Along with the EcoBoost petrol engine, Kuga offers Ford's proven 2.0L Duratorq turbo-diesel which develops 120kW & 340Nm is available in all-wheel drive Trend & Titanium models. Kuga's features & technologies including Ford's Intelligent AWD system, an innovative 'Open sesame' hands-free, powered tailgate, which operates with a foot sweeping motion under the rear bumper & Ford SYNC. Kuga's Intelligent AWD sys can pre-emptively assess road conditions 20-times faster than it takes to blink an eye, adjusting the all-wheel-drive power split to give the driver the best blend of handling & traction. The primary goal of the AWD system at low speed's is traction, at speed's above 30km/h the AWD system is tuned to improve driving feel, handling & responses. A unique cluster display shows drivers the torque demand of each wheel at any moment. In addition to the intelligent AWD system, Ford's Torque Vectoring Control acts as a safeguard for driver's who have entered a bend with too much speed. The system mitigates against severe understeer by aggressive braking & can if the driver is still pushing their foot down on the accelerator, also reduce engine torque.
