Ford’s EcoSport SUV is the first to global Ford vehicle that was completely developed in South America and was launched in Brazil last month.
The SUV contains a modified version of the Blue Oval’s B-segment platform (present in the Fiesta). The compact size of the vehicle makes greater provision for manoeuvrability. It is accompanied by a brand new 1.0 litre 3 cylinder ecoboost engine that has the ability to pump out 120 PS power as well as a peak torque of 170 Nm plus super low CO2 levels of 140 g/km. With a petrol engine that is turbo-charged, it can generate the same output as that of a 1.6 litre engine. The engine is small and compact which actually translates into you saving moola as it is easy on the juice. Fuel efficiency is a result of the emphasis that Ford has placed on the aerodynamic specification for the Ford EcoSport SUV. It will only be available in a front wheel drive option and will provide a smooth ride even on harsh and rugged terrain.
