Ford Kuga Engine Oil Finder

With the third generation of the Ford Kuga, which went on sale in 2019, there were a number of noteable changes with rounded contours on the outside compared to the previous model, which presented its off-road look even more angular and raw. While the design change from the first generation (2008-2012) to the second generation (2012-2019) only included a moderate change of the front, the third generation now available brings a completely new, more delicate and elegant design.

With the Kuga you have the choice between diesel and petrol engines as well as a mild hybrid system. All-wheel drive is only available in conjunction with the 190 hp 2.0 EcoBlue diesel, where it is standard.

The Kuga is available as a diesel with a displacement of 1.5 litres or 2.0 liters. The EcoBlue diesel thus delivers 120, 150 or 190 hp. With the 1.5 liter you have the choice between a 6-speed manual and the 8-speed automatic transmission. The 150 hp 2.0 EcoBlue is a mild hybrid system that is only available with manual transmission, while the top engine always comes with an automatic transmission. With petrol as the fuel type, there is only one engine to choose from with two different performance variants. Here you decide between 120 and 150 hp. An automatic transmission is not available for the petrol engines.

The equipment lines Trend, Titanium, ST-Line, Titanium X, ST-Line X and Vignale can be ordered for the Kuga. There is also the special model Cool & Connect.

Motor oil is a vital part of your Ford Kuga's engine. It provides the much needed lubrication to many of the internal parts of an engine. One of its key job is to prevent wear and tear on the moving parts and helps keep the engine running smoothly. Without oil, the engine would cease up almost immediately.

Regularly checking and changing your Ford Kuga engine oil is really important. Every time you start and run your car, very fine by-products from the combustion in the engine will be collected in the engine oil. This is one of the reasons why over time the oil goes black. If these contaminants build up too much and exceed the capacity of the oil it can have a negative impact on your car’s overall efficiency and actually effect its performance as it creates sludge and increased wear in the engine block.

Every engine oil will have its viscosity grade labelled on the packaging. This will look something like 0W-20, 5W-30 or 5W-40. This grading is used to measure how thick / fluid the oil is and help ensure you buy the right oil for your car. The lower the viscosity grade of the oil, the more fluid and thinner it will be than those with a high grade (higher numbers) which will be much less running and thick.

So which engine oil should you buy for your Ford Kuga? Whether you are topping up your Ford Kuga oil or doing a full change of your Ford Kuga's oil it is really important that you use the correct grade of oil.
