2021 Ford EcoSport SES To Get Black Appearance Package As Standard

The 2021 Ford EcoSport will gain the Black Appearance as standard equipment on the SES trim level, Ford Authority has learned.

Currently a $395 option on the 2020 EcoSport SES, the Black Appearance Package includes the following three features:

  • Black-painted roof
  • Black spoiler
  • Black Hood Decal

It’s currently unclear what impact the standardization of the package will have on the price of the 2021 Ford EcoSport, though we would expect the base price of the 2020 EcoSport SES to increase by roughly the amount that the package costs on the 2020 model.

Making the Black Appearance Package standard on the EcoSport SES make sense, since the SES trim level already features various black exterior accents in place of body-color (S, SE) or bright chrome (Titainum) accents. The SES, for instance, features black upper and lower grilles, headlamp and foglamp bezels, beltline moldings, mirror caps, roof rails and rear bumper insert. It also has wheels with black accents/pockets.

The EcoSport slots under the Ford Escape and upcoming Bronco Sport as Ford’s smallest and least expensive utility. The base trim level is the S, which is followed by SE, which in turn is followed by Titanium. The SES trim level that’s our focus today is the range-topping EcoSport model slotting above Titanium, thereby bucking the Titanium’s usual place at the top of the Ford trim level hierarchy.


The Ford EcoSport SES is powered by Ford’s naturally-aspirated 2.0L Ti-VCT engine with Auto Stop-Start technology rated at 166 horsepower and 149 pound-feet of torque.

The atmospheric four-banger is mated to a standard six-speed automatic transmission. Intelligent AWD is standard, as is a sport-tuned suspension unique to the SES.

2020 Ford EcoSport Starting Prices
S $19,995
SE $23,450
Titanium $26,265
SES $27,380

On a related note, Ford Authority has also learned that other changes to the 2021 EcoSport will include three new wheel designs, two new exterior colors, several interior updates, and a few other small changes  – such as the addition of a new SE Appearance Package, which we will outline next week.

      Read the article genius it’s about a package – a package that my EcoSport has already but now they’re making it standard.

      If you don’t care about something, no one is obligating you to read it or post a comment. Why not just skip it?

  2. Why can’t Ford just bring over the new Puma to replace this vehicle already?
