The New 2019 Ford Edge ST Is The Sharpest Yet

Ford will fit the brakes on its redesigned 2019 Edge midsize crossover vehicle and its new 2019 Ranger midsize pickup

Ford begins introducing the coveted ST brand to its SUV lineup with the unveiling of the all-new Edge ST today, building on its best-ever SUV sales year in the U.S. The Dearborn-based automaker sold 142,603 Edges previous year, making it the third-best selling SUV for the company.

Ford has officially revealed the 2019 Ford Edge ST.

The usual facelift fodder applies, with the Edge getting a new front end with Ecosport-like grille and new LED headlights, and the back end loses its full-width light cluster which is replaced by new tail lights and a black glass panel in between. This includes Forward Collision Warning and Dynamic Brake Support; Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection; BLIS with Cross-Traffic Alert; Lane-Keeping Alert; Lane-Keeping Assist; Auto High Beams; and Hill-Start Assist.

Evasive Steering Assist: Helps drivers steer around stopped or slower vehicles to help avoid collisions. Edge models will come standard with FordPass Connect, a WiFi hotspot that can connect up to 10 devices. The modem also means there will be expanded functionality for customers who use Amazon's Alexa voice service; owners will be able to access their vehicles remotely using Alexa to do things like lock or unlock the doors, start the engine, and check the fuel level.

But Aquino and others noted that all the technology wouldn't be worth much if the Edge wasn't a fun ride. The V6 is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive is standard. The standard vehicle comes with a 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine paired with an 8-speed transmission. It features a souped-up version of the 2.7-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 from the Edge Sport that pumps out 335 hp and 380 lb-ft (515 Nm) of torque - 20 hp and 30 lb-ft more than the Sport. And while there's no stick available, the paddle shifters will give you manual control over the changes.

Twitch announces exclusive Overwatch League livestreaming deal
The Overwatch League will run, at the Blizzard Arena in Los Angeles, until June, with play-offs and finals scheduled for July. The deal, announced yesterday, is believed to be the biggest exclusive distribution deal in esports history.

Stephanie Brinley, senior analyst at IHS Markit, said the exterior design and technology updates on the Edge are notable and important to consumers.

Further performance tweaks have been made in the shape of ST-tuned suspension and the inclusion of a new sport mode, which sharpens the throttle response, gearbox and delivers greater engine braking.

The 2019 Edge is scheduled to go on sale in late summer and will make its public debut at the North American International Auto Show on January 14.

Inside, a redesigned center console is accentuated by an all-new rotary gearshift dial that frees up space, allows easier access to the wireless charging pad and enhances the vehicle's modern, sophisticated feel.
