Ford to Unveil EcoSport Mini-Crossover at LA Auto Show

By -

EcoSport Storm Show Car

Next week is the Los Angeles Auto Show, or for us in the automotive world, AutoMobility LA. We expected that Ford would announce one of their new SUV nameplates to the United States at this show, and now we know what it’ll be. The United States is about to experience the Ford EcoSport.

The EcoSport has been sold in other parts of the world, including South America, and is a successful little crossover. Designed to fit underneath the Escape here in the States, the EcoSport’s main competition would come from vehicles like the Honda HR-V and the Mazda CX-3. Y’all are SUV crazy, and Ford is going to tackle every segment they can.

Beyond knowing the EcoSport will be unveiled on Monday, we don’t know much else about how it’ll appear in American-spec. We also doubt they’ll have the butch-looking Raptor-eqsue version for sale at any point. But it’ll be interesting to see how it all plays out, especially when people are shunning their cars for more vehicles of this type.
