Ford Kuga gets new ST-Line pack

Business Day - Motor News - - MOTOR NEWS - Phuti Mpyane Pric­ing:

Ford Mo­tor Com­pany has an­nounced ad­just­ments to its ex­ist­ing Ford Kuga SUV line-up in SA.

The re­vi­sions see the Ti­ta­nium spec­i­fi­ca­tion dropped in favour of the new ST-Line for the pair of range-top­ping 2.0l Eco­Boost and TDCi mod­els. STLine is iden­ti­fied by a high-gloss Ebony Black front grille in­te­grated with a hon­ey­comb de­sign for the lower por­tion of the grille.

There’s also a colour-coded body kit with front skid plate, side skirts, mir­rors, door han­dles, rear spoiler and wheel arches, Ebony Black rear dif­fuser, black roof rails, tinted front and rear lights and pri­vacy glass for the rear win­dows.

ST-Line also fea­tures chas­sis en­hance­ments for bet­ter han­dling thanks to thicker an­tiroll bars, a 10mm drop in ride height and stiffer sus­pen­sion bushes.

The 2.0 TDCi pro­duces 132kW and 400Nm chan­nelled through an All Wheel Drive sys­tem and six-speed Pow­erShift Au­to­matic gear­box. The range­top­per is the 177kW and 340Nm 2.0 Eco­Boost ST-Line and boasts an AWD sys­tem and a six-speed torque con­verter au­to­matic trans­mis­sion.

Doreen Mashinini, GM, mar­ket­ing at FMCSA, says: “At the pin­na­cle of the range, the stun­ning new ST-Line gives the Kuga the eye-catch­ing de­sign and dy­namic flair to match the su­perb per­for­mance of the 2.0litre petrol and diesel mod­els.”

A new 1.5 TDCI de­riv­a­tive is pow­ered by an 88kW tur­bod­iesel en­gine matched to ei­ther a six-speed man­ual gear­box or six-speed au­to­matic. 1.5 Eco­Boost Am­bi­ente FWD 6MT R384,900 1.5 Eco­Boost Am­bi­ente FWD 6AT R398,500 1.5 TDCi Am­bi­ente FWD 6MT R426,200 1.5 Eco­Boost Trend FWD 6AT
