The Ford Authority Take

The modest increase in Ford EcoSport sales volume during Q3 2022 is likely as good as it will get for the crossover, which has been discontinued in North America in mid-2022 as a result of FoMoCo’s decision to cease manufacturing operations in India, including the Ford Chennai Assembly Plant where the EcoSport is built.

The final Ford EcoSport rolled off the assembly line in July, as Ford Authority previously reported, marking the end of operations at the plant after 25 years of production. Though the Ford EcoSport will no longer be sold in India and exported to North America, FoMoCo will continue to produce the crossover at the Ford Craiova Assembly Plant in Romania for the European market.

For its final model year, the 2022 Ford EcoSport, saw some changes and updates, including dropping the 1.0L EcoBoost I3 engine from the lineup, making the atmospheric 2.0L I4 engine the crossover’s sole option. Additionally, all-wheel drive has become standard across the board. Notably, these changes have resulted in price increases across all trims.

    Amazing Ford continues to sell this ten year old design, that was panned when first introduced, when the Koreans manage to market a new compact SUV every couple of years.
