Ford Edge ST revealed as proper performance variant

Ford Edge ST revealed as proper performance variant

We expect 0 to 60 miles per hour to come in the low-5-second range, and Crocker tells us that the Ford Performance division, which helped develop the vehicle, has stringent braking and handling requirements that must be met in order for something to wear the badge.

The new Edge ST has an "elevated sense of design", with more bold and aggressive stance, said Steve Gilmore, the SUV's design manager. "From a performance standpoint, and with its SUV silhouette and versatility, it sets a new standard Edge fans will love to drive". Featuring fresh styling tweaks, and updated semi-autonomous technology, the 2019 Edge could be a worthy competitor in the SUV space.

Delivering the power is a new quick-shifting 8-speed automatic that's connected to a full-time all-wheel drive system. The Edge designer Steve Gilmore stated that the ST edition is powered by a 335 horsepower twin turbo V-6 engine, and has been created to look "Sinister". Available 21-inch wheels round off the souped-up Edge's intentioned look, but Ford made sure to throw plenty of "ST" badges around the interior as well as paddle shifters and bolstered seats so occupants don't forget that this is actually a full-blown performance model, not just an overpowered grocery-getter. The current Edge Sport pricing starts at $41,670, hinting the ST version to be priced somewhere near.

None of the bug numbers are out yet, but we expect the Edge ST to come close to the 17/24 mpg city/highway of the Edge Sport.

Bruno Mars and Cardi B will be bringing their " Finesse " to the ceremony, with the latter making her GRAMMY performance debut. Previously announced performers include Childish Gambino, Lady Gaga , Little Big Town , Patti LuPone , P!nk, and Ben Platt .

Out back, the 2019 Edge ST sports unique dual exhaust outlets and an aggressive lower diffuser, which when tied together with the new front end and the new wheels makes for one great-looking mid-sized SUV.

The new 2019 Ford Edge is the first auto in a series of hot rod SUVs the automaker will launch. 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.

The standard engine for the new Edge is a turbocharged 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder making a healthy 250 horsepower and 275 pounds-feet of torque. The eight-speed auto is also present, along with standard AWD, a sport-tuned suspension and upgraded brakes. It is also mated to the eight-speed automatic, but the transmission gets a special tune and different gear ratios. There's now autonomous emergency braking, evasive steering assist, and adaptive cruise control with stop and go functioning on offer. Drivers can also upgrade to SYNC 3 with an 8-inch touchscreen for enhanced in-vehicle experience.
