2019 Ford EcoSport: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

, Senior Pricing Analyst - July 23, 2018

Model Preview

The Ford EcoSport will see no major changes for the 2019 model year. The most significant updates have to do with option availability on the upper-level SES trim.

In terms of styling, expect to see the same overall look as the current model. For 2019, the SES will get a Black Appearance Package that gets you a black painted roof and hood decal.

The SES will also get an updated grille that continues to feature painted bars but in black instead of last year's magnetic gray. Similarly, side mirror caps will be black instead of body color.

Last year's Cold Weather Package has been discontinued. SE, SES and Titanium styles will now come standard with a windshield wiper deicer. The EcoSport's rear gate-mounted spare tire carrier has also apparently been discontinued.

Under the hood, the EcoBoost S, SE & Titanium will come equipped with the same 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine in 2WD configurations, while opting for all-wheel drive gets you access to a more powerful 2.0-liter. As before, the SES will only be offered in all-wheel drive and with the 2.0-liter engine.

In terms of safety, the EcoSport will continue to lack important features like auto emergency braking. Unlike vehicles like the Fusion, the vehicle will not get the brand's new Ford Co-Pilot360 suite of driver assistance technology.

Expect a full overview closer to launch.

Pricing & Release Date

The 2019 Ford EcoBoost is expected to begin production in October 2018.

Official pricing for the EcoSport S will start at $20,990 including destination and range up to $28,605 for the range-topping all-wheel drive Titanium trim.

That's the same entry-level MSRP as the previous year, but a modest $280 price cut in the case of the Titanium. The price of the SES Black Appearance Package is listed at $395.

Key competitors include the Honda HR-V, Jeep Renegade and Toyota C-HR.
