I feel like not having a manual transmission kind of breaks the ST formula. Both the Fiesta and Focus ST are manual only, why shouldn't the Edge ST? Oh, I know why: "it's built for the American market and we also don't want to put in the time to engineer a whole new transmission because we don't have one that fits the Ecoboost because us Americans are lazy and won't buy it :(" THIS IS THE ONLY THING I WANT IN AN SUV OR TRUCK: A MANUAL OPTION THAT COMES WITH A DECEMT ENGINE. THAT IS HOW YOU GET CAR GUYS TO BUY YOUR SHIT.

You know theyre DYING to say its GARBAGE but because they have a relationship with Ford they can really have an HONEST review. Why would you pay 40k for this? i dont even like Ford but i would much rather have an RS. Oh you need the room? you cant be an adult with kids who requires the space AND want to be a race car driver. Unless you get an STI hatch. LOL

It's a hell of an SUV, I used to sell Fords & out of all the SUVs it was without a doubt my favorite. Explorer Sport, Escape, they have nothing on this and the price point isn't too far apart from one another. Hire me Donut

I have the 2.7l Ecoboost (same engine as this) in my F150 and it’s badass. Actually beats the 3.5 Ecoboost and the 5.0 NA in a quarter mile (although the others win in too speed.) Because it’s a small engine the turbos spook up so quickly, so it’s really fun and responsive.

Maybe they are saving the 3.5 V6 from the Raptor for the Edge RS lol and they probably might make an Escape ST... the Escape is the new Fiesta and the Edge is the new Focus....

Ford here’s a good idea do what Dodge does put a performance V8 in your suvs you know kinda like how there’s a Durango SRT? Imagine a Ford Edge with a Coyote 5.0? Someone tell me I’m not crazy

I cant take any Sync praise for for seriously. My first tiny commuter car when I lived in the city was a 2016 fiesta. About as exciting as watching paint dry I know but it should have got the job done. that and you can't beat the 0 percent APR when you're on a budget. My friends 2014 Focus ST, my friend sisters 2012 focus, and my fiesta all had endless issues with bluetooth and sync. I had my APIM unit completely die and replace 3 times in 2 years. My friends ST would just get stuck trying to sync and you'd have to pull the a12 fuse once a week to get it to actually work. 2012 focus has issues staying connected to any phone and music would skip and stutter more often than not. Across 3 different years and cars the bluetooth and audio system was always broken more often than it was fixed. Ford's service solution was a "bummer man" response and wouldn't really do anything and send us on our way. At a glance sync looks nice but anytime you get to use it on a frequent basis, it drops the ball so often it might as well just leave it on the ground. Even a rented 2017 Fusion Titanium had spotty Bluetooth connection and stuttery music for a week I had it. Go one one long ass test drive if you want to see if the sync system will hold up.

The problem is who are they really marketing this car to? I'm a parent and I would not pay 42k for this. You can hear the slush box shifting. No parents I know will be buying these. I think they need to rethink this. Orrrrr drop the fany, give it 400 herse purrs, better Trans, and 6MT option or DCT.

Agreed, when I think ST I think way more than just 335hp, I want to see 400hp at least in it. It also doesn't scream ST, it just looks like a boring normal Edge. These are things that definitely should be addressed.

Not really sure why you would compare this to an Audi. These appear to be sporty and fun to drive...Audi’s are boring and predictable to me. Not really into overpriced volkswagens.

You dummies the 2.7 is way better then the 3.5! It has more technology like CGI block, liquid cooled turbos directly bolted to the heads (no manifolds). This engine will last way longer then the 3.5 for sure and gets better MPGs.

In my opinion the Ford Edge ST is a great car. The only problem with it is that it tainted a more car enthusiast focused line up for light and practical cars. Since the fans of the Fiesta and Focus line up were mad that Ford stopped importing the cars here only to be replaced by a large performance SUV to which most car enthusiasts don't want it makes sense why they're mad. So my solution to all this negativity is to change the name of the Edge ST so that it doesn't market into a line to where most people don't want it (car enthusiasts). We don't get mad at the Dodge Trackhawk because it's an SUV right? Because the name just fits its identity. ST doesn't fit it's identity. The Edge is only practical but not light. Even if it counters the weight issue with amazing handling people would still say its heavy. Car enthusiasts don't need that much space in a car. The most they might ever need is four doors and the occasional rented truck. So Ford, if you want to sell more of your performance SUVs or crossovers. Give each a name that fits well with it. Like how Land Rover did with the Land Rover Sport SVR. Also please tell me how do you guys think about my arguement. Thanks.

The New Car Show is definitely new, they'll figure it out hopefully. Hopefully won't say "like" 100 times like a elementary school kid that can't read out loud. Anybody else notice the engines trying to stall, might be related to most recent Ford recall of 1.5 million cars, for stalling reasons. I think Nolan did a better job in this video than James did hosting. Kind of seems that they sold out to Ford, so the video of course brings out the good things in this new car. I would like to know the cons, but that's not going to happen. Is it better than an Audi, no, Ford just decided to make it more expensive. Video tempted me to unsubscribe. Anxious for the one about the new Ranger, hope it's better.

Alright I know this sounds stupid but I am still gonna say this. This car is just a quicker edge with some cosmetic stuff, almost nothing special. 330 ish hp is like the bottom line of so called "sports SUV". Actually Lots of SUVs could have that much of power, even some Ford explorer does .Beat an Audi? I wondering where does that even come from. Maybe it could outrun a q5 but that's about it. Overall, I think it's a overpriced/outdated SUV that Ford want to you think it's fast.
