Ford Shows Off Their High-Performance 2019 Edge ST SUV Ahead Of The 2018 Detroit Auto Show
The 2018 Detroit Auto Show AKA North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) kicks off this weekend, but Ford couldn’t wait to show off their high-performance 2019 Edge ST. This SUV not only looks incredible, but also performs nothing like a typical SUV. The 2019 Edge received a remarkable cosmetic overhaul as well as getting stocked with much more tech. The 2019 Edge ST is the first time that Ford brought the high-performance variant to one of their SUVs.
The Detroit Auto Show officially starts on January 14, but we get a glimpse of what the future holds for Ford. The Ford Performance team enhanced the regular old Edge and gave the ST variant a 2.7-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V-6 that pumps out 335 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque. The high-performance variant of the Edge crossover boasts the most powerful V6 engine in its class. There are paddle shifters for manual gear changes in the ST version. A new “sport mode” allows drivers to experience more aggressive driving while maintaining comfort and control. Speaking of control, the ST variant also gets larger brakes, a firmer sport-tuned suspension, and 21-inch wheels wrapped in sticky summer tires. This is a track-worthy machine.
