The 2023 Ford EcoSport Redesign is coming with a significant makeover. This makes an exciting talk: what can we expect from this car’s comeback? Will there be many improvements to notice from all aspects of the vehicle? Although there are no official announcements, still, many predictions are published online. Here are some details of what improvement we will see on this upcoming comeback of EcoSport.
What We Can Expect from Ford EcoSport 2023 Improvement
Ford EcoSport is a subcompact SUV initially manufactured in Brazil—first introduced to the public in 2003. The car’s lineup is currently on its second generation since its release in 2012. It has been a long since then, that’s why people are expecting a significant design change, and of course, the coming of the third generation, if possible.
Although sources mentioned that the third generation of Ford EcoSport is coming with the 2023 Ford EcoSport redesign, it’s unfortunate to know that EcoSport will be discontinued in mid-2022. This is said to respond to the declining sales in both US and India.
So, will be the 2023 Ford EcoSport exist? We will never know. If a miracle happens, Ford EcoSport 2023 will be available to purchase. Then, what we are predicting right now will be available to compare with what you can see directly on the car itself.
The major redesign will be its exterior design if the car is soon to release. The five-door vehicle will remain in one model, yet it is predicted that the vehicle will slightly grow in size. Plus, there may be a change in its headlights. Its size may be smaller than the earlier release, yet it’s what makes this Ford lineup appears more premium. You may expect the grille to be designed with a 3D effect.
Following the headlight change, the taillights appear to have the opposite shift. It may turn wider, yet with less height, making it look extended to the center. While for the tires, 18-inch and 20-inch rims may remain as the two options, having the former option comes as the standard option.
Inside the Car
Coming with a slightly larger body size means you can get a somewhat larger interior space. What comes as the main change for the 2023 Ford EcoSport redesign will be its materials for the dash and seating. Overall, you may see its intelligent arrangement and design for a subcompact SUV.
As you come into the cabin, you may not get a big leg and headroom as you get from a bigger car. But the compartment is predicted to have an automatic temp control. This will benefit you much during extreme weather, such as freezing winter or a humid summer.
Additionally, you may also have the car provides SYNC3 infotainment system coming as a standard feature for your Ford EcoSport. This system will include an 8-inch touchscreen panel which may be large enough for a subcompact size of SUV.
Completing the feature, the driver assistance system is also expected to come as an exceptional feature for subcompact SUVs, only if the carmaker plans to infuse the subcompact car with an excellent quality that only pricier car gets.
What About Its ‘Under the Hood’ Aspect?
The talk about the 2023 Ford EcoSport redesign will not be complete if we don’t talk about its engine aspect. We better not hope much about its power production when talking about the engine.
Sources mentioned that the car might have the same engine options as the current model: the three-cylinder turbocharged engine with 1.0 L of displacement. The machine may produce a total power of 123 HP and a torque of 125 lb.-ft.
On the other side, you may also get another engine with 2.0 L of displacement. For this engine, the maximum power production of 168 HP with a torque of 152 lb.-ft comes from choosing a model with this upgraded engine version.
The 2023 Ford EcoSport redesign comes with a nice set fuel economy despite coming with All-Wheel Drive as its powertrain. This has to do with its upgraded automatic transmission, making it capable of using your fuel economically. The prediction for its fuel economy will be 26-28 mpg for combined use (city/highway).
