About the EcoSport

The Ford EcoSport has been around since 2003 and was first developed and built by Ford Brazil at their plant in Camacari. The EcoSport launched a second generation in 2012, but didn’t arrive in the North American market until 2018.

The first-generation models came with a total of 5 powertrain options, all of them 4-cylinder units ranging from 1-liter to 2-liter displacement. There was one turbo diesel engine in there, too, a 1.4-liter unit that was made for export only. All powertrains were paired with a 5-speed manual transmission as standard and FWD drivetrain, except for the models with the Duratec 2-liter engine, which had the option of getting a 4-speed automatic.

The second-generation models arrived in 2012, with the 2018 facelifted model arriving in the US market, but finally getting discontinued in 2022. Big changes in 2018 included many exterior updates such as the front end and rear bumper, as well as interior updates such as a new dashboard design with an optional floating 8-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.

While the Ford EcoSport enjoys ongoing success in the UK market, it has not been well received in the US, which helps to explain its relatively early discontinuation in that market as of the 2022 model year.

Standard drivetrain features in the 2022 US edition include a 166-hp 4-cylinder engine, standard AWD, and a 6-speed automatic transmission. While at the top of the trim ladder, the Titanium model offers a comfortable ride thanks to its soft suspension, the EcoSport is still criticized for its excess body movement and roll when tackling corners.

Underneath the car is the Fiesta platform that it also shares with the older and the new Puma crossover SUV.

As crossover SUVs go, however, it’s fairly efficient at 23-mpg in the city and 29-mpg on the highway. The interior, however, has been described as very underwhelming, even on the top-level trims. It seems the EcoSport was not destined to do well in the US.
