Revisiting The 2019 Ford Edge ST Confirms It Is Perfect For A Fast Getaway
To the left the waves crash loudly on the shores of Malibu, California, as the Ford Performance Blue SUV smoothly navigates the curves and the traffic. Your scribe hears a familiar exhaust note to the right. A quick glance reveals a modern Mustang of the S550 variety. Obviously modded and driven by a young gent, this fellow Ford is more overt about its performance, but knowing the capabilities of the Edge ST elicits a knowing smile.
“Edge ST puts a new animal on the road — a performance SUV with a track mentality,” said Hau Thai-Tang, executive vice president of Product Development and Purchasing. “From a performance standpoint, and with its SUV silhouette and versatility, it sets a new standard Edge fans will love to drive.”
Sure Ford Performance’s first foray into the sport utility segment isn’t going to overpower a Mustang, but up in those canyon roads above the beach it will certainly hold its own. The 2019 Edge ST walks a thin line between the daily driver that can run errands and handle the school car line during the week, but let you cut loose and drive it fast on the weekends.
