Ford Edge ST with 335 horsepower set for Detroit Auto Show reveal

The move will secure existing jobs at the plant but is not expected to create any new ones

Further performance tweaks have been made in the shape of ST-tuned suspension and the inclusion of a new sport mode, which sharpens the throttle response, gearbox and delivers greater engine braking. That's right, a hot SUV with a sprinkling of Ford Performance magic is coming. Four new body colors and an equal number of new wheel choices ensure that customers can differentiate their Edges from the rest easily, all the while standard LED headlamps as well as LED taillights and optional LED fog lights add a touch of newness and ensure that there's no confusing this with a auto from yesteryear at night.

Performance figures are yet to be finalised, though it's expected the Edge ST will better the 6.2-second 0-60mph (0-96km/h) acceleration time of the Edge Sport.

Ford Australia has confirmed that non-ST versions of the SUV will be making their way to Australia, as a long awaited Territory replacement, though the model will be called "Endura" for our market, as Toyota owns local rights to the Edge name.

But, while Australia won't get the Edge ST (Endura ST?) or any other petrol variant, we can expect our local models to wear the same styling worn by the sub-ST models shown in this article's gallery.

Visually, the ST is marked out by 21-inch alloy wheels, deeper front and rear bumpers plus a dual-exhaust setup. The hood has been redesigned to feature a "layering" effect, and non-STs get four chrome grillebars to add visual width.

Stephanie Brinley, senior analyst at IHS Markit, said the exterior design and technology updates on the Edge are notable and important to consumers. (373 Nm) of torque, mated to the 8-speed automatic with stop/start.

The Edge is built at Ford's Oakville Assembly Plant in Oakville, ON, Canada. Edge models will come standard with FordPass Connect, a WiFi hotspot that can connect up to 10 devices.

There's also available adaptive cruise-control and lane-centering features. The updated Edge line will also have post-collision braking, a technology that prevents the auto from moving after a collision, reducing the potential for a secondary crash.

A 12-speaker B&O PLAY Premium Audio system by Harman Kardon is available.

The Edge is a steady seller for Ford. But in the Ford lineup, the Edge has the highest percentage of female buyers.

Ford recently announced it has reallocated $7 billion of research & development capital from cars to SUVs and trucks.

This is the 2019 Ford Edge ST.
