Ford has previewed the next EcoSport crossover at this week’s New Delhi Auto Expo.The compact crossover is based on Ford’s new global B-segment platform.
“The all-new Ford EcoSport reflects our commitment to serve our customers with the cars and trucks they truly want and value,” said Alan Mulally, president and CEO, Ford Motor Company. “Our engineering team used their years of EcoSport experience to make every aspect of the next-generation EcoSport even stronger.”
The EcoSport was developed in South America for emerging markets in South America and Asia, but it hasn’t been confirmed if the Fiesta-based crossover will be sold in North America. Under the hood the EcoSport will be powered by Ford’s new three-cylinder 1.0L EcoBoost engine.
“We’ve promised to bring more than 50 new vehicles and powertrains to Asia Pacific and Africa by mid-decade and the all-new EcoSport continues to deliver on that pledge,” said Joe Hinrichs, president, Ford Asia Pacific and Africa. “Endowed with traits that customers in markets like India will want and value, this exciting compact SUV will define a new segment in the small car market.”
