Re: 2019 Ford Edge ST: Top 10 Things You Need To Know! (Video)

In Europe, when Ford decided to make a 182hp diesel version of the Focus ST, they kept the "ST" model name.

I wonder why the sporty Edge in Europe (which is powered by a high-output 235hp 2.0 twin-turbo diesel) is only badged as an "ST-Line" instead of "ST" like its gasoline-engine counterpart in North America?

In terms of appearance, they basically look identical.

European Edge ST-Line (diesel)


North American Edge ST

Because the ST badge on a high rider is as a dumb as if Ford put Raptor badges on Fiesta,Focus & Mondeo.

No need to get silly with your analogies.
On road trucks and utility vehicles that lean hard toward sport have been a thing forever. There is nothing wrong with offering an option for fun, or at the least, much more fun.

Funny... anyway, Ford never adds a "D" to identify a model as a diesel.
This is the Mk3 Focus ST 2.0 TDCi (diesel).

Says some.
I say Sport Technologies fits much better on this high tech utility..... than RS or SVT or SVO or GT or whatever. Even Sport is just not enough,.
Meh, someone will always be upset.
That much is certain.

Here's Autoblog's take:

https://www.autoblog.com/2018/10/09/...view-643381zx/

They complained about the transmission and said they felt the V6 was slow to accelerate?

Sounds like the opposite of what I've read elsewhere.

2009 Ford Flex Limited w/ AWD
Light Ice Blue/White Suede Roof | Med. Lt. Stone Interior | Vista Roof
2018 Ford Mustang GT Convertible
Lightning Blue | Black Top | Black Interior
