Ford of Brazil have announced the 2015 model year updates for the EcoSport. The crossover does not get any styling changes on the outside, or the inside for that matter, but new colors have been included in the lineup.

The three new body colors – Solid White Vanilla, Dublin Metallic Silver and Pearlescent Red Merlot – are seen in these images. In India, Ford offers a brighter shade of white and an identical silver shade called ‘Moondust Silver’. The Red Merlot is unavailable in the country though.
