Ford recently has focused a lot on winning over enthusiasts, developing a performance lineup full of hot hatches, pony cars, off-road trucks and a race-proven supercar.
Well, that soon will change. It will bring Ford's SUV lineup up-to-speed with crosstown rivals General Motors Co. and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV, which past year unveiled performance trims for full-size SUV models.
The 2019 Ford Edge ST was unveiled Thursday, the latest iteration of the popular Ford crossover and the first to wear the ST badge.
The tweaked 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 in the Edge ST makes 335 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque, increases of 20 hp and 30 pound-feet over the current Edge Sport AWD with the same engine. That is connected to a quicker-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission that routes power to all four wheels. Paddle shifters are included standard, and when in Sport mode they'll be handy as the automatic gearbox calibration will hold gears at redline during cornering manoeuvres to avoid unwanted upshifts.
No pricing details are available at this point for the new Ford Performance Edge ST model, but a 2018 Ford Edge Sport retails for roughly $40,000.
It's only two years since the Ford Edge SUV arrived in the United Kingdom market as a big brother to the Kuga and Ecosport in Ford's SUV range, but it's already getting a bit of a facelift.
The addition of the ST badge brings bigger wheels-21-inchers vs. 20s on the Edge Sport-a wider grille, dual exhausts, and a more aggressive body.

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.

Other ST features include better handling, braking, suspension and engine performance.
