Ford will show off its next-generation Kuga SUV at this month's Australian International Motor Show, ahead of its sales debut in 2013.

Revealed late last year as the US-market Escape, the brand-new Kuga will replace the already-aged model that debuted in Australia earlier this year.

While the current stop-gap Kuga is among the oldest offerings in Ford Australia's line-up, the new Kuga promises to boost the carmaker's appeal in the popular SUV segment.

Among the new technologies on offer with the new model will be Ford's 177kW/339Nm 2.0 litre EcoBoost engine, already available in Range Rover's Evoque SUV and overseas versions of the midsized Mondeo range.

Overseas engine options for the new Kuga also include a smaller 129kW 1.6 litre EcoBoost mill, and a 125kW updated version of Ford's 2.5 litre four-cylinder engine.

In Europe, the new Kuga is also offered with 103kW and 120kW versions of Ford's 2.0 litre TDCi diesel. While local specifications are still to be confirmed, we can likely expect one of these options for Australia.

Transmissions in the 2013 Kuga range include Ford's six-speed automatic transmission, while front- and all-wheel-drive configurations are also offered.

In the cabin, the new Kuga gets a Focus-inspired dash, featuring a similar look to the tall centre stack, vertical air vents and four-spoke steering wheel.

Ford's SYNC infotainment and connectivity system will likely also feature (as found in overseas models). Ford Australia's 2013 Focus line-up recently added the system.

The same self-parking system featured on the new Focus hatch range will also feature in the nw Kuga, along with the Blind Spot Information System originally developed with Volvo.

The Kuga will be joined at AIMS this month by the brand's new Focus ST hot hatch, along with the new EcoSport compact SUV.
