New Ford Puma 2020: Concept, Specs & Release Date – In the book of the route of new releases of Ford, takes protagonism a hypothetical Puma, a new compact SUV that would take many elements of the technical platform of the current Focus. Here you have the first data.
Ford is currently reviewing its range of automobiles. In its new strategy, SUVs and crossovers will gain even more prominence. As proof, the next launch of the new Bronco, the new generation of the Kuga and the already called “Baby Bronco”, whose commercial name could be Puma.
Base on Focus
Months ago, Ford officially registered the names “Timberline” and “Maverick. ” In past information, we already detailed that these names could correspond to a new SUV type model. Well, the oval firm recently registered the new Puma appellation in the patent offices of New Zealand and Australia. At the time of registering the name Puma, Ford indicated that it would be a new model SUV type and with the possibility of having four-wheel drive. According to various digital media and according to the information published by our German colleagues of auto motor und sport, this new Ford SUV that would respond to the name of Puma would be based on the current Focus platform.
The Puma appellation is not new to Ford’s history. In fact, the American firm already used it years ago to name a sports coupe, a model that was in production from 1997 to 2002.
Ford Puma Platform
The New Ford Puma will be based on a new modular platform of front traction and engine (with the possibility of equipping all-wheel drive, according to versions), whose main and first representative has been the new Focus released this year 2018. It will be in 2020 when the definitive production version of the new Puma could be ready.
This platform for medium or compact Ford vehicles will be one of the main oval manufacturers. In the plans of the North American company is to reduce the number of platforms, from the 30 that had until now to only 9, and the Focus platform, Puma and new generation of the Kuga will be one of the most important in the short future and medium term.
Regarding initial technical data of how the New Ford Puma 2020 could be, for the moment there is no information about it, although it is already speculated that its size will be similar to the Kuga that is currently being marketed in Europe (this compact SUV measures 4, 52 m long). For this reason, it is more than likely that the new Kuga slightly gives the sport is its external dimensions to differentiate from the Puma.

By sharing elements with the New Focus, it is more than likely that the future Ford Puma will inherit a large part of its mechanical elements, with the new generation EcoBoost turbo petrol engines of 1.0 and 1.5 liters of displacement and the new Diesel 1.5 EcoBlue. At the level of equipment, the future Puma will surely incorporate a large part of the safety systems and driving assistants included in the Co-Pilot360 technology.
