The Ford EcoSport is a Compact SUV designed and built in Brazil by Ford. The EcoSport is one of Ford's best-seller models in Mexico, Argentina and Brazil. Its main competitors are the Fiat Idea Adventure, Volkswagen CrossFox and Chevrolet Tracker. Below is next Ford Ecosport that will be lauched in 2008
All models have front-wheel drive with manual transmission as standard. The 2.0-litre model can also receive a four-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel drive. In the latter case, an electronically-controlled system lets the driver engage the rear axle from the dashboard.
Since the EcoSport went on sale, the car has sold well, consistently appearing on the 10 best-selling vehicles on Brazil list.
In late 2007 a restyling was introduced, which renewed the front to bring it closer to modern Ford pick-ups as well as the recent Brazilian Fiesta restyling, and updated the rear lights and interior materials.
