Available only in a single S trim, the 1.0L EcoBoost engine produces power worth 125PS against 170Nm of torque. The Ford EcoSport EcoBoost was priced at Rs 10.95 lakh, thus making it Rs 95,000 more expensive than the top-spec Titanium+ trim. The latter one comes with a 1.5L Dragon petrol engine paired to a manual gearbox.
The American carmaker might re-introduce the EcoBoost badge on the EcoSport lineup by using the Mahindra XUV300’s 1.2L T-GDI motor. Though, the company hasn’t yet said anything officially about it. The XUV300 petrol, paired to a 6-speed manual gearbox, returns a claimed power of 110PS and 200Nm of torque.
The Ford EcoSport also comes with 1.5L, 3-cylinder petrol and 1.5L, 4-cylinder diesel engine options. While the former makes a top power of 99bhp with 205Nm of torque, the latter delivers 120bhp with 150Nm. Both motors get a 5-speed manual gearbox.
