2019 Ford EcoSport: What's New?

It's not often that the Ford Motor Company introduces a never-before-seen model, but we got our first in a long time last year. The 2019 Ford EcoSport marks the second year for the popular subcompact crossover. If you missed your chance at the 2018 model, is its newer sibling worth the trip to Bill Colwell Ford? Here's why we think the answer's a resounding "yes."

2019 Ford EcoSport Details

Visitors to our Ford dealership near Waterloo IA will notice that the 2019 Ford EcoSport looks identical to the model it replaces. That's to be expected, since it's only the vehicle's second year. But there is some new tech on offer, which we'll get to shortly.

This subcompact SUV isn't as big as a Ford Explorer or Ford Escape, but its smaller size has its advantages. It's good at zipping in and out of rush hour traffic, finding parallel parking in Cedar Falls, and giving you and your passengers ample space for weekend getaways.

The available drivelines aren't designed for off-roading. With front-wheel drive and an available AWD system that relies more on torque vectoring than the traditional style found on other new Ford SUVs, it's better known for its manners on blacktop.

2019 Ford EcoSport Safety and Special Features

However, new Ford SUVs are known for their safety, so we expect the same here. A rearview camera is standard on all trims; upper trims get additional driver assist aids, like blind spot monitoring.As with last year's model, upper trims get the best features, including a moon roof, keyless entry, and leather seating.

This year's updates are also best seen in the upper reaches of the lineup, and include a new Black Appearance Package on the SES trim, added Amazon Alexa capability and Waze navigation, and an update to the FordPass™ Connect Wi-Fi hotspot.

*May vary by trim. Speak to your Ford dealer for details.
