Pricing wasn't announced, but Ford Performance vehicles that are based on familiar platforms carry a premium.

For example, the Blue Oval has made a decision to showcase there - in front of the worldwide audience of the North American International Auto Show - the updated Ford Edge midsize SUV, complete with the all-new introduction of the ST version.

SPECULATED by Wheels earlier today, Ford Performance has confirmed production of a high-performance ST variant of the Ford Edge SUV. The new 2019 Ford Edge will come equipped with the standard 2-liter engine, offering enhanced performance and fuel economy compared to its predecessor.

First Ford performance SUV model won't be its last. On top of presenting a more aggressive demeanor by a reworked front fascia, a lowered suspension and blacked-out wheels, the Edge ST gets Ford's 2.7-litre, twin-turbo EcoBoost V6. Unique 21-inch wheels are available and you'll find interior design cues on the steering wheel, seat backs and scuff plates to provide a subtle reminder that this five-passenger SUV is something special. Edge owners with a penchant for collecting speeding tickets will surely enjoy feeding that dust to the competition behind the wheel of the Edge ST rather than a lower trim.

Built at the Oakville Assembly Plant in Oakville, Ontario, Canada, the new Ford Edge and all-new Edge ST are due to arrive in showrooms this summer.

To help it stand out from the rest of the 2019 Edge models, the Edge ST features unique front and rear styling with a mesh grille, sportier side skirts and dual-exhaust outlets.

Ford will fit the brakes on its redesigned 2019 Edge midsize crossover vehicle and its new 2019 Ranger midsize pickup, that will compete later this year with the Chevrolet Colorado and Toyota Tacoma.

As expected from Ford, both Edge ST and Edge are gaining some new technology for 2019. And the 2019 Edge adds the latest version of Ford's Sync infotainment system and the Ford Pass Connect package of services.

Using the Edge to bring the ST performance line to Ford's array of crossover-utility vehicles is no surprise.

It's the most powerful engine that Ford's ever fitted in this model - edging out, so to speak, the larger 3.5-liter atmospheric V6 with its 280 hp and 315 lb-ft. "It also has to have a very good balance of vehicle attributes".

Updates for the 2019 Edge include a new look grille as well as new safety technology, including mild autonomous functionality called "adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go and lane centring", as well as post-collision braking and evasive steering assist. That includes: Forward collusion warning and dynamic brake support; pre-collision assist with pedestrian detection; BLIS with cross-traffic alert; lane-keeping alert; lane-keeping assist; auto high beams and hill-start assist.
