2019 Ford Edge New Design Release Date And Concept – 2019 Ford Edge New Design

The 2019 Ford Edge ST is absolutely quicker than its added banal stablemates, but it lacks the raw achievement capabilities of its smaller, added acclaimed cousins, the Focus ST and the Fiesta ST. As a more-exciting-than-stock ancestors car, it does aloof fine, alike if the allurement amount is a little stiff.

(Full disclosure: Ford loaned me a fully-fueled Edge ST for this review.)

As far as crossovers go, the Ford Edge is a appealing acceptable one. That’s because it’s boxlike like a base wagon, but not aggrandized like an Explorer. Granted, I’ve alone activated Explorers up to the 2019 archetypal year. The new bearing adeptness be better, so I’ll assets acumen until I’ve spent some time with it. Ford’s ST appellation has, until now, meant “fast,” but don’t let the moniker fool you into assertive Dejected Oval engineers (or, added likely, artefact folks) accept created a beef crossover.

Aside from a bland ride and humble styling, the best asset the Edge–any Edge, not aloof the ST–puts alternating breadth parents are anxious is burden space. A three-row crossover it is not, but that works to its benefit, because the burden amplitude abaft the rear seats is cavernous. And now that it’s attic application visiting, anniversary arcade and abode activity season, that could appear in accessible for any modestly-sized one or two-child family.

In agreement of its footprint, the Edge is not a decidedly ample vehicle. It’s beneath than 16 anxiety long, a little over 6 anxiety advanced and at 5’8″ tall, it’s an inch beneath than the boilerplate American male. But its appearance is angular by avant-garde standards, which translates into a lot of accessible autogenous space. Parents, rejoice.

The advanced seats are ample and able if a bit close and the aback bench is big abundant to fit assorted inferior astronaut chairs (a.k.a. adolescent assurance seats). The rear aperture openings are ample abundant to calmly get askew breed in and out aback you’re aggravating to actuality them into a car bench with a bag or two of advantage on one arm. Unlike some added cartage addition absorbed in the Edge adeptness consider, like the Kia Sorrento, GMC Acadia, Honda Pilot, and Dodge Durango, the Edge isn’t accessible with a third row. But for abate families, that’s aloof fine, and as I mentioned, translates to added burden aggregate abaft the two rows of seats you do get.

Cargo breadth abaft the Edge’s rear seats is acceptable at aloof over 39 cubic feet. That expands to 73.4 cubic anxiety with the aback seats bankrupt flat, authoritative it one of the added abundant crossovers in its class. Both the Chevrolet Blazer (which will be accessible in an extended, three-row adaptation in 2020) and the Hyundai Santa Fe (which can already be had with one) action beneath burden amplitude than the Edge.

It may not be credible aback examination the Edge in profile–its rear division windows are tiny–but its amount attic is large, authoritative it accessible to amount in non-stackable items like bedfast strollers and big grocery hauls. Also, pumpkins, which would abatement out of a small-floored, high-roofed crossover as anon as you opened the rear hatch.

My son is alone a year and a bisected old, but I’ve already attempted to acquaint him to the apple of adumbration and modesty. The Edge is a acceptable busline belvedere for such a lesson, decidedly in its interior. The ST’s berth artful isn’t tautly spartan in the way a Volkswagen’s is. But it is unpretentious, with some well-placed upholstery bond and aluminum aperture bezels to accommodate an air of basal affection after dipping into ostentation. Junior, booty note: simple is good.

Inside the Edge, the capital check is the architecture of the LATCH adolescent assurance bench anchors. They’re those cushion-embedded metal loops I’m abiding parents everywhere accept developed to hate. Once you get acclimated to them, they’re OK, but every time you accept to re-clip the bench straps, an awkward angry bout ensues that, at atomic in my case, best acceptable after-effects in furthering junior’s apprenticeship in the use of dejected language.

If you’re adorable at the ST adaptation of the Ford Edge, there’s a acceptable adventitious you accept some apprehension of an agitative alive experience. After all, Ford’s ST bandage has coughed up some of the added acute hot hatches on the market. But the addition of the ST nameplate into the crossover branch avalanche abbreviate of the achievement cred for which ST has ahead been known. The Edge ST is absolutely added able than its Edge Sport antecedent and of advance it’s added advancing than added trim levels in the Edge line. But don’t apprehend a Focus ST ambience dispatch and administration from a 4,477-pound crossover, and what is about a warmed-up adaptation of the plain-Jane Edge.

Its bendable abeyance and accustomed alley amenities aside, the Edge ST is alive for a crossover of its admeasurement and weight, attributable to a 335-horsepower 2.7-liter twin-turbo V6. The engine’s abounding 380 lb-ft of torque comes on at 3,000 rpm, almost low in the adeptness band, authoritative for able pulls abroad from stop signs, cartage lights and the like. If your analogue of “safety” includes actuality able to rocket assimilate the freeway with abundant hustle to catechumen the headlights of abutting cartage into crumbling pinpoints of light, well, you’re absolutely center there in the Edge ST. It had the adeptness to accomplish my son cackle from his car bench and my wife admonish me about alive irresponsibly, so there’s that.

Handling is a little soft. I’d alike cartel to say not aces of ST badging, but acceptable for addition whose primary apropos are beneath focused on shuckin’ and jivin’ and added so on shuttling baby cautiously to and from academy and activities.

In general, spongey-ish administration a softer ride makes. Braking was analogously ho-hum–not the actuality of a achievement car (not nearly), but abundant to get the job done beneath the alive altitude to which best parents are subjected.

Fuel abridgement is anticipated for a 335-horsepower agent with a barrier weight of about 4,500 pounds… so-so. The EPA appraisement is 19 mpg city, 26 artery with a accumulated boilerplate of 21 mpg. In added words, it’s on par with added crossovers in its class. In the absolute world, in which an ST brand and a twin-turbo comminute accountable me to columnist my appropriate bottom a little harder to the attic on a approved basis, my boilerplate hovered beneath 20 mpg in alloyed burghal and artery driving. A added bourgeois alive appearance would acceptable crop added thrifty numbers, but why pay added for ST action alone to drive it like a Prius?

The Insurance Institute for Artery Assurance (IIHS) gave the Edge top marks in all of its blast tests and in its appraisal of alive assurance features. But it gave a “Poor” appraisement to the lights and aloof an “Acceptable” appraisement to the LATCH anchors. As I mentioned earlier, the LATCH anchors aren’t the easiest blazon to use. (The accessible ones usually accept a little artificial admission aperture that flips out of the way to acknowledge unshrouded LATCH loops.) The Edge has a best (out of five) assurance appraisement from the federal government, with best marks in all blast testing categories besides rollover, in which it got four stars.

On the surface, the Ford Edge ST is a altogether able ancestors car that hauls ass with a birr added aggressiveness than best in that category. It’ll abscond to 60 mph in beneath than six abnormal while acceptable the banal demands of the accomplished antecedent with ease–roomy aback seat, affluence of burden space, center appropriate ammunition economy.

Where the ST adaptation avalanche flat, though, is in agreement of price. At about $50,000, the one I activated was absolutely in BMW X3 and Audi Q5 territory. Those are cartage with administration and resale ethics buyers may acquisition added attractive. For not abundant more, you could get into a similarly-optioned X3 xDrive30i that will booty a few fractions of a additional best to get to 60 but will apparently handle better. The Bimmer doesn’t accept as abundant burden amplitude as the Edge, but it’s a little added fun to drive and has a abundant added able interior.

The Edge ST isn’t bad, but I can’t brainstorm advantageous affluence car money for a gussied-up Ford crossover. This agent aloof doesn’t accept the chaw or adorableness to angle out, which it absolutely needs in such a awash articulation of cars. But maybe it will acquisition its alcove of buyers, though. Added importantly, it’s an absorbing anniversary for Ford’s ST bandage and what that will attending like in the future. The Explorer ST is already advancing anon for 2020, and of course, the Focus and Fiesta accept been sunsetted.
