Back in 2020, I bought a Ford Puma, not long after Ford had released it. Now, 2 years later, I have the newest edition.
Each time I’ve bought the highest specified model that I could but that has shifts in the last 2 years – e.g. the Vignale range for the Puma has been released, improving on the ST-Line X, which I had before.
But I thought, where I could unpick it, try and identify what’s changed in the intervening years, which doesn’t appear to be down to the model changes. I can’t guarantee all of this will be accurate, as a result, but I’ll give it a good try.
So, what have Ford changed on the Ford Puma?
- There is now a USB-C connector in the centre console, rather than USB-A
- The side mirrors project a Puma logo onto the ground below (so cool)
- There are no scuff plates (this may have only been included in high models before but, now, none of the models include these – I’ve had them added as an extra)
- The Mega Box is bigger. It also appears to be turned 90 degree from the previous version too
- There is no rubber mat at the bottom of the Mega Box
- Mats are included
- The tyre inflation kit has moved from under the driver’s seat to the boot
The following are all about the software. Which is odd – my 2020 Puma was completely up-to-date with software but didn’t do any of the following. Either an update came later or, for some reason, these are specific to the new Puma. In the case of Sync changes, I’m not sure why they’d be limited to newer models.
- There is a new dashboard indication for warning about upcoming changes in driving (e.g. having to brake)
- At the end of each journey, an Eco summary screen is shown
- The Sync 3 menus are also quite different now. For example, there is a B&O branded menu
- A lot of the settings that were controlled from the steering menu is now part of Sync
