New Ford EcoSport FAQ

Does the Ford EcoSport offer all-wheel drive?

Yes, although the Ford EcoSport has front-wheel drive as a standard on most trims, it is also available with Intelligent All-Wheel Drive, which continuously monitors the roads around Jerome ID and then diverts torque to the wheel with the best grip to maximize your handling and traction.

Does the Ford EcoSport offer Apple CarPlay or Android Auto?

Yes, Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ are part of the SYNC® 3 infotainment system, which is standard on the Ford EcoSport for the SE and higher trims. These technologies let you integrate your compatible smartphone so that you can make calls, play your music files, and access your text messages.

How many people can fit inside the Ford EcoSport?

The new Ford EcoSport comfortably accommodates up to five passengers: two in the front buckets seats and three in the rear bench seat. Cargo space in the trunk measures up to 20.9 cubic feet. However, if you fold down the 60/40-split rear seatbacks, cargo room expands to 50 cubic feet.

Does the Ford EcoSport have a backup camera?

As part of Ford Co-Pilot360™ technology, the Ford EcoSport has a Rear View Camera on all trims. It comes on when you go into reverse to project views of what is behind you on the dashboard display.


Does the Ford EcoSport offer remote start?

Yes, the Ford EcoSport offers remote start through FordPass Connect™, which has an app that Burley ID drivers can download to their mobile device. Wherever you can operate your mobile device, you can then lock or unlock the doors, locate the vehicle, determine fuel levels, or start and stop the engine. Ask for a demonstration at Middlekauff Ford in Twin Falls ID.

Is the Ford EcoSport good at driving in the snow?

The Ford EcoSport has front-wheel drive as a standard feature. But if you opt for the available Intelligent Four-Wheel Drive, then the vehicle can easily tackle snowy roads. This feature reads the road in milliseconds, so it can send traction where needed. If it detects slippage in the front wheels, for example, it can divert up to 100 percent of the torque to the rear axle to maintain road grip.

Does the Ford EcoSport require special fuel?

No, the Ford EcoSport runs on 87 octane gasoline. However, its owner's manual recommends premium fuel with an octane rating of 91 or higher for the best performance.
