Introducing the 2018 Ford EcoSport

This sporty compact crossover may have a small footprint, but with a tall ride height and agile handling, it is a force to be reckoned with on the street. Its extra clearance makes it easier to avoid obstacles and cut through snow, while providing you with a better view of the road. Being compact, the EcoSport makes it easy to dart through traffic, maneuver in tight situations, and snag the best parking spaces. 

Space and Storage

Inside, the EcoSport maximizes every bit of space. There is seating for five, with a favorable amount of head and leg room. For extra comfort and style, heated leather-trimmed seats are available. Flexible cargo features make it easy to bring the things you need with you. The rear cargo area provides 21 cu-ft of space. For even more room, you can fold down the 60/40 rear seats to open up to 50 cu-ft for larger loads. In addition to the generous cargo area, there are 30 unique places to store your belongings throughout the cabin.

Technology & Entertainment
An abundance of the latest technology is available with the EcoSport to keep you entertained and in touch. Every EcoSport comes equipped with an AM/FM audio system with SYNC Bluetooth connectivity for audio streaming and hands-free calling, which can all be managed with steering wheel controls. A 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system or an 8-inch multi-touchscreen infotainment system with navigation are also available. Both infotainment systems come with Apple Car Play and Android Auto compatibility for enhanced voice-recognition and the ability to view and use your favorite apps through the touchscreen display. Other great tech features that are available include:

  • SYNC Connect and FordPass - Allows you to check your fuel level or remotely lock, unlock, and start your vehicle.  Schedule maintenance, request Roadside Assistance, locate your vehicle, and much more all through your phone.
  • SiriusXM Satellite Radio - Listen to over 150 channels of commercial-free music, sports, news, comedy, and entertainment. 
  • BLIS - The Blind Spot Information System with cross-traffic alert will detect and warn you with an indicator light in your mirror if there is a vehicle detected in your blind spot. When you are backing up, the cross-traffic alert uses radar to detect and audibly and visually warn you about approaching traffic. 
  • Ford MyKey - A great tool for parents with young drivers to teach them to become more responsible behind the wheel.  Ford MyKey allows parents to program a key with restricted driving mode settings like limiting top speeds, decreasing audio volume, and increase safety belt use.  

Engines & Transmissions
The EcoSport is available with two powertrain options. The standard front wheel drive model comes with a perky EcoBoost 3-cylinder 1.0-liter turbocharged engine that produces 123 horsepower and 125 lb-ft of torque. An available Intelligent 4WD system is offered to inspire confidence and enhance control in all types of weather. The Intelligent 4WD system comes with a powerful 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 166 horsepower and 149 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are paired with Ford's 6-speed SelectShift Automatic for smooth power delivery and are masters of efficiency with an estimated 29 MPG on the highway.*
Fuel Economy

To help reduce fuel consumption and emissions during city driving and heavy traffic, each EcoSport is equipped with Auto Start-Stop Technology. When you are sitting at a stoplight or stopped in stop-and-go traffic, the Auto Start-Stop Technology will automatically turn off the engine, saving you money by using less fuel while also helping the environment. When you release the brake pedal to go, the engine will seamlessly restart with no impact on your driving experience. If you prefer, the Auto Start-Stop Technology feature can be turned off with the touch of a button.
