Like all units of the second-generation Ford EcoSport, the 2021 EcoSport continues to ride on the Ford global B car platform shared with the following vehicles:
- Ford B-Max
- Ford Fiesta MK VI
- Mazda 2
The 2021 Ford EcoSport should begin arriving at dealers during the third quarter of the 2020 calendar year, though that timeline might get a bit distorted due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The 2021 EcoSport starting price is expected to be around $20,000.
We expect the second-generation Ford EcoSport to continue being offered until the 2022 model year, at which point it should be replaced by an all-model for 2023.
