The 2019 Edge ST is the first Ford crossover to receive the ST performance treatment.
The ST will replace the Sport in the Edge model lineup for the 2019 model year.
Powering the Edge ST is a 2.7-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine producing 335 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque.
The engine mates to an enhanced eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters.
A Sport mode calls up optimal engine and transmission performance to hold gears near redline when cornering and will rev-match for downshifts.
Sharper handling comes courtesy of an uprated suspension that Ford claims is still compliant for daily driving.
Bigger brakes and available 21-inch wheels wrapped with Pirelli P Zero summer tires further improve handling.
Ford will also offer the 2019 Edge ST with an optional performance brake system.
Visually, the Edge ST sets itself apart from regular models with a black hexagonal grille, deeper side skirts, vertical exhaust outlets.
The 2019 Ford Edge and Edge ST will arrive in dealers' showrooms at the end of summer.
