Two New Ford EcoSport Variants Coming just three months after launch. Ecoboost announcement could follow according to latest reports
As per the spy shots floating all over the internet we know that Two New Ford EcoSport Variants are coming, namely the Titanium S and Signature Edition. But there is something really special that also add to the EcoSports line up. Ford will be introducing a performance-based 1.0 litre EcoBoost engine for the EcoSport.
Once launched the EcoBoost powered EcoSport Titanium S trim will be the top spec variant. With the launch of this model, Ford is aiming for the customers who want the EcoSport with a peppy engine and something better than the standard car. In addition to this, the EcoBoost Titanium S variant will also feature a stiffer suspension which will provide better handling and quick steering.
On the other hand, the Titanium S variant will also get a 1.5 litre diesel engine as an option which produces 100 bhp of power. This Trim will also get addition sunroof and 17-inch alloy wheels. Whereas standard features on the Titanium S variant include an HID headlight unit, tweaked instrument cluster, tyre pressure monitoring system and a 4.2-inch infotainment system. Well on the exteriors Ford is providing black inserts on the grille, a new paint – Satin Orange with colour coordinated interiors and contrast sunroof.
That’s all for the Titanium S trim speaking about the Signature Edition, this trim will be based on the Titanium + variant. Aesthetically, the EcoSport Signature Edition will get a new design 17-inch alloy wheel, black inserts on the front grille and at the rear, it will get a spoiler. The interiors will get the Special Edition badge all over the seats along with all black theme with blue stitches. This blue stitch is featured as a contrast to the new exterior paint scheme- Anodised Blue. Powering the Signature edition EcoSport will be 1.5-litre Dragon series petrol engine that produces 123bhp of power and an optional 1.5-litre diesel mill that produces 100 bhp of power.
There are some rumours about a new six-speed manual gearbox which will be introduced. But the 1.5litre petrol and diesel engines will be coupled with the same five-speed IB5 gearbox. Both the trims are expected to be launched in the coming of May 2018.
