New Ford Puma ST

Ford’s First Performance SUV in Europe: New Puma ST Delivers Thrills for Your Heart with Utility for Your Head

 

  • Delivers 200 PS, 6.7-second 0-100 km/h acceleration
  • Unique-in-segment mechanical LSD option and drive modes from Eco to Track for ultimate versatility
  • First Ford Performance SUV in Europe features bespoke chassis: 40 per cent stiffer twist-beam than Fiesta ST counters higher centre of gravity
  • Bold sports styling in exclusive Mean Green
  • 19-inch alloys
  • Recaro seats

 

The New Ford Puma ST introduces acclaimed Ford Performance driving dynamics to the compact SUV segment for the very first time in Europe. Enhanced with sophisticated Sports Technologies including a unique-in-segment limited-slip differential (LSD) option and patented force vectoring springs, Puma ST also features selectable Drive Modes including Sport mode and – for the first time on a Ford Performance vehicle – Eco mode; providing drivers with options for a wide range of road driving scenarios.

 

The New Puma ST is powered by a 200 PS 1.5‑litre EcoBoost engine1 delivering 0‑100 km/h (0‑62 mph) acceleration in 6.7 seconds. An optimised chassis features bespoke twist-beam, anti-roll bar and damper configurations. Steering responses are 25 per cent faster and brakes 17 per cent larger than the standard Puma. Specially-developed Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tyres also help deliver the most agile Ford SUV driving experience yet.

 

Ford Performance worked alongside Michelin to develop a bespoke tyre specification to complement the Puma ST’s enhanced chassis, without sacrificing the refined ride quality – one of the most compelling SUV attributes.

 

The Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tyres can fully exploit the additional traction offered by the optional Quaife mechanical limited-slip differential, delivered as part of the available performance pack.

 

The NewPuma ST is the only small performance SUV in Europe to be offered with an LSD, which optimises front-end traction to enhance cornering ability and minimise understeer, in particular on the exit of corners.

 

The purely mechanical system distributes engine torque to the wheel with the most grip, reducing wheel spin and allowing the driver to fully exploit the engine performance.

 

The LSD option works alongside Torque Vectoring Control, which improves road-holding and reduces understeer by applying brake force to the inside front wheel when cornering. The balance between the two features has been fine-tuned by Ford Performance to optimise grip on dry surfaces and smoothness on wet surfaces.
