The EcoSport had a successful run as Ford's smallest crossover SUV. It's small, stylish, and its size doesn't sacrifice any of its capabilities. It's the perfect trade-off for people who want an SUV, but don't want to deal with low mileage that many SUVs have. The EcoSport was originally a Brazilian exclusive when it first released in 2003. It first saw international release in 2018. Its original design was very similar to the Fusion MPV, but it had a major facelift in 2007. Its current design was created in 2017. The 2022 improves in trailer towing capability and engine power over the 2021 model.
