Ford is bringing an old nameplate back to its lineup in a new way. Once upon a time, the Ford Puma was a sporty, compact coupe. Now, the company is breathing new life into the vehicle. Resurrected as a stylish subcompact, the Form Puma crossover will be making its debut onstage at the Frankfurt Auto Show this September.
The 2020 Ford Puma will feature a mild hybrid drivetrain. With a 1.0-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine, the crossover will reportedly generate 153 horsepower. All of this will be matched with a 48-volt lithium-ion battery pack. Currently, the Ford Puma’s powertrain has not yet been tested for fuel economy numbers.
The subcompact’s teaser image revealed exterior features such as an aerodynamic profile that exudes sportiness and a Mustang-inspired front grille. Aggressive headlamps and a 16-cubic-foot cargo bay behind the backseat are also offered on the Puma. More features will likely be revealed when the Puma is in Frankfurt later this year.
But the big question is: Will the Ford Puma crossover come to the U.S.? According to Ford representatives, the Puma isn’t coming stateside yet, but the growing popularity of the crossover market could eventually give it an in. Our team at Titus-Will Ford is definitely excited for this stylish, sporty crossover option and we hope to see it soon!
