The 2018 Ford EcoSport is fun, capable and connected. Its look has nice proportions and a bold design. Instead of a conventional tailgate that opens upward, the swing gate opens to the left, accessible from a hidden switch within the taillamp. It features LED signature lighting and halogen projector headlamps that are both striking and useful. The 60/40 fold-flat seats offer more flexibility, as well as the roof rails and moonroof. The EcoSport standard cargo management system features an adjustable rear load floor and shelf you can use to customize how you stow your gear. It comes with an available 8-inch touchscreen, which allows you to make your vehicle a Wi-Fi hotspot and connect to the FordPass app. The EcoSport is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and comes with a premium sound system. It also offers two smart charging USB ports to keep you connected while on the go. Also, with ambient lighting, you can adjust the color inside to match your mood. Under the hood, the 2.0L Ti-VCT (GDI) engine is paired with intelligent 4WD, offering enhanced handling in any climate and on any road, while the standard 1.0L EcoBoost engine has exhilarating performance. With fun comes responsibility, which is why you’ll find numerous safety features, including a standard rear-view camera, hill start assist, auto start-stop technology and cross traffic alert. The 2018 Ford EcoSport is the first EcoSport in the United States.
