American auto major Ford has recently introduced the more rugged and off-road ready version of the EcoSport. Named as the EcoSport Storm, this beefed up version of the popular subcompact SUV was unveiled in Brazil. The new Ford EcoSport Storm boasts of a number of sportier styling updates, added features and even mechanical updates to make it offer improved off-road capabilities.
The most noteworthy updates of the Ford EcoSport Storm are the Ford F-150 Raptor-inspired front grille that flaunts the ‘STORM’ moniker and of course the new 4 Wheel Drive system to offer improved traction. The new rugged avatar of the EcoSport will initially be available for sale only in the South American car markets. Nevertheless, at a later date it is expected to be launched in other car markets as well. As the the Brazilian car market is quite similar to that of the Indian car market, and as the Ford EcoSport is a highly successful product here, it is thought that Ford would consider bringing the new EcoSport Storm to India to further enhance the attraction of the SUVs lineup in India.
