With the standard 123-hp turbocharged three-cylinder or the optional 166-hp four-cylinder, the EcoSport can tow up to 2,000 pounds when properly equipped. The Ford EcoSport has good maneuverability in tight spaces and it's dependable. In fact, the 2021 Ford EcoSport has a J.D. Power predicted reliability score of 91-100 which is considered the best.

Expert reviewers recommend the upgraded SYNC® 3 infotainment system, which comes in every trim except the base. At the higher trim level, this system has a larger touchscreen and includes Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. To make the system more intuitive and easy to use, there are convenient physical knobs on the control panel that make it simple to adjust climate and audio settings.

Standard infotainment features include a 4.2-inch display, a six-speaker stereo, a Wi-Fi hot spot, and two USB ports. Available infotainment features are an 8-inch touch screen, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, satellite radio, a seven-speaker audio system, a 10-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system, HD Radio, and navigation.

EcoSport Trim Options

Industry experts believe the EcoSport offers the best value in the SE trim, providing you with significantly more features than the base S trim. For example, the SE provides heated front seats and a power-adjustable driver’s seat and automatic climate control. The SE trim also gives you Ford’s talented Sync 3 infotainment system with an 8.0-inch touchscreen along with a power moonroof.


The EcoSport has one of the largest cargo capacities in its class. This small crossover has 20.9 cubic feet of cargo space behind the back row and 50 cubic feet when the 60/40-split-folding rear seats are folded, so you'll have room for your cargo on your next road trip to places like Centre AL.


The EcoSport makes up for its more compact size with an impressive array of sophisticated safety technology. One example is the standard rearview camera that gives you a clear view of any pedestrians, vehicles or objects that might be behind you as you back up.

An available advanced safety feature automatically monitors your blind spot and alerts you if another vehicle is getting too close. Another great EcoSport safety option is an alert that activates when a person or a vehicle is crossing right behind you.
