Ford Edge ST Unveiled Ahead Of Detroit Auto Show


Part of those special touches are ST badges and Ford Performance sill plates.

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. That engine is a specially tuned 2.7L EcoBoost twin turbo that makes 335hp and 380 lb-ft of torque. The entire 2019 Edge range comes equipped with a new eight-speed automatic transmission, but the ST trim gets paddle shifters and a Sport mode that alters shift points (as well as engine braking and throttle response).

Ford Australia has confirmed that non-ST versions of the SUV will be making their way to Australia, as a long awaited Territory replacement, though the model will be called "Endura" for our market, as Toyota owns local rights to the Edge name.

Steele drew upon a range of sources, including figures linked to Russian intelligence, to compile the dossier a year ago . Mr Simpson declined to say who he suspected the whistle-blower to be, but did not think it was a source of Mr Steele's.

Distinguishable from its lesser-powered brethren, you'll spot a wider grille, deeper side skirts and dual exhausts.

What's more, the standard ST wheels are 20-inch units, with an available 21-inch upgrade that brings with it Pirelli summer performance tires.

While the 2019 Ford Edge looks unmistakably Edge, the changes to the front-end styling are rather dramatic.

Police Forced To Evacuate Apple Store After iPhone Battery Explodes
Thune is not the only one seeking to learn more about Apple's handling of battery-related performance issues in iPhones. Senator John Thune (R-S.D.) on Tuesday sent a letter to Apple CEO Tim Cook, The Wall Street Journal reports .

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. An embedded Wi-Fi modem capable of supporting 10 devices up to 50 feet (15 m) from the vehicle is standard. LED bulbs come standard on higher trim levels, and are available on the base model as an option. The starting price for the 2019 Ford Edge ST crossover has been set at $40,675.

It is mated to a newly designed 8-speed transmission with Auto Start-Stop technology that efficiently turns the engine off when the vehicle is stopped and idling, then seamlessly restarts in milliseconds when the brake is released. For 2019 the Edge gains a redesigned centre console with a rotary gear-shift dial a-la Jaguar Land Rover, FordPass Connect as standard with a WiFi hotspot, the availability of wireless phone charging, and the availability of a new 12-speaker Bang & Olufsen Play premium audio system. It's like the existing Edge Sport, only more so.

Designers tweaked interior and exterior components on the Edge, giving the vehicle a wider grille and new fascia, but the refresh focuses most on technology.
