What is new for the 2021 Ford Edge ST-Line?
Inspired by Ford Performance, Edge ST-Line features a unique ST-style grille with body-colored bumpers, black ST beltline molding combined with lower sport cladding, standard fog lamps, and signature LED lighting. Black roof rack side rails, 20-inch gloss black aluminum wheels, and unique Edge ST-Line badging enhance the look.
The 2021 Ford Edge has five trim levels: SE, SEL, ST-Line, Titanium, and ST. ST stands for Sports Technologies and is the performance model that gets the 335-hp twin-turbo 2.7-liter V-6. All other models get the 4-cylinder.
The ST-Line uses the same 250-horsepower 275 @ 3,000 rpm turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission as the rest of the Edge models except the ST. All-wheel drive is a $1245 option but will be standard as of 2022.
Base price on the car I test drove is $38,440, add in the options of the Ford co-pilot 360 assist for 895.00, panoramic vista roof for 1,595.00, and the cargo compartment net for 50.00, plus destination, and the total is $42,225.00. EPA estimated mpg is 21 city/29highway/24 combined. I got on the low-end, around 24 mpg.
Exterior, You get the ST’s muscular body, blacked-out grille, aerodynamic side skirts, and the 20-inch wheels.
You’ll find a leather-wrapped steering wheel and red contrast stitching on the seats in the interior. There is also a 12.0-inch touchscreen running Ford’s latest Sync 4A infotainment suite that all Edge models received for 2021. Ford has incorporated the wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, a WiFi hotspot, lane-keeping assist, smart cruise control, and navigation.
If you want the look of the ST with better miles per gallon and fewer dollars for your kid going to school, this is the car for them.
