2019 Ford Edge ST To Start From $43,350, On Sale This Summer

Ford managed to take petrol heads by surprise earlier this year, when they decided to use the ‘ST’ badge on their Edge SUV.

Now, half a year later, the Ford Edge ST is getting ready to go on sale across the United States, with CarsDirect reporting a starting price of $43,350.

Compared to the 2018 Ford Edge Sport, which could be had from $41,765, the 2019 Ford Edge ST is $1,585 more expensive. The premium is justified by the distinctive look, which includes dual exhaust pipes and 21-inch rims, and, of course, the upgraded performance and stopping power.

The twin-turbo 2.7-liter V6 engine of the Sport model works together with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The unit channels 335 horsepower (340PS / 250kW) and 380 pound-feet (515Nm) of torque to both axles, or 20hp (20PS / 15kW) and 30lb-ft (41Nm) of torque more than its lesser sibling.

The price is, of course, for the base model. Thus, playing with the options list can make the Ford Edge ST cost quite a few extra pennies, as the Performance Brake Package, which is tipped to arrive later on, will cost another $2,695.

Moreover, adding this to your Edge ST requires the upgraded Equipment Group, which costs another $5,585, and benefits from heated and cooled front seats, panoramic roof, navigation system, 180-degree front camera, and more.

Therefore, a fully loaded Ford Edge ST could cost in excess of $51,500, which is some $3,000 less than the base 2018 Audi SQ5.

    What exactly makes this worth $40,000+?

    • Mr. EP9

      Not sure. For that money you get

      >20 extra horsepower
      >30 extra lb feet of torque
      >21 inch wheels
      >Dual exhaust pipes
      >Upgraded brakes
      >Upgraded Suspension
      >Exterior trim bits.

      Doesn’t sound like it’s worth $41k plus given what else you could get out there for that money but it’s only $1500 more over the Edge Sport unless you got for the other options in which case that’s like an additional $8k.

        My current Sport has 21″ rims, square dual exhaust coming through the lower rear valence. The vehicle is quick for it’s weight. You get a lot of options at $41,000. I shopped several competitors and they all are expensive. The average transaction price for purchasing a new vehicle is around $35,000..Add options and your over $40,000+

      If you have to ask, you wouldn’t understand.

        I understand that its a boring overpriced crossover…

        • Rocket

          Crossovers are boring by nature. If you have to have one, why not get one that moves?

    • Spyder Hole Fantome

      Ford’s been out they dam mind regarding pricing for years now.

  • Rocket

    The Edge Sport was already a stellar performer for a grocery getter/daily driver. The ST should be even better. But did they ruin the ride?

  • Yishay

    I’m sorry, I couldn’t bring my self to pay over $25,000 for a Ford Edge. I mean, it’s nice and has good looks but so does an x3 and a Q5 at a $40,000 price.

    • Spyder Hole Fantome

      Bingo! I agree.

    • MarketAndChurch

      That’s Ford’s value proposition. The X3 and Q5 both have 100 less hp, and you have to pay 10,000 or more to get an X3 or Q5 with the same hp as the Ford.

      • Rocket

        The BMW and Audi are also considerably smaller.

      • Yishay

        Honestly, if you’re a horse power fanatic, you’re not looking to buy an edge, x3 or Q5. I have a Q5 and I dint buy it for power and speed, I bought it for reliability and versatility in hauling stuff like bikes, groceries and small pieces of furniture.

        • Bullitt2605

          You bought an Audi for reliability? Really? Are you sure? Keep it for a couple of years after it’s warranty runs out and get back to me. Oh and while it’s nice to be on a first name basis with some people, your service adviser is not one of them.

    This crate has been around far too long without a major redesign. Touching up cosmetics isn’t going to hack it.

  • Harry_Wild

    Old model! For another $10K; wait for the new Explorer ST model in late 2018 or early 2019! Who would buy such a dated model with the old looking dash layout?

    • Don

      I always ask have you driven the Edge Sport? I own a new one fully loaded and it was purchased $8000 below MSRP. The performance and handling is strong. It’s roomy, comfortable and has every tech feature Ford is currently offering including 21″wheels, vista roof, heat/cooled seats. I had not planned on purchasing an Edge, but after driving several competitors. The Edge Sport won hands down. It’s hard to judge a vehicle unless you test drive it. The same applies to the Edge. I did not like the other models and power trains until driving the Sport. I feel the Sport is head and shoulders above the other models. It will be interesting test driving the ST to compare.

  • Juan Alvarez

    Have a friend who owns one of these, and its pure junk.

    • Steve McQueen

      That’s pretty impressive considering they’re not for sale yet. Is your friend a time traveler?

    • Bullitt2605

      Juana bet you don’t have a friend.

    • Don

      I just purchased my second new Edge. The first had over 170000 miles when traded for a new Sport. Never an issue, just regular maintenance. I’m very pleased.

  • Steve McQueen

    Performance brake package? For all those times you’ll be flogging your Edge on the road course…?

  • Bullitt2605

    I agree on the price with options but not on the quality and handling dynamics. I know quite a few ex Audi owners that said their interiors fell apart after a few years. I have a 2017 Explorer Sport and may be there is a $60k BMW or Audi that handles better but not $15K better.

  • B Cuz

    FoMo has priced their products too high. Not in tough with cost of living.

  • Yishay

    Well and good, but at the end of the day when you are ready to trade in your car, you’re gonna a whole lot more for the bmw and Audi than you’re gonna get for the Ford Edge.

    • Bullitt2605

      Not! The market it flooded with 2 to 3 year old BMW’s and Audi’s off lease that people don’t want to own after the warranty runs out. In fact I just did a quick search and used 2015 – 2016 Edge and X3 prices are pretty damn close. Lowest BMW 22k, lowest Edge 22k. Highest BMW 34k, highest Edge 32k. That was just a quick search and I didn’t compare options but given that if you added any options at all to your BMW or Audi you paid more than a similarly equipped Ford.

      • Yishay

        I’ve had a bmw so I can agree with you there, but my Audi has stood the test of time.
