All-new 2018 Ford EcoSport Compact SUV

Life on the island is amazing with stunning scenery all around. The highways, however, leave much to be desired. Getting around on Vancouver Island requires a vehicle that is efficient for the long stretches between towns and versatile to carry everything you need. What’s more, it has to be fun to drive!

The all-new 2018 Ford EcoSport has arrived, and it’s ideal for the island life. Here’s what you need to know about the Ford EcoSport, courtesy of your local Ford detailer in Courtenay, BC, Westview Ford.

An All-New Model for 2018

The Ford EcoSport bridges the gap between cars and SUVs. It’s an extremely efficient compact SUV with oodles of space inside, an attractive exterior stance, and the capability to get you where you need to go in all conditions.

With two efficient powertrains and available Intelligent AWD, the 2018 Ford EcoSport sets the performance standard for compact SUVs. And with looks as good as this, it’s bound to be a popular choice.

Functional Style

One look is all it takes to be captivated by the Ford EcoSport. This compact SUV is available in 10 daring colours and comes standard with alloy wheels on all trim levels. On SE, SES, and Titanium trims, LED signature lighting and halogen headlights are attractive and luminescent, drawing attention to the curvy body.

When you think you’ve seen the whole picture, someone opens the tailgate. Unlike most compact SUVs, the EcoSport’s tailgate swings wide open, like a station wagon, giving much less constricting access to the cargo area.

On the interior, the upholstery carries the same tune as the outside. Patterns in both cloth and leather interiors are unique and playful, especially the colour accents in the SES trim.

The Equipment You Want

Every 2018 Ford EcoSport is well-equipped with air conditioning, Intelligent Access with push-button start, power windows, locks, and mirrors, and a rearview camera. On the SE, SES, and Titanium trims, SYNC 3 with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is included for amazing connectivity. The EcoSport Titanium goes further yet, including B&O PLAY Premium Audio, voice-activated Navigation, and an 8-inch in-dash touchscreen display.

On the SE and higher trims, 6-way power heated seats are standard equipment, cutting the chill on rainy days common on the BC coast. And on Titanium models, SYNC Connect lets you start, unlock, and locate your Ford EcoSport from your smartphone.

The Power You Need

When it comes to performance, the 2018 Ford EcoSport is ready for the challenge. Choose from two different options, both well-suited for a fun driving experience.

  • A 123-hp EcoBoost 1.0-liter three-cylinder is the engine of choice for the Ford EcoSport S, SE, and Titanium trims. It’s a front-wheel-drive model that uses a 6-speed SelectShift automatic transmission to achieve enjoyable driving and fuel efficiency.
  • On the Ford EcoSport SES, a Ti-VCT 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 166 horsepower is under the bonnet. The inline-four pairs with a 6-speed SelectShift transmission and Ford’s Intelligent AWD system for supreme traction and a thoroughly entertaining driving experience.
  • Discover the compact SUV that sets the bar high. It’s the all-new 2018 Ford EcoSport, and it’s available to Courtenay and the surrounding communities of Comox, Powell River, and the Sunshine Coast from Westview Ford.
