Compact SUV Fits Minimalist Lifestyle

If being on the go is more important to you than owning material possessions, plan on visiting Chapman Ford in early 2018 to check out the new Ford EcoSport compact SUV. The EcoSport was recently revealed via Snapchat to the world and through an interactive Hollywood pop-up experience to a large crowd. It is the perfect vehicle for the modern commuter, with an emphasis on fun and technology instead of size. “More people are choosing to spend their time and money sharing experiences with friends and family instead of buying more stuff,” according to Ford marketing director Chantel Lenard. “EcoSport fits perfectly into this growing lifestyle. It’s our smallest SUV, packed with features and personality.”

Small SUV, Big Sound

The size of the vehicle may be small, but the premium B&O PLAY audio system delivers a big concert sound. Harman Kardon engineers developed the system through hundreds of hours of hard work, incorporating 10 speakers and a subwoofer to pump 675 watts of audio power through the cabin. SYNC 3, Ford’s communications system that also controls your entertainment through powerful voice recognition software, will also be available in the EcoSport. Coupled with an 8-inch color touchscreen, SYNC 3 gives easy control of your smart phone apps through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Ready for All Your Personal Electronics

With two USB charging ports that deliver ultra fast power to bring your electronics back to full life, the Ford EcoSport is designed with the modern commuter in mind. Two 12-volt outlets and a 110-volt outlet give additional power wherever you and your passengers may need it. The SYNC Connect app is another feature of the new Ford EcoSport, letting you locate your vehicle as well as start, lock and unlock it from any location using your smart phone. You can also view important vehicle information, including how much gas is in the tank, from your phone.

Plenty of Power From Two Engine Choices

When you go to Chapman Ford in early 2018 to pick up your new EcoSport, you’ll have the choice of a 1.0L turbocharged EcoBoost engine or a 2.0L four-cylinder motor. If you pick the 2.0L, you’ll get Ford’s Intelligent 4-wheel drive as a standard feature. Both engines will utilize a smooth-shifting 6-speed automatic transmission. Although the EPA has not yet released mileage ratings, you can expect the EcoSport will get near-hybrid figures without the added cost of a hybrid powertrain.
