The SMX Convention Center in SM Aura was the venue of the launch of a highly anticipated crossover—the Ford EcoSport. Even if we did get our hands on it before the big day (check out our Launch Pad stories), these events are still a pretty big deal. We love attending.
“The Ford EcoSport is an SUV in a league of its own - combining quality design, rugged capability, best-in-class features, superior fuel economy, and great value for money, all into a single and fun vehicle,” shares Bert Lessard, managing director, Ford Philippines.
The EcoSport is available in all Ford dealerships already, And we must say, it looks really good. Big news is that it now has the turbocharged 1.0L EcoBoost engine with direct fuel injection and variable camshaft timing under the hood. Ford says that the EcoBoost is Ford’s most technologically-advanced engine ever, producing more power while consuming less fuel. It also now comes with the auto start/stop technology when idling at traffic light.
