Geneva: 2013 Ford Kuga presented image

The North American based automaker Ford has recently presented the new generation of the Kuga crossover during the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.

After the 2013 Ford Kuga has been teased and spied, the new generation of the model has been finally presented to the public at the Geneva Motor Show, revealing a look very close to the US-sped Escape, with its aggressive front fascia, prominent air vents and slender grille. The cabin on the new generation of the Ford Kuga is coming with metallic accents and black trim, showing an increased size which is also translated into the additional 82 liters (2.9 cubic feet) added to the luggage space.

“Innovative technologies like the hands-free automatic tailgate clearly set new Kuga apart from its competitors. But more importantly they provide customers with everyday advantages. All-new Kuga is more spacious, dynamic and capable than the current model, which continues to be popular with our European customers”, as the Ford of Europe’s chairman and CEO, Stephen Odell, said.

The 2013 Ford Kuga will be offered at launch with a 2.0 liter TDCi diesel engine, which is coming with two outputs of 138 horsepower and 161 horsepower, and the lineup will be extended by a 1.6 liter EcoBoost unit, which will develop approximately 173 horsepower. The all-wheel drive system on the model has also been improved but more details about this, along with the price tag, will be announced closer to its launch.
