  • 2019 Ford Edge ST

It is the first Ford SUV to have been tuned by Ford Performance, who are of course the same people who designed and built the GT supercar.

Ford has announced that a new version of the Edge SUV will be rolling into dealerships and this flavor is the first ST SUV Ford has offered.

With SUVs now dominating the USA sales charts it's no surprise manufacturers are filling in the white spaces with new models, options and features.

Ford is upping its safety game on the 2019 Edge by making a lot of electronic safety equipment standard.

WhatsApp beta now lets users switch between voice calls and video calls
Once added, the feature will save users' time by allowing them to seamlessly switching between video and voice calls. It's hardly a revolutionary change but it helps make the whole WhatsApp calling experience a little more seamless.

With less than a week before all of the new reveals at the 2018 North American International Auto Show, Ford has unveiled its all-new Edge ST, the first SUV from the Ford Performance Team. Changes include a bit more power, a facelift and an Edge ST model.

"ST" stands for "Sport Technologies", and in the present day, it's come to be associated with small, engaging, sporty performance hatchbacks like the Ford Fiesta ST, Ford Focus ST, and... that's it. Expect the new model to reach UAE, KSA and other GCC markets by early next year.

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. In the Edge, the ST engine produces 335 horsepower and 380 lb. -ft. of torque, slightly less than F-150's 400 lb. -ft., but still an increase over the current Edge Sport, which also uses the 2.7L, albeit tuned to 315 horsepower and 350 lb. -ft. of torque. That includes five more horsepower for the standard 2.0-liter EcoBoost and a new eight-speed automatic to replace the old six-speed. Ford, keen on finding out if the crossover craze and the innate gearhead love of performance have an intersecting point on the vehicular Venn diagram, made a decision to kick things up a notch by offering the new Edge in ST trim.

There's also a revised 2.0-litre Ecoboost turbo petrol that gets a slight power bump, pushing outputs to 250hp (186kW) and 275lb-ft (373Nm). Paddle shifters allow drivers to switch into manual mode. It comes with standard 20-inch wheels, but a 21-inch wheel option is also available, as are Pirelli P Zero tires.

Canes defenseman Noah Hanifin to represent Metro in NHL All-Star Game
The All-Star event will consist of a skills competition (Jan. 27), followed by the three-game tournament in a 3-on-3 fashion. Ferland opened the scoring 29 seconds into the game during a 2-on-1 off a pass from Sean Monahan.

In the US Ford has also improved the standard kit list on the Edge, but it's not yet know if that will be reflected on United Kingdom models.

The ST isn't meant to be a track vehicle. Mercedes-Benz offers AMG versions of virtually every ute in its line-up.

On the outside, the Edge ST features a unique front fascia that bears a striking resemblance to the ST-brand cars. "This thing is invigorating".

Put the SUV into Sport Mode and the song the Edge ST makes gets even heavier and more visceral.
