In case you're unfamiliar with the Ford
Kuga, it's a small CUV sold in Europe that should have replaced the Escape back in 2007, but Ford ditched the idea due to the high dollar-Euro exchange rate. Now that a new Kuga is in development and is based on the same platform as the upcoming 2012 Focus and Grand C-Max, Ford is also considering to develop a new Lincoln
Kuga-based premium small CUV. The currently unnamed Lincoln is being positioned to compete against the Lexus RX
in terms of both size and packaging.
