Ford EcoSport facelift starts testing in the U.S. – Spied


Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.

Not available for sale in the U.S., as of now.

Spyshots of a camouflaged Ford EcoSport from the U.S. have surfaced online, courtesy of WorldCarFans, which ignite rumors of its eventual introduction in Ford’s home market.

The EcoSport received a mild model year update in India this year.

The front- and rear-end of the EcoSport are completely wrapped up, which suggest that Ford is working on a facelift for their compact offering. Expected changes include a 6-point grille that could be similar to the new Ford Edge and the facelifted Ford Escape, as well as revised headlights and taillights.

Like the exterior, the interior could also be subjected to an overhaul, so as to rival newer products like the Mazda CX-3, Renault Captur, and Honda HR-V. For 2016, the Euro-spec EcoSport underwent an update which features additional sound deadening material, a four-inch color display and a chrome pack inclusion.

The engine lineup is likely to remain unchanged, and includes a 1.0-liter EcoBoost with 123 hp, a 1.5-liter petrol with 110 hp, and a 1.5-liter diesel with 99 hp.

The EcoSport facelift could be rolled out towards the end of 2016, or in early-2017.
