Introducing the next generation of Ford Performance. The New Ford Puma ST is our first ever performance SUV in Europe, created with the signature fun-to-drive DNA of the Ford ST range.
The New Puma ST is available with four Selectable Drive Modes: Normal, Eco, Sport and Track. Each setting fine-tunes the car’s performance by modifying engine mapping, throttle and steering response, as well as traction and stability control settings. So you can tailor your drive to any setting while key information is displayed via the 12.3” digital instrument cluster.
Engineered for the pure joy of driving. The New Puma ST is the optimum balance of exhilarating performance and remarkable efficiency. The potent 1.5-litre turbocharged Ford EcoBoost engine delivers 200 PS, with 320 Nm of torque, and is capable of 0-62 mph in just 6.7 seconds.
The Puma ST includes some ingenious modifications so that none of the fun-to-drive dynamics of ST are compromised by the increased ride height of its SUV platform. Enhancements such as an added torsion bar and stiffer rear twist beam counterbalance the SUV model’s higher centre of gravity to ensure stability. While uniquely tuned suspension springs increase lateral stiffness for sharper cornering.
The Puma ST features striking, race inspired RECARO front sports seats, with contrast Metal Grey stitching and an embossed Ford ST logo. The retentive Miko Dynamica material trim grips you firmly in place, while the seats are ergonomically designed to fit you perfectly, moulding you to every movement of the road.
The New Puma ST features a braking system optimised for performance, including larger front and rear disc components than on other Puma models, for greater stopping power.
Modern living often requires an inventive approach to how you occupy space. With best in class uncompromised rear load space capacity, the Ford Puma embraces this way of thinking.
Aside from stylish flair and commanding presence, Puma’s beautifully-sculpted exterior is balanced with thoughtful functionality. Delivering real versatility within the details of its design.
Ford SYNC 3 is a state-of-the-art system that enables you to stay connected and control your phone, music and navigation system with natural voice commands. You can even call up a list of local restaurants just by saying “I’m hungry”. It can read out your text messages too. The colour touchscreen features pinch-and-swipe gestures for intuitive navigation. SYNC 3 also connects to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and with AppLink, you can access some of your favourite smartphone apps.
Whatever your taste in music, it deserves to sound as the artist intended. That’s exactly what you can expect from the new Ford Puma. Why? Because it’s available with B&O. A premium level 575-watt audio system has been designed and fine-tuned for Puma by specialist B&O sound engineers. This rich, powerful 10-speaker set-up includes a subwoofer cleverly incorporated within the rear bulkhead, so that none of the Puma loadspace is compromised. So, turn it up and enjoy your favourite bands and songs in the concert hall that is your car’s cabin.
Developed for use on the track and available as part of the optional Ford Performance Pack, Launch Control allows you to maximise acceleration off the line for consistently fast standing starts. Set the maximum rpm for the engine and the system will ensure you won’t accidentally over-rev when pressing the throttle. (Part of optional Performance Pack.)
Ford Co-Pilot360 combines a range of technologies that, together, work to make your driving experience more comfortable and more enjoyable than ever. For example, Adaptive Cruise Control automatically adjusts your cruise control speed based on the vehicle ahead. The system can even recognise speed signs and adjust your cruise control speed accordingly.
Ford Puma is available with the FordPass Connect† modem. The system provides a range of invaluable benefits, including up to 4G LTE WiFi for up to ten devices, and real-time traffic updates delivered straight to your in-car satnav. Local hazard information, displayed as warning symbols in your instrument cluster, advises you of any obstacles you may be approaching. And in the event of an accident, FordPass Connect will even place an eCall†† to the emergency services providing your vehicle’s location. Download the FordPass app to access even more features. For example, you can use your phone to locate your vehicle, lock and unlock it remotely. You can monitor fuel level, mileage and tyre pressure, and get vehicle health alerts direct to your phone.
Adaptive Cruise Control adjusts your cruise control speed based on the vehicle ahead. Simply enter the desired speed and distance from the vehicle in front, and Adaptive Cruise Control will automatically maintain the set distance if traffic conditions do not allow travel at the desired cruising speed.
The Blind Spot Information System uses radar sensors to see vehicles that may be hidden in your blind spot. They’re situated on either side of your Puma ST and alert you with an orange light, clearly displayed in the side door mirror.
Whether the signs are at the side of the road or above it, permanent or temporary, Traffic Sign Recognition can identify them. Icons for speed limits and no-overtaking signs are displayed on the instrument cluster, alerting you to changing restrictions.
Bollards, bicycles, low walls… The rear-view camera shows what’s behind you on a screen built into the centre console. As well as revealing objects you might miss, the system displays virtual lines to help you park into the smallest of spaces. The camera activates automatically when you select reverse gear.
Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection uses camera technology to scan the road ahead. If a collision risk with a vehicle, pedestrian or cyclist is detected, it’ll then provide a warning. If you don’t respond in time, the system can automatically apply up to full braking force to help reduce the severity of, or even eliminate, some frontal collisions.
Hands-free tailgate makes access to your Puma load compartment easy, even when your hands are full. With your KeyFree key fob in your pocket or bag, simply use a gentle foot movement under the centre of the rear bumper and the hands-free tailgate will operate without you having to touch a thing. It can also be opened and closed while sitting inside the car.
