Ford Edge Sport becomes Edge ST for 2019: Ford Edge Sport becomes the Edge ST for 2019, receives 335 horsepower from the 2.7-liter Ecoboost V6. The new top crossover Edge also gets a sporty mode, a more rigid suspension adjustment.
Ford canceled the name Sport from the redesigned crossover 2019 Edge at the Detroit Auto Show and added the ST badge, a new sports grille, new shoes and the upgraded 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6, providing 335 hp. and 380 lb-ft of torque to an eight-speed automatic.
The lower trim levels of the 2019 Edge will introduce a number of new safety features into the lineup, including standard braking after a collision, which will help reduce potential secondary impacts after an accident, additional evasive steering support that provides steering support for emergency maneuvering and optional adaptive cruise control with a stop and the progress and alignment of the bands.
On the technological front, all customers will receive wireless charging of the smartphone, Wi-Fi access point and the Ford Pass application, which allows owners to launch, lock / unlock and find their Edge. Harman’s 12-speaker Harman audio system is available, as well as the 8-inch Sync 3 infotainment system.
The standard transmission for models other than the ST Edge is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine with a capacity of 250 hp. and 275 lb-ft of torque, as well as an eight-speed automatic transmission. Inside there is a recycled instrument panel with a rotary switch and a Ford with the option of Alexa. This last element connects your car with your Amazon house assistant, allowing you to keep up with daily meetings, check nearby attractions and even make purchases without even leaving the driver’s seat.
All-wheel drive is standard for ST models, optional on the base edge.
Edge was a strong seller for Ford in 2017. It grew in December and grew in a year and took second place in the mid-sized CUV segment under the Subaru Outback, but higher than the Hyundai Santa Fe.
The 2019 Ford Edge will go on sale in late summer 2018; we’ll see it next week at the North American International Auto Show.
Like the Fusion Sport, the Edge ST will be equipped with a sports mode, adjustable by the driver, which will change the position of the throttle, shift models, electronic stability control and an exhaust note. The Edge ST is also equipped with scale switches and heavy-duty seats, as well as a slightly different front and rear style, new side skirts and dual exhaust. It comes from a factory with a more rigid suspension setup and will be available in four new colors, the most notable of which is the blue Ford Performance model that you see in the photos.
Operational brakes are optional, as well as 21-inch wheels and summer tires Pirelli.
