Ford Unveils Revamped EcoSport SUV

The trend of the oversized grills continues. Ahead of schedule, Ford debuted the new EcoSport that is expected to begin sales later this year. The SUV will house a turbocharged, direct-injected, 1.0-liter, three-cylinder engine for an output of 118 horsepower

"The 1.0-litre EcoBoost delivers great low-speed responsiveness, power, torque, and smoothness," Ford's vice president of global power-train engineering Joe Bakaj said. "To produce an engine with such impressive performance and fuel economy clearly reflects our commitment to be class-leading in fuel economy around the world." 

The five-speed transmission EcoSport is geared towards markets like India, Brazil, and Asia, so don't expect to see this specific vehicle in the U.S. anytime soon.
