Steeda Announces New Ford Edge Program

At the 2008 SEMA Show in Las Vegas in the Ford Motor Company Corporate Display, Steeda Autosports revealed the all new 2009 Steeda Edge Sport. Taking the fine Edge platform that Ford Motor Company has developed, and drawing on the over two decades of experience working exclusively with Ford Motor Company products, we took the 2009 Ford Edge Sport to another level never seen before in the marketplace – creating a crossover vehicle that is worthy of the Steeda name – The 2009 Steeda Edge Sport.

At last year’s SEMA Show, Edsel Ford II personally challenged Steeda founder and President Dario Orlando during dinner to: ”….build me a Steeda Edge…something that would provide increased performance to the Edge platform.” Dario took it upon himself to champion the vast Steeda resources into a new direction by initiating development of the ultimate performance crossover vehicle. “We worked extensively with the Ford Edge Product Development Team since early January of this year – exchanging notes, thoughts, and ideas on this project” stated Dario, adding: “Ford Motor Company provided us a developmental vehicle for our initial efforts, and what you see here is the culmination of great teamwork between Ford and Steeda in the creation of a greatly enhanced performance crossover vehicle.”

The 2009 Steeda Edge Sport offers a factory-quality, customized crossover for buyers who want added attitude and performance in one utilitarian package. This customized version of America’s best-selling crossover is available from Ford Dealers with many appearance modifications, including 22-inch polished aluminum rims, a stylish 8-piece body kit, blackout headlamps and tail lamps, a dark brushed interior center stack and bold contrast stitching on the shift knob and steering wheel.

A host of performance modifications provides added power and sportier handling that result in a vehicle that responds remarkably to driver input without hesitation, and delivers road hugging performance and sport comfort unseen in the crossover market today. On the inside, leather seats and billeted trim deliver increased comfort and amped-up attitude that create a sensation of a comfort and oneness with the vehicle and the open road. Topping it off, unique Steeda exterior graphics let the whole world know that this Steeda Edge Sport is something very-very special.

9th Annual Steeda Stampede Recap

The 2008 Steeda Stampede, an annual event at Steeda World Headquarters in Pompano Beach Florida for the past nine years, was once again a huge success as the Steeda faithful packed the entire Steeda campus for a full day of car shows, tech discussions, dyno runs, and much-much more. In addition, over $5,000 in door prizes were given away from sponsors such as Nitto, Tokico, Hawk, and Tremec and Frank’s garage had a slew of performance and take-off part bargains for everyone.

The expert culinary chefs of the Palm Beach Mustang Club were on hand to provide their usual grilling expertise by cooking hot dogs and hamburgers for the event. As expected, the food was teriffic!

On display were many great Steeda and Ford performance vehicles, including many of the historic Steeda vehicles built over the years and raced on the track. In addition, the entire Steeda campus was packed with customer rides – all on display for everyone to check out and comment on.

Get ready to mark your calendar for the 2009 Stampede – it is an event you will not want to miss!
