What powers the 2018 Ford EcoSport?

There are dual engine possibilities offered with the 2018 EcoSport. The initial engine works for the FWD as standard, and is a turbocharged 1.0-L three-cylinder with a gas-friendly 123-horsepower and 125 pound-feet of torque, and is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The EPA estimates it will get 27 mpg city and 29 mpg highway. The alternative engine is a 2.0-L four-cylinder that generates 166 horsepower and spins 149 pound-feet of torque. That power-train setup enables the all-wheel drive and also utilizes a 6-speed automatic transmission. Ford also puts in features to assist with ease of driving, like AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control, Auto Start-Stop, and Hill Start Assist.

What features are found in each model?

The Ford EcoSport bursts into 2018 confidently using four strong models. The S model brings a driver info display, 60/40 fold-flat rear seatbacks, 16" alloy wheels, A/C, height-adjustable front seats, the 1.0L EcoBoost engine, a 4.2" middle display, dual USB ports, auto-headlights, remote locking/unlocking, a tilt-&-telescoping steering wheel, and Bluetooth. The next trim is the SE, which arrives with items like the Easy Fuel capless fuel filler, body-colored exterior accents, a sunroof, 2-zone automatic climate control, front/rear tow hooks, heated front seats, a 6.5" touchscreen, Android Auto & Apple CarPlay compatibility, and LED running lights. The athletic-looking SES trim installs, as standard, a 2.0L engine, AWD, and a sport-tuned suspension, then adds on to that some copper and black accenting, which all frames the partial-leather seating for extra style points. The luxury Titanium model gets into it with blind-spot monitoring, dual smart-charging USB ports, leather upholstery, a power moonroof with sunshade, a 10-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system, automatic wipers, 17" wheels, an 8-inch color LCD touchscreen, and body-colored bumpers. The EcoSport comes in Canyon Ridge, Ruby Red, Blue Candy, and Moondust Silver, among six other exterior colors.

How is safety and technology on the Ford EcoSport in 2018?

Also, remember how tech-laden this vehicle is, with Waze through SYNC 3 AppLink, Amazon Alexa connect-ability, an available Wi-Fi hotspot, and Android Auto/Apple CarPlay integration as well. The Ford-Pass app is available as well and will allow owners to compare gas prices along the way, schedule services, and find parking beforehand remotely. On the safety side, there is a lot being laid out on the table, such as the Safety Canopy System with side-curtain airbags, and the SecuriLock Passive Anti-Theft System. That list continues with the LATCH system for child seats, dual-stage driver and front-passenger airbags, and an SOS Post-Crash Alert System. Certain trims can also opt for the ultrasonic sensor-using Reverse Sensing System to assist drivers when backing up, a blind spot information system (BLIS) that utilizes radar and alerts for issues in cross traffic situations, as well as rain-sensing wipers too!
