Ford Kuga

The Ford Kuga was an SUV sold in Australia between 2012 and 2016. It was then replaced by the largely identical Ford Escape.

The mid-sized Kuga was based on the Ford C1 platform sharing a chassis and components with the Ford Focus. It is not to be confused with the Ford Cougar sports coupe sold in Australia from 1999 to 2004.

Before its discontinuation, the Kuga ranged in price from POA for the Kuga Ambiente (AWD) to POA for the Kuga Ambiente (AWD).

The Kuga came to Australia to compete with cars like the Toyota RAV4, Honda CR-V and Mazda CX-5. Over two generations it was powered by either petrol or diesel powertrains, notably from its Australian launch with a 2.5-litre five-cylinder turbo shared with the Focus XR5 hot hatch.

This vehicle is also known as the Ford Escape.
