GENEVA: Ford to add new Kuga and Mondeo powertrains
At Geneva, Ford will display engine and gearbox enhancements to the Kuga, including a new 163PS version of the 2.0-litre Ford Duratorq TDCi diesel engine achieving a CO2 output of 159g/km in the All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) models with manual transmission (a 6% reduction compared to the previous 136PS engine).
The model also gains new efficiency advantages from the Ford Powershift gearbox, which lower CO2 emissions for the 140 and 163PS AWD diesel automatics to 179g/km.
The Mondeo also benefits from improved fuel economy and lower emissions combined with stronger performance thanks to new Ford EcoBoost petrol-injection turbo and upgraded Ford Duratorq TDCi diesel engines.
The Mondeo gains the all-new, high efficiency, turbocharged, 203PS 2.0-litre Ford EcoBoost SCTi petrol engine and significantly improved Stage V, 2.0-litre Duratorq TDCi diesels with 115PS and 140PS power outputs, plus a new 163PS version.
In addition, the Ford Powershift six-speed twin-clutch automatic transmission system comes to the Mondeo range, fitted as standard with the 2.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine and optionally available for the 140PS and 163PS Duratorq TDCi diesel engines.For more of the latest industry news, click here.
