The Ford Authority Take

The EcoSport has been the target of some criticism in recent years, potentially leading to its less-than-noteworthy sales placement during Q4 2021. Ford Authority previously reported that the EcoSport landed on Consumer Reports‘ 10 Least Satisfying Cars Survey, which is based on the latest data from the consumer organization’s members, earning an overall score of just 45 due to its below-average predicted reliability and well below-average owner satisfaction score.

Ford has announced that it will discontinue the model in mid-2022, ceasing its manufacturing operations in India, including the Ford Chennai Assembly Plant where the EcoSport is built. However, FoMoCo still introduced a few changes to the 2022 Ford EcoSport in spite of its impending discontinuation. Headline-worthy changes include Ford dropping the 1.0L EcoBoost I-3 engine from the lineup, making the atmospheric 2.0L I-4 the crossover’s sole engine option. Additionally, all-wheel drive will become standard. The changes will result in an increase in price across all trims.

It’s also worth noting that, even though the Ford EcoSport will no longer be sold in India and the U.S., FoMoCo has said that it will continue to produce the crossover at the Ford Craiova Assembly Plant in Romania for the European market. The EcoSport will likely be replaced entirely with the Ford Puma.
