ford kuga website

More news about the upcoming Ford Kuga, which is set to make its local market debut sometime in June. A new webpage has opened up on the the Ford Malaysia website for the SUV, which will arrive in 1.6 litre EcoBoost form. Not much in the way of specs as yet, rather teaser elements are to be found.

The Kuga’s turbo mill will offer 180 PS and 240 Nm, mated to a six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission which has revised gear ratios and a new torque converter for improved driving feel and smoother shifts.

The sole trim variant we’ll be getting will be the Titanium, but this one will mix elements of the Trend line as found in some overseas markets. Plenty of tech on call as standard fare, from a segment-first hands-free tailgate, in which simply sweeping a foot under the rear bumper allows the opening or closing of the rear tailgate automatically, Torque Vectoring Control and AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control & Curve Control, among others.

Meanwhile, following the first one seen last month, another ad has appeared on our sister site, oto.my, touting the Kuga, with pricing anticipated to be in region of RM165,000 to RM168,000. Four colours are listed, these being Frozen White, Moondust Silver, Panther Black and Ginger Ale, which happens to be the colour of the example in the photos.
