Ford today presented the updated crossovers Ford Puma 2024 and Puma ST 2024. The good news is that the improved Sync 4 media system has appeared, the bad news is that the Ford Puma has lost its 1.5-liter engines. And this, naturally, affected the power.
More precisely, the 2024 Ford Puma has lost its 1.5-liter turbodiesel. The ST version lost its 197-horsepower 1.5-liter turbocharged gasoline engine and manual gearbox – these units were replaced with a 1.0-liter 168-horsepower gasoline engine, working in conjunction with a 7-speed “robot.” The 2024 Ford Puma ST is a mild hybrid (there is a 48-volt starter-generator), the crossover accelerates to 100 km/h in 7.4 seconds – 0.7 seconds slower than the 2023 version with a 1.5-liter motor. In general, the Puma ST is no longer an ST.
The regular version of Puma has the same liter gasoline engine, but less boosted – it produces 123 hp. and is combined with either a 6-speed manual transmission or a 7-speed robot. Acceleration to 100 km/h is 9.8 or 9.6 seconds, respectively.
Externally, the subcompact crossover has not changed much – a new radiator grille and new matrix headlights have appeared. Buyers can choose from six colors, wheel sizes range from 17 to 19 inches.
The main innovation in equipment is the relatively new Sync 4 media system. The digital instrument panel includes a 12.8-inch diagonal screen, and the infotainment system is content with a 12-inch display.
