Titanium version here. Power will come from the brand-new a 1 liter three cylinder EcoBoost engine with 120hp and 170nm. We heard however that Ford is considering to offer a bigger engine for the China market  where 3-cylinders are often associated with crappy Xiali taxi’s and other old-fashioned stuff. The Ecosport is big enough to hold a 1.6 or a 1.8. Price of the 1.0 will start around 100.000 yuan, dropping the Ecosport straight in one of the most competetive market segments in China. With the mighty Ford-name behind it, the Ecosport might survive very well.
