Ford Kuga at Frankfurt 2007

Inspired by the Iosis X concept that was revealed at the Paris Motor Show 2006, Ford has revealed their stylish Kuga SUV at Frankfurt 2007. Based on Ford’s latest ‘kinetic design’, the Kuga has a rugged yet neat and tidy profile, benefitting from strong Ford Focus lineage.

It is claimed to offer impressive on-road driving dynamics with substantial off-road ability – pretty much dual abilities of all good crossover vehicles these days. This new Ford SUV features 'intelligent' 4WD and FWD driveline powered by Ford's acclaimed 2.0-litre 136ps Duratorq TDCi diesel engine.

To be produced at Ford's Saarlouis plant in Germany, the Kuga is expected to go on sale early 2008 primarily in Europe - where it was designed in-house – and possibly later in other parts of the world with petrol engines instead.
