The Ford EcoSport facelift will draw power from the new 1.5-litre 3-cylinder Ti-VCT petrol motor, unveiled earlier this month. The new engine is more powerful (generates 123PS/150Nm) than the existing one – power and torque have gone up by 10 per cent and 7 per cent, respectively. Despite being powerful, it consumes 7 per cent lesser fuel compared to the present 1.5-litre 4-cylinder mill. It will be paired to a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission. The other engines – 1.0-litre EcoBoost and the 1.5-litre diesel – are expected to be carried forward from the present EcoSport.

The EcoSport has got new rivals this time around in the name of the Tata Nexon and the Honda WRV, besides the segment-leader Maruti Vitara Brezza.

We expect the EcoSport facelift’s prices to climb up by Rs 10,000-20,000 across variants. We’ll have to wait and see to know the exact prices of the new EcoSport. What’s your guess? Do let us know in the comments section below.
