If you need more edge – and speed – for your Ford Edge, Steeda could have the package for you. Called the Steeda Edge Sport, it is claimed to be "the perfect answer to those that want to have it all." And by "all," the tuner apparently means an eight-piece body kit, brushed-look interior trim and cross-stitching on custom leather, smoked head- and taillight trim, and 22-inch polished aluminum wheels.

Under those double-dubs lurk Brembo's six-piston Big Brake kit, and under the rear bumper you'll find a Magnaflow cat-back exhaust and a Steeda custom trailer hitch cover. Steeda has yet to release any power figures, but there figures to be a bump of some sort considering that under the hood resides a cold-air intake and cool-tube, a new throttle-body spacer, and an ECU tune. You can read the rest of the details in the press release after the jump.

      The grille being color to part of the car reminds me of a custom Ford Escape at Pearson Ford. That Edge looks incredible. Hats off to Steeda.
      • 5 Years Ago
      I really like the painted grill as well.

      chrome is a personal taste. I hate the 3 bar chrome grill. I think it looks much better in the black chrome. Now, if they could make those wheels gun metal gray, i would be sold.

      Luv my Edge.

      But, man, the road noise those 22's must transmit.....
      • 5 Years Ago
      Wow, the Edge grille looks much better painted, and the wide stripe effect is nice. Other than the moronic Steeda graphics across the windshield, that looks very cool.

      The Ford Edge is one of the best looking SUV's out there IMO.

        This looks good, but the base Edge is beyond fugly and is no where near the best looking suv ever made.......................IMO.

      Someone call Ford and tell them THIS is what the Edge 'Sport' should have been...rather than the limp-wristed joke we have instead.

        The Edge would NEVER be this from factory...so just forget that call to Ford.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Well...it's not like Ford has a single brain cell working to produce the right vehicle the first time.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Sexy. But since Ford can't, why won't a tuner add in Xenons to their package?!
      • 5 Years Ago
      Wow- I like it. Very out of the ordinary.
      • 5 Years Ago
      I can't wait till the Edge gets the 3.5 EcoBoost...but I still haven't figured out how to explain to my wife that we need to trade the MDX for it.....
        • 5 Years Ago
        You don't have long to wait, so better get working on that story...
      • 5 Years Ago
      I think the decal/painting of the 3-bar grill actually looks quite good. Maybe this should be a dealer option. A gun-metal or matte black would look great with a lot of the colors.
        • 5 Years Ago
        It also looks great on the Escape, surprisingly. Really reduces blinding from sun's reflection.
      • 5 Years Ago
      I'm sure I'm not the only one that had no idea what "Cool Tube Technology" meant. I figured with a fancy name like that it must be something big. Maybe they're using the AC system to cool down a charge of air for quick bursts of power or something, right? Well, I looked it up. No. It is not impressive or innovative in any way. The intake has some insulation on it. That's it.

      I hate marketers.
