The move toward ST could signal a sea change for Ford Performance.
A new ST version was recently revealed as the hero of the Ford Edge SUV range in the U.S., replacing the former Sport variant, but unfortunately it isn't likely we will see the revamped model here any time soon.
Ford also plans to offer an Edge ST variant, marking the first time the company has attached the performance label to an SUV.
Check out Ford Motor Company's new SUV: Edge ST
The new 2019 Edge ST is the first performance-enhanced SUV to ever join Ford's lineup. This, of course, means the Edge ST is powered exclusively by Ford's twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6, which generates 335 horsepower 380 pound-feet of torque.
The 2019 Edge and Edge ST will arrive in dealerships this summer. 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.
Eden Hazard, Thibaut Courtois will sign new deals at Stamford Bridge
Eden Hazard has confirmed he will sign a new contract at Chelsea after Thibaut Courtois does the same. The Belgian has also admitted it would "be a dream" to play under Zidane, whom he calls an "idol".
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. Statistics show that the vast majority of USA auto buyers usually purchase utility vehicles while others preserve their preference for performance. Ford has sold 2 million Edges globally and 1.3 million in North America. A new eight-speed automatic gearbox takes care of putting the power down. Ford also included a Sport mode, which is created to deliver optimal transmission and engine performance.
Unfortunately, we don't have pricing or the date of availability yet, but with the 2019 Ford Edge ST set to make its formal debut next week at the Detroit Auto Show, we can expect the full details soon.
Edge sales have improved steadily in the competitive and rapidly growing Middle CUV segment in the US, hitting 142,603 units a year ago when it was Ford's fastest-growing SUV brand at 6.0%, according to WardsAuto data.
