Ford EcoSport to be Discontinued for 2023  

Ford has announced that it is canceling the EcoSport. The last vehicles will be sold by the end of this year. The small SUV was never a big seller, and Ford has been losing money on it for some time. As a result, the company is focusing on other, more popular vehicles with consumers. The EcoSport was first introduced in 2003, and it was marketed as a small SUV that was fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly. The company plans to introduce a new version of the Ranger pickup truck next year. It is also working on a new SUV positioned above the EcoSport.

A Closer Look at the Ford EcoSport

Ford has announced that it will discontinue sales of its smallest SUV, the EcoSport, next year. The EcoSport has been selling slowly for several years. Ford has decided it is not worth the investment to keep it around.

The EcoSport has been a popular model in other markets but has yet to gain a foothold in the U.S. As a result, Ford has focused on models that have proven more popular with American buyers. They include the Escape and the Explorer. The EcoSport will disappear faster than most discontinued models, as Ford wants to clear its inventory before it ceases production.

Ford has announced that it will be ending sales of the EcoSport in the U.S. by mid-2022. Ford made this decision after several market studies. Automakers usually give a year's notice before ending sales, but Ford wants the last EcoSports to arrive to dealers sooner.

The EcoSport comes with a 1.0-liter 3-cylinder engine, but an optional 2.0-liter 4-cylinder model exists. The 1.0-liter engine is available with a six-speed manual or a 10-speed automatic transmission. In contrast, the 2.0-liter engine is available with a six-speed automatic transmission. Both engines are turbocharged and have direct injection.

Ford's EcoSport models sold in the U.S. are built in India. The company has assembled the vehicles at a plant in Chennai, in the southern part of the country, since 2013. Ford began exporting EcoSport models to the U.S. in late 2017. The company has said that it plans to continue producing the vehicles in Romania for the European market but will stop shipping to the U.S.
