Offered only for Ford customers in the U.S., the all-new Edge ST is the first version of the new Edge SUV to be unveiled by Ford. The new Ford Edge will be introduced for customers in Europe later this year in Edge Vignale, ST-Line, Titanium and Trend variants, offering powerful new diesel engines,** sophisticated driver assistance technologies and enhanced styling. The all-new Edge ST that arrives in showrooms for customers in the U.S. this summer features superior handling and braking; a new quick-shifting eight-speed transmission; the most powerful V6 engine in its class; and segment-first technologies including Evasive Steering Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go and Lane Centring.
The all-new Edge ST features the most powerful V6 engine available in its class, with a specially tuned 2.7-litre twin-turbocharged EcoBoost engine delivering 335 horsepower (340PS) and 380 lb/ft (515 Nm) of torque. A quick-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission and ST-tuned sport suspension support dynamic handling. A new Sport Mode allows Edge ST drivers to experience more aggressive throttle response and shifting patterns and a more resonant exhaust tone. “Edge ST puts a new animal on the road – a performance SUV with a track mentality,” said Hau Thai-Tang, executive vice president of Product Development and Purchasing. “From a performance standpoint, and with its SUV silhouette and versatility, it sets a new standard Edge fans will love to drive.” Edge ST features new front and rear styling, a wide mesh grille for optimal cooling, deep side skirts and dual-exhaust outlets. Unique 21-inch wheels are available and the interior features a redesigned centre console with an all-new rotary gearshift dial that frees up space, allows easier access to the wireless charging pad and enhances the vehicle’s modern, sophisticated feel. The new Edge comes as standard for Ford customers in the U.S. with more driver-assist technology than any other midsize SUV, and introduces first-for-Ford and first-in-segment features, including:
Post-Collision Braking: Helps reduce the impact of a potential secondary collision by automatically applying moderate brake pressure when an initial collision event is detected; slowing the vehicle can potentially lessen injury to occupants and damage to the vehicle
Evasive Steering Assist: Helps drivers steer around stopped or slower vehicles to help avoid collisions. Designed to operate at city and highway speeds, it uses radar and a camera to detect slower-moving and stationary vehicles ahead and provides steering support to enable drivers to manoeuvre around a vehicle if a collision is imminent
Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go and Lane Centring: Helps the vehicle maintain a comfortable driving distance from vehicles ahead and helps reduce stress during long, light-traffic road trips by helping keep the vehicle centred in its lane
Further features include 180-degree front and rear cameras, Enhanced Active Park Assist and a 12speaker B&O PLAY™ Premium Audio System by HARMAN – specially tuned for Edge.
