If you’ve looked around at the vehicles on the roadway lately, you’ve most likely noticed that crossover SUVs are among the most popular options for modern drivers. Crossovers combined the robust, muscular efficiency of an SUV with the uni-body handling and dexterity of a car. They’re fantastic vehicles, which do not compromise on efficiency or freight space.
With the popular Ford Escape, rookie dynamo EcoSport and midsize Edge, the majority of chauffeurs are able to discover a Ford crossover that is best-suited for their special lifestyle and need. Ford took its very 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 don’t anticipate any substantial updates when the 2019 EcoSport hits the marketplace.
2019 Ford EcoSport Design
Design-wise, we anticipate nothing to change on the 2019 EcoSport. When it at first hit showrooms in 2018, the vehicle got here with Ford’s unique style language, albeit scaled down to a tiny crossover. If there are any changes, they could consist of more subtle updates, like new color choices, additional rim choices, and other light tweaks.
2019 Ford EcoSport Cabin
We anticipate the same to prove out in the cabin, as there’s no reason for Ford to begin altering things around on the within just yet. Anticipate it to also continue with its as much as 30 storage bins, movable panel on the cargo floor and helpful alternatives like its 10-speaker audio system and 110-volt power outlet.
2019 Ford EcoSport Powertrains
We likewise prepare for 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 current vehicle, both pair with a six-speed automated transmission. We anticipate front-wheel drive to remain the only drive option for the three-cylinder 2019 EcoSport, though it would be nice to see all-wheel drive at least as a choice. The 2.0-liter engine is offered in either front-wheel or all-wheel drive.
The IIHS has actually not tested the EcoSport for safety right now, but it’s not uncommon for little crossovers to have a hard time in these tests, so time will inform on this. While it does not have available automatic emergency braking, the EcoSport does have available blind-spot monitoring.
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. Official pricing is still a ways out, however with no updates in store, we expect to see just mild cost increases over the 2018 EcoSport’s MSRP series of $20,990 to $28,235 (destination costs included). Competitors include the Honda HR-V, Jeep Renegade, Subaru Crosstrek, and Toyota C-HR.
