Engines and transmission Ford Kuga 2013

Gamma power units installed on the new crossover, consists of two petrol and two diesel engines, developed with engineers paid particular attention to the issue of cost-effectiveness.

Petrol motors belong to the family of modern Ford EcoBoost engines, equipped with turbochargers, systems of direct fuel injection and systems regulating phases:

Diesel engines are the corporate family турбонаддувных Duratorq TDCi engines:

Innovative solutions in the Ford Kuga 2013

For a start the robotic checkpoint PowerShift, which is able to pre-select the following transfer, while minimizing the loss of power and speed when switching. Extremely fast and smooth transition from one show to another makes driving incredibly enjoyable and provides substantial fuel savings and reduction of amount of harmful emissions into the atmosphere. The intelligent system automatically selects the optimum gear, depending on the current situation. For example, when making overtaking, it can include a lower gear, thereby provides a lot of power for faster acceleration and guaranteed safe completion of the maneuver.

When managing Ford Kuga crossover with the manual transmission is extremely useful it can be gearshift indicator, located on the dashboard. He determines the optimal time to move on to the next transfer, thanks to that driving becomes more efficient.

Another innovation system aimed at saving fuel, received the name Ford Eco Mode. It takes into account the speed with which the car is traveling, the most frequently selected transmission, manner braking length of trips and other factors, on the basis of which gives tips to reduce fuel consumption in accordance with the style of driving a particular driver.

Intelligent all-wheel drive system, which is equipped with Ford Kuqa new 2013 model year, manages to twenty times to assess the situation on the road for the short time, a person is required to bat my eye. Thus there is a constant redistribution of torque between the wheels for optimal handling and ultimate traction with the road surface. It is worth noting that the system is only activated when it is really needed, so on relatively flat and straight roads crossover actually goes for the FWD mode, makes it possible to substantial fuel savings.

Invaluable assistance to the driver has and systems Curve Control, which compares the actual speed of the vehicle with the right in a specific point of rotation and makes adjustments to it in case of deviation from the norm. This is done on the basis of information received from sensors of vehicle speed, lateral roll, lateral acceleration, wheel speed and steering angle. All the data are analysed hundred times every second, and if the motion path is incorrect, Curve Control begins to its amendment by braking of each of the wheels individually, giving them a variety of brake efforts. When entering a turn at too high a speed of this system is able to reset approximately 16 km/h every second.

Ford engineers fruitfully and worked on the issue of reduction of noise from road and wind, resulting in the beauty Kuga second generation can safely lay claim to being one of the quietest in its class. This achievement was possible due to special aerodynamic design of the side mirrors, more stringent door frames, new seals, more thick glasses and modernization of chassis components. Eliminates noise and turbulence also promotes special deflector ClimAir you do not close the Windows on the front doors even in the rain.
