EcoSport facelift launch expected towards the end of this year….
Back at the Los Angeles Motor Show in November 2016, Ford unveiled the EcoSport facelift which gained a new face, minor changes at the rear but more importantly comprehensively redesigned interiors with an all-new dashboard.
The two test mules, one black and the other blue, are running with camouflaged front and rear portions, suggesting that changes will be none on the sides, save for the new alloy wheels.
Ecosport facelift also continues with the exposed spare wheel unlike the North American and other markets (where Ford has removed it). What happens to the India-spec Ecosport’s interiors can not be predicted without having a look at them but we get a feeling that Ford may continue with the current setup here, with minor nip and tuck.
EcoSport Facelift Launch
Since they are already on the roads testing the compact SUV in India, expect an official launch sometime towards the end of this year.
In terms of mechanicals, all the three engines – 1.5 Liter TIVCT petrol, 1.0 Liter turbocharged EcoBoost and 1.5 Liter TDCI diesel, are expected to continue. What we would like to see though are more variants of the EcoBoost motor, specially the lower ones.
