We recently shared news that Ford Motor Company is staking a serious claim on trucks and SUVs. We’re reminded of that with the announcement of the 2019 Ford Edge ST. When it arrives at Palmetto Ford Truck Sales, it will easily be the sportiest version of this SUV we’ve seen yet.
Available later this year, it’s one of the models that kicks off the SUV’s next generation. The ST trim gets an engine all its own, a 2.7-liter V-6 EcoBoost engine with 335 hp and 380 lb-ft of torque (other trims get a 250 horsepower EcoBoost four-cylinder engine). Along with that, it’ll also come with larger rear rotors, manual paddle shifters, and stiffer suspension. Given the horsepower boost, we expect the available performance brake package to be popular.
This is just one of many changes due on the 2019 Ford Edge. IT World Canada reported on a sneak peek it got during the 2018 Canadian International Auto Show. Through it, we learned that even other Ford Edge trims will see some interesting changes.
Ford is calling this “the smartest SUV in its class,” and there’s substance behind that boast. There are more driver-assist features available here than on many competitors. Evasive steering assist is new, and helps you maneuver around vehicles that make sudden stops. That’s in addition to smart cruise control, parking assist features, and much, much more. Wireless charging, Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, and a host of other features are also on offer.
