The Edge ST is the first SUV from the Ford Performance division.

For example, the Blue Oval has made a decision to showcase there - in front of the worldwide audience of the North American International Auto Show - the updated Ford Edge midsize SUV, complete with the all-new introduction of the ST version. The Blue Oval automaker isn't saying what it'll do, but the Edge Sport could dispatch 0-60 times in about 5.7 seconds and run the quarter-mile in 14.3, and you can expect to see the new Edge ST better those numbers.

The Edge ST has performance suspension, a sport-tuned 2.7-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost engine that offers 335 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque. The V6 is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive is standard.

The 2019 Ford Edge ST will also feature a whole host of advanced safety technology, and along with the rest of the refreshed lineup it will be appearing in showrooms from the summer of this year.

The reign of the sedan is over-mowed down by the fuel-sipping Escapes and EcoBoost-powered Expeditions-and it's for that reason that Ford chose to funnel its R&D money into the all-new Edge crossover. It's the first Ford crossover to boast some serious performance tweaks, so here's a sneak peek. The ST model gets some more heavily bolstered seats and unique leather patterns with silver seat stitching, along with different sill plates, a unique gauge cluster and an ST-branded steering wheel.

Ford's also outfitted the updated SUV with a wireless charging pad and an available 12-speaker B&O Play premium audio system. Ford has also announced an ST version of the Edge, and the specs suggest it'll bother many hot hatches.

We want to like the all-new, 2019 Ford Edge ST - we really do.

The new Edge - including all-new Edge ST - is Ford's smartest SUV ever, and every model comes standard with more driver-assist technology than any other midsize SUV.

The new 2019 Ford Edge gets Post-Collision Braking along with Evasive Steering Assists and Adaptive Cruise Control, with lane-keeping and stop-and-go capability.

These add to the existing forward collision warning, autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring, cross-traffic alert, lane-departure warning, lane-keep assist, high-beam assist, hill-start assist and reversing camera.

The auto also has an embedded modem and Wi-Fi, able to fire up a hot spot with a 50-foot range, allowing up to 10 devices to connect to it. The eight-speed auto should give the computer more options for channeling power through the standard AWD system. Drivers can also upgrade to SYNC 3 with an 8-inch touchscreen for enhanced in-vehicle experience.
