What is the 2017 Ford EcoSport?

First introduced in Brazil in 2003, the EcoSport defines itself as a subcompact SUV in the Ford lineup, famous for doing a lot with a little. A second-generation model was released in 2012, and along with its American debut, the 2017 model is getting a whole new look as well. There will be a new dashboard built to handle Sync 3 technology, as well as all-wheel drive. It’s expected to come equipped with a gasoline engine, with expectations pointing to Ford’s 2.0L four-cylinder engine and EcoBoost 1.0L three-cylinder as likely candidates.

At heart, the EcoSport is a subcompact crossover, based on the same platform that forms the foundation as the popular Ford Fiesta model. In the past, its offered both manual and automatic transmissions depending on the driver’s preference, and odds are very good that the latest iteration would offer those same options.
