While the compact crossover's sharp looks will make you turn heads in North Dakota – you'll be riding smoothly in the EcoSport, whether on Bismarck city streets or off-road drives.
The EcoSport comes standard with a turbocharged 1.0 liter three-cylinder engine and front wheel drive, while a 2.0 liter four-cylinder four-wheel-drive option is also available – both are six-speed automatic.
There's just enough power behind this compact hatchback, at 123 horsepower and 125 pound-foot of torque with the standard engine, or 166 horsepower with 149 pound-foot of torque paired with the 2.0 liter.
You'll certainly be buzzing around town with efficiency from this fine-tuned engine. Especially for city drivers, the petite EcoSport is an ideal choice, with the natural ability to navigate tight parking and narrow streets.
It's also nimble when hitting the highway; Ford crafted the EcoSports engine so the turbo comes on early and sustains its torque production without having to go wide open. It'll relax when you're cruising for a smooth drive, and kick back into work when the vehicle meets resistance – such as a North Dakota crosswind.
With our mix of city driving and long, open highways, all North Dakota customers look for good fuel economy. The EcoSport steps up, and delivers an estimated 27 city / 29 highway mpg.
Also, unlike most vehicles in its class, the EcoSport can handle the task of towing, with a tow rating of up to 2,000 pounds. It's not often you can find a small crossover that can actually get some work done.
If you're looking for a small vehicle with good utility and some decent power behind it, you'll want to stop in for a test drive soon. Check out our great selection of new EcoSports here in Bismarck, and let us know how we can help.
