  1. We turned those two feature requests on. As for the dark theme, I totally agree and I am note sure why after of these years it's not part of the software! Very frustrating.

    Ford Edge Forum: WHAT HAPPENED?

    Thanks, all. I feel bad and angry at the same time. Nothing some Seals Bermuda Black Rum won't cure though 😜 The images / photos are uploading (again), so give it some time and we'll be back to normal - except faster.
  4. Ford Edge Forum: WHAT HAPPENED? These few days have been a huge battle - we simply wanted to move this forum to a dedicated server this past Sunday - easy enough. Except, the assignment of the domain to the server got stuck in the process and it took the hosting company until today to get it to assign properly. Since then, I've been getting everything back to the way it was - no data loss just A LOT OF frustration here! Some images are missing, however, they will reappear as the uploading process completes. The good news is that we're on a new, dedicated server with a lot more speed and we can upgrade better. SO VERY SORRY for the downtime - my blood pressure is slowing coming down now 🐍

    Tuning Main Folder

    I suppose the question is: Do we do one main forum just for tunes or one for each engine?

    What happened to the site?

    That's what I was thinking. Speed tests shows it's slightly faster here too. Although, it may not be able to handle the traffic - that's the only reason for moving it. We'll see.

    What happened to the site?

    The server was upgraded to a new version of Apache. EVERY site, except this one worked flawlessly. I put a help ticket in and it lingered in the support que - I think it was missed - I called and they said it would be another 24-48 hours ?. Rather than continue waiting in purgatory, I moved it to a different server until issues could be fixed on the other one. Here's where we are at now.

    Ford Edge RS

    Rumors have been ripe for a few months now about the appearance of a future Ford Edge RS. Does it seem probable or likely? Yes. Now that Ford is drifting into the crossover market heavily, it's extremely likely that we will seen an Edge RS. According to people in Dearborn, and Edge RS may not happen until the next redesign. Thoughts on an Edge RS?

    First Test: Edge ST

    Ford has been working to address some software issues. The car that the mags. tested was a pre-production, however it should have been 100% ready to display its performance attributes.

    Ford Edge ST Facebook Page

    Really - I was totally surprised that they attached the sport moniker to the Edge and not the ST. Same with the Fusion Sport.

    Ford Edge ST Introduced

    Ford Edge ST Introduced Following Ford’s best-ever U.S. SUV sales in 2017, Ford further steps up the game by introducing first performance-enhanced ST to its SUV lineup with the all-new Edge ST Edge ST features superior handling and braking, ST-tuned sport suspension, Sport Mode, new quick-shifting 8-speed transmission, standard all-wheel-drive, and the most powerful V6 engine in its class New Edge SUV lineup is Ford’s smartest ever, offering more standard driver-assist technology than any other midsize SUV and introducing to the segment new available technologies such as Post-Collision Braking, Evasive Steering Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go and Lane Centering Download 2019 Edge ST Broll (1.5GB) | Download 2019 Edge Titanium Broll (400MB) DETROIT, Jan. 11, 2018 – Ford begins introducing the coveted ST brand to its SUV lineup with the unveiling of the all-new Edge ST today, building on its best-ever SUV sales year in the U.S. The all-new Edge ST – Ford’s first SUV to be tuned by the Ford Performance team – features the most powerful V6 engine available in its class with a specially tuned 2.7-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost® engine pumping out 335 horsepower and 380 lb.-ft. of torque. It’s also outfitted for dynamic handling with a quick-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission, standard all-wheel drive with selectable traction control, an available performance brake package, and ST-tuned sport suspension. “Edge ST puts a new animal on the road – a performance SUV with a track mentality,” said Hau Thai-Tang, executive vice president of Product Development and Purchasing. “From a performance standpoint, and with its SUV silhouette and versatility, it sets a new standard Edge fans will love to drive.” A new Sport Mode allows Edge ST drivers to experience more aggressive throttle response and shifting patterns that hold gears near redline through cornering maneuvers, sharper engine braking, and a more resonant exhaust tone. Drivers can also manually shift using the steering wheel-mounted SelectShift® paddle shifters while firmly positioned in unique Edge ST seating with additional bolstering. To complement its performance abilities, Edge ST features new front and rear styling, a wide mesh grille for optimal cooling, deep side skirts and dual-exhaust outlets. Unique 21-inch wheels are available and interior design cues on the steering wheel, seat backs and scuff plates provide a subtle reminder that this five-passenger SUV is something special. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZrTyIdOj Smart Vehicle for a Smart World The new Edge – including all-new Edge ST – is Ford’s smartest SUV ever, and every model comes standard with more driver-assist technology than any other midsize SUV. This includes Forward Collision Warning and Dynamic Brake Support; Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection; BLIS® with Cross-Traffic Alert; Lane-Keeping Alert; Lane-Keeping Assist; Auto High Beams; and Hill-Start Assist. In addition, standard safety features include AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™ and Curve Control, and 911 Assist®. For 2019, Edge introduces the following first-for-Ford and first-in-segment features as either standard or available equipment: Post-Collision Braking: Helps reduce the impact of a potential secondary collision by automatically applying moderate brake pressure when an initial collision event is detected; slowing the vehicle can potentially lessen injury to occupants and damage to the vehicle Evasive Steering Assist: Helps drivers steer around stopped or slower vehicles to help avoid collisions. Designed to operate at city and highway speeds, it uses radar and a camera to detect slower-moving and stationary vehicles ahead and provides steering support to enable drivers to maneuver around a vehicle if a collision is imminent Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go and Lane Centering: Helps the vehicle maintain a comfortable driving distance from vehicles ahead and helps reduce stress during long, light-traffic road trips by helping keep the vehicle centered in its lane “Edge drivers expect a sophisticated, modern driving experience,” said Cristina Aquino, Edge marketing manager. “Bringing a host of new technologies as standard and introducing these segment-first features helps ensure customers feel more confident behind the wheel.” Dual-stage airbags, side-curtain airbags, rain-sensing wipers, rear view camera and an innovative active glove box knee airbag are also standard, while front and rear ultrasonic sensors, 180-degree front and rear cameras and Enhanced Active Park Assist are offered as available equipment. Technology for a Connected World Inside, drivers will find an available wireless charging pad nestled in the forward media bin, and they can opt for an upgraded audio experience, HD Radio™ and a 12-speaker B&O PLAY™ Premium Audio System by HARMAN specially tuned for Edge. Standard on all Edge models is FordPass® Connect, with a Wi-Fi hotspot that gives internet access to up to 10 devices. Using the FordPass™ app, drivers can also use their smartphone to start, lock, unlock and locate their Edge. SYNC® with AppLink™, an enhanced voice-recognition communications and entertainment system, is also standard. This system supports the new Ford+Alexa app, giving users access to their favorite media content, daily appointments, smart home controls, and the ability to search for nearby points of interest and even shop for everyday items, all from the road. Drivers can also upgrade to SYNC 3 with an 8-inch touchscreen for enhanced in-vehicle experience. A powerfully sophisticated ride The new Edge comes standard with a 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine that offers a 5 horsepower increase and improved fuel economy over the outgoing model. It is mated to a newly designed 8-speed transmission with Auto Start-Stop technology that efficiently turns the engine off when the vehicle is stopped and idling, then seamlessly restarts in milliseconds when the brake is released. Inside, a redesigned center console is accentuated by an all-new rotary gearshift dial that frees up space, allows easier access to the wireless charging pad and enhances the vehicle’s modern, sophisticated feel. With a wider grille and freshened fascia that create an athletic, modern appearance, the new Edge maintains the reputation for sophistication it’s carried for more than a decade. Full LED headlamps are standard, LED fog lamps and signature lighting are available and a redesigned hood imparts a wider, more planted stance. Built at the Oakville Assembly Plant in Oakville, Ontario, Canada, the new Ford Edge and all-new Edge ST are due to arrive in showrooms this summer.
