Since the early 2000s, Ford has been one of the earlier competitors in the compact-crossover vehicle market when they launched the Escape and dominated the market. The company continues to offer more options in the category with the latest iteration of Ford EcoSport, which is one of Ford’s most compact vehicles yet.
We at Kentwood Ford Edmonton are ecstatic to offer this vehicle among our current lineup of Ford vehicles, and we can’t wait to show you why it’s the perfect one for you and your family! We also compiled a list of features that stood out during our test drives and inspections to give you a comprehensive understanding of the additional benefits that come with the all-new 2018 Ford EcoSport.
The vehicle’s status as a compact-crossover gives you more space and seating for less real-estate. The exterior of the EcoSport is nearly 20% smaller than the Ford Explorer and both vehicles fit the same amount of passengers. It also features a swing gate style door for the back, to give the vehicle an added touch on its compact design.
Not only are you able to fit up to 5 passengers inside the 2018 Ford EcoBoost, but you can even store your seats to make more room for extra cargo. With 60/40 flip-up and split-fold-flat rear seat backs, the switch between extra passengers or more cargo has never been quicker and easier. Either way, there’s plenty of room in this car.
Ford’s exclusive EcoBoost engines provide great performance and fuel efficiency. It’s standard 1.0L gives you great mileage for your money, with a standard 8.6L/100km in the city and 8.1L/100km on the highway. With all that, you also get a great horsepower for its class, with 123 hp @ 6,000 RPM.
Auto Start-Stop Technology
Not only does the 2018 Ford EcoSport excel in convenience, but it’s also environmentally conscious as well. A great feature for this vehicle is its Auto Start-Stop Technology, which lets you automatically shut off your engine when it’s not active, like at a stoplight. One of the benefits of this is that you conserve more fuel in your tank and save money. Plus you’re decreasing your carbon footprint in the world, which is always a plus!
The 2018 Ford EcoBoost also includes some fantastic technology to make your drive more entertaining. It comes standard with a 8-inch LCD touchscreen display to add convenience to your driving experience. The interface is also compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to better suit whichever smartphone preferences you have.
These are just only a few features we liked most about the 2018 Ford EcoBoost, but it doesn’t stop there. Want to learn more about it?
