Ford Kuga’s Clean Frugal EcoBoost Engine Wins In All Areas
The Ford Kuga comes with a 1.6-litre EcoBoost petrol engine that provides outstanding performance, with 180PS of power generated producing a maximum 240Nm of torque with the assistance of an all new 6-Speed Auto gearbox. This engine combines EcoBoost core technologies of direct fuel injection and turbocharging and adds twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT) to deliver even better fuel efficiency and save Kuga owners money. In the Ford Kuga, this all new petrol engine fuel consumption has been reduced by 25 percent. The gearbox combines the convenience of an automatic with the control of a manual, this six-speed, dual-clutch automatic gearbox pre-selects the next gear for you, so you don’t lose any power when you change. PowerShift’s lightning fast; seamless gear changes not only make driving smoother and more pleasurable, but also save fuel and reduce CO2 emissions when compared to a normal automatic gearbox.
