2018 Ford EcoSport Review

While it has been available in other countries for quite some time, the 2018 Ford EcoSport is an all-new model here in America. The competitive subcompact SUV category gets a great addition with this Ford model, thanks to its helpful technology, solid performance, and interior amenities.

Peacock Ford is proud to have this vehicle here at our dealership, which serves those in Maitland, Orlando, and Winter Park. We've put this car review together, so you can make a more informed decision about the next car you want to drive. Interested in checking it out for yourself?

Ford EcoSport Tech Features

 The SYNC® technology Ford has become well-known for can be found in the EcoSport. Included is voice recognition technology, which is a hands-free way to get to your next destination or access an app. The entertainment system comes with a 4.2-inch color LCD screen, and allows you to connect to your favorite music and well-known apps while traveling. Standard Bluetooth® technology is accommodating when you want to make a hands-free phone call.

Available technology includes the SYNC® 3 setup, with a massive 8-inch touchscreen. This system comes with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. Just pair a compatible smartphone touchscreen, and it'll have functionality that looks and acts similar to what you're familiar with on your phone.

The EcoSport is Road-Ready

The engine on the EcoSport S features EcoBoost® technology and auto start-stop capability. When engaged, this feature shuts the engine off when your foot is on the brake and the car has come to a full stop, for example, at a stop light. Gas is conserved because the engine is shut off completely. When it's time to get going again, just press the gas. The engine will start back up, and you'll get on your way.

 On higher trims of the 2018 Ford EcoSport, you'll find a 166-horsepower 2.0L engine. This offers more power for the daily drives and highway trips, too. The available intelligent four-wheel-drive technology is a feature worth considering, too, as it provides better handling while driving on a wide range of surfaces. The efficient base engine offers an EPA-estimated 27 MPG in the city and 29 MPG on the highway.

The Interior and Cargo Room

There's plenty of room to stretch out, with generous amounts of cargo space, too. When it comes to cargo volume, you'll find 50 cubic feet of space behind the front row and 20.9 cubic feet available behind the rear seats. The rear door opens from a side-hinge setup, which is different than most vehicles in this class. This can make it more convenient to load in cargo.

The front seating area carries 42.9 inches of legroom, enough room for drives both long and short. Even taller drivers will be able to enjoy the 39.6 inches of front headroom.
