2018 Ford EcoSport

Bridge the gaps between modern comfort, sporty performance, and thrifty fuel economy in the all-new 2018 Ford EcoSport.

What Is the Ford EcoSport?

The 2018 Ford EcoSport is an all-new model, combining the best aspects of thrifty subcompact cars and sporty SUVs into one uniquely modern subcompact SUV. Inside, the EcoSport is taller and wider than family-style sedans, like the Fusion, giving you and your family the space you need to travel in comfort. It's also packed with all the latest tech gadgets, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, smartphone integration features that keep you connected without distracting you from traffic. Safety aids are also in abundance, and items like blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert keep you extra vigilant in a tight spot. The EcoSport even maximizes your fuel usage, earning up to 27 city/29 highway mpg.

Which EcoSport Is Best?

With four trims on the dealership lot, there's a 2018 Ford EcoSport to suit every lifestyle. The base S model is impressively equipped with a rearview camera and Bluetooth/USB connectivity, and it goes easy on your budget with the line's lowest MSRP. The mid-range SE doesn't cost much more than the base model, but creates a plusher ride to work. You'll get a power moonroof, dual-zone climate controls, and upgraded cloth upholstery.

In the sporty EcoSport SES, even grocery-getting can be fun. Sport-tuned suspension help you take sharp turns with precision, and steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters allow you to downshift. If you're looking for the best of the best, the 2018 Ford EcoSport Titanium model should be your choice. The cabin's leather upholstery speaks to a much more expensive vehicle and the nine-speaker stereo system is audiophile-approved.

Can the Ford EcoSport Tow?

This subcompact SUV fits gracefully into a parallel parking space and provides you a thrifty commute, but it's also big on utility. Off the assembly line, the 2018 Ford EcoSport can't tow. But, when you add the proper equipment, you can create an economical hauler with a tow rating of up to 1,400 pounds. Whenever you want to take your four-wheeler or Jet Ski out to play, you can count on the EcoSport to get in on the action.

Are EcoSports 4WD? AWD?

The all-new 2018 Ford EcoSport comes standard with front-wheel drive, but you can add all-wheel drive to any model. There's one exception - the sporty EcoSport SES comes standard with all-wheel drive, putting a little extra stick in your turns and increasing traction on wet or icy pavement straight off the assembly line.
