Ford Edge ST revealed as proper performance variant

Ford Edge SUV Facelift REVEALED

Ford Edge SUV Facelift REVEALED

The 2019 Edge ST joins the refreshed 2019 Edge lineup and also signals the introduction of the first ever ST badged Ford SUV. The Blue Oval automaker isn't saying what it'll do, but the Edge Sport could dispatch 0-60 times in about 5.7 seconds and run the quarter-mile in 14.3, and you can expect to see the new Edge ST better those numbers.

For example, the Blue Oval has made a decision to showcase there - in front of the worldwide audience of the North American International Auto Show - the updated Ford Edge midsize SUV, complete with the all-new introduction of the ST version.

That motor puts out 335hp and 380 lb-ft of torque.

Nintendo Russia hints at a Nintendo Direct next month
The Wii U platformer Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is coming to the Switch with Funky Kong as a new playable character. The story mode will have players traveling across the Mushroom Kingdom participating in matches, minigames, and boss battles.

Power goes through an eight-speed automatic gearbox and the standard Edge's all-wheel drive, with "selectable" traction control and "ST-tuned" sports suspension. Paddle shifters mounted on the steering wheel, meanwhile, will allow drivers to manually shift the gears of the new Ford Edge ST.

Performance brakes are optional, as are 21-inch wheels and summer Pirelli tires. Both the new Ford Edge and all-new Edge ST are set to hit showrooms this summer. The new 2019 Ford Edge will come equipped with the standard 2-liter engine, offering enhanced performance and fuel economy compared to its predecessor. A new Sport mode offers more aggressive throttle response and shifting, paired with a "more resonant" exhaust note, seldom a bad thing.

The more interesting option is the new ST trim, which replaces the Sport in the Edge lineup.

Retail inflation rises to 17-month high of 5.21% in December
Despite a cut in taxes, retail petrol prices have risen 5.6 per cent and diesel by 9 per cent since June in Delhi. In a separate report on Friday, the Commerce Department said retail sales rose 0.4 percent last month.

To complement its performance abilities, Edge ST features new front and rear styling, a wide mesh grille for optimal cooling, deep side skirts and dual-exhaust outlets. The upgraded Sync 3 system expands on the range of possibilities, and includes an 8.0-inch touch screen and a 12-speaker Bang and Olufsen premium audio.

The vehicle also has available evasive-steering assist to help drivers steer around stopped or slowing vehicles.

Ford is going to fit the new brakes in its 2019 redesigned Edge midsize crossover and its 2019 new Ranger midsize pickup. The FordPass Connect multimedia connectivity system with Wi-Fi will be standard, enabling the connection of up to 10 wireless personal electronic devices, and enabling communication with smartphones via the FordPass app.

Wells Fargo Q4 Profit Rises, Beats View; But Revenues Miss
After $1.04 actual EPS reported by Wells Fargo & Company for the previous quarter, Wall Street now forecasts 0.00% EPS growth. Wells Fargo & Company (NYSE:WFC) shares were trading higher by 1.38 percent ($0.86) at $63.12 a piece in Wednesday's session.

The reign of the sedan is over-mowed down by the fuel-sipping Escapes and EcoBoost-powered Expeditions-and it's for that reason that Ford chose to funnel its R&D money into the all-new Edge crossover. To our minds the first ST model was the Mondeo ST24 of more than 20 years ago and since then we've had a fairly steady stream of fast (ish) Fords, from the underwhelming (ST170) to the bloody fantastic (outgoing Fiesta).
