The 2018 Ford EcoSport gives you all of the power, performance, and storage that a busy, on the go family could possibly need. There are two engines to choose from with the 2018 EcoSport. The standard engine on the S, SE, and Titanium trims is the 1.0-liter EcoBoostⓇwith auto start/stop technology. This engine is turbocharged and direct-injection, packing it full of power. The 1.0-liter engine delivers 123 horsepower and 125 lb.-ft. of torque, allowing you to cruise the roads with ease.
The standard engine on the SES trims and optional on the S, SE, and Titanium trims is the 2.0-liter Ti-VCT I-4 with auto start/stop technology. This engine is paired with Intelligent 4WD to give you peace of mind no matter what the road conditions are. The engine also gets you 166 horsepower and 149 lb.-ft. of torque.
Each engine is paired with a six-speed SelectShiftⓇautomatic transmission to ensure that your ride is always smooth. Likewise, AdvanceTracⓇwith Roll Stability Control™ keeps your ride smooth no matter what the weather. In rain, snow, or ice, the system will give you increased stopping power, improved traction, increased response time, and additional stability. The system will check the vehicle’s stability 150 times per second and can correct the vehicle’s path by applying the brakes to one or more wheels. It can also sense if the rear wheel will slide out and apply the brakes accordingly. As if that’s not enough, the system increases the brake and throttle control to prevent rollover. It monitors the vehicle’s body angle and speed, reducing power and braking one or more wheels to help correct the incident.
As a compact SUV, the 2018 EcoSport seats five comfortably, making it perfect for small families or anyone who has to haul a lot of materials on a daily basis. The EcoSport also delivers good gas mileage, saving you money at the pump. All trim levels except for the SES get 27/29 MPG; the SES gets 23/29. No matter which trim you choose, you can count on saving money at the gas station.
