The 2017 Ford EcoSport facelifted version will make its Brazilian debut at the 2016 Sao Paulo Auto Show on 8th of November.
According to the reports, Sao Paulo will host the official debut of the new Ford EcoSport if the new compact SUV does not see its world premiere in China this month. The 2017 EcoSport will be launched in Brazil and will be followed by the Indian launch.
The exterior design of the 2017 Ford EcoSport will be inspired by the Ford Kuga. The interior will also see an overhaul with new steering wheel and instrument panel.
The South American version of the 2017 EcoSport is likely to get new 1.5-litre ‘Dragon' three-cylinder naturally aspirated engine. It will be interesting to see if this new unit makes it to India.
But it is speculated that the India-spec 2017 Ford Ecoboost will continue with the same engine options as the existing model.
In India, the new EcoSport will be powered by 1-litre EcoBoost petrol engine, 1.5-litre Ti-VCT petrol, and 1.5-litre TDCi diesel engine. The 1.5-litre Ti-VCT petrol unit will be offered with an option of manual or automatic transmission.
The updated compact SUV from the US automaker will go on sale from 2017 in Brazil. According to reports, it will debut in USA at 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show next month. But interestingly the US-spec Ford EcoSport will be exported from India.
