2020 Ford Edge ST-Line Adds Sizzle Without Steak
To help make the Ford Edge more appealing, the company is adding a new ST-Line version to the SUV’s lineup. Essentially, the new Ford Edge ST-Line has the sportier look of the twin-turbocharged Edge ST but none of that specially-tuned version’s impressive performance.
Priced at $38,100, the Edge ST-Line costs the same as the existing Titanium version of the SUV – and $5,165 less than the Edge ST. Compared to the Titanium, however, the ST-Line swaps out the shiny exterior bits for a blacked-out appearance. Highlights include black 20-inch alloy wheels, a black honeycomb mesh grille, black roof rack rails, black window surrounds, and dark headlamp bezels. A special “ST-Line” emblem on the front fenders will help admirers understand what they’re seeing.
Inside, red exposed stitching on the standard heated steering wheel and metallic pedals express the ST-Line’s sporting intentions. The heated front seats feature Ford’s ActiveX simulated leather with Miko simulated suede inserts and offer 10-way power adjustment for the driver and 6-way power adjustment for the passenger.
Under the hood, Ford equips the ST-Line with the Edge’s standard turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine good for 250 horsepower rather than the ST’s twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter V-6 that makes 335 hp. An 8-speed automatic transmission will deliver the power to the front wheels, and all-wheel-drive is an option.
In addition to AWD, options include extra-cost paint colors, towing equipment, Ford Co-Pilot360 Assist+ safety systems, a panoramic glass sunroof, and a dual-screen rear entertainment system.
The 2020 Ford Edge ST-Line arrives in dealerships this summer.
