ttac rewind 2019 ford edge st first drive

For your perusal this fine fall evening, we present a first drive from the autumn of 2018.


We sent Mr. Posky to Utah to drive this Ford, and his thoughts are linked here. Make some cider, spiked or not, or a cup of hot cocoa, and give this a read.

    Is this the infamous engine with the water pump built into the engine block?

      I think this one is external but still a major pain to get at. It was the naturally aspirated 3.5 and 3.7 and the first-gen 3.5 turbo that had the internal pumps.

      Huh?

    I liked the first-gen Edge better. The styling was more coherent, the interior was less cost-cut, and all trims had a nice-sounding 3.5 or 3.7 V6 rather than the two point oh tee that comes in everything but the ST.

    The 2022 version of this has the same dashboard, but the infotainment screen is now long like a Tesla and they swapped out the v6 for 2.0 4 banger.

      You might be thinking about the "ST-line" model. The ST still has the 2.7T.
