Ford India launched the facelifted version of the EcoSport in India last year. The second-best selling sub-4meter, compact SUV in India, the EcoSport is a very popular car in the Indian market. Ford has voluntarily recalled 4,379 units of the EcoSport for inspection. Ford India will inspect the weld integrity of the front lower control arm of the vehicle. As per the information released by the company, the weld strength of this part may not be as per Ford’s standard. The failure of this part can potentially affect the steering control of the vehicle. Ford has recalled 4,379 units of the EcoSport manufactured between May 2017 and June 2017. Only the pre-facelift EcoSport are affected with the welding issue. Ford India has also issued a recall for vehicles manufactured between November 2017 and December 2017 to inspect the driver and front passenger seat recliner lock. The facelifted EcoSport is affected by this recall. Customers who bought vehicles manufactured between these … [Read more...] about New Ford EcoSport RECALLED in India

Ford expanded the new Ford EcoSport range in India last week with the launch of a sporty ’S’ grade. The Ford EcoSport S’ prices start at INR 11.37 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). Positioned above the Titanium+ grade, the S grade positions itself as the new range-topping grade of the Ford EcoSport. The EcoSport S is sportier than not only the EcoSport Titanium+, but also the new EcoSport Signature Edition. On the outside, it features smoked HID headlamps with dark inserts, blacked out grille, black-painted fog lamp bezels, roof and roof rails and unique 17-inch smoke alloy wheels.

Ford India will introduce the EcoSport Signature and EcoSport S models in India this month. The company has sent out a memo to dealerships stating billing of the additions to the facelifted Ford EcoSport range has commenced. The 2018 Ford EcoSport Signature features darkened headlamps and front skid plate, upper grille with magnetic-painted bars and surrounds, 17-inch machined-face painted wheels, black roof, sunroof, Ebony Black interior with copper accents and orange accent stitching and a 4.2-inch colour MID in place of the 2.3-inch monochrome MID.

The Ford EcoSport S is just weeks away from launching in the Indian market. Ford dealers across the country have already begun receiving demo cars, and it’s a matter of time before pre-bookings are opened. The EcoSport S is India’s first ‘affordable’ performance SUV. Here are five major changes that the EcoSport S will feature to differentiate itself from the regular EcoSport compact SUVs currently on sale in the Indian market. The EcoSport S will use a 1 liter-3 cylinder EcoBoost turbocharged petrol engine. This engine makes 125 Bhp and 170 Nm. While the engine did have significant turbo-lag in the pre-facelift EcoSport, Ford is likely to have worked around this problem. The EcoBoost engine will now get a 6 speed manual gearbox instead of the 5 speed unit the EcoSport pre-facelift models used to have. The additional gear is likely to be low enough for maximum torque and tractability within the city limits – where the older EcoSport EcoBoost used to … [Read more...] about Ford EcoSport S: 5 MAJOR changes in India’s first ‘affordable performance SUV’ detailed!
A source privy to Ford India’s plans this week tipped IAB that the 1.0 L EcoBoost engine that powered the pre-facelift EcoSport will be brought back. Backing the news is Autocar India which reports that the engine will make a comeback on the Ford EcoSport Titanium S. The Ford EosSport Titanium S with the 1.0 L EcoBoost engine will be marketed as a sporty version of the compact SUV. In the UK, the 1.0 L EcoBoost engine comes in two states of tune – 125 PS and 140 PS. The exact power and torque outputs of the India-spec model are not known yet. However, as the 1.5 L 3-cylinder petrol on sale already makes 123 PS, Ford may look to dial the 1.0L to up to 140 PS. The planned launch of the Titanium S grade with a 1.0 L EcoBoost engine also explains the presence of marking for a 6th gear seen in the earlier interior shots. The same engine in the UK-spec EcoSport comes paired with a 6-speed manual transmission. The report adds that the Titanium S trim will be available with the 100 … [Read more...] about Ford EcoSport Titanium S to get 1.0 L EcoBoost engine

The facelifted Ford EcoSport was launched in India in November last year, but some dealerships are still left with stocks of the pre-facelift Ford EcoSport. According to a report from Autocar India, select dealerships are offering a discount of around INR 1.5 lakh on the discontinued model. As appealing as it may sound at heavy discounts, the pre-facelift Ford EcoSport was devoid of a number of features available in the facelifted Ford EcoSport, which has more than 1,600 changes. Features like projector headlamps with LED DRLs, 8-inch SYNC 3 touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and two illuminated USB ports were unavailable in the old Ford EcoSport. The old Ford EcoSport did offer more engine choices, though. There were three options: 1.5L TiVCT four-cylinder petrol, 1.0L EcoBoost three-cylinder petrol and 1.5L TDCi four-cylinder diesel. The facelifted Ford EcoSport has swapped both the petrol engines with a new 1.5L TiVCT three-cylinder petrol engine but … [Read more...] about Select dealers offering INR 1.5 lakh discount on pre-facelift Ford EcoSport
Overview The Ford EcoSport is pretty much responsible for shaping the compact SUV segment as we know it. It wasn’t technically the first to arrive, though. That race was won by the Premier Rio, but let’s discount that considering it wasn’t exactly from a mainstream brand and that the number of Rios on Indian roads can be counted on fingers. When launched in June 2013, the sub-4m SUV generated so much interest that at one point, dealers had to stop accepting bookings. 5 years down the line, the advent of new rivals from Maruti Suzuki, Tata, and Honda has Ford feeling the heat. Enter the 2017 Ford EcoSport. A new face, revamped interior, and a new petrol drivetrain are the highlights of the facelift. So, is the new EcoSport as likeable as the original? Is it better than the original? Or has it fallen behind new entrants? We spent some time behind the wheel of a Ford EcoSport Petrol AT in the fully loaded Titanium+ spec to determine just that. What’s New? … [Read more...] about 2017 Ford EcoSport Petrol Automatic (Titanium+)
