Amazing girls born to be classy, wild 'n' free: hittin' the road
The Ford Kuga is a compact sport utility vehicle (SUV) produced by Ford since 2008. It is based on the C1 platform, that also forms the underpinnings of the Ford Focus and Ford C-Max. Both front-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive are offered.
The Kuga went on sale in the first half of 2008, and was built at Ford’s plant in Saarlouis, Germany. In the UK, emphasising the car’s premium market aspirations, only high-end Zetec and Titanium specifications are offered. The combined fuel consumption is 44.1 mpg‑imp (6.41 L/100 km; 36.7 mpg‑US) and the CO2 emissions are 169 g/km.
The second generation Kuga was primarily developed by Ford of Europe—developed under the “One Ford” policy which stipulates that Ford designs only one model in each segment to be sold globally. The name Ford Escape is used in North America, replacing the model of the same name there.

The third generation Escape is largely identical to the Ford Kuga. It was first shown at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show. Two EcoBoost inline four-cylinder turbocharged engines are offered. The basic engine is a 2.5-litre naturally-aspirated inline-four engine. The new Escape is the first Ford vehicle to offer a new 1.6-litre unit. In the process of revamping the Escape’s engine line-up, both the Hybrid model with its 2.5-litre Atkinson powertrain and the 3.0-litre V6 engine have been dropped. Ford claims that the fuel economy of the new 1.6-litre EcoBoost engine will match that of the previous Ford Escape Hybrid, while the new 2.0-litre engine produces more torque than the current V6 unit. The transmission is a six-speed automatic. The new generation of the Ford Escape is 10 percent more aerodynamic than the previous generation
