Ford shows Kuga’s individuality

Ford Kuga fq

European Ford has been given a tough task, to inject a touch of style into some models coming from their American brothers. The latest offering is the now well dressed Ford Kuga. Inspired by the Iosis concept, the Kuga has a new body kit and 20-inch wheels plus a specialised interior for the Kuga Titanium that features Ebony Nappa and Bond leathers with contrasting piping and high-gloss Piano White fixtures.

Under the bonnet, the kuga has a all new 2.5-liter, 5-cylinder Duratec Turbo with 149kw and 236 lb-ft of torque that comes out of the Focus ST. This should breathe new life into the model and add some sportiness to the Kuga’s praticality. This gas engine is 47 kw up on the standard offering, the Duratorq TDCi diesel. Another first for the Kuga, it can be shifted with an optional 3-mode, 5-speed automatic transmission.

The new Individual program and powertrain options will be available from the beginning of 2009, and the first Kuga showcasing what customers will be able to do goes on display at this week’s Paris Motor Show.
