2021 Ford EcoSport Storm Launches In Mexico With New, Sporty Features: Video

Last spring, the Ford Ranger Storm debuted in South America following strong public reception when Ford revealed a concept of the production pickup way back in 2018. The Ranger Storm is geared toward the extreme sports and adventure segment, enticing buyers with a host of both styling and functional upgrades. Now, the 2021 Ford EcoSport Storm has been revealed in Mexico with many of those same features.

The new Ford EcoSport Storm is by all accounts quite similar to the Ranger Storm, as it too wears exclusive graphics and a series of aesthetic upgrades that aim to give it a sportier appearance along with enhanced functionality. They include roof-mounted crossbars, which can be used to carry everything from a bike rack to cargo boxes. On the inside, the EcoSport Storm also sports a cargo net in the trunk to hold precious gear in place there as well.

In addition to the exclusive Storm graphics, the special edition Ford EcoSport also wears 17-inch aluminum wheels, a black grille, and various other black trim pieces to set it apart from the rest of the lineup.

As for the powertrain, the Ford EcoSport Storm offers buyers two choices. First up is Ford’s 1.5L three-cylinder engine that produces 121 horsepower and 111 pound-feet of torque, which is mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. Those that want more power can opt for FoMoCo’s 2.0L four-cylinder, which offers 164 horsepower and 146 pound-feet of torque backed up by a 6-speed automatic transmission.

The Ford EcoSport Storm also comes equipped with an integrated FordPass Connect modem with Wi-Fi Hotspot, which allows owners to connect up to 10 mobile devices, as well as SYNC 3 with an 8-inch screen. Safety-wise, the EcoSport Storm comes standard with features including Emergency Braking Assist, Automatic Emergency Lighting System Anti-Lock (ABS), and Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD).

The Ford EcoSport Storm is on sale in Mexico now, with a starting MSRP of $381,200 ($19,192 USD).

    Tiny, 3 cylinder, ecoboom with a stick, or the problematic (history of problems) 2.0 with an automatic (NO manual available) is typical of ford’s new offerings. The BS (bronco sport, made in mexico) comes to mind.

    Go on the internet and put in any manufacturer all have engine problems with there turbo engine or none turbo engines and with out proper matiance or being driven hard from cold or not letting turbos cooling down problely they don’t last long either.
    There are plenty of people happy with their eco boost engines.
    Eco boost 2.0 litre are no worse then any other engine with proper matiance.
    Yes ealier some eco boost had problems but some that was down to infere supplied parts from outside manufacturers.

      “””Yes ealier some eco boost had problems but some that was down to infere supplied parts from outside manufacturers.”””
      You are talking about ONE engine, I’m discussing the entire line of 2.0 eco boost engines.
      “””…down to infere supplied parts from outside manufacturers.”
      Are you making an inference regarding part suppliers?
      The Fact is: the 2.0 is a poor power plant, riddled with problems, they are not known as long life mills, but rather, little junk engines for disposable cars. Yes, someone may still have a Yugo, and are happy with it, I’m talking about the fleet. Funny, you start out with “..put in any manufacturer all have engine problems…” , I am not discussing engine problem from some manufacturer, but a specific engine from Ford, the 2.0. I guess you are saying, “every manufacturer has had a problem engine, so be happy with a problem engine from ford, in fact buy one??” Very Strange logic to be sure. What exactly do you mean by, “”””..or not letting turbos COOLING down problely they don’t last long either.”””””” I’m guessing you have written your post in Bulgarian, and the automatic translation program your using is not functioning as it should be.
