Ford has yet to release any performance figures, however.

Well, that soon will change. For the first time since its inception, the Edge will be offered in ST trim, making it the first high-performance crossover sold under the Ford nameplate.

The features for the auto have been explained elaborately and for power, the Edge ST has a 2.7-liter twin-turbo V6 with 335 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque.

Where it differs most from the ST-branded Ford's of the past is in its sole available transmission - a brand-new 8-speed automatic, shared with the rest of the 2019 Edge lineup - and its standard all-wheel-drive. Wheel-mounted paddle shifters are standard on ST.

The Edge ST follows the Fiesta and Focus into ST territory, albeit with a powertrain that wears a "Sport" badge on other models.

An updated version of Ford's king-size family SUV has been revealed at the 2018 Detroit Motor Show.

The Edge ST spearheads the facelifted 2019 Edge lineup, which gets both styling and equipment tweaks.

Those beefed up brakes could come in handy when the ST is dialled up into its new Sport mode, which offers more immediate throttle response. Buyers can add an optional performance brake package. The chief engineer of the Ford Edge, Jonathan Crocker, claims that they have destroyed a lot of race tracks with this monster SUV. It is also mated to the eight-speed automatic, but the transmission gets a special tune and different gear ratios. Ford also included a Sport mode, which is created to deliver optimal transmission and engine performance.

That motor puts out 335hp and 380 lb-ft of torque. A mesh grille, darkened headlights and unique 21-inch wheels highlight the new appearance on the outside.

Inside, technology shifts up too, with optional wireless charging and a standard Wi-Fi hotspot that gives internet access to up to 10 devices.

Edge sales have improved steadily in the competitive and rapidly growing Middle CUV segment in the USA, hitting 142,603 units past year when it was Ford's fastest-growing SUV brand at 6.0%, according to WardsAuto data.

Meanwhile, a new Edge ST is set to appear on the United States market only.

In the US Ford has also improved the standard kit list on the Edge, but it's not yet know if that will be reflected on United Kingdom models. Drivers can also upgrade to SYNC 3 with an 8-inch touchscreen for enhanced in-vehicle experience.

Built at the Oakville Assembly Plant in Oakville, Ontario, Canada, the new Ford Edge and all-new Edge ST are due to arrive in showrooms this summer.
