Ford Edge SUV Facelift REVEALED ahead of Detroit debut

Ford Edge SUV Facelift REVEALED ahead of Detroit debut

"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.

Of all the adjective and verb-laden names in Ford's SUV lineup, Edge stands as the lifestyle player, dedicated to those who can spend their time and money on themselves rather than on raising a family. Until now. The ST adds nearly 100 horsepower and 110 pound-feet of torque with Ford's 2.7-liter EcoBoost turbo V6 (335 hp, 380 lb-ft), which the company characterizes as the most potent in this class.

All wheel-drive is standard on the ST and gets help from a water-cooled transfer unit in order to help horsepower and all 380 lb-ft of torque find the grippiest tire. Paddle shifters are included standard, and when in Sport mode they'll be handy as the automatic gearbox calibration will hold gears at redline during cornering manoeuvres to avoid unwanted upshifts.

Distinguishable from its lesser-powered brethren, you'll spot a wider grille, deeper side skirts and dual exhausts.

The brakes are now part of a group of standard features for safety on the Edge, said Ford, including technology that helps to detect objects as well as pedestrians and help prevent collisions by braking and steering automatically for drivers.

The Edge ST goes on sale this summer, but Ford hasn't revealed its price yet.

Manchester United hit back at Sevilla as ticket row continues
The move comes after extensive talks between both clubs failed to see them reach a compromise or bring ticket prices down. The Spanish club claims United have not offered their fans enough tickets for the second leg in March.

In recent years, Ford has rolled out a variety of performance variants on the passenger auto side, such as the tire squealing Focus ST. 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 tuned the Edge ST to compensate for its high ride by "managing the all-wheel drive system and electronically creating a little bit of sportiness without getting ourselves into any issues on the center of gravity", Nair said.

On the technology front, all buyers will get wireless smartphone charging, a Wi-Fi hotspot and the Ford Pass app, which allows owners to start, lock/unlock and locate their Edge.

Ford has whipped the covers off its Territory-replacing Endura due in the fourth quarter, with the large SUV making its debut this week as the facelifted Edge sold in overseas markets. The engine is paired with an eight-speed automatic.

SYNC with AppLinkTM, an enhanced voice-recognition communications and entertainment system, is also standard.

Compared to the Edge Sport, the ST gains the option of a more focused performance brake package, along with ST-tuned sports suspension. An embedded modem will provide WiFi to up to 10 devices and can stay connected to around 50 feet away.
