Ford has a lot of popular SUV nameplates in the American market, like the Explorer, Expedition, and more. However, for 2018, another new name will be introduced to the lineup that will be making its home in another part of the world – namely, India. The small EcoSport SUV is getting imported from Indian factories to give Ford customers in the United States yet another option to choose from when it comes to the compact SUV segment.
More and more Americans are looking less into cars and are becoming more interesting in utility vehicles, hence the recent burst in crossovers that handle like smaller vehicles but have the capacity and comfort of an SUV. A lot of automakers are starting to produce vehicles focusing on the demographic of young up-and-comers settling down to start a family, and the EcoSport will be a perfect fit for anyone looking for a spacious family hauler that doubles as a sporty and efficient ride.
The small EcoSport SUV recently debuted during Ford’s segment at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The same nameplate has been available in various global markets for years, but the 2018 model year will be a new generation made specifically to appeal to the tastes of young American buyers. Look for it on the market sometime late 2017 or early 2018.
