Ford New EcoSport
A First Look at the New EcoSport...
The popular small SUV, the Ford EcoSport is getting a redesign!
Ok so we know 2017 has only just finished, but from early 2018 the new Ford EcoSport will be available with a redesign and with the mantra 'Go Small and Live Big'. Inspired by the idea that "More people are choosing to spend their time and money sharing experiences with friends and family instead of buying more stuff," Chantel Lenard, Executive Director of Ford U.S. marketing says "The new Ford EcoSport fits perfectly into this growing lifestyle. It's our smallest SUV, packed with features and personality."
With that in mind the all-new Ford EcoSport, taking design cues from the new Ford Kuga and new Ford Edge, will be the perfect partner for a life full of surprising possibilities... What you need, when you need it. It'll be nimble and ready for just about anything, and jam packed with technology that'll keep you in touch with the world around you. Ultimately resulting in an everyday SUV that's fun, capable, and connected.
Newer, Smarter, and More Spacious...
The all-new 2018 Ford EcoSport offers technology to make driving more convenient than ever. The BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with cross-traffic alert utilises sensors to alert you of vehicles in your blind spot. Ford's SYNC 3 with compatible Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ offers enhanced voice-recognition capability and an available 8-inch colour LCD touchscreen (with swipe and pinch-to-zoom capability). What's more, Auto Start-Stop technology helps reduce fuel consumption and emissions.
The redesigned 2018 Ford EcoSport is comfortable and accommodating with plenty of head room and leg room. With added technology that keeps you smarter and connected, then you have a ride that will never cramp your style.
Performance and Specification...
The next generation 2018 Ford EcoSport will be available with two engine choices. The standard 1.0-litre 3-cylinder turbocharged EcoBoost engine with different power derivatives of (100PS, 125PS & 140PS) also available with a six-speed automatic transmission. Alternatively, there is a Brand New 1.5-litre 4-cylinder engine which comes standard with Intelligent AWD.
