Ford Puma ST Powershift: Method Four

Bridge the gap – For versions with 125, 155 and 200 hp from Ford Puma It is joined by another model equipped with a 1.0 3-cylinder turbo petrol engine, again equipped with a 48-volt mild hybrid system and combined only with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission called Powershift. Maximum strength 170 hp at 5,750 rpm, with a torque of 248 Nm at 3,000 rpm.

1000 “pump” – New “Add” power Ford Puma ST Powershift 170 HP It was achieved thanks to a specific software tuning of the 1.0 engine and thus represents a less extreme variant of the Puma ST with its 200 hp 1.5 turbo. However, performance is respectable with acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.4 seconds and average fuel consumption declared by the manufacturer at 6.3 l/100 km (15.8 km/l).

Automatic only – automatic transmission for Ford Puma ST Powershift It has been optimized to offer fast gear changes, also thanks to the possibility to choose one of three driving modes: Normal, Eco and Sport. By choosing the latter, in addition to the better performance, you will be able to enjoy a distinctive sound, thanks to the active exhaust valve opening (in normal and eco mode it remains closed).

48 volt hybrid Mild hybrid system Ford Puma ST Powershift It is the same as that of other versions of the crossover and thus consists of a 48-volt lithium-ion battery pack and a belt-driven motor/generator connected to the engine (BISG), which is able to guarantee thrust during acceleration with an additional 10 hp.

Chassis with specific tuning – like the 200-horsepower Puma ST, that too Ford Puma ST Powershift 170 HP It could take advantage of a specific chassis tuning, which should ensure better dynamic quality. Hitachi shock absorbers with dual air chambers, are able to provide the stiffness needed for greater cornering control. Furthermore, the FVS (force vectoring spring) at the rear is asymmetrical, and once compressed, it also exerts a transverse force, rather than just a vertical force. This helps keep the wheel in the correct position since, with a torsion beam, in curves taken with a critical stance, this type of suspension will undergo reduction in the front of the wheels (resulting in less vehicle stability). The steering has also been improved and now offers an 11.4:1 ratio, about 25% faster than the regular Puma.
