Ford Puma Priced from £20,845, Shipping to UK
The sporty and stylish Ford Puma is on its way to the United Kingdom, with the first batch leaving the Ford Craiova plant earlier this month. A trainload of Ford Puma SUVs left the Romanian city on National Day of Romania, carrying nearly 300 examples of the ferocious new feline to its first stop in Flushing, Netherlands.
“Later on, they will be transported by ship to the UK,” said Ian Pearson, President of Ford Romania and Ford Craiova plant director. “We are very happy that the launch of the new Ford Puma is proceeding according to our plans. The Puma Launch team, the Ford Craiova Plant team, and our suppliers have done a great job.”

Production on the new Ford Puma kicked off in October following an approximate US$222 million investment at Craiova. Some of the investment was used to hire 1,700 new employees and add a third shift to bolster production. Craivoa also manufactures the EcoSport and the 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine, and it was recently recognized as Ford’s most water-efficient facility in Europe.
When it arrives in the UK, the Ford Puma will start at 20,845 pounds (approximately US$27,400) for the Puma Titanium. Key features offered with the Puma Titanium include first-in-segment massage front seats and wireless charging. Ford is also offering a Ford Puma Titanium First Edition, which adds heated seats and steering wheel as well as Adaptive Cruise Control, for 22,295 pounds (approximately US$30,250).
The 2020 Ford Puma is available in an ST-Line X trim, which starts at 25,195 pounds (approximately US$33,150), and an ST-Line X First Edition is available from 27,345 pounds (approximately US$36,000). Ford also announced a Titanium X trim earlier this autumn.
