Ford has announced plans to debut the new Ford Kuga and the production version of the Fiesta ST Concept on the eve of the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.
While Ford of Europe didn’t go into details, the new 2013 Kuga is expected to be completely identical to the new 2013 Ford Escape that debuted at the 2011 LA Auto Show. While three gasoline powertrains are offered in the United States, the European Kuga will obviously offer some diesel options.
The production version of the Ford Fiesta ST Concept will debut alongside the new Kuga. Power comes from a 1.6 liter turbocharged 4-cylinder EcoBoost making 177-hp. Mated to a 6-speed manual transmission, the Fiesta ST Concept goes from 0 to 60 mph in less than 7 seconds with a top speed of 136 mph.
Stay tuned for more from Geneva.
