Ford has definitely been determined to show some serious redesigns for the upcoming year. Another model that has been on its way to hit the market as a 2019 Ford Kuga model is the latest Ford Kuga. The second generation of the Kuga model is expected to reveal some major refreshments and redesign in terms of design, technology and engine options.
When it comes to exterior of the 2019 Ford Kuga, this model is going to make its appearance as a mid-size SUV. This SUV has been known for its small dimensions, but the upcoming Kuga should appear bigger and better than its predecessor. It has been said that it will get a slightly longer wheelbase and it will be wider. This can only mean that you should expect some better stability and handling, but also more space inside its cabin. The new Kuga should ride on the Ford’s CD4 platform shared with the Fusion and the upcoming Escape model. The carmaker should use some lightweight materials in its chassis construction in order to save some weight. Therefore, this model will improve its overall efficiency and performance. The 2019 Kuga will appear more muscular and sporty. It should be available in three trim levels and several new body color choices. Most of the changes and updates should be noticed around the front fascia where you will notice its trapezoidal chrome grille that will be placed higher. It will also wear the LED headlights and xenon fog lights. The new Kuga will offer a choice of 17,18 and 19-inch wheels.
The interior of the 2019 Ford Kuga has been largely compared to some other Ford’s models such as Escape, Focus and Fiesta. Be that as it may, its cabin will definitely be modern and significantly improved than the one seen inside its predecessor. You should expect better equipment and serious updates in terms of materials, overall comfort and technology. The driver will get a modern dashboard with redesigned instrument cluster and an 8.0-inch touch-screen display with the latest SYNC infotainment system in the center console. It will provide features such as audio system, voice commands, Apple Car Play, Android Auto, Bluetooth, USB and Wi-Fi hotspot. The new Kuga will also include some advanced safety systems and driver assist features such as airbags, parking sensors, a rearview camera, electronic stability control and anti-lock braking system.
The base model of the 2019 Ford Kuga should come with a 1.5-liter Eco Boost engine that delivers 120 horsepower. Other option includes a 2.0-liter TDCI and it has been said that a 1.5-liter turbo-diesel will be available as well. The diesel option should produce the output of 130 horsepower and it will be more efficient and eco-friendly. The new Kuga should offer both a six-speed manual and automatic transmission, but we are waiting for more information.
