Meet the production Ford Kuga

We got our first look at the Ford Kuga in concept form at September's Frankfurt Motor Show and it looks like the production model won't be straying very far, stylewise. The Kuga should land in European Ford dealerships in spring 2008 powered by a variety of engines, including Ford's latest 2.0L turbodiesel. With the Escape bearing much more of a resemblance to Ford's truck lineup, if the team in Dearborn really wants the Mercury Mariner to be more upscale they would bring this design over as its replacement.

I love the Kuga, but, GM is ahead of Ford, its got all bases covered, from the 3 row chevy, to the top of the range Antara (not antata

Remember this Kuga interior is near production not actual. that dash has alot of current Focus in it. Not a bad thing

This is the top of the range Antara. If anyones dinner is going to be had by Kuga its the Japanese Dinner, from the bloated Rav 4, which is too fat for Europe to the wacky CR V. Already the Vue is feasting on those sales here in the US.
