Ford EcoSport Storm Concept
The Ford EcoSport Storm is inspired by the F150 Raptor pickup truck, “portraying power and strength”. Finished in the ‘Blue Storm’ exterior paint, the customized version sports an aggressive front fascia complete with a revised grille, secondary airdam and a black bumper which houses a silver skid plate.
Body decals, a partly black bonnet, flared wheel arches (finished in black) and 15-inch black alloy wheels with high profile 215/75 off-road tyres are the other lively parts of the car.
Ford EcoSport Beauty Concept
The EcoSport Beauty and Beast concepts attempt to portray the SUV in two different lights. The Beauty concept has an urban appeal with its matte metallic Copper Stardust exterior color and hexagonal secondary airdam which has stylish LED daytime running lights on either side. Other noteworthy features are side body decals, black roof and 18-inch alloy wheels.
Inside, the Beauty comes with four individual armchair type seats upholstered in leather, DVD screens and a multimedia infotainment system with GPS.

The EcoSport Beast concept is painted in a pearlescent Speed White with contrast decals and accents in black, orange and blue. The concept also gets a bonnet scoop, special 18-inch alloy wheels, LED foglamp clusters and a three-slat airdam.
