COLOGNE, Germany – Ford has revealed the new Puma ST Powershift – introducing the most powerful version of Ford’s multi-award-winning 1.0‑litre EcoBoost engine ever.
Enhanced using 48-volt mild hybrid technology to deliver up to 170 PS peak power and 248 Nm peak torque, the multi-award-winning 1.0-litre engine is combined with a paddle-shift-operable, seven-speed, dual-clutch Ford Powershift transmission – seamlessly fusing energised driving experiences and everyday usability.
The new powertrain fully embraces the Sports Technologies moniker alongside existing performance-enhancing features from the optimised chassis of the 1.5-litre EcoBoost Puma ST – launched in 2020 – including bespoke twist-beam and anti-roll bar settings, and patented force vectoring springs.
Coupled with the compact SUV’s comfort, uncompromised interior space and innovative practical solutions including the Ford MegaBox, the versatile new Puma ST Powershift delivers responsive 7.4-second 0-100 km/h acceleration alongside 6.3 l/100 km fuel efficiency and 144 g/km CO2.
