2019 Ford Edge performance options announced
Performance vehicles often bring a certain image to mind. Most people will likely be thinking about a sleek sports car or a finely-tuned race car. Very few drivers hear the words high performance and think of an SUV. Luckily, Ford isn’t most people, which is why when the 2019 Ford Edge was introduced at the Detroit Auto Show, the high-performance ST trim was also announced.
Drivers who are looking for a vehicle that truly can do it all will love the 2019 Ford Edge ST. Adding to the already powerful engine options on the 2018 Ford Edge, the 2019 Ford Edge ST provides a 335-horsepower, 2.7L twin-turbocharged EcoBoost® engine with 380 pound-feet of torque. There are also a variety of features that set the 2019 Ford Edge ST apart from the other trim levels, like an 8-speed automatic transmission and standard all-wheel drive with selectable traction control.

2019 Ford Edge features and updates
Even without the new trim level, the 2019 Ford Edge was sure to be an exciting announcement, thanks to the redesigned grille, Bi-LED headlamps, and LED taillamps. Also included are a wide variety of driver assist features, like forward collision warning, dynamic brake support, pre-collision assist, lane keeping alert, and pedestrian detection. There are also some new advanced safety features, like post-collision braking, which will automatically apply the brakes when a collision has been detected, evasive steering assist, which will maneuver the vehicle around other vehicles that have slowed down or stopped in the middle of the road, and adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go and lane center, a feature that keeps the vehicle going at a steady pace in the center of its lane.
