Ford Refreshes 2019 Edge, Launches 335-HP ST Model

The brakes are part of a suite of standard safety features on the new Edge, Ford said, including technology that detects objects and pedestrians and can prevent collisions by automatically braking and steering for the driver. The 2019 Edge represents a paradigm shift for Ford because for the first time ever, there's an ST model available to tackle the track after dropping the kiddos off at school-proving that yes, even the most outlandish wants and needs of the consumer have fully migrated to the SUV platform. It features a souped-up version of the 2.7-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 from the Edge Sport that pumps out 335 hp and 380 lb-ft (515 Nm) of torque - 20 hp and 30 lb-ft more than the Sport. That is connected to a quicker-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission that routes power to all four wheels.

Beside "confidence", if there was another guiding principle for the design team, it was likely freedom of choice; the 2019 Ford Edge will be available with four new exterior colors and four new wheel designs from launch, while the interior will offer three different palettes. "From a performance standpoint, and with its SUV silhouette and versatility, it sets a new standard Edge fans will love to drive". There's also a unique aero kit including rear spoiler, a diffuser encompassing dual exhausts, and a wide mesh grille for improved cooling. Edge ST will haul five people and comes with more driver assist features than other mid-size SUVs. An embedded Wi-Fi modem capable of supporting 10 devices up to 50 feet (15 m) from the vehicle is standard. Drivers can also upgrade to SYNC 3 with an 8-inch touchscreen for enhanced in-vehicle experience. Standard 2019 Edge SUVs will get a 2.0L EcoBoost engine with 5hp more power and better fuel economy than the outgoing model. (373 Nm) of torque, mated to the 8-speed automatic with stop/start. For 2019 the Edge gains a redesigned centre console with a rotary gear-shift dial a-la Jaguar Land Rover, FordPass Connect as standard with a WiFi hotspot, the availability of wireless phone charging, and the availability of a new 12-speaker Bang & Olufsen Play premium audio system. Well, it seems they took the old Edge Sport and added more goodies.

Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson out for Golden State Warriors vs. LA Clippers
The Warriors blew out the Clippers by 16 on Saturday in Los Angeles with Curry and Thompson available, but without Durant. Wednesday's game should have a drastically different feel with Durant back and the Splash Brothers on the sideline.

Would you like to see the Ford Edge SUV come to the UK?

The usual facelift fodder applies, with the Edge getting a new front end with Ecosport-like grille and new LED headlights, and the back end loses its full-width light cluster which is replaced by new tail lights and a black glass panel in between.
