The Edge ST is the first utility vehicle from Ford Performance. While there are only minor changes in 2020 -- like dual zone electronic automatic climate control now standard on all trims, the 2019 revisions included dropping the Sport trim in favor of the ST designation and debuting a new 8-speed automatic transmission with a rotary dial electronic gear shifter. Edge is flush with driver assist technologies, including post-impact braking, blind spot information system, and lane keeping assist. During a week-long 2020 Edge ST test drive, the midsize utility vehicle emphasized its high-performing nature with brisk acceleration and swift braking; rider comfort enhanced that underlying sporty attitude. Edge is offered in four trims: SE, SEL, Titanium, and ST.
Powering the Edge ST is a 2.7-liter EcoBoost twin-turbocharged V6 releasing 335 horsepower at 5500 rpm and 380 pounds-feet of torque at 3000 rpm. (Edge SE, SEL, and Titanium are powered by a 2.0-liter EcoBoost turbocharged 4-cylinder producing 250 horsepower at 5500 rpm and 275 pounds-feet of torque at 3000 rpm.) The two-row Edge provides 42.6 inches of front legroom and 40.6 inches of rear legroom. There is ample stow space with 73.4 cubic feet behind the front seats and 39.2 cubic feet behind the rear 60/40 fold-flat bench seat. The 112.2-inch wheelbase 2020 Ford Edge ST with standard intelligent all wheel drive and AWD disconnect collects estimated mpg of 19 city/26 highway and carries an MSRP of $43,265.
