PERFORMANCE

Go the distance, and then some.

That’s a given with EcoBoost technology. But so too is the power to put more time between you and your next visit to the fuel pump. Fuel-saving technology and design ensure every single drop of fuel takes you further. So you can drive more and refuel less.

EcoBoost® Petrol engine3

EcoBoost engine technology turns traditional petrol engine thinking on its head. It delivers small engine fuel economy and big engine power in one. So you don’t have to compromise on either, thanks to an advanced combination of twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT), turbocharging and direct fuel injection technologies. Ford Kuga MkII offers you the choice of two EcoBoost engines; 110kW 1 in Ambiente or 178kW 1 in Trend and Titanium models. To fully enjoy the engine’s responsiveness, the ‘sport mode’ automatic transmission lets you switch to ‘manual mode’ so you can work the gears – without the clutch.

TDCi

Our 2.0L TDCi diesel engine works with our 6-speed automatic transmission to deliver performance and fuel economy. Dual-clutch technology gives you the responsiveness of a manual with the ease of an automatic. It pre-selects the next gear so each change is so smooth it’s barely noticeable.

Active Grille Shutter2

Another way we reduce aerodynamic drag is via the Active Grille Shutter. Located behind the grille, the shutter only opens when the engine needs cooling and closes when it doesn’t, so less air travels through the radiator. Less drag means less fuel is required to propel the car forward.
