Entry-level crossover enters an already loaded market

The Ford EcoSport is now in the U.S. That’s probably not as big of a deal for some people, but it is important enough that Ford is actually bringing the small crossover to America after introducing it in other parts of the world. Kind of gives you an idea of how competitive the crossover and SUV markets are on our shores.

The EcoSport will be offered with either a 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine that delivers 123 horsepower and 125 pound-feet of torque. A bigger 2.0-liter four-cylinder is also available with 160 horses and 146 pound-feet of torque on tap. The model will also be available in four trim levels, beginning with the base S trim. The SE trim sits one rung above it, while the Titanium and SES trims make up the top-half of the EcoSport’s trim options.

Aesthetically, the U.S.-spec EcoSport is expected to carry a similar look compared to its counterpart on the global market. There are elements available on the Titanium and SES trims that aren’t available in the S and SE trims. That’s to be expected, considering that Ford would want these trim options to have unique touches and options that will separate them from the other.

Ford has also released pricing details on the EcoSport. The base S trim sells for $19,995 while the SE trim costs $22,095. Move up the chain of trim options and you can get the Titanium trim for $25,740. The SES trim rounds out the lot at $26,740.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
