Crossovers are an ever-growing segment in the automotive world. They provide enough seating for the whole family and boast a better MPG when compared to their larger SUV relatives. The 2019 Ford EcoSport is no different, which is why The Lake Dealerships made this guide to educate drivers near the Bellefonte, Lewistown, and State College areas of the great in-class MPG of the Ford EcoSport.
To learn about how the 2019 Ford EcoSport achieves its competitive MPG, continue reading our guide below.
To achieve its EPA-estimated 27 city/29 highway/28 combined MPG, the 2019 EcoSport is equipped with a 1.0L EcoBoost® engine and a 6-speed SelectShift® Automatic Transmission. This configuration puts out 123 horsepower and 125 lb-ft of torque. What we like about the EcoSport is that it comes standard with Ford’s fun-to-drive, turbocharged engine without losing its fantastic fuel economy.
Even if you opt for increased horsepower and torque with the available 2.0L Ti-VCT I-4 engine, the 2019 Ford EcoSport won’t disappoint with its 23 city/29 highway/25 combined MPG. Drive confidently with the ability to skip the next few gas stations.
You’ll be happy with either of the two drivetrains Ford offers in the 2019 EcoSport. It’s accepted that FWD-equipped vehicles generally get better fuel economy than vehicles that use a 4WD drivetrain. While the Intelligent 4WD-configured EcoSport generates a lower MPG than the FWD-equipped model’s MPG, its smart component minimizes the loss thanks to automatic sensors that are used to direct the appropriate amount of torque and power to each wheel.
Additionally, Ford shed weight under the hood thanks to a partially aluminum-constructed 1.0L engine and an almost fully aluminum 2.0L engine.
What we enjoy about its exterior design are the streamlined angles that help to maximize the EcoSport MPG. A rounded front end and sloped windshield blend into the roofline seamlessly, which only add to the aerodynamic qualities consistent with the rest of the 2019 EcoSport body. Considering the EcoSport is not a full-size SUV, its relatively compact size also contributes to its increased MPG.
Machined aluminum wheels, as opposed to common steel wheels, lower this crossover’s weight considerably. To ensure the best fuel economy possible while you enjoy your striking aluminum wheels, regularly check your tire pressure—so you can continue to go where you want with the least number of stops.
At The Lake Dealerships, we hope you enjoyed learning about the MPG of the 2019 Ford EcoSport and its efficiency-oriented features. This crossover comes available with two possible engines, a number of technologies, and exterior features that contribute to the formidable in-class EcoSport MPG.
Regardless of which 2019 EcoSport trim level you choose, you’ll leave the lot content with the knowledge that your new vehicle won’t need to be refueled until well after you’ve run your daily errands and driven home. Of course, to understand the EcoSport for yourself, you should get behind the wheel.
We invite drivers near the Bellefonte, Lewistown, and State College areas to schedule a test drive in the 2019 Ford EcoSport today!
