The 2019 refresh helped refine an already solid product with improved styling and updated powertrains. The tech and interior are starting to feel dated, though it's still stronger than most competitors.

PARK CITY, Utah — We were expecting rain the entire time we were in Utah. Even after we landed, we had a truncated lunch in order to hit the mountain roads before the weather rolled in. The sun eventually shone through grey skies stretching from Salt Lake City to Park City, lighting a sea of red and yellow leaves resting atop newly paved switchbacks. With the storm looming, we attacked a great stretch of road to push the new 2019 Ford Edge ST hard before the weather turned. The Edge has been revised for 2019, though this isn't an all-new model like Ford would have you believe. Changes include refreshed styling, an updated powertrain, and new standard and optional equipment, building on what was already a strong midsize contender. You can check out our full review of the 2019 Edge right here. Still, the most notable addition for 2019 is the new Ford Performance-tuned Edge ST, a replacement for the Edge Sport and the first crossover to wear an ST badge. In the next year or two, the Fiesta, Focus, Fusion and Taurus will all disappear from our market. That will leave the Mustang as the only car left on Ford lots. With Ford going all-in on crossovers and SUVs in the U.S., it needed a vehicle to carry on the practical-performance image currently embodied by the Fiesta ST and Focus ST and RS. Like the old Edge Sport, the Edge ST is powered by Ford's 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6. Output for 2019 is 335 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque, up 20 horses and 30 pound-feet over the Edge Sport. Power is sent to all four wheels through a new 8-speed automatic with standard paddle shifters. As with the standard Edge, the all-wheel drive system can decouple the rear axle to improve fuel economy — 19 city, 29 highway and 25 combined. The Edge ST hits 60 mph in fewer than 6 seconds, making it slightly quicker than the old Edge Sport and the Focus ST. Top speed is 130 mph. The Edge Sport's twin-tube shocks have been swapped out for firmer monotube units. The steering has more weight and is quicker than before. The $2,695 ST Performance Brake Package adds 13.6-inch front rotors, red brake calipers and black 21-inch wheels with Pirelli P-Zero summer tires, the only other wheel offering. All-season-wrapped 20-inch wheels are standard, though all of our testers had upgraded tire and wheel packages. You're not likely to mistake the Edge ST for the standard model. Ford designers ditched the chrome in favor of gloss-black accents on the grille, bumpers and window trim. The grill uses the same mesh pattern as other ST products. The front bumper has trim that resembles the Shelby GT350 and the rear bumper has squared-off exhaust outlets. Thanks in part to the surprisingly restrained use of ST badges (one in the grille and one on the hatch), the overall design is sharp and handsome. Some of Ford's other crossovers look a bit …
