2019 Ford EcoSport
If you’ve taken a look around at the vehicles on the road lately, you’ve most likely observed that crossover SUVs are one of the most popular options for modern motorists. Crossovers integrated the robust, muscular performance of an SUV with the uni-body handling and agility of a car. They’re great vehicles, which don’t jeopardize on effectiveness or freight area.
With the popular Ford Escape, novice dynamo EcoSport and midsize Edge, many motorists are able to find a Ford crossover that is best-suited for their unique lifestyle and need. Ford took its first stab at the subcompact crossover market with the release of the U.S.-spec 2018 EcoSport. Because it’s still so new, we don’t anticipate any substantial updates when the 2019 EcoSport strikes the market.
2019 Ford EcoSport Design
Design-wise, we anticipate nothing to change on the 2019 EcoSport. When it initially struck showrooms in 2018, the vehicle got here with Ford’s unique style language, albeit scaled down to a small crossover. If there are any changes, they might include more subtle updates, like new color options, extra rim alternatives, and other light tweaks.
2019 Ford EcoSport Cabin
We anticipate the very same to prove out in the cabin, as there’s no reason for Ford to start altering things around on the within just yet. Anticipate it to likewise continue with its up to 30 storage bins, movable panel on the freight flooring and beneficial alternatives like its 10-speaker audio system and 110-volt power outlet.
2019 Ford EcoSport Powertrains
We also anticipate no changes to the EcoSport’s powertrains, as we expect it to continue with the very same 123-horsepower 1.0-liter three-cylinder and optional 166-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder engines. In the present vehicle, both pair with a six-speed automatic transmission. We anticipate front-wheel drive to remain the only drive option for the three-cylinder 2019 EcoSport, though it would be great to see all-wheel drive at least as a choice. The 2.0-liter engine is available in either front-wheel or all-wheel drive.
The IIHS has not evaluated the EcoSport for safety right now, but it’s not unusual for small crossovers to struggle in these tests, so time will tell on this. While it lacks readily available automated emergency braking, the EcoSport does have readily available blind-spot monitoring.
2019 Ford EcoSport Pricing & Release Date
Although there’s no official release date yet, we anticipate an early-2019 release based upon Ford’s schedule this year. Main rates is still an escapes, however without any updates in shop, we anticipate to see only mild rate increases over the 2018 EcoSport’s MSRP variety of $20,990 to $28,235 (location charges included). Competitors include the Honda HR-V, Jeep Renegade, Subaru Crosstrek, and Toyota C-HR.
