Luxury Ford Kuga
Vignale on horizon
FORD has revealed the production version of the new Ford Kuga Vignale upscale SUV that will expand the Vignale product and customer experience when it goes on sale in Europe later this year.
The Ford Kuga Vignale has been shown in a pearlescent-metallic Vignale Milano Grigio exterior colour with Cashmere leather interior trim as part of an exclusive specification and will be offered with a range of powerful and efficient Ford EcoBoost petrol and TDCi diesel engines - and with intelligent all-wheel drive.
The Ford Kuga Vignale joins the new Ford S-MAX Vignale sports activity vehicle and Ford Edge Vignale large SUV as one of three new Ford Vignale models presented this year, following the introduction of the Ford Mondeo Vignale in 2015.
The Ford Mondeo and S-MAX Vignale are available to order now with the Edge Vignale due to arrive in late 2016.
Ford says each Kuga Vignale model will be hand-finished by craftspeople at the stateâofâtheâart Vignale Centre at Ford's manufacturing facility in Valencia, Spain.
The latest laser and camera technology supports the trained eye in closely examining every aspect of a Vignale vehicle from bodyshell and panel alignment to paint finish.
The new all-wheel drive system delivers a transition of torque between all four wheels to provide a more secure footing on the road especially in slippery conditions and can adjust torque delivery up to 50/50 between the front and rear wheels in under 20 milliseconds.
On offer will be four engines, petrol and diesel with outputs from 150bhp to 180bhp with manual and automatic transmissions to choose from plus the all-wheel drive model.
