Understandably so, the engine and powertrain features of the recently announced all-new 2019 Ford Edge ST are what most people are talking about when they discuss the first Ford SUV to be specifically and specially tuned by the Ford Performance team. But there’s more to the all-new Ford Edge ST than just its insanely fun to drive engine. In fact, the 2019 Ford Edge ST will also include a wide array of segment-first standard and available safety features. That’s right, not only is the 2019 Edge ST the first Ford SUV to be worked on by the Ford Performance team, it’s also the first Ford SUV to offer some of these advanced new safety and driver assistance features – which we’re going to tell you all about right here.

The 2018 Ford Edge lineup is well known as one of the safest SUV lineups around, but the 2019 Ford Edge ST – and the rest of the 2019 Ford Edge lineup, for that matter – is going to up the safety ante even more. That’s because the all-new Ford Edge ST – and, again, the rest of the 2019 Edge lineup – features a slew of segment-first safety and driver assistance systems. This list includes a post collision braking system, an evasive steering system and an adaptive cruise control system that itself features stop-and-go and lane centering capabilities. The new Ford Edge ST at Brandon Ford in Tampa, FL, also features well known safety standards such as a full complement of airbags, rain-sensing wipers, a rear view camera, front and rear ultrasonic sensors, a 180-degree front camera and an enhanced active park assist system.
“Edge drivers expect a sophisticated, modern driving experience. Bringing a host of new technologies as standard and introducing these segment-first features helps ensure customers feel more confident behind the wheel.” – Cristina Aquino, Edge Marketing Manager
