2019 Ford Edge ST SUVFeb 20th, 2019
There are powerful SUVs and then there is the 2019 Ford Edge ST. This high-end vehicle is the very first Ford SUV to be designed by the legendary Ford Performance Team. According to the Executive VP of Product Development and Purchasing, Hau Thai-Tang, the 2019 Ford Edge ST is “a performance SUV with a track mentality.” As the leading Ford dealer in Port Alberni, BC, Van Isle Ford Sales thinks that once you learn more about the 2019 Ford Edge ST you’ll want to get behind the wheel ASAP.
When the Ford Performance Team takes on a project, you know power is going to be at the top of its to-do-list. The 2019 Ford Edge ST delivers with a specially tuned 2.7-litre EcoBoost twin-turbocharged engine that kicks out an impressive 335 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 380 lb.-ft. of torque at 3,250 rpm. Despite being an SUV, the Ford Edge ST handles like a sports car thanks to the Ford Performance Tuned suspension and intelligent all-wheel drive. The all-new rotary gearshift is planted in the redesigned centre console and controls an eight-speed automatic transmission that gets you as low as 9.2 L/100km in highway fuel efficiency. Some of the other performance highlights available to drivers include Active Grille Shutters, Curve Control, dual-exhaust outlets, Class II Trailer Tow Package with Trailer Sway Control, and 21-inch premium gloss black-painted aluminum wheels.
The highly intelligent 2019 Ford Edge ST is safer than almost any SUV on the road today. The standard Ford Co-Pilot 360 driver-assist features make driving easier and safer and include Post-Collision Braking, Evasive Steering Assist, and Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go and Lane Centering. There is also a ton of other standard and optional protection features on the 2019 Ford Edge such as:
- Forward Collision Warning and Dynamic Brake Support
- Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection
- BLIS with Cross-Traffic Alert
- Lane-Keeping Alert and Assist
- 911 Assist
- Rain-sensing wipers
- Rear view camera
- Innovative active glove box knee airbag front and rear ultrasonic sensors
Luxury and Connectivity
Because it’s the top of the line, the 2019 Ford Edge ST is awash in the latest luxury and hi-tech features. If you’re worried about keeping your smartphone charged, there is an available wireless charging pad. For those who demand the best audio quality, never fear because you can add the 12-speaker B&O Sounds System by Bang & Olufsen with SiriusXM radio. To make sure everyone stays comfortable, the Ford Edge ST can be equipped with heated and cooled front seats, second-row reclining 60/40 fold-down seats with center fold-down armrest, 10-Way power front passenger seat, and second-row Easyfold Remote Seat Release.
