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.
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.
