In 2018, Ford will release a new small SUV model on the North-American market, an overdue supplement to their collection of large, bigger, largest SUVs. The 2018 Ford EcoSport has been on other areas since 2014 and is now supposed to contend with other compact crossover models.
Instances contain the natural and round 2017 Mazda CX-3 and the excellent little 2016 Jeep Renegade. The smaller SUVs that were put out lately drew the American public suddenly well. In general, this may be the reason Ford is today also issuing their first ever compact crossover in the US. However, the compact crossover segment is quite broad presently, therefore it is far from particular that the 2018 Ford EcoSport will make the cut.
Only when the car can provide some excellent functions it might stand a chance, but at the first search these aren’t easy to find. Check out the full review and opt for your self if the 2018 EcoSport could become a publics favourite.
2018 Ford EcoSport Exterior design
As always, we will start by discussing the particular model’s exterior. The 2018 EcoSport is a cool looking crossover with the trademark Ford grille. On this model it has the same form, but various grille patterns with three broad chrome strips. Also, behind it there’s a darker mesh-type pattern. Still another typical Ford feature is the decrease air dam, which is surrounded by an insert therefore it seems larger. Then eventually, there are the straight headlights and triangular foglights that give the car its gently extreme look.
The side of the car defines it self by the relatively small wheels and high stance of the vehicle. The lower part of the car is puffed out and perfectly moves around the wheel arches as well. There is a body line that moves from the front to the back through the lower outline of the side windows. It increases, and underneath it there is another body line that remains all the way to the back in a slightly upwards way.
The rear of the car expresses it self by the wrap around rear window, the typical Ford taillights, the dark fender and the silver-coloured insert on it. More over, there aren’t several exceptional functions about the 2018 Ford EcoSport exterior.
There is a total of ten various outside colours available.
In general, the car looks good enough, nevertheless it’s not the most appealing compact crossover out there. It’s quite a generic over all search, and it seems more like an oversized hatchback than like a small SUV. If a compact crossover is released, it might need to provide more spunk to actually manage to compete here.
2018 Ford EcoSport Interior design
Unlike the exterior of the 2018 EcoSport, the inside is a whole refreshment to appear at. A contemporary interior design favorite, the wraparound dashboard, is present and there’s a pretty large infotainment screen that catches the eye. The center bunch appears clear enough and all the air vents have a nice angular design.
The EcoSport interior is accessible with towel seats, incomplete leather seats or whole leather seats, all in a dark (black) hue. The North-American variation of the EcoSport gets the option of a contrasting interior colour. Possibly, the European EcoSport will get that too in a later stadium. On some push photographs that colour is orange, but it’s estimated that you will have other various colours as well.
The car’s normal features are an audio system with six speakers, AUX and USB ports, a cooled dashboard partition and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Ultimately, the car features normal Submarine normal lighting. Recommended on higher trims of the 2018 Ford EcoSport is an intelligent ac process with a pollen filter.
The optional noise system is a Hammer & Olufsen PLAY with 10 speakers including, tweeters, woofers and a subwoofer.
Ultimately, the EcoSport has rear seats that could fold down into the floor for additional shipment space. Essential, because there is not much in the car. In general, the EcoSport interior looks more than decent, it appears like a nice atmospheric room to be moved in. Unfortunately legroom might be limited.
2018 Ford EcoSport Engine specs

The other engine option is a 2.0 liter four cylinder. The latter should come equipped with Ford’s Wise Four Wheel Push system. The last US engine is not known yet, but an engine with a bit more power is likely. We expect to see a 2.0 liter non-EcoBoost engine that provides around 160 horsepower. Usually, one of the engine choices for the 2017 Ford Fusion sedan will make their return on the EcoSport.
All engines come with intelligent transmission.
