If you’ve taken a look around at the vehicles on the roadway recently, you’ve most likely noticed that crossover SUVs are among the most popular choices for modern-day motorists. Crossovers combined the robust, muscular performance of an SUV with the uni-body handling and agility of a car. They’re great vehicles, which do not jeopardize on efficiency or cargo space.
With the popular Ford Escape, rookie eager beaver EcoSport and midsize Edge, most chauffeurs have the ability to find a Ford crossover that is best-suited for their distinct way of life and requirement. Ford took its first stab at the subcompact crossover market with the release of the U.S.-spec 2018 EcoSport. Due to the fact that it’s still so new, we do not anticipate any considerable updates when the 2019 EcoSport hits the market.
2019 Ford EcoSport Design
Design-wise, we expect absolutely nothing to change on the 2019 EcoSport. When it initially struck display rooms in 2018, the vehicle showed up with Ford’s distinct style language, albeit reduced to a tiny crossover. If there are any changes, they might include more subtle updates, like new color options, additional rim choices, and other light tweaks.
2019 Ford EcoSport Cabin
We expect the same to prove out in the cabin, as there’s no reason for Ford to start altering things around on the within just yet. Anticipate it to likewise continue with its up to 30 storage bins, movable panel on the freight floor and helpful options like its 10-speaker audio system and 110-volt power outlet.
2019 Ford EcoSport Powertrains
We likewise anticipate no changes to the EcoSport’s powertrains, as we expect it to continue with the same 123-horsepower 1.0-liter three-cylinder and optional 166-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder engines. In the existing vehicle, both couple with a six-speed automatic transmission. We expect front-wheel drive to remain the only drive choice for the three-cylinder 2019 EcoSport, though it would be nice to see all-wheel drive a minimum of as an option. The 2.0-liter engine is available in either front-wheel or all-wheel drive.
The IIHS has actually not evaluated the EcoSport for security just yet, however it’s not unusual for little crossovers to struggle in these tests, so time will inform on this. While it does not have available automated emergency braking, the EcoSport does have readily available blind-spot tracking.
2019 Ford EcoSport Pricing & Release Date
Although there’s no main release date yet, we anticipate an early-2019 release based on Ford’s schedule this year. Main pricing is still an escapes, however with no updates in shop, we anticipate to see just mild price increases over the 2018 EcoSport’s MSRP variety of $20,990 to $28,235 (destination fees included). Rivals include the Honda HR-V, Jeep Renegade, Subaru Crosstrek, and Toyota C-HR.
