The Ford Edge ST is Ford’s first crossover to bear The Blue Oval brand’s performance-oriented ST badge, and that means it comes decked out with a number of extras to back its claims to sporting greatness. Highlights include upgrades like an ST-specific suspension set-up that sharpens the midsize crossover’s handling, plus the option for a performance braking package to haul it down. In addition to the hard bits under the skin, the Ford Edge ST also gets a variety of exterior styling changes that give it that extra pizzazz as the rest of Ford’s ST performance lineup. Let’s take a closer look at the Ford Edge ST in our live photo gallery.
Starting up front, we find the 2019 Ford Edge ST offers a unique front fascia treatment, highlighted by a wide, glossy black mesh grille, complete with an ST logo. Ford points out that this isn’t solely for aesthetic purposes – the larger intake size also helps to keep the engine cooler.
In the upper corners of the front fascia, there are automatic high-beam headlamps, with LED lighting offered as an available option. The lower fascia also gets a unique treatment compared to non-ST Ford Edge models. LED fog lamps are equipped as standard.
Moving to the profile, the first big upgrade are standard the 20-inch Bright-Machined Aluminum wheels with High Gloss Black-Painted Pockets. The model seen here is wearing even-bigger 21-inch Premium Gloss-Black Painted Aluminum wheel, which are optional. Between the rollers are deep side skirts, which Ford claims work to improve the crossover’s overall aerodynamics.
Standard power sideview mirrors with integrated LED turn signals and body-colored mirror caps punctuate the window line, while body-colored door handles and standard black beltline molding finish it off.
At the rear, the 2019 Ford Edge ST sports unique dual exhaust pipes housed in an equally unique lower rear fascia. There’s also a body-color rear spoiler and LED tail lamps. A Reverse Sensing System is included as standard equipment.
For reference, the 2019 Ford Edge ST is powered by the same twin-turbo 2.7L V6 as the 2018 Ford Edge Sport, but with an additional 20 horsepower (335 horsepower) and 30 pound-feet of torque (380 pound-feet) on tap.
