Ford Endura 2018 revealed ahead of Q4 launch

Ford Endura 2018 revealed ahead of Q4 launch

The SUV is the first from the Ford Performance Team which has been responsible for the Ford GT, Mustang Shelby GT350 and GT350R, F-150 Raptor, Focus RS and ST and Fiesta ST.

The Edge ST has performance suspension, a sport-tuned 2.7-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost engine that offers 335 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque. A new-to-Ford 8-speed transmission and drive-mode-selectable all-wheel drive are standard, with red-caliper performance brakes, 21-in. wheels and summer tires optional.

No pricing details are available at this point for the new Ford Performance Edge ST model, but a 2018 Ford Edge Sport retails for roughly $40,000. The ST model gets some more heavily bolstered seats and unique leather patterns with silver seat stitching, along with different sill plates, a unique gauge cluster and an ST-branded steering wheel. Stability and traction control programming is also new, with relaxed modes allowing for more slip angle before intervening. More importantly efficiency has additional gains from the switch from a six-speed automatic to an eight-speed gearbox - which is now operated via a new rotary knob, instead of the classic gear lever. The Edge also has available post-collision braking, which Ford said automatically applies moderate brake pressure in the event of a collision to avoid further injury, damage to the vehicle or a second collision. Instead, it sits in the lineup as the SUV that does FoMoCo's bidding in the premium crossover segment, which has seen a Bitcoin-rivaling explosion these last few years. There's also a unique aero kit including rear spoiler, a diffuser encompassing dual exhausts, and a wide mesh grille for improved cooling. A 12-speaker B&O Play system from Harman will handle audio.

Inside, technology shifts up too, with optional wireless charging and a standard Wi-Fi hotspot that gives internet access to up to 10 devices. WIth the Edge being Ford's best-ever selling SUV in 2017, it makes sense to add an "ST" badge to the vehicle and make it more appealing than ever before.

More standard safety features include forward collision warning, pre-collision assist, blind-spot monitoring, lane-keep assist, LED headlights and automatic high beams. Using the FordPassTM app, drivers can also use their smartphone to start, lock, unlock and locate their Edge.

Ford's typical oval grille is larger than on the standard auto, and includes wider mesh to allow the Edge to take in more air.

SYNC with AppLink™, an enhanced voice-recognition communications and entertainment system, is also standard.
