History of Ford Kuga
Ford launched their new compact SUV in 2007, which they named the Ford Kuga. The Ford Motor Company wanted to use the Kuga to carve a new path into the high-end SUV market, taking on competition from other global marques such as Nissan and Honda, who already had successfully ventured into this field. The Kuga was largely successful for Ford, particularly when it came to their strong range of diesel power options. Motoring press praised the latest Ford SUV for its driving style, similar to that of the Ford Focus, and felt that it offered up a competitive price tag when compared to some of the other options currently on the market. The Ford Kuga has been a popular vehicle for the global manufacturer, praised for its classy-feeling interior dashboard on higher spec models and its range of gutsy diesel engines. Ford also included plenty of clever tech features on the Kuga, including the ''hands-free tailgate'' feature on Titanium X models and upwards, which can be opened by waving a foot under the bumper.
Ford Kuga (2007 - 2012)
Ford launched the first generation Kuga in 2007, with it going on sale in the first half of the following year. This Mk1 vehicle was built at Ford''s plant in Saarlouis, Germany. With the launch of the Kuga Ford wanted to target the higher end of the SUV market. It emphasised this in the UK by offering only the Zetec and Titanium trim levels, forgoing the launch of a basic-level trim.
When it came to the engines the Kuga boasted a 2.5 L Duratec turbo l5, as well two 2.0 L Duratorq engines, one with 136ps and one with 163ps for 4x4 and powershift models. The Kuga was one of three SUVs currently offered by Ford, based on the same platform as the Focus hatchback. The Kuga allowed Ford to take on the like of the Nissan Qashqai, Mazda CX-5 and Honda CR-V, a market that has become incredibly popular with modern drivers.
In 2013 the Ford Kuga received a visual facelift, making more recent models bigger than the previous versions. 2014 saw a mechanically updated version of the Kuga, with which Ford saw a huge increase in the sales of diesel models - 95% of all customer sales in the UK. This model saw an updated engine range, with the 2.0 L four-cylinder engines available in two states of tune: 148bhp and 178bhp. Both of these engines were more powerful and offered better efficiency than engines before the mid-life facelift. Despite the popularity of the diesel engines Ford also update the petrol offerings, with a new 1.5-litre EcoBoost petrol.
Ford also found that their aims to appeal to a high end consumer with the Kuga vehicles was successful, with a lot of buyers option for the top spec models. This prompted Ford to launch the Titanium X Sport, a new flagship high quality trim. Below this sits the Titanium X and Titanium spec models, but even the entry level Zetec options were given 17 inch alloy wheels, keyless start, cruise control and hill assist.
