2018 Ford EcoSport Review

Maneuverable enough for Scranton's city streets yet capable enough for a trip up to Mount Pocono, the 2018 Ford EcoSport has a lot to offer drivers in the Tobyhanna, Pocono Pines, and Blakeslee areas. The team at Ray Price Ford wanted to show you what to expect from this SUV, so we've put together this 2018 Ford EcoSport review in which we'll show you some of our favorite features!

2018 Ford EcoSport Performance Specs

The powertrain in the 2018 EcoSport offers a balance between drivability and efficiency. The standard engine is a 1.0L EcoBoost® I-3 engine that delivers 123 horsepower and 125 lb-ft of torque. This engine is paired with a lightweight and efficient front-wheel drivetrain (FWD) that helps you achieve an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 28 combined MPG. 

A 2.0L I-4 engine is also available. This option delivers a bigger surge of power, putting out 166 horsepower and 149 lb-ft of torque while also achieving an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 25 combined MPG. This comes standard with an Intelligent Four-Wheel Drive system that actively monitors your roadway conditions and automatically redistributes torque between all four wheels to improve traction. 

Both engines come with Auto Start-Stop technology and a 6-speed SelectShift® automatic transmission. 

Ford EcoSport Interior and Cargo Space

The 2018 Ford EcoSport may be a subcompact SUV, but it makes the most out of every cubic foot of space inside the cabin. In total, there's 91.1 cubic feet of passenger space between all five seats. With the rear seat upright, you'll have 20.9 cubic feet of trunk space. 

If you have a lot to bring along, fold the rear seat down flat to open up a total of 50 cubic feet of cargo space. The cargo area is adaptable to your needs, thanks to 60/40 split-folding rear seats and a Cargo Management System, the latter of which allows you to adjust the load-floor height. 

This cargo space is easily accessible thanks to the swing-gate rear hatch that opens out like a fifth door. As an added bonus, a climate-controlled glove box can help keep your lunch cool whether you're heading to work or hitting the road. 

2018 EcoSport Technology

When you take the wheel of the Ford EcoSport, you can expect to find several technology features that'll help make your drives more entertaining and convenient than ever.

The SYNC® voice recognition communications and entertainment system comes standard, but SYNC® 3 is available as an upgrade. This comes with an 8-inch floating touchscreen where you can display music or navigation information from your Apple CarPlay™- or Android Auto™-compatible smartphone. 

With the SYNC® Connect system, you'll also have a 4G LTE modem with Wi-Fi hotspot compatibility so that you can stream media while using less of your smartphone data. For added convenience while driving on the highway, available BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) will help you stay aware of traffic in your blind spots.
