Ford gives popular Puma a refresh
The Ford Puma has been given a refresh, with the popular crossover benefiting from styling enhancements and fresh infotainment tech.
Ford also confirmed that an all-electric Puma model will be arriving later in the year. Here’s what you need to know.
Ford Puma styling
Externally, not much has changed. And considering the Puma’s popularity, that’s understandable; why mess with a winning formula? The eagle-eyed will note a revised set of bumpers and a more curvaceous grille design.
The headlights have also benefited from a refresh, incorporating a new lighting signature. Other changes are even less dramatic, although there’s a range of new alloy designs to choose from and the rear bumper has been tweaked.
You’ll be able to pick from four trim levels including Titanium, ST-Line, ST-Line X and ST. ST-Line models feature slightly chunkier body trim pieces along with specific 17in alloy wheels and automatic headlights.
Ford Puma interior and tech
The big change is on the inside, where a redesigned dashboard now features a very different infotainment system; it’s still a floating design, but the air vents have been moved above the screen and incorporated into a panel with the digital driver display.
The 12in touchscreen system is larger than the outgoing model, and it now controls several other functions such as the climate control. Another obvious change is the steering wheel – it features a new two-spoke design, and it all comes together to give the Puma’s dash a much more modern look.
The system is standard on all models, while the ST Line X model adds etch like wireless charging, a power tailgate and keyless entry. Range-topping ST models also add adaptive cruise control and a 360 parking camera.
Ford Puma drivetrains
The same 1.0-litre petrol engine as before remains, with 125hp, 155hp and 170hp versions available. The most potent ST model is now only available with an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
The biggest news is arguably the confirmation that we can expect an all-electric Puma to launch soon. Touted to be called the Gen-E, we’ll have to wait for further details on this all-new model, although it’ll likely launch shortly after the Explorer as the next part in Ford’s move towards electric power.
