The revolutionary 1.0-litre 3-cylinder Ford EcoBoost petrol engine is a six times winner of the International Engine of the Year awardTooltip. And no wonder. With a choice of 100PS, 125PS and 140PS, you’ll enjoy all the exhilarating performance you’d expect from a conventional 1.6 engine, but also see around better fuel economy and lower CO2 emissions.
The 1.5-litre Ford EcoBlue is a brand diesel engine and EcoSport is the first vehicle to be powered by it. Its four cylinder, turbocharged, fuel injected technology can generate a potent 100PS and 125PS.
When you stop at traffic lights or your vehicle is idling in a queue, this technology can automatically switch off the engine (while still supplying power to essentials like the headlights, air-conditioning, radio and the Ford SYNC system). When you're ready to move, just depress the clutch and select first gear as usual, or release the brake on an automatic, and the system restarts. Auto Start-Stop is particularly effective in town and city streets, where it can really help cut fuel consumption.
An advanced, 6-speed synchromesh manual gearbox is designed to increase the speed and accuracy of your gear changes, including reverse. As well as making driving more engaging and more fun, the transmission can help improve fuel economy and reduce noise, too.
If you like the convenience of an automatic gearbox, you’ll love the one you’ll find in EcoSport. Not only does the system deliver super-smooth, quiet and fuel-efficient gear changes, you’ll get excellent initial acceleration too. You also get reassurance: the gearbox is highly reliable and the oil never needs to be changed.
Normally only found on high end sports cars, Paddle Shifters are available with your EcoSportTooltip. This racing-inspired technology puts swift, effortless gear changes at your fingertips. And because the Paddle Shifters are mounted on the steering wheel, you can change gear more efficiently when cornering.
A Shift Indicator light on the instrument panel tells you when to change gear for maximum fuel efficiency. It’s a simple but effective way to help make every journey more economical.
An on-board trip computer gives you useful facts and figures about your mileage, fuel consumption, speed and the outside air temperature. It also includes ‘distance to empty’: roughly how far you can go on the fuel left in the tank. This is particularly useful on long journeys, or if you know you’ll be driving somewhere remote.
