The new Ford Puma ST marks the first Ford Performance SUV to launch in Europe. This athletic model is boldly styled and delivers exhilarating performance.
Motivated by a 1.5-liter EcoBoost—the same one found under the hood of the sporty Fiesta ST—the exciting-to-drive Puma ST serves up 197 horsepower and balances it out with impressive fuel economy. Performance is the top focus for the Ford Puma ST, which boldly wears an upgraded chassis with retuned dampers, a twist-beam, and anti-roll bars, as well as a limited-slip differential for a smoother ride.
Speaking of smooth, the new Ford Puma ST rides on Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires. Capable of reaching high speeds, the Puma ST benefits from 17% larger brakes and a 25% faster steering ratio.
But while we could talk about the Puma ST’s performance all day, one of its truly standout features that we find most exciting is its range of eye-catching exterior colors, including Mean Green, Desert Island Blue, and Fantastic Red.
For now, Ford has no plans to bring the Puma across the pond to here in the States (neither as the regular or ST variant). But if you’re ever in Europe on holiday and have your choice at the rental office, we highly recommend taking a spin in the Puma ST.
You find the rest of the Ford lineup right here at Tropical Ford in Orlando, Florida.
Ford recently launched its new Max Recline Seats for the Ford F-150, part of America’s best-selling pickup truck line for 43 years. These ergonomic seats make it easy for passengers to get comfortable, making the F-150 perfect for long shifts on a jobsite and family road trips.
These new available Max Recline Seats fold down to nearly 180 degrees for an almost flat lounging experience. According to Ben Kulhawik, a seat designer at Ford, the new Max Recline Seats were “inspired by those adjustable beds you see on TV.”
“We know the folks who work on construction or mining sites use their truck cab for naps during downtime, and we learned everyday owners do, too,” explained Jackie DiMarco, Ford truck product line director. “When I would take my daughters to hockey tournaments, between games, one would be sleeping in the back seat while the other would be on the floor of my truck, and it reinforced the idea that, ‘We need to fix this!’”
These seats are truly ingenious—and quite comfy. According to Ford, the design of the seats allows the seat bottom to rise to provide greater back support. You can also rotate the upper seatback forward to improve neck comfort.
You’ll be able to opt for the Max Recline Seats on the 2021 Ford F-150, specifically on King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited models.
