Se presentó el restyling de la Ford EcoSport: todas las fotos y video

Muchos esperábamos ver la nueva Ford EcoSport 2017 en el Salón de San Pablo (Brasil). Pero la marca del Óvalo decidió esquivar al mercado donde su SUV para el Segmento B (chico) se convirtió en best-seller.

En su lugar, Ford decidió apostar a un nuevo mercado donde venderá su producto cada vez más global: Los Ángeles (Estados Unidos). La EcoSport 2017 se exhibirá desde hoy en Hollywood, Venice Beach y el Salón de Los Ángeles, con la promesa de lanzarla a la venta “a comienzos de 2018”.

Al Mercosur llegará antes, en la primera mitad del 2017, aunque todavía está por verse cuántas de todas estas mejoras se trasladarán a nuestro mercado.

No hay dudas de que el exterior será el mismo, con una nueva parrilla octogonal y rasgos tomados de otras SUVs más grandes de Ford.

En la parte trasera se aprecia que desapareció por completo la rueda de auxilio colgando del portón del baúl. Esto ya es una opción en Europa y lo será también en nuestra región. El problema es que, con esta opción, la rueda de auxilio del mismo tamaño de las otras cuatro es reemplazada apenas por un kit de reparación de pinchazos (para no robar espacio del pequeño baúl).

En la EcoSport yanki, la novedad más importante está en el interior, con cambios en la plancha de instrumentos, nuevos colores en las terminaciones y una enorme pantalla multimedia de ocho pulgadas, flotando sobre la consola central.

Cuenta con el sistema Sync3 con Mirror Screen y un equipo de audio premium B&O Play, desarrollado por Harman.

En Estados Unidos, la EcoSport se venderá con el 1.0 EcoBoost de tres cilindros (tracción delantera) y el conocido 2.0 16v de cuatro cilindros (4WD).

Go small, live big with all-new EcoSport – Ford’s smallest suv with the biggest personality

Los Angeles, Nov. 14, 2016 – Ford today introduces the all-new EcoSport for North America for those who want space-saving convenience and SUV capability.

The EcoSport – a fun, capable, connected compact SUV – stars in the world’s first-ever vehicle reveal on Snapchat, kicking off a Hollywood pop-up event open to the public through Wednesday evening.

The interactive event showcases how EcoSport is a perfect companion for those who believe in going small and living big.

“More people are choosing to spend their time and money sharing experiences with friends and family instead of buying more stuff,” said Chantel Lenard, ‎executive director, Ford U.S. marketing. “EcoSport fits perfectly into this growing lifestyle. It’s our smallest SUV, packed with features and personality.”

Fun sound, color and style

EcoSport’s available premium B&O Play audio system brings your music to life. Harman acoustic engineers spent hundreds of hours perfecting the in-vehicle music experience.

The Ford-exclusive B&O Play audio system, standard on EcoSport Titanium, features 10 speakers, including B&O PLAY-branded tweeters and woofers in the front doors and a subwoofer in back. The 675-watt system unlocks the power of your favorite music and transforms every drive into a “living big” experience.

EcoSport also features available HD Radio technology, SiriusXM® satellite radio and a dual FM radio antenna that boosts the range and clarity of FM signals.

Customers looking to stand apart from the crowd will find plenty of ways to personalize their EcoSport. Along with 10 exterior color choices, there are seven ambient lighting options and four trim level offerings – S, SE, SES and Titanium. All series feature a swing-gate-style tailgate.

The personality-packed SES series makes the biggest splash. It features Intelligent 4WD, sport-tuned suspension and steering, and unique styling cues inside and out – including bold copper accents for the interior and sport seats.

Connected technology

EcoSport makes it easy to stay in touch with friends and family with SYNC® 3, Ford’s communications and entertainment system. Faster, more intuitive and easier to use, the system provides more conversational voice recognition and enhanced response to driver commands. Optimized for hands-free use, SYNC 3 for EcoSport is coupled with a touch screen similar to a smartphone or tablet. The 8-inch screen gives front-row occupants easy access to operate available Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ commands, and B&O PLAY audio settings.

Drivers also have the ability to start, lock, unlock and locate their vehicle from almost anywhere using available SYNC Connect with FordPass®. The mobile app lets owners view vehicle information, such as the fuel level and odometer reading, when not in the vehicle.

EcoSport features two fast-charging USB ports to ensure owners’ devices are always juiced. Plus, there’s a 12-volt power outlet. An available 110-volt outlet positioned behind the center console and another 12-volt outlet allow rear-seat passengers to stay plugged in, too.

Capable, powerful and sporty

Equipped with either the award-winning, 1.0-liter three-cylinder turbocharged EcoBoost® or 2.0-liter four-cylinder, EcoSport provides power and control. Drivers opting for the 2.0-liter engine get Ford’s Intelligent 4WD standard. Both come with six-speed automatic transmissions.

As many as 30 stowage pockets, bins, hooks make efficient use of every interior inch. A cargo management system at the rear features a movable floor board and fold-away second-row seats to provide a flat area for moving furniture and other larger items.

The all-new Ford EcoSport starts arriving in dealerships in early 2018.
