Ford unveils Edge ST Performance SUV

Sharper Edge: Ford Announces 2019 Ford Edge ST

The ST is also visually distinguishable - there's a new mesh grille, new ide skirts and a modified rear bumper with dual exhaust outlets, along with sportier seats inside. The company will unveil the model and improvements to its entire Edge line at the at the 2018 North American International Auto Show next week.

Revealed ahead of a public debut at this month's Detroit Motor Show, the titivated Edge isn't actually expected to arrive in the United Kingdom and Europe until 2019, but the reveal gives us a pretty clear idea of what Ford will be offering in the UK's Edge facelift then.

Built at the Oakville Assembly Plant in Oakville, Ontario, the new Ford Edge and all-new Edge ST are scheduled to arrive in showrooms this summer.

The likely reason is that the 2.7-litre Ecoboost V6 is now only engineered for left-hand drive models, hence why we don't get the Edge Sport or the Fusion (Mondeo) Sport in Australia. Evasive steering assist helps a driver avoid a collision with "steering support" to get around an obstacle in the case of imminent impact. "And you have to live with it every day", said Jonathan Crocker, Edge vehicle engineering manager. LED bulbs come standard on higher trim levels, and are available on the base model as an option. A 12-speaker premium audio system by Harman is available, as is the Sync 3 infotainment system with an 8-inch screen.

Further performance tweaks have been made in the shape of ST-tuned suspension and the inclusion of a new sport mode, which sharpens the throttle response, gearbox and delivers greater engine braking. That last item connects your auto with your home Amazon assistant, allowing you to keep up with daily appointments, check for nearby points of interest and even make some purchases without ever leaving the driver's seat.

The 2019 Edge in the U.S. 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). This class-leading power will flow through a new 8-speed automatic transmission. The interior features a new rotary shifter, replacing the console-mounted gearshift handle.

The Ford Edge SUV has been given a bit of a facelift for and has been revealed ahead of its debut in the USA at the Detroit Motor Show.

With a wider grille and freshened fascia that create an athletic, modern appearance, the new Edge maintains the reputation for sophistication it's carried for more than a decade.
