The Ford Kuga Vignale is presented in pearlescent-metallic Vignale Milano Grigio exterior colour with Cashmere leather interior trim as part of an exclusive specification, delivers meticulous craftsmanship and will be offered with a range of powerful and efficient Ford EcoBoost petrol and TDCi diesel engines – and with Ford Intelligent All Wheel Drive.
The new Ford Kuga Vignale is based on the Ford Kuga mid-size SUV revealed for the first time at the 2016 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.
The upscale model’s unique Vignale pearlescent Milano Grigio exterior colour is influenced by rose metallic tones, and complemented with dark gloss effect finishes for the front and rear skid plates, door appliques and boot trim. The signature Vignale hexagonal grille design features at the front.
The premium character of the Ford Kuga Vignale interior is further heightened with unique hexagonal-quilted Windsor leather featuring prominent tuxedo-style stitching for the seats and door interiors, offered in signature Cashmere colour. The upscale leather treatment also extends to the instrument panel.
Each Kuga Vignale model will be hand-finished by master craftspeople at the state‑of‑the‑art Vignale Centre at Ford’s manufacturing facility in Valencia, Spain.The latest laser and camera technology supports the trained eye in closely examining every aspect of a Vignale vehicle from bodyshell and panel alignment to paint finish.
Passionate about precision and attention to detail, experts spend more than two hours hand‑polishing the paintwork to create the perfect high-gloss finish; and also carefully scrutinise the fine detailing and stitching of laser-cut pieces of interior leather trim.
Powerful and fuel-efficient Ford Kuga Vignale powertrain options include:
◾150PS 1.5-litre EcoBoost with six-speed manual transmission
◾182PS 1.5-litre EcoBoost with six-speed automatic transmission and Intelligent All Wheel Drive
◾150PS 2.0-litre TDCi with six-speed manual transmission
◾180PS 2.0-litre TDCi with six-speed manual transmission or six-speed Powershift automatic transmission, both with standard Intelligent All Wheel Drive
Ford’s Intelligent All Wheel Drive system delivers a seamless transition of torque between all four wheels to provide a more secure footing on the road especially in slippery conditions and can adjust torque delivery up to 50/50 between the front and rear wheels in under 20 milliseconds – twenty times quicker than it takes to blink.
