For drivers looking to bump up their SUV game, the Ford Edge is a popular model that’s beloved by both singletons and families alike. This two-row, five-passenger SUV is offered in a variety of trims including the SE, SEL, ST-Line, Titanium, and ST so as to meet the needs of all drivers. With the release of the 2022 Ford Edge ST, some might be wondering what this latest model has to offer. Let’s take a closer look at the specs and upgrades drivers can expect out of the Ford Edge ST in 2022.
Ford Edge ST 2022 Upgrades
Look closely, and you’ll see some welcomed upgrades in the Ford Edge ST in 2022 from its predecessor in 2021. For the 2022 model, buyers will notice that the Edge now comes in a standard all-wheel drive. This move bumps up the price to about $2,000 over the base price of last year’s model. Add ons include exterior and interior cosmetic upgrades as well as front and rear tire performance and optional wheel covers.
Key Features of the Ford Edge ST 2022
There are a couple of key features to look forward to on the 2022 Edge ST. The first is its classic 2.7L V6 EcoBoost Engine which offers a nice burst of power, making it one of the most powerful in its class. Performance upgrades on the 2022 Edge ST include the 7 speed SelectShift automatic transmission that improves performance and makes handling overall more enjoyable. The sports suspension upgrade will also keep you driving smoothly even in the bumpiest of conditions.
ST Performance Brake Package
Perhaps the most notable upgrade is the 20-in wheels that offer a sportier look to the Edge. Drivers will also have the option to bump up to the ST Performance Brake Package that features sporty 21-inch all-black gloss wheels. The package also offers larger vented front and rear brake rotors as well as the classic red-painted brake calipers. Additional features of this package included summer-only performance tires, brushless radiator cooling fan, performance brake pads, and vented brake shields. The overall package is a nice add-on that enhances the look of the Ford Edge ST.
Other cosmetic updates on the exterior include indented styling on the body for a subtle yet defined look. Black headlight treatments and rear chrome exhaust tips are subtle upgrades that really help to refine the look of the ST as well.
Look inside the ST and you’ll see some subtle upgrades as well. The leather steering wheel features a thick grip, contrast stitching, and paddle shifters. The sport seats are enhanced through added side bolstering, an embroidered ST logo just below the headrests, and faux suede inserts.
The front chairs offer a really refined yet comfortable look that can be adjusted to perfectly suit your needs. Settle into the driver’s chair to find a 10-way power seat with both powered lumbar and recline options. The passenger’s seat will see similar features but with only 6-way power adjustments. While the passenger can enjoy manual recline, there is no lumbar support. In true comfort, however, both passenger and driver can enjoy heated seats as well.
The 2022 Ford Edge ST starts at $45,945 with some models leasing for as low as $575 a month.
