Ford launches the 2020 Edge ST-Line with a standard engine and sports appearance.
This ‘warm’ version is for those who “want style and value and don’t need all of the horsepower” of the Edge ST’s 2.7-liter, 335-hp (250-kW) EcoBoost V6 engine.
The ST-Line version comes with a familiar standard 2.0-liter EcoBoost 4-cylinder 250 hp (186 kW) mill mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox and front wheel drive.
Exterior tweaks include ST-Line badging and ST’s egg-crate grille, black molding, lower cladding, fog lamps, LED lights, 20-inch wheels, bumpers of the same color as the body.
Ford’s Sync 3 system and wireless charging are standard for the 2020 Edge ST-Line. The Co-Pilot360 driver-assist suite and AWD are optional.
An upgraded ST Performance Brake Package is available as well. Ford says customers can already place orders.
The current prices for the 2020 model are between $31,100 – $43,265. The hot ST is the priciest variant.
The 2020 Ford ST-Line’s cost has not been specified yet, but logically it should be near $38,100 as the Edge Titanium trim.
The 2020 Ford Edge sits in the middle of the midsize SUV class. It has decent engine power with good fuel economy, and a long list of standard features.
Its ride is balanced, and acceleration is peppy, but some drives report of unengaging steering. The infotainment system looks outdated, the seats are roomy but not supportive enough.
