The Ford Kuga, 2016 already has a face of Mondeo (or at least that tells us his twin brother, the Escape)

The Ford range is still renovating, and it does so on two fundamental aspects to highlight. The first one, it jumps to the view, the grill double trapeze, stylish Ford Mondeo, continues to expand in the range. The second, to highlight in its interior, the integration of the new entertainment and navigation SYNC, which completely transforms the design of its dashboard to give it a more modern look, and of course more features for the driver and its passengers. The Ford Escape 2016 just been filed in Los Angeles, and while at the moment it is not, exactly, the european model, we know that this will be the look of the new Ford Kuga 2016.

Two new developments to highlight: the new design of grill-style Mondeo, and the premiere of the entertainment system, navigation and connectivity SYNC 3.

let us Remember that Ford began some years ago, a new strategy of global products, thanks to which the Mustang already is marketed in Europe without the need to resort to importers. That same strategy is the one that led Ford to unify the ranges Kuga and Escape in a single product. So the Ford Escape is from 2012, from its last generation, the same product in Europe know as the Ford Kuga, with some peculiarities for each market is more or less important.

The great novelty aesthetic, as I previously mentioned, we have in its huge chrome grille with design of double trapeze. Without a doubt, the new identity of this Ford Kuga, and the Ford brand in general.


In the united States opens the engine 1.5 Ecoboost, as the european will be close to the 180 HP of power. On the other side of the Atlantic it is also available with a motor 2.0 Ecoboost 245 HP and a 2.5 i-VCT.

Among the technologies is released, and that keeps this Ford Escape, stand out above all the driving aids:

  • adaptive cruise Control with warning of collisions and assistant emergency braking.
  • parking Assistant enhanced.
  • lane keeping System active.
  • Warning detection of driver fatigue.
  • Notice of dead angle Blind Spot Information System.
  • Wizard starting on a hill.
  • Connection automatic projector beam headlights.
  • Tailgate with opening hands-free.


The premiere of the new generation of entertainment, navigation and connectivity SYNC 3, involves the review of the aspect of your dashboard, it now gets a touch screen more intuitive and graphical. The Ford Escape 2016 will become the first Ford model to receive a connectivity system that allows you to locate your car from your mobile phone to check the autonomy and the level of fuel, and you can even open your doors remotely. We do not know if this system will also make its debut in Europe.

in the meantime, we will be left waiting to know more details of its european counterpart, the new Ford Kuga 2016. A model which in principle should follow the line of his twin brother american.
