Ford's upcoming 2019 Edge ST, which is targeted at performance-oriented midsize crossovers from Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche, will cost about $1,500 more than the outgoing Edge Sport trim it replaces.
The automaker's first crossover to carry a performance badge goes on sale this summer, starting at $43,350, including shipping. It will top out at nearly $52,000, according to a pricing sheet released to dealers and shared with Automotive News. The current Edge Sport trim starts at $41,765.
The Edge ST is part of a freshening that includes slight cosmetic changes to the base model Edge. The ST includes an optional brake package that costs $2,695 and comes with 18-inch disc brakes and 21-inch black aluminum wheels. The brake package is part of a larger equipment group that costs an additional $5,585 and includes Ford's newly branded Co-Pilot360 collection of driver-assist features, heated and cooled seats and hands-free liftgate.
The Edge ST will be powered by a specially tuned 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6 engine that Ford says is the most powerful in the segment, generating 335 hp and 380 pound-feet of torque.
