Let’s play a little word game. I’m going to list four sets of adjectives, and then you’re going to think about a vehicle that fits that description. The first set is sporty, fast, and fun. The second set is convenient, dependable, and reliable. The third is spacious, comfortable, and luxurious. The fourth and last set is sleek, safe, and affordable. Ready now? Can you think of a car, truck, or SUV that fits all twelve adjectives? I bet I can! The 2020 Ford Edge ST is a midsize Ford SUV that can be described with all of these adjectives and more.
The Edge is one of five different SUVs currently offered by Ford, filling the niche of the two-row, midsize sport utility vehicle. Ford SUVs are some of the most diverse on the marketplace today, running from the compact EcoSport to the small Escape, the midsize Edge, to the three-row Explorer and full-size Expedition. The ST is the top-of-the-line trim on the 2020 Ford Edge, right above the Titanium, SEL, and SE. That means that when you buy an Edge ST, you are getting the whole package. So let’s find out how this SUV fits all those adjectives above.
Sporty, Fast and Fun
When you think of these three words, I bet you’re looking at a car with excellent performance. If so, then you need to look at the 2020 Ford Edge ST. This SUV has a fantastic 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 engine that is strong and efficient. The Edge’s sporty engine can produce an astounding 335 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque. That easily gives the Ford Edge ST a serious edge over the other drivers when you are accelerating off of a red light, or just cruising on the freeway. The Edge ST comes equipped with an 8-speed automatic transmission that is genuinely responsive, putting you in full control of this all-wheel drive standard, midsize SUV. Fast is the ability to go 0 to 60 mph in under six seconds. Fun is taking your Ford Edge with its intelligent all-wheel drive and 20-inch bright-machined aluminum wheels out on the road, testing the limits of this performance SUV.
Convenient, Dependable and Reliable
The 2020 Ford Edge ST also fits these words to a tee. The Edge has a full 39.2 cubic feet of cargo space in the trunk that expands to over 73.4 cubic feet with the second row of seats folded down. This provides a truly convenient amount of space whether you are moving belongings, or taking along luggage on your road trip. The Edge ST is also dependable, able to tow up to 3,500 pounds of trailer. This is an amazing figure for a luxury performance midsize SUV. It is also reliable, giving you an SUV that is not only fast but also efficient. The Edge ST has been rated to provide 19 MPG in city driving, 26 MPG on the highway, and a combined 21 MPG. Those are astounding figures for an all-wheel drive vehicle of its size, speed, and power. The Ford Edge ST will give you peace of mind that you have bought an SUV with these abilities.
Spacious, Comfortable and Luxurious
In addition to having great cargo space, you and your four passengers will have plenty of room in your 2020 Ford Edge ST. You and the other front-row passenger will enjoy 40.2 inches of headroom, 42.6 inches of legroom, 55.9 inches of headroom, and 60.3 inches of shoulder room. Don’t worry; the three rear row passengers won’t be complaining or fighting over who gets to ride shotgun. That’s because they’ll be enjoying 40.3 inches of headroom, 40.6 inches of legroom, 57.5 inches of hip room, and 60.5 inches of shoulder room. Instead of complaining, they’ll be too busy stretching out and getting comfortable in their luxurious, leather-trimmed seats with Miko inserts. Speaking of comfort and luxury, the driver and front passenger seats are both heated ST bolstered buckets, with 10-way power adjustments. These seats feature trim-exclusive city silver stitching and embossed ST logo.
Completing the ST luxury package is the fully loaded Ford SYNC 3 infotainment system with FordPass Connect. This allows you to turn your Edge ST into a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot. The system is displayed on a user-friendly 8-inch color touchscreen that links you to an array of informational and entertainment features, including SiriusXM Radio. Completing this exceptional feature is a state-of-the-art B&O Sound System by Bang & Olufsen. This contains 12-speakers, turning your Edge ST into a mobile concert hall. The only problem will be deciding what great music and programming to listen to on your SiriusXM Radio.

AdvanceTrac with roll stability control and curve control will help keep your Edge ST on the road, even in extreme weather conditions.
Post-collision braking automatically stops the car after a crash has occurred to avoid a secondary collision. Hill Start Assist helps you avoid rollback collisions on grades by holding the brake as you switch your foot from the brake to the gas pedal. The BLIS (blind spot information system) with cross-traffic alert helps you change lanes or back out of a spot by detecting traffic in your ST’s blind spot. The system will alert you when you signal to make a lane change if there is another vehicle in your blind spot. There are also autolamp, wiper-activated headlights that turn on when your wipers are engaged, and rain-sensing wipers that automatically turn on when the system senses rain, sleet, or snow. As you can see, Ford has pulled out all the stops to make sure you and your passengers are safe as can be in your 2020 Ford ST.
The 2020 Ford ST is also affordable, especially considering all of the features we have discussed today.
