Ford’s medium cars’ brand manager Damian Oton has announced in an interview with Business Car that the new Kuga 4x4 crossover will be offered with only one diesel engine mated with a six-speed manual transmission starting May 2008.

"We know the Kuga will be a strong user-chooser product and we have made a conscious, strategic decision to have one body style, one engine (the 136PS, 2.0-litre TDCi) and the single six-speed manual transmission."

Kuga will be available only in two trim levels: Zetec and Titanium, and this is a very strange decision if we were to consider that it’s competitors will be available in many different choices. It will also be built only in 6000 to 8000 units a year.
