The American concern decided to deeply adapt its crossover to different markets. Already presented versions for Europe, the United States, and in turn for China. In fact, this is the third image of the same model.

Live photos of the new Ford Kuga for the local market have appeared in the base of the Ministry of Industry of China. Interestingly, the design of the car is different from the already presented Kuga / Escape models for other markets. A striking new grille, revised bumpers and new fog lights catch your eye. Moreover, the Titanium and ST-Line versions have a different design of these elements.

As the power unit for the Chinese version, 1.5- or 2.0-liter turbo engines will be used, capable of developing up to 174 and 248 horsepower, respectively. Together with them, an automatic transmission with eight stages will work. Four-wheel drive will be offered as an additional option.

 Already in the basic configuration, we can note the Co-Pilot360 corporate active safety complex. It includes up to 9 airbags, the already familiar automatic emergency braking system, adaptive cruise, blind spot sensors, all-round video surveillance, and a lane keeping system.

Sales should begin before the end of fall 2019. The price tag has not yet been announced.
