2018 Ford EcoSport Crossover SUV Vehicle Review
The brand-new 2018 Ford EcoSport is truly one of a kind when it comes to compact crossover SUV’s. It has style, comfort and security. If there is a feature you’d like in your next car, you’ll likely find it in the Ford EcoSport. If you think Ford’s new crossover SUV is the right vehicle for you, then go see Joe at Sheridan Ford!
With SYNC ®3, you can sync your phone with either Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ to hear all your favorite music, podcasts and audiobooks. SYNC ®3 compatibility allows for voice-recognition and an 8” touchscreen allows you to make calls, respond to messages and use pinch-to-zoom navigation. SYNC ®3 in the Ford EcoSport puts the world at your fingertips.
With SYNC ®3 connected to Ford Pass™ you can also check your fuel level, lock, unlock and start your EcoSport Crossover SUV remotely, and schedule service. Not only is the EcoSport technologically sound, but SYNC ®3 connected to Ford Pass™ adds a level of convenience to your daily life.
The Ford EcoSport packs a punch with the Ford exclusive EcoBoost® engine, and handles the road very well. It’s important to pay attention to the road before you, but BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System), a rearview camera, and hill start assist work together to further assist your drive.
The Ford EcoSport has an optimized fuel economy, getting 27 mpg in a city setting, 29 mpg on the highway and a combined 28 mpg. Additionally, to reduce consumption, your EcoSport’s engine will turn off while at a red light and, smoothly, start back up when you put your foot back on the gas pedal. You can opt to turn this feature on or off, but for the environmentally conscious, it allows you to reduce your vehicle’s emissions.
While the EcoSport may seem like a smaller SUV, that doesn’t mean it’s not fully equipped with storage and cargo space. The EcoSport standard Cargo Management System features an adjustable rear load floor and shelf you can get to call the shots plus decide how to store what you need. You can create even more space with various cargo nets and organizers. Folding your back seats down will create even more space for larger items you must move!
