2019 Ford Edge ST Priced From $43,350, Nearly $1,600 More Than The Edge Sport

Ford’s first-ever ST-badged performance crossover – the 2019 Ford Edge ST – is on its way, kicking off a new trend for the American automaker that will be continued by the next-generation Ford Explorer ST, and could involve still other CUV models in the future. But of course, performance doesn’t come cheap, and according to CarsDirect, the 2019 Ford Edge ST will be priced from $43,350 when it arrives this summer – $1,585 more expensive than the outgoing Ford Edge Sport.

Bear in mind: that extra cost is the difference between a moderately sporty crossover developed by Ford’s non-performance engineers, and a bona fide ST model developed with the participation of Ford Performance. It will also net buyers an extra 20 horsepower and 30 lb-ft of torque over the outgoing Edge Sport, which is no small bump. All 335 horsepower/380 lb-ft will be channeled to all four wheels through a brand-new eight-speed automatic, and loads of ST-specific equipment – a specially-tuned suspension, unique 20-inch wheels, dual exhaust, water-cooled AWD transfer unit – will be included in the price.

Pricing for the 2019 Ford Edge ST ought to top out around $52k, CarsDirect says, and sadly, you’ll have to spend about that much in order to get the CUV’s optional ST Performance Brake Package – a must-have for any real performance driving enthusiast. That’s because buyers will have to pay for the $5,585 Equipment Group 401A before they’ll be able to tick the box for the $2,695 brake upgrade, resulting in a final resting MSRP of $51,630.

The ST Performance Brake Package, which won’t be available until some time after launch, is somewhat less-than-aptly named, as it lumps together 21-inch wheels with summer performance tires, a brushless radiator fan, and red-painted calipers with performance pads and vented rotors. Puzzlingly, Equipment Group 401A appears to have absolutely nothing to do with those components, instead delivering creature comforts like heated and cooled front seats, a panoramic sunroof, front-mounted 180-degree camera, Co-Pilot360 Assist+ active safety package, and more.
