5 Reasons We Love the EcoSport

The Ford EcoSport is a consumer favorite for good reason. It’s a quality vehicle loaded with fun features at an affordable price. There is a lot to love about the Ford EcoSport, and here are Mohawk Ford’s top five.

Unique Interior and Exterior Options

The Ford EcoSport lets you choose an interior that stands out with the SE Appearance Package, featuring 17” black alloy wheels, a 6-way power driver’s seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and orange instrument panel appliques. The cloth seating with orange copper accents adds a stylish flair. In addition, the New Overlander decals provide even more personality and creativity for your EcoSport.

The color choices are yet another way to make an individual statement. Is red your favorite color? The EcoSport comes in two shades. And if you want a car people notice, check out the Luxe Yellow option.

The EcoSport offers all of this and a roomy interior. After all, when your vehicle is this sharp, everyone will want a ride!

Impressive Capability

The EcoSport has the capability and capacity to match your lifestyle with the 2.0L Ti-VCT engine, which delivers 4WD as a standard feature to give you added traction in challenging conditions. With fuel economy averages of 27 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway, the Ford EcoSport is an efficient vehicle. Everyone appreciates fewer stops for fuel!

Fun Features

Ford made the new model even more fun with standard and available options to tailor your EcoSport for your tastes.

Ambient LED lighting in seven colors (red, blue, purple, orange, aqua, white, or yellow-green) makes any drive more pleasant. With seven different intensities emitting from the front console, cupholder, door release handles, front-door map pockets, and front footwells, you can adjust the lighting effect for your mood.

Imagine the fun you’ll have with your car lit up inside while you enjoy the seven-speaker sound system. When your friends ask who wants to drive for a night out, you’ll be the first to volunteer!

Who doesn’t love a star-filled sky overhead on a summer evening drive? You can enjoy a moonroof in the EcoSport with the touch of a button. We especially love that this is a standard feature on the SE, SES, and Titanium models.

Whether you are a sales rep on the move or a college student on the go, the unique swing gate with a hideaway latch provides unexpected flair to loading and unloading. The available Cargo Management System and 60/40 split-fold back seat allow you to get the most of the vehicle’s space to meet your cargo needs.

Smart Technology Features

Technologies like available SYNC 3 with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility keep you connected with ease. You can even bring along Amazon’s Alexa for the ride with the available app. The popular Waze app integration is a smart technology feature that keeps you on track and your eyes on the road. Having all these features at your fingertips is another reason to love the Ford EcoSport.

EcoSport Safety Features

Ford’s Co-Pilot360 driver assistance is just one of several safety features we appreciate in its models. We want our customers to be safe, and Ford makes that a priority. Our sales consultants are happy to go over the available and standard safety features of the EcoSport.

Safety features within Ford’s Co-Pilot360 include:

  • BLIS with Cross-Traffic Alert. Lights on your side-view mirrors alert you to the presence of a vehicle in your blind spot. With this feature, you can rest assured you’re in the clear when changing lanes.
  • Hill Start Assist. It’s nerve-racking to keep your vehicle from rolling backward when stopped on an incline. That’s no longer a problem with Hill Start Assist in your EcoSport. The system works with your brakes to keep the car in place while you transition your foot from the brake to the accelerator.
  • Voice-Activated Touchscreen Navigation. Enter your destination into the navigation system, and your vehicle gives you turn-by-turn directions. You stay focused on the road with no worries about missing a turn.
  • Reverse Sensing System. When you’re in reverse, if there is something in the vehicle’s path, it emits a warning sound. If you get closer to the object, the alert speeds up. Backing up is less stressful when your car is looking out for you!
