Don't do it!!!
In some way the II nomenclature reminds me of the disastrous Mustang II, a neutering of a product line.

Just brainstorming for fun of course, trying to come up with an allusion to a rugged lifestyle. I know they tend to be very brief, ideally 1-sylable.

Exo
Ero
Eco
Encamp
Excite
Engage
Outro
Intro
Trail
Vail
Rail
"Vail" means "take off one's hat or otherwise show respect or submission to someone."
"Ero" is an abbreviation (slang) for "erotic".
"Outro" means "the concluding section of a piece of music or a radio or television program."
"Encamp" means "settle in or establish a camp."
"Intro" is short for "introduction"
I'd probably eliminate these five right away.
If it was listed in no order, which one is your favorite?

Next-generation Ford EcoSport small crossover spotted testing (Test Mule)

Other possibilities, the small unnamed SUV could be a concept that might preview the next "EcoSport" but might have a concept-only name like the "Vertrek" (which became the current gen Kuga/Escape), that or Ford just doesn't want to reveal that it's the next EcoSport so that they can still sell the current model.

Ford Vertrek Concept


Vertrek actually sounds interesting but is a non-"E" name.
If it is indeed the EcoSport replacement, there's probably a high chance it will retain its name.
