I was able to crawl under the Ford Edge ST prototype and get some video of the under carriage.  Exhaust, drive line and a bit of the PTU etc.

Thanks for the video and for taking the time to get under the car.  I did notice a couple things:

First at 5:05 it can tow! I am wondering what the tow load is rated at . It looked like a class III with a 2X2 receiver.  This is great news for me as that is something I can use . I keep my old Explorer around just for towing and I only tow a few times a year.
At 8:08 there was a shot of what looked like a very beefy front sway bar.
At 8:44 those are 4 piston calipers up front not 6 piston.  They were painted red though and everyone knows red calipers work better>>> LOL
And last at 10:00 the grill was opened up completely over the intercooler on both sides except for where the license plate goes in the middle. 
Great video!

The license plate will go on the bumper between the radiator and above the intercooler.

Hey Xtra, dad and I have towed with the edge, I loves to have load behind it.  keep it in sport though.

I found something interesting just now. According to the 2019 Edge ST fact sheet published by Ford, the Edge ST will have a water-cooled PTU.

This is good news as the PTU can and has had problems with heat in the past. I am happy that Ford knows this and has addressed the problem. Now if ford would only drop in the 3.0TT with 400+ HP and add a duel clutch transmission I would trade in my car pronto. As Ford is dropping cars and moving into Trucks, SUV and Crossovers it only makes sense to add performance to the crossover / hot hatch line of vehicles to stay competitive in this new market strategy.

A watercooled PTU will not obviate the need for regular fluid changes, especially if you plan on doing "performance" or all-city driving.  Police Interceptors have racked up plenty of experience with this, and they change the fluid every 30K miles, some even at 10K miles per macbwt, to keep the PTU from failing.

Based on what I saw the Edge comes with a Class  2 tow rating:  Class II hitches are weight carrying (WC) hitches rated up to 3500 lbs. gross trailerweight (GTW) with a maximum trailer tongue weight (TW) of 300 lbs. A Class II hitchusually has a 1-1/4" square receiver opening. A higher class drawbar does not increase the towing capacity of the hitch.

Man too bad as I would entertain flying out to LA from FL with my wife to buy your ride and do a cross country road trip!!!
