Back in June of last year, Ford asked its fans to help name and design a brand new Puma ST Special Edition, helping to select features including paint colors, decals, brake caliper color, seatbelt stitching, and exterior badge options. Just a couple of weeks later, the automaker revealed the end result of that exercise – the Puma ST Gold Edition, which was created with the input of 275,000 eager fans. The resounding popularity of this limited-edition model has also now prompted The Blue Oval to trickle the same treatment down to the Ford Puma ST-Line Gold Edition, which has just been revealed.
The Ford Puma ST-Line Gold Edition follows the same basic pattern set forth by the ST Gold Edition, though it’s available in two different color combinations – Agate Black with matte black and Gold Aurora stripes, or a lighter Grey Matter paint with white stripes. Either way buyers go, each version comes equipped with special 18-inch Gold Aurora alloy wheels.
Gold Aurora also makes appearances in numerous places throughout the interior, including on the the Sensico-trimmed handbrake and gearshift gaiter. The ST-Line Gold Edition comes equipped with plenty of tech features including an 8-inch infotainment screen running Sync 3, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, and a wireless charging pad, too.
In terms of performance, this special edition comes equipped with the turbocharged Ford 1.0L I-3 EcoBoost engine that produces 153 horsepower, which can be mated to either a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed automatic gearbox. That won’t thrill in the same manner as the ST’s turbocharged Ford 1.5L I-4 EcoBoost that produces 197 horsepower, but that’s precisely the point of the ST-Line model – provide all the sporty looks as the ST, but without the added performance.
