Ford Edge ST is Ford's Performance SUV

Sharper Edge: Ford Announces 2019 Ford Edge ST Ford Expands ST Trim to Edge SUV

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 2019 Edge represents a paradigm shift for Ford because for the first time ever, there's an ST model available to tackle the track after dropping the kiddos off at school-proving that yes, even the most outlandish wants and needs of the consumer have fully migrated to the SUV platform. The revised engine will also be paired to a new 8-speed automatic transmission. Other upgrades include an ST-tuned sport suspension and an available performance brake package. The 2019 Ford Edge ST will be powered by the automaker's 2.7-liter twin-turbocharged V-6 that appears in the Fusion Sport and Edge Sport, but with a small power bump to bring it up to ST levels of performance. "From a performance standpoint, and with its SUV silhouette and versatility, it sets a new standard Edge fans will love to drive". A mesh grille, darkened headlights and unique 21-inch wheels highlight the new appearance on the outside.

Ford adds a suite of driver-assistance technology to all '19 Edge models including forward collision braking and post-collision braking, pedestrian detection, lane-keeping alert and assist and blindspot and cross-traffic alert.

All-new Edge ST vehicle will be fully revealed at the Detroit Motor Show.

Tesla starts Solar Roof production in Buffalo
They were first presented in October 2016, while the United States company started taking orders at the beginning of May 2017. New York City has invested $750 million to support the construction of the 1.2 million square foot factory in Buffalo.

Ford will also fit the auto standard with AvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control, Curve Control, and 911 Assist.

As expected from Ford, both Edge ST and Edge are gaining some new technology for 2019. Evasive steering assist helps a driver avoid a collision with "steering support" to get around an obstacle in the case of imminent impact. Edge models will come standard with FordPass Connect, a WiFi hotspot that can connect up to 10 devices. Given that the engine only makes 5 extra horsepower over its predecessor yet features stop-start technology, expect the majority of improvement to be seen in fuel economy. A Bang & Olufen 12-speaker audio system is also on the options sheet.

SYNC with AppLink™, an enhanced voice-recognition communications and entertainment system, is also standard. This class-leading power will flow through a new 8-speed automatic transmission. Interior designers freed up space with a revised center console featuring a rotary gearshift dial, making room for an optional wireless charging pad. It's like the existing Edge Sport, only more so.
