Though it may soon be one of the last Blue Oval ICE models on sale in Europe as the automaker transitions to an all-electric lineup in the coming years, the Ford Kuga remains a popular entity in that region, with the PHEV model ranking as its top-selling plug-in hybrid throughout 2022 and into early 2023. Ford also continues to tweak the Kuga lineup, recently adding the new ST-Line X Black Package and a more comfortable seat design for the crossover, and now, the Ford Kuga Graphite Tech Edition has debuted in Europe as well.
The Ford Kuga Graphite Tech Edition adds a host of unique visual upgrades and driver assist technologies to the crossover, changes that begin with an exterior color dubbed Gray Matter and multi-spoke, gloss black 19-inch alloy wheels. The special model is also equipped with the Styling ST-Line Pack as standard, which adds a rear spoiler, red-painted brake calipers, alloy pedals, and scuff plates.
Those that want a bit more style can opt for the Black Package, which adds that particular color treatment to the roof, mirror caps, front fascia vents, rear spoiler, and 20-inch alloy wheels. In terms of powertrains, the Graphite Tech Edition can be paired with the Kuga’s full lineup, including the hybrid, PHEV, EcoBoost, and EcoBlue diesel engines.
The “Tech” portion of the Graphite Tech Edition consists of the standard Driver Assistance Pack and Technology Pack, which add a bevy of features including a front camera, Adaptive Cruise Control with Traffic Sign Recognition, Blind Spot Information System (BLIS), Intelligent Speed Assist (ISA), driver impairment monitor, Active Park Assist, Full LED quad projector headlamps with Glare-Free High Beams, and a head-up display.
The Ford Kuga Graphite Tech Edition is available to order in Europe now, with the very first customer deliveries expected to take place this June.

Why can’t the 1.5 2.0 petrol version with automatic transmission be ordered in Europe?
This is incomprehensible.
I wonder if Ford improved the front seats with the new version. Too short seat and no profile.
