2018 US EcoSport Video

Not a very substantive video, but the first one I've seen on the US EcoSport. Only take away is that the 1.0L is slow and loud.

Re: 2018 US EcoSport Video

This should be a significant boost in sales for Ford.

I read that all trims are eligible for a $2,750 incentive, this basically brings the US-market EcoSport's price down to how it's positioned in other markets (higher than an equivalent trim Fiesta but a bit cheaper than an equivalent trim Focus).

This guy works for that Ford dealership, yes? Maybe someone should have told him it's not an Echosport.

Except EcoSport is pronounced "Echo"Sport.

Yes.

And EcoBoost is "eeeko"Boost.

No. It doesn't make any sense.

What in the **** exactly does echosport mean? EcoSport makes sense given it's a product focused on economy. It's tiny so I doubt you'll hear any echos while sitting inside it.

Every week I understand Ford less and less. If this **** keeps up the only products I'll understand with be Mustang and F-Series.

You mean the only two vehicles Ford really cares about?

What debate? There is only one proper pronunciation: Ess Aych Ohh, at least for those of us who around to remember the original and best version. I never called my Contour SVT a Contour SVIT. Silliness.
