Sporty and efficient, the 2021 Ford EcoSport is a small crossover with big ideas. Choose this little Ford for city-friendly dimensions and trail-friendly options, like all-wheel drive. With its low price and impressive feature lineup, the EcoSport is a very coveted crossover. Let’s take a closer look at everything it has to offer.
What’s new for the 2021 Ford EcoSport?
For 2021, the EcoSport gets a few new standard features and new exterior styling. On the mid-grade SE model and up, the EcoSport now comes standard with a cargo cover and package tray to help you secure and organize your cargo items. The top-tier SES and Titanium trims now include a power driver’s seat to help you get extra comfortable behind the wheel.
Why choose the 2021 Ford EcoSport?
With a starting price of just $20,395, the EcoSport is a very attainable small crossover SUV. This little Ford also gives you a lot for your money, with a robust list of standard features and lots of available infotainment options.
As far as compact crossovers go, the EcoSport delivers an especially roomy cabin and cargo hold, giving you plenty of room for heads, legs, and elbows. Behind the rear seats, you’ll find 20.9 cubic feet of cargo space.
Unlike most small crossovers, the EcoSport also offers your choice of two engine options:
- Standard 1.0L turbocharged three-cylinder engine (123 horsepower, 125 lb-ft of torque)
- Optional 2.0L four-cylinder engine (166 hp, 149 lb-ft)
Both are linked to a six-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard, but all-wheel drive is optional. With all-wheel drive, you automatically get the 2.0-liter engine upgrade.
Which features are available?
Every EcoSport impresses with a tech-savvy standard features lineup, including a Wi-Fi hotspot, two USB charging ports, and power windows and door locks.
Move up one trim level, to the SE, for an increasingly modern ride. The SE adds more sporty utility with LED running lights, fog lights and roof rails. This model also includes a wider range of smartphone-friendly features, including an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment interface and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The SE’s sunroof and tinted rear windows light up and cool down the cabin, respectively.
The SES is both sporty and stylish, full of gloss-black trim and exclusive performance features. Its sport-tuned suspension and Black 17-inch wheels set it apart from other EcoSport models. The SES also comes standard with all-wheel drive and the more powerful 2.0-liter engine.
Finally, when you choose the top-trim EcoSport Titanium, you’ll enjoy even greater interior comfort and modern convenience. Like the SES, the Titanium includes a heated steering wheel and leather-trimmed seats. But it also adds a premium nine-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and heated exterior mirrors.
How long will the 2021 Ford EcoSport last?
This sporty little crossover was designed to last. With proper maintenance, you can expect your EcoSport to travel far into the future with you.
And your purchase of a brand new EcoSport also comes with Ford’s excellent warranty coverage. This includes five years or 60,000 miles of limited powertrain coverage, so if anything unexpected does occur, you can bring your EcoSport back to the dealership service department for a pain-free fix.
