Expanded Ford Puma line-up offers customers more choice

01.06.2020: Ford has further expanded the new Puma range with additional powertrain and equipment level options – offering the most comprehensive line-up yet for the SUV-inspired compact crossover.

Ford has further expanded the new Puma range with additional powertrain and equipment level options – offering the most comprehensive line-up yet for the SUV-inspired compact crossover.



Customers can now for the first time choose from Puma models equipped with a new seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, and a luxurious new Puma ST-Line X Vignale variant.



Ford has invested approximately €200 million at its state-of-the art manufacturing facility in Craiova, Romania, to support production of Puma, taking Ford’s total investment in Craiova to almost €1.5 billion since 2008.





Comprehensive powertrain line-up




A new seven-speed automatic transmission option for the 125 PS 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine delivers from 138 g/km and 45.6 mpg WLTP. Available from £22,945, the advanced transmission’s greater number of gear ratios and dual-clutch operation for seamless gear changes contribute to optimised fuel efficiency, refinement and driving dynamics.



Puma customers were from late last year among the first to benefit from Ford’s 48-volt mild hybrid technology for enhanced petrol fuel efficiency. Puma EcoBoost Hybrid powertrains are offered with two power outputs in combination with six-speed manual transmissions:




    125 PS 1.0-litre EcoBoost Hybrid delivering from 127 g/km and 49.6 mpg WLTP)
    155 PS 1.0-litre EcoBoost Hybrid delivering from 127 g/km and 49.6 mpg WLTP)




The six-speed manual 125 PS 1.0-litre EcoBoost delivers from 132 g/km and 47.9 mpg WLTP.





Luxurious Puma ST-Line X Vignale



Based on the sporty Puma ST-Line X variant, the Puma ST-Line X Vignale available from £25,240,  adds even more premium styling and specification. Unique details include exclusive 18” alloys, a satin aluminium upper grille and surround, ebony lower grille, and body-coloured lower rear bumper. Standard specification includes signature LED headlights, Windsor leather seats, wrapped instrument cluster, heated front seats, heated steering wheel and Ford KeyFree system.



Further Puma variants models including the Titanium, ST-Line and ST-Line X feature as standard innovative technologies including Ford’s Local Hazard Information, enabled by the FordPass Connect modem,* and the versatile Ford MegaBox storage solution, able to house unstable items up to approximately 115 cm tall – such as houseplants or golf clubs – in an upright position.



Earlier this month, Ford announced that a new Ford Performance Puma ST model will join the range later this year.





Quote


“Customers have told us that they want a range of options to help find a combination of style, equipment, performance and efficiency that’s just right for them. That’s something we committed to delivering with Puma, and with a new Puma ST coming later this year, we’re not finished yet.”

Roelant de Waard, vice president, Marketing, Sales & Service, Ford of Europe
