Is the Chevrolet Captiva based on the Ford Kuga?

The new Chevrolet Captiva looks remarkably like a Ford Kuga. I looked the Chevy, up on your excellent web site, but it makes no mention of a Kuga. Are there any Ford links with the Captiva?

None whatsoever. But it does look remarkably like a Vauxhall Antara because it is exactly the same, but with a different grille and badging. Built in South Korea.
