  • Ford Refreshes 2019 Edge Launches 335-HP ST Model

It's the company's first SUV tuned by the Ford Performance team responsible for the GT supercar, zippy Focus RS and powerful F-150 Raptor.

Well, that soon will change.

The ST edition of the Edge sport utility vehicle that Ford introduced Thursday in advance of the Detroit auto show is powered by a 335-horsepower twin-turbo V-6 engine, engineered on the track and styled to look "sinister", said its designer Steve Gilmore.

Ford adds the sporty ST trim level to its Edge lineup as part of a midcycle refresh of the 5-passenger midsize SUV that goes on sale this summer as a '19 model.

Coinciding with the 2019 facelift for the US Ford Edge, Ford is introducing a performance ST variant for the first time. 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".

That, in turn, is fixed to a "quick-shifting" eight-speed automatic gearbox and four-wheel-drive.

No pricing details are available at this point for the new Ford Performance Edge ST model, but a 2018 Ford Edge Sport retails for roughly $40,000.

Special seats in the Edge ST with additional bolstering will help keep you in place through turns, while its redesigned centre console features an all-new rotary gearshift dial that frees up space to allow for extra kit such a wireless charging pad. It gets the same pedestrian spoiler that's found on the more basic Edge models, the same gloss black panel on the liftgate, and up front, an upper grille that's no bigger or more aggressive-looking than on those CUVs.

Ford will also fit unique 21-inch wheels to the Edge ST, to make sure it's not mistaken for the standard model.

The Edge ST offers a Sport Mode that provides heightened throttle response, rev-matched downshifts on braking, sharper engine braking and gear-holding in cornering.

Of course, today's buyer requires more than just performance. The standard vehicle comes with a 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine paired with an 8-speed transmission. The standard 2.0-liter EcoBoost underneath puts out five more horsepower, for 250 hp total (we're assuming that's on the same 93 octane the current Edge uses to get its 245 hp) and returns better, but undisclosed, gas mileage.

Ford has officially revealed the 2019 Ford Edge ST.

Ford also states that the 2019 Edge ST is their smartest SUV ever.

Talking about technology, the St comes with Sync 3 which features Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Amazon Alexa integration and a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot for up to 10 devices.
