The current Edge ST is brand-new and it arrived a couple of months ago. The famous ST trim is a replacement for the previous Sport trim level. The 2020 Ford Edge ST will arrive later this year and it will introduce some modest changes and upgrades.
Edge ST is actually Blue Oval’s first high-performance SUV. It rides on a powerful turbocharged V6 and it also benefits from the tuned suspension. The exterior design offers a striking appearance with the gloss black grille. The interior will look extremely modern and it will offer a Ford Co-Pilot 360 technology. If you liked the regular Edge model, Edge ST will look even better.
Ford introduced the Edge ST as a replacement for the Sport trim. The current model is the model that went through a lot of changes, especially from the outside. With that in mind, the 2020 Ford Edge ST will offer minor updates only. However, this SUV looks very sporty and stylish. Modern exterior features and beautiful character lines are providing the premium look. Features such as spoilers, grille, side skirts, and wheels will all remain, which is a good thing.
The highlight of the Edge ST is its gloss black grille up front. According to Blue Oval carmaker, the current grille is providing better airflow by 40% when compared to the previous grille on the Sport model. The detuned suspension provides better driving dynamics and it improves the off-roading experience.
For the start, the 2020 Ford Edge ST isn’t as luxurious as its competitors from Audi or Jaguar. On the other hand, the cabin feels upscale and modern. Most of the features are a carryover from the Sport level and the current Edge ST model. Safety will be improved as Blue Oval is offering a Co-Pilot 360 technology.
On top of that, that means the standard safety aids includes pre-collision assist, blind spot monitoring, cross-traffic alert, and lane-keeping assist. A rear-view camera is also in the offer as standard. There will be room for five passengers, leather seats are available and unchanged for 2020. Premium features such as wireless charging are optional.
Same EcoBoost V6 Engine
Even the regular Edge model is providing plenty of power. Its standard 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine is producing up to 250 horses. However, if you want a real performance than the 2020 Ford Edge ST is the answer. This special version comes with the 2.7-liter V6 turbocharged drivetrain. The EcoBoost unit is delivering 335 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque. 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway are good mileage figures for the segment. All-wheel-drive configuration is offered as standard and this engine will deploy an 8-speed automatic transmission.
2020 Ford Edge ST Price and Release Date
We like the fact the price will stay intact. That means the upcoming 2020 Ford Edge ST will cost $42,500. It makes perfect sense for the price to remain as the upgrades for 2020 are very minor. The 2020 Edge ST will hit the markets in the last quarter of 2019.
