The range of the Ford Kuga 2022 is extended with an important novelty. This balanced SUV does not neglect its more dynamic side and debuts an EcoBoost engine with greater power. We exclusively anticipate its first details.
The Ford Kuga is one of the most complete SUVs in the entire category, something that is reflected in a particularly wide mechanical range. What’s more, it offers the 1.5 EcoBoost petrol with 120 and 150 hp, the EcoBlue diesel of 120, 150, and 190 hp, in addition to the 150 hp MHEV light hybrid version, the 190 hp FHEV conventional hybrid, and the 225 hp PHEV plug-in. . In short, an impressive offering to rival the Citroën C5 Aircross, Hyundai Tucson, Kia Sportage, Opel Grandland X, Peugeot 3008, Renault Kadjar, Seat Ateca or Volkswagen Tiguan.
As if that were not enough, from LatestCarNews we have obtained the first details of a new mechanic that will delight the most demanding public. We refer to the 175 hp 1.5 EcoBoost turbocharged gasoline engine that is associated with an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
Although they have not yet transcended all its data, the new Ford Kuga 1.5 EcoBoost of 175 hp will be available in its version with front-wheel drive or even the AWD all-wheel-drive variant. The most curious thing? The brand approves the same average consumption in both cases: 7.5 liters / 100 km.
In short, the 2022 Ford Kuga 1.5 EcoBoost 175 hp, with the eight-speed automatic transmission, can be combined with various finishes, such as the luxurious Titanium and Titanium X or the sports ST-Line and ST-Line X -which have a specific body kit-.
According to the first official data that we have had access to, the new 175 hp automatic version would increase its rates by about 1,600 euros compared to the 150 hp Ford Kuga 1.5 EcoBoost -with a six-speed manual gearbox-. In the case of the all-wheel-drive version, the price would increase an additional 2,400 euros for the same finish.
At the moment, these rates are valid in Moldova, so we hope to be able to offer you more information very soon about the new Ford Kuga 1.5 EcoBoost 175 hp automatic in other European countries. Of course, this version will be very appealing for users who value a high level of performance.
