You’re here to learn all you can about the engine and powertrain features of the all-new performance-enhanced 2019 Ford Edge ST, so let’s get right down to it. The new Ford Edge ST at Akins Ford near Atlanta, GA, features a 2.7-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost engine mated with an 8-speed automatic transmission that itself features all-new Ford Performance-enhanced quick-shifting capabilities. This engine and transmission pairing offers 335 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque. Those impressive power ratings should seem high to you, as they are, in fact, the top power ratings of any V6 engine in the 2019 Ford Edge ST’s class. But that’s not all. The all-new 2019 Edge ST also provides you with a new Sport Mode for an optimized throttle response and enhanced shifting patterns. You’ll get this because the Sport Mode of the performance-enhanced Edge ST holds gears near redline when cornering, offers optimized engine braking, and provides a deeper and clearer exhaust tone that will make you feel like you’re behind the wheel of an all-new Mustang instead of a new Ford SUV. And if you prefer a manual transmission, the steering wheel mounted SelectShift paddle shifters of the all-new 2019 Edge ST allow you to manually shift if and when you so desire.
