The Ford EcoSport has been a very successful model. The American car major had given a mild refresh to the EcoSport in India. However recently, a number of reports are saying that the EcoSport has received a major update and that this model has already commenced its testing phase and being spotted around the world while testing on the roads. So, the new refreshed Ford EcoSport is much in news and is expected to turn things in its favor once it hits the market.
Here is a list of 4 things that are most likely to be found on the upcoming 2017 Ford EcoSport facelift:
New Front Fascia
As the new upcoming Ford EcoSport facelift is speculated to have received a major update. It is more than safe to say that the sub-compact SUV mode will come with a restyled front façade. Major facelift models invariably all come with redesigned face and the same is expected with the Ford EcoSport facelift. By restyled front fascia, we don’t mean additional styling elements like simply added LED Daytime Running Lights or so, as they are usually part of mild updates and already seen in the recently introduced Ford EcoSport Signature Edition in the Indian market. We a talking about a full redesign up front which would comprise of a new hexagonal front radiator grille, restyled headlights, new bumper and refreshed air dam design.
Refreshed Rear Design
When the front façade of the Ford EcoSport mini SUV is expected to get a full redesign, then the rear design of the vehicle is also obviously likely to get a refresh. The rear end of the car is expected to get endowed with newly styled tail lights and a restyled bumper.
The refreshed 2017 EcoSport will be coming with updates not only on the outside, but on the inside as well. In fact, the facelift model is expected to come with major interior changes which will be the real attraction of the model. The vehicle is likely to get a restyled centre console, a new Sync infotainment system and a new steering wheel among other expected additional features.
A New Powertrain?
There have been high speculations regarding a new engine on the refreshed EcoSport. However, as this is going to just a refreshed model and not a new generation model, it is most likely going to come with an enhancement in the ongoing engine. A better tuning of the engine to offer overall better performance along with a better fuel efficiency are what expected from the refreshed EcoSport’s under the hood improvements.
The Ford EcoSport is facing tough competition from the massively successful Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza mini SUV, but is still garnering good sales. The launch of the refreshed 2017 EcoSport with major updates is definitely expected to boost its sales in India.
