Performance upgrades like what the Edge ST will offer typically capture male buyers.
Connected up to the engine is a new eight-speed automatic transmission sending power to all four wheels. Other upgrades include an ST-tuned sport suspension and an available performance brake package.
Ford product planners sent the engineering wonks in Ford Performance a key to the Ford Edge, and they responded the only way they know how: with the brand new Ford Edge ST. "From a performance standpoint, and with its SUV silhouette and versatility, it sets a new standard Edge fans will love to drive". As you can probably tell, the Edge ST also stands out from the crowd thanks to an aggressive body kit, 21-inch wheels, and dual exhaust.More news: Cleveland Cavaliers could face pressure to re-sign Isaiah Thomas in 2018
While the 2019 Ford Edge looks unmistakably Edge, the changes to the front-end styling are rather dramatic.
The 2019 Edge, which goes on sale this summer, will also offer new optional safety features, including a more sophisticated cruise control system as well as automatic steering assist to help avoid potential crashes.
That last system, also brand-new to Ford, is of particular interest; if the vehicle detects that it's coming up on an obstacle where an evasive steering maneuver is warranted, it will administer a warning, reduce steering effort in the appropriate direction, and automatically provide maximum yaw damping and stability control to support a quick, sudden evasive maneuver. Edge models will come standard with FordPass Connect, a WiFi hotspot that can connect up to 10 devices.More news: Blood shortage prompts urgent call for people to donate
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). It's all mated to a new 8-speed transmission. Interior designers freed up space with a revised center console featuring a rotary gearshift dial, making room for an optional wireless charging pad.
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.More news: Canada braces for possible U.S. exit from NAFTA trade pact
The usual facelift fodder applies, with the Edge getting a new front end with Ecosport-like grille and new LED headlights, and the back end loses its full-width light cluster which is replaced by new tail lights and a black glass panel in between.
