The Ford Kuga, the Oval Blu’s SUV that changes face but above all electrifies, is completely renewed. Here is The Brand New 2020 Ford Kuga Hybrid
In a world that increasingly pursues electrification of the range, Ford could not miss it either. The 2020 Ford Kuga is a prime example, an SUV that has been presented in a completely new guise but above all offers itself in different hybridization steps. It will arrive in 2020, with many driver assistance systems.
2020 Ford Kuga Redesign & Changes
The 2020 Ford Kuga has also been renewed. Even the Ford Kuga has taken what are the latest styling features that we have already been able to appreciate about Ford. This is the best-selling Ford SUV, so it was obvious that they had to focus on innovation, especially considering a generational change that affected the model and not a simple restyling. So the shapes are more rounded and recall in part what we have seen on the new Fiesta (before) and Focus (after), especially in the area of the grille and headlights.
Much of the aesthetics is still derived from the Focus, which has certainly even more mature lines but above all dimensionally more similar than the Fiesta, but in this generation of Kuga the dimensions have increased: 8 cm more in length and 4 in width, therefore long and 4.62 meters wide and 1.88 respectively).
Interior & features
Even internment could only jump from a generation to high the 2020 Ford Kuga, which made a technology bath. Now, in addition to the latest generation SYNC system with lots of Android Auto and Apple Car Play, it boasts a second display: the instrumentation. Yes, the instrumentation is now a large 12.3-inch display with different themes and colors that can be set and that vary according to the chosen driving mode.
Controls and instruments are arranged as we have already appreciated on the Focus, even if the management of the spaces is different and the rear bench seat can also be moved by a few centimeters, so as to have more or less space for the legs and to gain or less 67 liters more capacity in the trunk.
2020 Ford Kuga Engine Specs
Under the hood, there is a great breath of fresh air for the Kuga. Not so much for diesel or petrol engines, which obviously remain in the range and are the 1.5-liter L’EcoBlue and 120 horsepower or 2 liters and 150 or 179 hp in the first case and the EcoBoost 1.5 liters from 120 or 150 hp in the second, but for hybrids.
It starts with a mild-hybrid version with the 2.0 hp 150 diesel with an electric motor that replaces the alternator but also goes to the full hybrid version with a 2.5-liter Atkinson cycle engine and an electric motor with lithium-ion batteries.
It closes in style with the plug-in hybrid version, with the same 2.5-liter engine but more powerful batteries and higher-performance electric motor, for a total of 225 hp. The batteries would recharge in 4 hours from the house outlet, thus guaranteeing around 50 km of autonomy in electric-only mode.
