This small yet sporty SUV has a surprisingly spacious interior that puts your comfort and convenience front-and-center. Plus, the responsive and zippy engine provides more than enough “oomph!” to bring excitement to your daily commute. Peruse the details of a new EcoSport below and then view our current inventory to start shopping with us today!

Newly redesigned for the 2018 model year, the Ford EcoSport has two thrilling engine options. Start with a standard 1.0-liter EcoBoost® three-cylinder engine with Auto Start-Stop, paired with six-speed automatic transmission to give you great fuel efficiency and plenty of pep on the pedal. However, if you’re looking for an engine that really zooms, choose the available 2.0-liter Ti-VCT four-cylinder engine with Auto Start-Stop and all-wheel drive. You’ll have four trim levels to choose from: S, SE, SES, and top-spec Titanium. The sport-focused SES trim features intelligent all-wheel-drive, a sport-tuned suspension, sport seats, copper interior accents, and more.

Comfort is everything in the all-new 2018 EcoSport. You’ll settle into a plush cabin that keeps you connected and provides ample comfort. Stay fully charged with two fast-charging USB ports and a 12-volt outlet on the console. Plus, the spacious second-row seats are comfortable to bring along friends for your next weekend getaway. The trunk space starts at a competitive 21 cubic feet that grows to a massive 50 cubic feet of storage space when you fold both seats in the 40/60 split. Plus, loading is easy with a rear door that swings out sideways instead of up and has a handle-latch that hides in plain sight.

Add more visibility to your drive with the new Ford EcoSport. With the available BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System), this crossover can help sense traffic around you that’s hard to see and provides a visual alert on your mirror so you can see it before you make your move to the next lane. The available Cross-Traffic Alert also uses radar to watch for traffic behind your vehicle as you’re slowly back out of a parking spot or driveway. If cross-traffic sensors detect a vehicle approaching from up to 15 yards away, you will be audibly and visually alerted so you can react appropriately. Don’t leave your safety to chance, drive with certainty.

Take a test drive today and find your reason to love the 2018 Ford EcoSport. This small crossover SUV has a big personality that’s sure to win you over. View our current inventory now!
