New Ford EcoSport for Sale Near Port St. Lucie

It's Been 10 Years of the Ford EcoSport

It's the 10th anniversary of the Ford EcoSport, and Ford's celebrating with an updated appearance package with cool copper accents and a power driver's seat. This little compact crossover is perfect for jetting on down to West Palm Beach for a day in the sun or simply cruising along, taking in the Atlantic coast. And you'll find it at Gilbert Ford, proudly serving the Port St. Lucie area.

Power and Performance

The 2021 Ford EcoSport offers two engine options: the standard 123-hp turbocharged three-cylinder or the 166-hp four-cylinder. Both come with six-speed SelectShift automatic transmissions to make it easy for prowling the Miami-Fort Lauderdale area. Four-wheel drive and all-wheel drive are available with advanced trim packages. And despite its size, the EcoSport can tow between 1400-2000 lbs. (depending on the engine), making it useful for extended family trips, work around the house, and even on the jobsite. The three-cylinder is rated up to 29 on the highway; the four-cylinder does slightly better at 30.

Cargo and Comfort

The EcoSport interior favors function over frills (though leather is available for upholstery and wheel), giving you plenty of space for passengers in front and cargo in the rear. Don't let the small size fool you. Taller drivers will appreciate nearly 40 inches of headroom. And in addition to 21 cubic feet of cargo space in the rear, the EcoSport features a sealable vent in the glovebox that connects with the air conditioner to create a climate-controlled compartment. The EcoSport offers two levels of infotainment, featuring an 8.0-inch touchscreen that includes Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, so you have the perfect aural accompaniment for a weekend getaway to Okeechobee for some fishing or camping.

Safety

The 2021 EcoSport received a four-out-of-five rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and comes standard with automatic headlamps and Hill Start Assist. Advanced models feature such safety tools as:

  • Reverse Sensing System
  • Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) with Cross-Traffic Alert
  • Front Rain-Sensing Wipers

The 2021 Ford EcoSport is the perfect compact crossover, combining sleek styling with a hardy selection of engines, both with plenty of towing power.
