    I'm loving it. When my family outgrows the RS I'll most likely go to this if they don't have a Fusion ST wagon by then.

    I think I would pass on this. I don't necessarily love SUV's and I definitely don't like the look of this one. Will the spoiler actually do anything to create downforce on that car?

    Guys this is most likely going to replace the sport to unify the lineup. Right now the Sport trim already gets forgotten because people think it's like an accord sport or something thats only appearance. and what SUV can you get in this price point thats more luxurious and faster? Audi SQ5 is similar specs power/speed wise and starts $15k higher.

    This picks up 90HP and 105 lb. ft. of torque over current base Edge. That seems like a good jump to me.

    I like the idea of this vehicle. Would love to replace wife's SJ Forester XT. Only drawback is 'soft road' versatility. Have taken the Forester through places I really didn't think it could go. That thing gets around. Anyway, 85 more horse and over 100 lb. ft more torque would be nice.

    mods: Fixed the seat, fixed the exhaust valve, fixed the engine under tray with DGM skid plate. Some other stuff that Ford didn't screw up to begin with.

    I'm a bit disappointed since I'm FoST owner as well. Pure dilution of the ST brand in my opinion. I have a some inner rage for SUVS in general with the exception of the edge sport, jaguar and mazdas. To me it does look nice and I'm sure is an upgrade over the current sport.
    Having said that I always believed the fusion needed an ST first before anything else in their lineup. According to Ford they didn't build an ST fusion because no manual, what gives?
    Also, if the edge gets this ST treatment the tach should be alot bigger than it currently looks like it is. Looks like the fusion sport tach. To me that's a glaring omission and unforgivable lol.
    Here in Canada that edge will be north of 60 grand before taxes, no thanks for a watered down ST.
    Im curious for the reviews though.

    Ford sold like less than 1% of Fusions as manual. Modern autos are faster etc as well. So it's cost saving for them and technically more performance. If they can do what they did with the Mustangs 10-speed at least. The problem is I love the current Edges upgraded wheels and not loving these ST ones!

    I pass on driving my RS on long trips all the time because of the "way too harsh" ride. If the Edge ST has similar performance to the RS with a sporty yet smooth ride... I'm down.
