Ford Kuga Towing Capacity & Weight

Gary White   Author: Gary White


The new Ford Kuga has power and traction, is spacious and stable, but still shows small weaknesses compared to some of its competitors. There are a few models in the Kuga range but with up to 163 hp, 320 Nm torque, 2.1 tons of trailer load and affordable prices, the Ford Kuga is often seen as a good tow car for caravanners. It is therefore surprising that the newly designed Kuga only has a detachable trailer coupling with a difficult-to-use lock and a poorly accessible socket. When starting off, the Ford initially reacts with a delay because the gearbox engages in a way that is gentle on the material. Nevertheless, it pulls off reliably on inclines especailly with the permanent all-wheel drive diesel model.

The Ford Kuga has been in production since 2008 and is now available in its third generation. Consumers have a wide range of different engines to choose from in the second-generation models. From smaller petrol and diesel engines with front-wheel drive to powerful petrol and diesel engines with all-wheel drive, the range of engines is excellent.

The designation EcoBoost identifies the petrol engine, EcoBlue the diesel. With an output of 120 and 150 hp, the models are average. They all receive the Euro 6d emission class thanks to the low fuel consumption and low CO2 emissions. Particularly noteworthy are the innovative and environmentally friendly electric models. The Ford Kuga is available as a hybrid, plug-in hybrid and mild hybrid. While the battery of the plug-in hybrid can be charged via an external power source and the combustion engine, the hybrid and mild hybrid can be charged through regenerative braking (recuperation), rolling resistance and the conversion of combustion energy. The difference between the mild hybrid and the hybrid is that the hybrid can automatically switch between combustion and electric power or use both powertrains.

The Duratec Kuga models are called FHEV for the hybrid drive and PHEV for the plug-in hybrid drive. The designation MHEV identifies the mild hybrid vehicles. In addition to the traditional diesel and petrol engines, the range of engines for the third generation of the Ford Kuga has also offered models with hybrid, plug-in hybrid and mild hybrid drive since 2019.

Ford Kuga Towing Review

TL:DR : The latest Ford Kuga is a competent tow vehicle, although not an exceptional one.

It offers a more enjoyable driving experience compared to most of its competitors, although you can find more spacious cars for a similar price.

Undoubtedly, it's a reliable option for towing. While it faced challenges during the lane-change test, this issue likely stems from the tires on our test car rather than any major deficiencies in the Ford's design. At higher speeds, the Kuga demonstrates stability and security. Embarking on a long tow with the Kuga behind the wheel instills confidence, assuring a smooth journey without any nerve-wracking moments.

Acceleration with the Kuga is impressive as well. While the gearbox might occasionally require a gentle nudge to downshift, there's substantial power for towing suitably matched caravans.

This performance extends to regular driving, with the ST Line's sporty suspension offering agile cornering and minimal body lean. Continue Reading Review Here >>

If you are looking for the towing capacity for a Ford Kuga car then we're here to help. The towing capacity is a term used to describe the maximum weight of a trailer a Ford Kuga car can tow. There may be certain models of Ford Kuga car that cannot be used to tow a trailer. These will be highlighted with 'N KG' or 0KG in the below list of Ford Kuga towing weights.

We have detailed the Ford Kuga towing capacity for a braked trailer for those models of the car where towing is permitted (this is when the trailer being towed has its own breaking system). Check the Ford Kuga towing weight limit for the vehicle to make sure you are both safe and legal.

What Can the Ford Kuga Tow?
The Ford Kuga has a towing capacity of 1500kg when pulling a braked trailer (ie. a trailer with brakes). For a trailer with no brakes the limit is 750kg.

Is Ford Kuga a good tow car?
Yes, it is, especially for small to medium sized trailers like single horse trailers. Whilst the Ford Kuga can tow, but may not be the best among mid-sized SUVs. It performs well at 60mph and maintains stability even at higher speeds but some competitors like the Kia and the Toyota generally perform better on the road.

Where data is available, we have also listed the Ford Kuga's unbraked towing capacity in addition to its braked towing capacity.

Here is a full list of the Ford Kuga's unbraked and braked towing capacities. Send us a message if you can't find the Ford Kuga you're looking for, and then we'll add it to the list.
Whilst every effort has been made to ensure the towing weights provided on this website are accurate, we always recommend checking the vehicle log book (V5) for the official towing capacity. We accept no responsibility if the towing weights provided on this website are incorrect.

Ford Kuga Towing Review Continued

However, the sportier suspension setup does contribute to a firmer ride in the Kuga. On the whole, most drivers might prefer the more forgiving standard suspension.

The Ford Kuga lags behind certain rivals in terms of interior space. Passenger comfort is satisfactory, yet the trunk space is relatively confined.

If you prioritize abundant baggage room, the Honda CR-V is a better option.

In terms of pricing, the Kuga isn't exactly budget-friendly‚ÄĒespecially in ST Line configuration. However, research from What Car? indicates that substantial discounts are obtainable through negotiation.

Our experience of towing with the Kuga has been positive, yet it sits as a dependable contender rather than a frontrunner in its class.

Without modern technology and practicality, no one stands out in the highly competitive SUV market. What does the Ford Kuga have to offer? A lot. For example, there is a lot of space on the two-part sliding rear seat, behind which there is a trunk of between 475 and 645 litres.

Unlocked to a fast-level, 1,534 litres fit through the wide opening. With a load capacity of 403 kg in the trailer, the storage space can be well used.

The cockpit is familiar from the Focus: clear, quickly recognizable, ergonomic. However, the surfaces of the sports seats should be longer. The expensive trailer hitch swings in and out electrically and impresses with a top-reachable socket and rope release. On the other hand, the fact that Ford does not provide permanent-plus or charging lines is a great disappointment.

The two-litre diesel engine with 190 PS is married to all-wheel drive and automatic transmission. This would be a great thing if the transmission did not stir frequently in the torque converter, instead of delivering power. This brakes the engine more heavily than is known from other automatic cars.

The fact that the TDCI only consumes 11.2 litres with a two-ton trailer, speaks for its efficiency. The suspension is of the dry type and convinces more through its handling qualities than through its comfort. The distance control cruise control is not the most sensitive. The rear camera without specific trailer modes has a good view of the ball head.

The Kuga is a spacious car with standard all-wheel drive and automatic transmission.
