It has been announced that the Ford Puma ST with a new Powershift 2 automatic transmission is coming soon.
The new Puma ST Powershift 2 introduces the most powerful version ever of the award-winning 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine, adding 48-volt mild hybrid technology for 170 PS power and improved fuel efficiency. The added seven-speed Powershift gearbox, makes light work of city or stop-start driving with automatic gear-changes, while also featuring paddle shifters behind the steering wheel so that drivers can take control when they want.
You will still get all the same features that make the original Puma ST fun to drive, including Drive Modes to change the steering and acceleration response, plus high-specification suspension for sharp responses and cornering.
Head-turning looks also remain standard, boosted by a new ST-exclusive Azura Blue colour option and 19-inch alloy wheels. Eye-catching Ford Performance bumpers, rear spoiler and diffuser aren’t just for show – they increase aerodynamic performance too.
There’s no compromise in practicality either. The new Puma ST Powershift features the innovative MegaBox – a space below the boot floor that means the versatile SUV is capable of carrying two sets of golf clubs standing upright in the boot.
