Ford EcoSport Vehicle Information
Among the subcompact crossover sport utility vehicle (SUV) class, few vehicles are as recognizable as Ford’s EcoSport. Smaller than mid or full size SUVs, the EcoSport still provides an impressive amount of utility. This is the ideal vehicle for any Orlando FL driver looking for something smaller than a pickup, but with better performance and functionality than a sedan.
The EcoSport’s compact frame is snappy, sleek, and designed to catch your eye. Available in four different models (S, SE, SES, and Titanium), you will have eight exterior colors and four interior colors to choose from. You can complement your choice of exterior color by going for the available 17-inch Premium Dark-painted stainless machined aluminum wheels. A panorama moonroof and a side-swinging rear hatch add unique flair to this vehicle, making it distinctive from others in its class. Protect your EcoSport by choosing the Exterior Protection Package to ensure that it always looks as good as the day you drove it off the lot.
There is an impressive amount of room inside the EcoSport, which means that neither passengers nor drivers will have to ride in discomfort. The EcoSport also excels at innovative storage solutions. Along with the usual center console bin and side door cubbies, there are also several pockets on the back of the seats along with smaller pockets on the seat sides. The glove box has more room than usual because the user’s manual has its own slot. The EcoSport’s cargo area offers a versatile storage solution – you can adjust the floor so that it either aligns with the rear seats when they are folded down, or adjoins with the hatch. When the floor is lifted up, there is ample room to store things like laptops, backpacks, purses, and other small bags.
There is a lot of tech involved with the 2018 EcoSport. Whereas in most vehicles the touchscreen is located in the center stack, with the EcoSport it is above that, giving the appearance that it is floating. A 4.2 inch color touchscreen is standard, but you can upgrade to 6 or 8-inch variations if you so desire. The touchscreen gives you access to the SYNC (or SYNC 3), AppLink, and 911 Assist features. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are also available so that you can pair your phone to your vehicle, regardless of brand. There are two smart-charging USB ports in the center stack, as well as a 12-volt socket. For your passengers there is another 12-volt socket that comes standard, and you have the option of ordering an additional 110-volt outlet. The EcoSport’s audio setup is nothing to scoff at either – if you want it, the Titanium model has a B&O Play Premium Audio System by Harman, which gives you a 675-watt, 10 speaker arrangement, complete with subwoofer.
Safety is a key feature that many Orlando drivers look for, and fortunately the 2018 EcoSport wins on this front in spades. The Safety Canopy System gives you additional side-curtain airbags and also has a rollover sensor. The AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control feature detects any wheel slippage you might experience and then modifies the engine’s torque in order to fix the problem. When it comes to safety when parking or backing up, the Reverse Sensing System works by giving you an audio alert if you come too close to an object while in reverse. The Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) with Traffic Alert uses sensors to detect if there is a vehicle in your blind spots and will notify you via a light in the driver’s sideview mirror.
At Greenway Ford we get a lot of drivers looking for that perfect vehicle that is compact without being too cramped, but still has enough utility and storage room to be a good choice. With the 2018 EcoSport, Ford offers an affordable, reliable solution that is sure to meet your every need.
