The 2019 Edge ST, which makes its world debut at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show, is the first crossover in the Ford lineup to undergo serious performance tinkering. It comes packing a 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine that pushes out 335 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque.
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. The V6 is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive is standard. The combination of extra output and tight gear spacing will keep the engine in the powerband and deliver brisk acceleration at any speed. Ford also included a Sport mode, which is created to deliver optimal transmission and engine performance.
Minn. facing potentially severe flu season as hospitalizations climb
Symptoms are often similar, but the onset of flu is marked by abrupt fever, chills and often body aches, sore throat and a cough. The Skagit Valley Herald reports the woman who died of the flu there was also over 65 with a chronic medical condition.
In terms of looks, the new Edge ST SUV stands out from the other 2019 Ford Edge vehicles by featuring deeper side skirts, a black hexagonal grille, and dual exhaust outlets. It also rides on unique 21-inch wheels.
Of course, today's buyer requires more than just performance. The Edge also has available post-collision braking, which Ford said automatically applies moderate brake pressure in the event of a collision to avoid further injury, damage to the vehicle or a second collision.
Zuckerberg makes FB News Feed more 'meaningful'
In contrast, "passively reading articles or watching videos - even if they're entertaining or informative - may not be as good". The change is the biggest tweak the social network has made to the news feed - essentially the soul of Facebook - in years.
The 2019 model comes standard with forward-collision warning, dynamic-brake support, pre-collision assist, pedestrian detection, blind-spot detection, cross-traffic alert, lane-keeping alert and assist, automatic high beams and hill-start assist. In addition, standard safety features include AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control and Curve Control, and 911 Assist.
"Edge drivers expect a sophisticated, modern driving experience", Cristina Aquino, Edge marketing manager said in the release. The Focus and Fiesta, by contrast, come with turbo in-line four-cylinder engines, front-wheel drive and only are offered with six-speed manual transmissions.
Is Matt Patricia set to spurn the Lions for the Giants?
The Lions are an ideal landing spot for Patricia because the team's general manager Bob Quinn was a former Patriots executive. The Indianapolis Colts , Chicago Bears and the Giants interviewed McDaniels, while the Arizona Cardinals interviewed Flores.
The Ford Edge is getting a sharp one. The FordPass Connect multimedia connectivity system with Wi-Fi will be standard, enabling the connection of up to 10 wireless personal electronic devices, and enabling communication with smartphones via the FordPass app. The Edge also gets Auto Start-Stop tech to improve economy. That last item connects your vehicle with your home Amazon assistant, allowing you to keep up with daily appointments, check for nearby points of interest and even make some purchases without ever leaving the driver's seat. The upgraded Sync 3 system expands on the range of possibilities, and includes an 8.0-inch touch screen and a 12-speaker Bang and Olufsen premium audio.
