New EcoSport is in big demand already
Faithful Foray customers, always keen to get behind the wheel of the latest models from the Blue Oval, have been racing to order New EcoSport, the starter model in Ford’s excellent range of SUVs.
There’s a new, super-clean 1.5 litre diesel in the range and now the car also comes with Intelligent All Wheel Drive, Ford’s brilliant system that decides whether your car can remain in front wheel drive for ultimate economy, which suits in most conditions, or if engaging drive to the rear wheels to give full 4x4 will be needed for trickier conditions.
It means the EcoSport has become a grown-up SUV despite its compact dimensions, perfect for the car that needs to get you places while at the same time not needing big spaces.
New to the range as well is the ST-Line, inspired by the many famous performance Fords that have given the range such a reputation for great driver appeal over several decades. In fact, the RS range’s half century is just being celebrated with a special Heritage RS Focus limited edition of 50 cars.
But back to EcoSport; Ford has sold 150,000 of them in Europe since its launch in 2014 with a 40 per cent rise in sales last year alone. It augurs well for the fortunes of the new car, as we’ve been finding here at Foray with so many customers ordering even before the arrival of the demonstration cars that are now hitting the road.
If you haven’t discovered the delights of EcoSport now’s the time to come to your Foray dealership and see the results of Ford’s €200 million investment in a new European production facility. You won’t be disappointed!
