POWER AND EFFICIENCY

More of what you need, less of what you don’t.

No one should be a regular at their petrol station. That’s why the Ford EcoSport is designed to give you excellent fuel economy and responsive power, which means you’ll be seeing the guys at the pu20mp a lot less frequently.

92kW EcoBoost petrol engine

Thanks to its impressive fuel economy, the 92kW 3-cylinder EcoBoost Petrolecosport-power-1 has been awarded International Engine of the Year for three years running. But that’s what you’d expect from an engine this small, right? What you don’t expect is its power. In fact, this turbocharged petrol engine delivers 92kWecosport-power-2 of power, 170Nmecosport-power-3 of torque and a thrifty 5.7L per 100kmecosport-power-3.

Power and economy

without compromise

When it comes to power, the turbocharged 92kW EcoBoost can easily compete with a traditional 1.6L petrol engine, delivering full torque at just 1500rpm. That’s a lot of power in an economical 3-cylinder footprint. But that’s what makes it so exceptional.

Fuel-saving design

The EcoSport has a drag coefficient of 0.365. But why should you care? Because it means more fuel saving, thanks to an aerodynamic design that reduces friction. From its teardrop shape to small details like the rear pillar kicker, it all works to limit wind resistance and reduce fuel consumption.

EPAS (with Pull-Drift Compensation)

Stable, responsive steering is the mark of a high-quality drive, and the EcoSport doesn’t disappoint. Electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) adjusts to feel "lighter" in slow traffic and "heavier" at higher speeds for better control. At the same time, it adapts to changing road and weather conditions, compensating for factors like cross-winds and potholes. Best of all, it only comes to your assistance when it’s needed, saving you fuel as you drive.

Six-speed PowerShift

Looking for the fuel efficiency of a manual but the ease of an automatic? The six-speed PowerShift automatic transmission delivers both, with two clutches working together for gear changes that are hardly noticeable. Or if you’re more of a manual driver, you’ll love the responsiveness of the five-speed manual transmission.
