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 drivers. Crossovers integrated the robust, muscular efficiency of an SUV with the uni-body handling and agility of a car. They’re excellent vehicles, which don’t compromise on efficiency or cargo space.
With the popular Ford Escape, novice eager beaver EcoSport and midsize Edge, the majority of motorists are able to discover a Ford crossover that is best-suited for their unique way of life and need. Ford took its very first stab at the subcompact crossover market with the release of the U.S.-spec 2018 EcoSport. Because it’s still so new, we don’t expect any substantial updates when the 2019 EcoSport strikes the market.
2019 Ford EcoSport Design
Design-wise, we anticipate absolutely nothing to change on the 2019 EcoSport. When it at first struck display rooms in 2018, the vehicle got here with Ford’s unique style language, albeit scaled down to a small crossover. If there are any changes, they might include more subtle updates, fresh color choices, extra rim choices, and other light tweaks.
2019 Ford EcoSport Cabin
We anticipate the exact same to ring true in the cabin, as there’s no factor for Ford to start altering things around on the within just yet. Expect it to also continue with its approximately 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 expect no changes to the EcoSport’s powertrains, as we anticipate it to continue with the exact same 123-horsepower 1.0-liter three-cylinder and optional 166-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder engines. In the present vehicle, both couple with a six-speed automatic transmission. We expect front-wheel drive to stay the only drive option for the three-cylinder 2019 EcoSport, though it would be great to see all-wheel drive at least 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 safety just yet, however it’s not uncommon for small crossovers to struggle in these tests, so time will tell on this. While it does not have readily available automatic emergency situation braking, the EcoSport does have offered blind-spot monitoring.
2019 Ford EcoSport Pricing & Release Date
Although there’s no official release date yet, we anticipate an early-2019 release based on Ford’s schedule this year. Main prices is still an escapes, but with no updates in store, we expect to see only mild cost increases over the 2018 EcoSport’s MSRP variety of $20,990 to $28,235 (location fees consisted of). Rivals consist of the Honda HR-V, Jeep Renegade, Subaru Crosstrek, and Toyota C-HR.
