That's right, a hot SUV with a sprinkling of Ford Performance magic is coming.
With SUVs now dominating the USA sales charts it's no surprise manufacturers are filling in the white spaces with new models, options and features.
The move toward ST could signal a sea change for Ford Performance.
Part of those special touches are ST badges and Ford Performance sill plates. Expect the new model to reach UAE, KSA and other GCC markets by early next year. It comes packing a 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine that pushes out 335 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque. An embedded modem comes standard on all 2019 Ford Edge models, meaning it gets onboard 4G LTE access and a built-in mobile WiFi hotspot that can support up to ten devices. All Edge STs will come with all-wheel drive and the same eight-speed automatic as regular versions. The new ST takes over as the flagship version from the Sport trim, arriving with its own design and performance credentials. "From a performance standpoint, and with its SUV silhouette and versatility, it sets a new standard Edge fans will love to drive".
The ST delivers more than just raw horsepower. Ford also included a Sport mode, which is created to deliver optimal transmission and engine performance. As a result, the Edge ST is easily the sportiest of the packages we have seen for Ford's popular mid-sized SUV, allowing it to stand out from the rest of the massive crowd in that segment.

Warlords of great families follow suit, forming a fragile coalition in a bid to challenge Dong Zhuo's remorseless rule. Total War: Three Kingdoms has been announced, and it will be set during the Han Dynasty.
The ST isn't meant to be a track vehicle.
Ford will unveil its new 2019 Edge ST crossover SUV at the Detroit Auto Show next week. The grille is taller, wider, and deeper than that on the outgoing crossover, although it doesn't look disproportionately huge thanks to the fact that there's now some separation between it and the headlamps.
On the outside, the Edge ST features a unique front fascia that bears a striking resemblance to the ST-brand cars.
The Ford Edge is selling well, and Ford understands what makes it such a hit. That includes improved performance and fuel economy with even the stock 2.0-liter base engine.
The crossover - which has a strong following among women who prefer it to traditional minivans - now gets a suite of standard-issue driver assistance technologies, such as forward collision warning.
The Edge, which will be on sale starting this summer, is offering new safety features that are optional including a cruise control system with sophisticated options, and an automatic steering assist that helps to avoid possible crashes. However, it's not clear how much of that technology will make it on to United Kingdom versions of the Edge. You also get better brakes.
