2018 Ford EcoSport Review

Crossover shoppers in West Chester, Glen Mills, and Malvern can get excited because the 2018 Ford EcoSport is finally here! This brand-new model brings an exciting combination of efficiency, interior space, impressive technology, and much more.

We at Fred Beans Ford of West Chester have put together this detailed review to give you a taste of what this vehicle has in store for you. Let's get started by taking a peek under the hood!

Performance Specifications

The 2018 Ford EcoSport is standardly powered by a 1.0L EcoBoost® engine, front-wheel drivetrain, and 6-Speed SelectShift® Automatic Transmission. This impressive trio delivers a respectable 123 horsepower and 125 lb-ft of torque.

This standard engine also comes standardly equipped with Auto Start-Stop Technology, which smartly turns the engine off when you're stopped to conserve fuel. Thanks to this feature, the EcoSport gets an efficient 29 highway/27 city MPG.

You also have a few optional mechanical features to choose from including a second optional 2.0L Ti-VCT 4-cylinder engine. This engine is available in all four trim levels as well as the available Intelligent 4WD System.

Expansive Passenger & Cargo Space

As a crossover, the 2018 Ford EcoSport offers plenty of wiggle room for all five passengers in addition to more than enough room for all of your stuff. In the front seats of this vehicle, you'll have 42.9 inches of legroom and 39.6 inches of headroom while the back row sports 50.9 inches of hip room and 51.3 inches of shoulder room.

Even if you have all five seats in use, you'll have a remarkable 20.9 cubic feet of cargo space to take advantage of behind the rear seat. However, if you need more space, the 60/40 fold-flat rear seat backs will make this easy. Fold one, two, or three of the rear seats down to utilize every inch of the EcoSport's total cargo capacity of 50 cubic feet.

Impressive Technology Features

The 2018 Ford EcoSport isn't just efficient and spacious. This crossover is smart, too, with a variety of advanced technology features to offer. Standardly, you'll have the SYNC® infotainment system with Bluetooth® wireless audio streaming, voice command recognition, hands-free phone calling, and complimentary 911 Assist®.

This system also gives you plenty of upgrade options. Opt for the available SYNC® 3 infotainment system to access an 8-inch touchscreen as well as smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. You'll also have the impressive SYNC® Connect Wi-Fi Hotspot.

The EcoSport is also equipped with a number of smart active safety features including BLIS® (Blind Sport Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert. This feature acts like a second set of eyes on the road and gives you a heads up when there's something in your blind spots.
