First-ever 2018 Ford EcoSport

2018 EcoSport
Fun, capable – and dare we say cute? The brand-new 2018 Ford EcoSport is a compact SUV that has it all. It’s an affordable way to get into a raised ride height, tons of cargo space and available all-wheel drive.

What’s new for 2018?
From bumper to bumper, the Ford EcoSport is an all new model.

Look good, feel good

The Ford EcoSport looks a lot like a shrunk down version of the Escape – and that’s a good thing. LED lighting and athletic body lines define the small, yet bold SUV. Handy exterior features include a cap-less fuel filler and a tailgate that swings outward.

Inside, the EcoSport is both stylish and comfortable. Heated and leather-trimmed front seats keep occupants cozy, while an available power moonroof brings in fresh air. Folding rear seats and the innovative Cargo Management System all you to transport just about anything.

For 2018, the EcoSport is available in S, SE, SES and Titanium models.
Economical and capable
EcoSport owners have the right to laugh at other SUV owners at the gas pump. Ford’s smallest SUV comes with one of two efficient engine options to save you dough when refueling. The first is a 1.0L three-cylinder, putting out a perky 123 hp. For those looking for one more cylinder, there’s also a 2.0L four-pot, creating 166 hp. Start-Strop technology allows both engines to switch off when you come to a stop and automatically kick back on when you’re ready to go. This improves fuel mileage and keeps money in your wallet.

Both engine options are paired with an automatic transmission and front-wheel drive. For maximum traction, all-wheel drive is also available.

Big tech in a small package.

Ford engineers should get a raise for being able to cram so much technology into such a small package. The Ford Ecosport is offered with the latest gadgetry, such as the B&O Premium audio system for tunes and MyKey for helping younger drivers build responsible driving habits. The SYNC infotainment system connects occupants to the outside world, with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Oh yeah, and you can also lock, unlock and start the EcoSport with SYNC Connect and FordPASS. All of this, at a price that won’t break the bank.

Safety for the digital era

The EcoSport applies the latest technology to safety and security. Notable standard safety features include AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control, a rear-view camera and the LATCH child restraint system. The Safety Canopy side-air curtain technology keeps everyone safe in the event of an accident. There’s also available blind spot monitoring with traffic alert to keep you informed of what’s beside you and behind you.
