SUVs are boring, right?
The kind of cars that Dubai mums use to stitch their daily chores together between school runs with the kids. Well, not anymore, thanks to the all-new Ford Edge ST – the first proper performance SUV from Ford.
With breathtaking looks and scintillating performance, the Ford Edge ST packs such a lot between its bumpers.
The Edge ST really stands out from the crowd
Based on the new Ford Edge, the ST gets its street cred thanks to the team at Ford Performance – the same crew behind the F-150 Raptor off-road beast, Mustang special editions and incredible GT supercar.
Performance is where the Edge ST wins. The first thing the Ford Performance team did was upgrade the engine to a twin-turbo V6 with 335 horsepower – and an eight-speed gearbox that feeds that power to all four wheels.
The best companion for all your road-trips in and out of the city
The ST is really designed to dominate the road, highway and track. All-wheel-drive is handy off-road, but in the ST’s case it’s been used to give the car much more grip on the road when you really need it. And it really shows: the car grips and grips, making every motorway slip-road and exit pure ecstasy.
The ST is all about the drive
Poke the starter button, twist the drive dial, punch the S button and the Edge ST comes alive. The instrument cluster flashes up with a huge rev counter, and the engine noise gets angrier. The sports seats really look after you in the high-speed corners – but are also equally as comfortable on longer journeys when you need the extra comfort.
Sleek, smooth interiors that will make you the envy of everyone
For all its performance, the Edge ST hides its racing stripes behind a few subtle exterior hints. Cover up the ST badges and you really need to know where to look to spot the differences. The only other exterior clues are the twin-exhaust pipes at the back, the enormous 21-inch wheels and sports tyres, deep side-skirts and a modified front grille.
We love the understated cool that comes from not having to shout about your skills. We love that, given the tiniest excuse to let loose, the ST is able to slay at any given moment.
We love the Edge ST, and we’re sure you will too.
