unique 21-inch wheels and has special design cues on the inside.

Edge sales have improved steadily in the competitive and rapidly growing Middle CUV segment in the USA, hitting 142,603 units past year when it was Ford's fastest-growing SUV brand at 6.0%, according to WardsAuto data.

The new 2019 Ford Edge is slated to arrive in dealerships this coming summer.

The vehicle has WiFi capability for up to 10 devices.
