The Ford Kuga has had my attention for years.
The Europe-only crossover was one of the cars that ended up on my list anytime I complained about the cool cars not available in the United States but sold across the pond. In contrast to the clunky and boxy U.S. Ford Escape, the Kuga is sleek and good-looking and has better fuel economy. Why on Earth has it not been available here?
There are lots of reasons, but now, Ford has finally decided that customers on this side of the Atlantic are sophisticated enough for the Kuga. We’ll know it here as the all-new Ford Escape, but it’ll always be a Kuga to me.
