Ford EcoSport on sale in India does not come with a 4WD option. But those sold in markets abroad, do have that option. Considering that both variants – 2WD and 4WD are made in India, it could be possible that Ford launches the 4WD variant in India and improve sales.
2018 Ford EcoSport 4WD which has been spotted, is a mid-spec variant, that is positioned between the base S and top-end Titanium variant.
In the US markets, Ford EcoSport is sold in four grades – S, SE, SES and Titanium. They all are powered by petrol engines, a 1.0 EcoBoost engine and 2.0 Ti-VCT 14 petrol engine mated to a 6 speed automatic transmission.
The model on test sporting a 4WD badge means that it is powered by a 2.0 liter Ti-VCT engine producing 166 hp power at 6,500 rpm and 202 Nm torque at 4,500 rpm mated to a 6 speed SelectShift automatic transmission with 4WD as standard. It sits on 17”, 7 spoke alloy wheels.
The US spec model measures 4,097mm in length which is 99mm longer than that sold in India which commands a sub 4 meter length so as to take advantage of tax cuts. The other difference between the India spec and US spec model is the lack a tail gate mounted spare wheel.
The Ford EcoSport is priced from US $ 19,995 (INR 13,78,155) for the base S trim going up to US$ 26,880 (INR 18,52,704) for the top of the line Ford EcoSport SES.
