Ford has teased the new Ford EcoSport ‘SE’ that is gearing up to launch in the Indian market soon. In its SE trim, the new Ford EcoSport will come with a new tailgate design that does not offer a tailgate-mounted spare wheel but adds new features such as a silver skid plate. The number plate holder is also mounted higher on the tailgate instead of the lower bumper. Speculations are that the new Ford EcoSport in the SE trim will come with a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System and a Tyre Puncture Repair kit. Other than this the compact SUV is not likely to receive any other changes and will be similar to the ‘S’ trim.
The Ford EcoSport SE is likely to come with the same powertrain that is available on the EcoSport S which is a BS6 emission-compliant 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol motor that produces 122 PS of power and 149 Nm of torque. The Ecosport also comes with a BS6 compliant 1.5-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine that produces 100 PS of power and 215 Nm of torque. The Ford EcoSport S is available with only a 5-speed manual transmission though a 6-speed automatic gearbox is on offer in the Petrol Titanium+ variant.
