Ford Enters Performance SUV Segment With 355-Horsepower 2019 Edge ST

Ford has yet to release any performance figures, however. The new 2019 Ford Edge will come equipped with the standard 2-liter engine, offering enhanced performance and fuel economy compared to its predecessor.

Ford also states that the 2019 Edge ST is their smartest SUV ever.

Delivering the power is a new quick-shifting 8-speed automatic that's connected to a full-time all-wheel drive system. The Blue Oval automaker isn't saying what it'll do, but the Edge Sport could dispatch 0-60 times in about 5.7 seconds and run the quarter-mile in 14.3, and you can expect to see the new Edge ST better those numbers. The newest member of the ST family features the most powerful V6 engine available in its class, a specially tuned 2.7-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost engine with 335 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque.

Besides its track-tested suspension and race-ready seats, the Edge ST's looks take a dark turn, with a honeycomb black gloss grill and matching 21-inch shiny black rims with big red brake calipers peeking through.

Of course, the 2019 Edge will be fitted with all the latest connectivity and driver assistance technology. Ford has sold 2 million Edges globally and 1.3 million in North America.

Out back, the 2019 Edge ST sports unique dual exhaust outlets and an aggressive lower diffuser, which when tied together with the new front end and the new wheels makes for one great-looking mid-sized SUV.

Kenyatta's discussion with Zuma will focus on bridging the balance of trade which is now highly in favor of South Africa. Deputy chief justice Raymond Zondo, selected by the chief justice will head the commission, Zuma said in the statement.

Ford has launched a new performance SUV that is the first to wear the ST badge and slots into Ford's performance line with the Focus ST and other cars.

Ford says the vehicle will feature a new Sport mode with sharper throttle response and shifting behaviour, so it'll be more likely to sit by the redline. FordPass Connect is standard, including a Wi-Fi hotspot that gives internet access to up to 10 devices.

Updates for the 2019 Edge include a new look grille as well as new safety technology, including mild autonomous functionality called "adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go and lane centring", as well as post-collision braking and evasive steering assist. Because the Edge already has the Sport model in its ranks, the Edge ST won't be quite as dramatic a step up in performance as the ST models in the Focus and Fiesta ranges are.

It gets better for those living in the U.S. though.

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.
