Ford EcoSport to be launched next month in India


Good news ahead for all Ford enthusiasts, as the new Ford EcoSport compact SUV is all set to be launched in June 2013. Ford India is yet to make a public announcement about this, but a mass email has been sent to all who have subscribed for a newsletter about EcoSport updates.


The new compact SUV will be offered in three engine options and four trim levels, which will be a 1.5-litre petrol, a 1.5-litre diesel and the much-talked-about 1-litre EcoBoost petrol. The 1.5-litre petrol engine will be offered by the company with a 6-speed automatic option and will be sold in high-end trims.

The four versions of the vehicle will be known as Ambiente, Titanium, Trend and Titanium Plus. The new EcoSport features top-of-the-line Titanium Plus trim with curtain bags, push-button start, keyless entry and leather upholstery, apart from the usual set of creature comforts.

The company will be making a global launch and cars will be assembled in Russia, at the Ford Sollers plant in Tatarstan. Russia is also planning to have a new engine plant with an investment of $274 million.
