2021 Ford EcoSport Review

2021 Ford EcoSport

Inject some fun into your drives through Pensacola, Crestview, and Fort Walton Beach, Florida with the 2021 Ford EcoSport. This sporty roadster will accompany you on whatever road trip appears next on your bucket list. With a range of exciting tech and two different engines, you can try it out at World Ford Pensacola.

EcoSport Space and Options

In the EcoSport cabin, your seats can be furnished in cloth fabric or upgraded to the ActiveX™ material, which resists stains and withstands damage. Bathe your cabin with the optional ambient lighting, offered in seven flattering colors.

The SUV seats five, and in the front, the driver can opt for an available 6-way power driver’s seat while your front seat companion perches in the 4-way manual front passenger seat.

Here’s more information about the cabin dimensions.

Dimensions Front Seat Rear Seat
Headroom 39.6 inches 37.5 inches
Hip Room 51.6 inches 50.9 inches
Legroom 42.9 inches 36.7 inches
Shoulder Room 53.3 inches 51.3 inches


Plenty of available amenities span the cabin, too, like a power moonroof and leather-wrapped steering wheel with a matching shift knob. To keep cool on a humid Panhandle day, the electronic automatic temperature control maintains a comfortable climate inside.

Before you go to the beach or leave the store, pack up your items into the trunk. Open the rear swing gate, which works like another car door, and provides you with 20.9 cubic feet of cargo space. If you fold down the second row, it offers a maximum of 50 cubic feet.

Technology to Keep You Connected

2021 Ford EcoSport InteriorWhile you’re on the go, make use of all the standard and available technology, including Apple CarPlay™ or Android Auto™. By integrating your smartphone with your EcoSport, you won’t miss calls and can use your apps on the available SYNC® 3 eight-inch touchscreen or download a playlist or two. Listen to your tunes on the 10-speaker B&O™ Sound System by Bang & Olufsen upgrade.

Finding the best route can be found through the available voice-activated navigation system or through the Ford and Waze, another navigation option. If you fill up the cabin with friends, more than one rider can connect their device if you add 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot. It enables 10 devices to be hooked up.

All Sides Safety

Through the optional Ford Co-Pilot360™ Technology, use the following features to protect you as you meander on your merry way. Buckled in, you’ll discover how the Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert will keep a lookout on all sides. The Reverse-Sensing System alerts you to obstacles as you back up, and the Rear View Camera lets you see what may be blocking your path.

Dueling Engine Performance

With two engines, choose what works best with your driving style. The standard 1.0L EcoBoost® turbocharged engine helps you to achieve an EPA-estimated 27 city/29 highway MPG. Attach a trailer, and you can pull up to 1,400 pounds. The available 2.0L Ti-VCT engine will tow a maximum of 2,000 pounds when properly equipped.

Front-wheel drive comes standard, but you can upgrade to the Intelligent 4WD. Each engine and trim use the 6-speed SelectShift® automatic transmission for finding the right gear at the right time.
