Ford is looking forward to introduce its EcoSport at the Shanghai Motor Show 2017. After the Indian-variant, the Ford EcoSport is expected to get a revamped version to suit the Chinese automotive market. However, not much is expected to change when compared to its sister variant in the India.
As far as the revamped style of the premium SUV, Ford EcoSport will include new set of alloy wheels which will accompany a spoiler with a mounted tailgate. Additional feature includes a moulded cover as well. This layout feature is not seen in European variant of the vehicle anymore. Interior changes are also mostly unchanged except for a new dashboard and a centrally-placed Ford SYNC 3 touchscreen infotainment system.
As far as the engine is concerned, the Ford EcoSport will be offered with a choice of either 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol model or 1.5-litre petrol variant. Besides one of the previous choices, the SUV will include a 2.0-litre Duratec diesel motor which will accompany AWD system. Chinese variant will, however, not include automatic transmission for the petrol unit but will feature a six-speed select shift manual gearbox instead of the PowerShift DCT unit.
Luckily the facelifted Ford EcoSport will also launch some time later in India as well with almost similar styling and specs.
