Ford ST Performance
When you involve the Ford Performance Team in anything, you are going to get more power than you'll know what to do with. The 2019 Ford Edge ST is propelled by a specially-tuned 2.7-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost engine that pumps out 335 horsepower at 5,550 rpm and 380 lb.-ft. of torque at 3,250 rpm. This SUV handles like a sport car thanks to the intelligent all-wheel drive with disconnect and Ford Performance Tuned Suspension that has a lower center of gravity than other Edge models and offers better body control, cornering, and steering control. The redesigned center console features an all-new rotary gearshift dial that controls the eight-speed automatic transmission. You can also manually shift with the steering wheel-mounted SelectShift paddle shifters. Some of the other performance perks of the new Ford Edge ST include unique 21-inch wheels, dual-exhaust outlets, and a wide mesh grille for optimal cooling.
The 2019 Ford Edge ST is easily the smartest SUV ever, which in turn makes it exceptionally safe. In fact, the Ford Edge ST comes standard with more driver-assist technology than any other midsize SUV. You'll drive with confidence thanks to a whole host of first-in-segment features such as Post-Collision Braking, Evasive Steering Assist, and Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go and Lane Centering. If that wasn't enough protection you'll also have access to standard and optional safety features such as:
• Forward Collision Warning and Dynamic Brake Support
• Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection
• BLIS with Cross-Traffic Alert
• Lane-Keeping Alert and Assist
• 911 Assist
• Rain-sensing wipers
• Rear view camera
• Innovative active glove box knee airbag front and rear ultrasonic sensors
• 180-degree front camera
• Enhanced Active Park Assist
Comfort and Connection
If you can't stay connected and comfortable in an SUV, it's hard to navigate the modern driving world. Thankfully, the 2019 Ford Edge ST is just packed — and we mean packed — with all the latest hi-tech features. You'll just love the available wireless charging pad in the forward media bin and if you demand the best audio quality possible, there is a 12-speaker B&O PLAY Premium Audio System by Harman that is specially tuned for the Ford Edge ST. For all your connectivity needs there is FordPass Connect, with a Wi-Fi hotspot that gives Internet access to up to 10 devices and SYNC with AppLink that supports the new Ford+Alexa app. You and your passengers will ride in luxury thanks to the ST bolstered bucket seats with City Silver stitching, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and optional heated and cooled front seats.
