The Ford Authority Take

The EcoSport’s May sales performance is quite promising, and is likely caused by a combination of the following factors:

  • Initial launch inertia associated with a new model
  • Improved retail-level availability (resulting in the improved retail sales)
  • Healthy fleet sales
  • A growing crossover utility vehicle market

However, we have concerns about the model’s long-term sales performance in the U.S. market. Though the EcoSport is a solid vehicle, it is not the most competitive in its segment, which is becoming ever more competitive with new entrants from Hyundai (Kona), Nissan (Kicks), Jeep (Compass) and potentially Kia (Stonic) entering the fray with segment stalwarts such as the Chevy Trax, Buick Encore, Honda HR-V, Toyota C-HR and Jeep Renegade. As such, we imagine that Ford will need to replace the current, first-gen EcoSport with an all-new model sooner rather that later, in order to be more competitive in this space.

    They whine about sedan sales, with virtually no support for the Fusion, and brag about the miniscule sales of these fake SUV/CUVs with amazing advertising. Let me throw up. Think they’re going to force them down our throats. There is still GMB-bye Ford.

      Yup, it’s a sad reality, unfortunately. Hopefully, this changes.
