Ford EcoSport launch confirmed for April 2013 and not January 2013

Ford EcoSport is undoubtedly one of the most awaited launch of year 2013. The close sources, senior management at Ford India says that car would be launched in April 2013 and not in January 2013. The carmaker has also invited Tamil Nadu CM, Jayalalithaa to commence the production and this would take place in March 2013 which also proves that Ford is yet to commence production of the EcoSport from the dedicated assembly line for this crossover.

The EcoSport has already been launched in South America with countries like Brazil, Argentina and Colombia already playing host to this exciting new crossover. In the next couple of months, the EcoSport is expected to go on sale in countries like China, Peru and Chile.

While Ford has also been seen testing the Automatic variant, it is yet to be seen whether the carmaker brings this to India or not. Ford India will launch the EcoSport crossover with 1.0L Ecoboost Gasoline engine and 1.5L DV5 diesel engine which is currenlty doing duty in Fiesta sedan. The EcoSport is expected to get the 6 speed PowerShift automatic transmission option on petrol powered variants while the 5 speed manual gearbox is expected to be standard on all variants of this crossover.
