Ford has updated its line-up, which includes diesel engines being dropped from the majority of its passenger car range.
The most notable change is on the Kuga – one of Ford’s best-sellers and a hugely popular model in the family SUV class. The latest generation launched last year, with buyers having a choice of petrol, diesel and hybrid powertrains to choose from. However, as the demand for diesel cars drops, Ford has taken the decision to discontinue models powered by the fuel, with 1.5- and 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel engines only available on used examples.
A choice of petrol engines remain available, though, along with a standard hybrid and plug-in hybrid – the latter of which offers seriously impressive efficiency figures thanks to its 35-mile electric range. The electrified models in Ford’s line-up are also proving increasingly popular.
