Ford’s Newest and Smallest SUV – The 2018 Ford EcoSport
The all-new Ford EcoSport compact SUV was unveiled for North America at the first-ever vehicle reveal on Snapchat at an event in Hollywood before the annual Los Angeles Auto Show. The interactive event showcased the fun, capable and connected EcoSport, which Ford is calling the “perfect companion for those believe in going small and living big.”
Designed for customers who want the capability of an SUV, but with the space-saving convenience and efficiency of a compact car, the EcoSport brings tons of exclusive features to the compact SUV market. The EcoSport will be one of the first vehicles available with the new Ford-exclusive B&O PLAY audio system, which is a 675-watt, 10-speaker, acoustically-tuned setup that lets you unlock the power of your favorite music.
The 2018 Ford EcoSport also has SYNC 3 available, which features intuitive, hands-free driver voice commands, an 8-inch touchscreen and support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. EcoSport drivers will also be able to start, lock, unlock, locate their vehicle and view vehicle information like fuel level using the SYNC Connect with FordPass smartphone app.
The EcoSport also has enough power points to make sure everyone’s devices are charged, with two fast-charging USB ports, two 12-volt power outlets and an available 110-volt outlet behind the center console. Up to 30 storage bins, pockets and hooks allow for easy cargo storage, and a movable floor board and fold-away second-row seats provide a flat surface for hauling bigger items.
Engine options for the 2018 Ford EcoSport include the award-winning 1.0-liter EcoBoost three-cylinder or a 2.0-liter four-cylinder, and both come with six-speed automatic transmissions. Drivers who pick the 2.0-liter engine get Ford’s Intelligent 4WD system standard.
