2013 Ford Ecosport



This looks pretty much exactly like the "concept" Ford showed us back in early January.
(Concept is the bottom picture)

Based on the Fiesta, it is not yet approved for the US.
Mostly developed in south America for that market as well as India.
But they also mention it was "engineered for sale globally".
Which means we could be getting it after all.

The concept was powered by the new 1.0 Liter EcoBoost engine, now available in the European Fiesta.
A version of that new 3 cylinder is supposed to be introduced in the US in the 2013 Fiesta.

Wouldn't be a bad idea as a competitor to the Juke and Encore.

Don't hold your breath hoping to see this for sale in the United States.

This reminds me of the Buick Encore small suv thingy.

Makes sense to develop every new platform to be sale-able in all world markets. Such a pity too that no-one ever had the foresight to mandate a particular steering wheel side globally 80 years ago.

NOTHING makes the Juke look great. The Juke makes cow crap look great.

So this is certainly better than the Juke (Joke?). But that's the ONLY thing it's better than.
