2019 Ford Edge ST Brings A Class-Leading Twin-Turbo V6 To Detroit 15
Posted by Michael Gauthier in Detroit-Auto-Show, Ford, Ford Edge, new cars on 01 15th, 2018

If you were in the market for a performance crossover from mainstream brands, your choices used to be fairly limited but that’s been changing over the past few years as automakers have rolled out models such as the Dodge Durango SRT and Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk.

The latest to join the fray is the Ford Edge ST which is celebrating its debut at the North American International Auto Show. While the model isn’t nearly as powerful as the Durango or Trackhawk, it features a twin-turbo 2.7-liter V6 engine which produces 335 hp (249 kW) and 380 lb-ft (514 Nm) of torque. It is connected to eight-speed automatic transmission and a standard all-wheel drive system.

Those aren’t earth-shattering figures but Ford says the Edge ST has the most powerful V6 engine in its class. It’s also a healthy increase over the previous Edge Sport which featured the same engine rated at 315 hp (234 kW) and 350 lb-ft (474 Nm) of torque.

Besides the upgraded engine, the Edge ST has a sport-tuned suspension and a special Sport mode which provides a more aggressive throttle response, revised shifting patterns, sharper engine braking, and a more robust exhaust note.

On the styling front, the crossover has an aggressive appearance thanks to a sportier front fascia with a mesh grille. The model has also been equipped with new side skirts, a unique dual exhaust system, and 20-inch wheels which can be outfitted with summer-only tires.

The interior receives some minor modifications including unique seats with ST badging and additional bolstering. Drivers will also find steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters and Ford Performance scuff plates.

The performance-oriented model is based on the facelifted Edge which features a revised front fascia with a new grille and standard LED headlights. The model also has a new hood, a revised liftgate, and an updated interior with a redesigned center console as well as a new rotary gear selector.

Under the hood, there’s an upgraded 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine which now produces 250 hp (186 kW) and 275 lb-ft (372 Nm) of torque. The engine is connected to a new eight-speed automatic transmission and it features start/stop technology to improve fuel efficiency.

Both the Edge and the Edge ST will go on sale in the United States this summer.

The New 2019 Ford Edge ST Is The Sharpest Yet 11
Posted by Carscoops Staff in Detroit-Auto-Show, Ford, Ford Edge, Ford Performance, Ford Videos, video on 01 11th, 2018

Mention the letters ST around hot-hatch enthusiasts and they’re bound to light up. But the latest addition to the Ford Performance lineup isn’t a Fiesta or a Focus. In fact it isn’t a hatchback at all (though it does have four doors and a tailgate). It’s an SUV.

Feast your eyes on the new Ford Edge ST, the sharpest version of Dearborn’s midsize crossover yet. It’s like the existing Edge Sport, only more so.

Under the hood sits the same 2.7-liter twin-turbo V6 as the Edge Sport, but instead of 315 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque, the Edge ST offers up 335 hp and 380 lb-ft. That puts it closer, in terms of output, to the Focus RS than to the Focus ST. The engine’s also mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission (instead of the old six-speed slushbox), with standard all-wheel drive – but while the steering wheel has paddle shifters, sadly a manual is not available.

It’s the most powerful engine that Ford’s ever fitted in this model – edging out, so to speak, the larger 3.5-liter atmospheric V6 with its 280 hp and 315 lb-ft. And according to the manufacturer, it’s the most powerful V6 offered in its class. 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.

What we do know is that the Edge has been tightened up all around in ST spec: the suspension, throttle response, shift patterns, engine braking, exhaust note, and styling have all been sharpened. There’s a more aggressive-looking aero pack, dual exhaust tips, and 21-inch wheels, and there’ll be an upgraded performance brake package offered as well – a good idea considering the levels of inertia involved in a performance SUV.

Along with the new ST model, Ford has upgraded the rest of the Edge lineup for 2019 with more safety systems, infotainment options, and powertrain equipment. Even the base 2.0-liter EcoBoost four now offers five more horsepower while returning better fuel economy, thanks in no small part to that eight-speed automatic.

Expect to see the sharpened Edge on show in Detroit starting next week, in all specifications – including the new ST (pictured in blue) and the premium Titanium model (in deep red).

Ford Edge Headed To Australia As The Diesel-Powered Endura 14
Posted by Michael Gauthier in Australia, Ford, Ford Edge on 11 14th, 2017

Crossover and SUV sales are booming in Australia and Ford is looking to tap into that momentum by announcing plans to launch the all-new Endura.

Set to go on sale late next year, the Endura will be a renamed version of the Edge and it will join existing models such as the Escape, EcoSport, and Everest.

Ford is keeping detailed specifications under wraps but confirmed the Endura will be offered exclusively as a five-seater with a diesel engine. There’s no word on which diesel engine the company is talking about but the European version of the Edge features a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo-diesel that has outputs of 180 PS (132 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque as well as 210 PS (154 kW) and 450 Nm (331 lb-ft) of torque.

Regardless of what’s under the hood, Ford said the model will be positioned as a premium crossover that comes highly-equipped and offers an extensive assortment of driver assistance features.

While it seems odd that Ford would go through the trouble of renaming the Edge, the company says the Endura name is shorthand for Endurance and it represents “strength, durability, reliability and sportiness, which are key attributes of this all-new vehicle.”

Ford Australia President and CEO Graeme Whickman added “The appetite for SUVs in this country is impressive, so we’re excited to bring a premium new offering from our global portfolio to local audiences.”
