The All-New 2018 Ford Ecosport: A Crossover Sweet-Spot
Brand new to the Ford compact-crossover lineup, the 2018 Ford Ecosport promises uncompromising quality, SUV-like performance, and modern technological features—all as a small utility vehicle. The Ford Ecosport is only a foot and a half shorter than the current Ford Escape and maintains its 5-person seating capacity with room to make even more cargo space than it already has. Needless to say, it’s a standout vehicle that packs more than you would expect. Learn more about the brand-new 2018 Ford Ecosport right here at Lally Southpoint Ford!
Standard across every Ecosport model, Ford’s exclusive engine provides great performance and fuel efficiency with its standard 1.0L EcoBoost engine. This engine delivers you great mileage for the money spent, along with great fuel consumption: 8.6L/100km in the city, and 8.1L/100km on the highway! With the incredibly smart Auto Start-Stop technology, the engine switches off every time you come to a complete stop so you save even more on gas — simply release the brake to get moving again. On top of it all, the Ecosport churns out a respectable 123-hp and torque of 125 lb-ft.
Looking from the outside, you wouldn’t expect the Ford Ecosport to have the kind of cargo space that it has. It has a standard cargo capacity of 592-litres with the rear seats up, but folding the 60/40-split seats gives an even greater total of 1,416-litres! Needless to say, you can’t get kind of space with any other vehicle in its class. Also packaged inside is the Ford SYNC system to connect you everything important while you’re driving. With its 8-inch touchscreen, its Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility keep your phone’s information right where you need it.
