Overall Rating


"The EcoSport has a fun attitude and cool features, but advanced driver-assist systems and stellar fuel economy are not among them." - AUTOTRADER

The 2022 Ford EcoSport is a carry-over model of the 2021 model year. However, its standard FWD and 1.0L EcoBoost engine have been ditched for the upcoming variant. And the 166 hp 2.0L I-4 in pairing with the 4WD layout remains the single configuration that offers nearly 25 MPG combined fuel economy while towing 2,000 lbs. The trim lineup starts with the S trim at $21,985 and can be as expensive as $28,240 for the Titanium trim. 

Moreover, the destination fee of the 2022 EcoSport charges to be $1,245. Regarding its maintenance cost, the value does not exceed $4,800 after 5 years while the fuel expense is restricted at $8,000. In addition to that, its resale value depreciates by some $8,000 after the first year and decreases up to $15,000 as per 5-year ownership. In totality, the real cost to own a Ford EcoSport comes to around $40,000 within the same time period.

2022 Ford EcoSport Buying Advice

The Titanium trim at $26,895 is the best trim in the lineup. Be it ActiveX perforated heated seats or the Bang & Olufsen Sound System, the Titanium gets them as a standard along with exclusive wheels designs. Also, the standard intelligent 4WD with AdvanceTrac and Roll Stability assists it in easy maneuvering. On the whole, this trim is self-sufficient and does not need any further expense on additional packages.

8.0/10

"The EcoSport, while offering the tall seating position many buyers are looking for, fails to provide much more than that." - Car And Driver

The 2022 Ford EcoSport has a 4 trim production line that begins with S at an MSRP of $21,985. This configuration gets SYNC with a 4.2-inch Display and 6-Speaker Audio Unit as standards.

But, the SE trim at $25,455 upgrades these features to SYNC 3 and Heated front seats respectively in pairing with an added Electronic Automatic Temperature Control. 

The Titanium trim further enhances the interior engagement with the 10-Speaker Bang & Olufsen Sound System and ActiveX with Perforation, Heated Front Bucket Seats. It also gets exclusive 17-Inch Premium Dark Stainless-Painted Machined Aluminum Wheels over the standard 16-inch wheels.

2022 Ford EcoSport Engine and Performance

7.0/10

"The Ford EcoSport is a pretty fun little SUV to drive." - Kelley Blue Book

The 2022 Ford EcoSport has a 2.0L I-4 engine that produces 166 hp of power and 149 lb-ft of torque. This powertrain is equipped with auto start-stop technology and comes in coupling with a 6-speed automatic transmission for smooth power transition. Also, the intelligent 4WD has been switched to be the standard layout that ensures all-weather traction at the wheels.   

The Ford EcoSport has been given the Torque Vectoring Control that balances the engine output at axles depending on the driving terrain. Meanwhile, the suspension is a little firm that allows it to have easy handling around the corners but that takes a toll on the ride undulations. However, the exclusive sport-tuned suspension in SES trim makes it a better off-roader than the rest of the lineup.

The 2022 EcoSport ticks 9.8 seconds for the 0-60 MPH acceleration while a quarter-mile takes 17.5 seconds with a top speed of 117 MPH. In order to curb its performance, it receives 11.8-inch vented disc brake rotors in the front and 10.7-inch disc brake rotors in the rear. The Emergency Brake Assist Technology and ABS also work in sync with that. As a result, it has a braking distance of 182 ft while 70-0 MPH deceleration.

The CX-3 remains 1.2 seconds quicker than the EcoSport in the quarter-mile drag as well at just $600 extra investment. The Honda HR-V, on the other hand, is 0.4 seconds slower than the Ford because of its 25 hp power deficit against the latter.

2022 Ford EcoSport Interior

8.0/10

"Though this Ford has easy maneuverability in tight spaces and abundant cargo room, its negatives far outweigh its positives." - cars.usnews

Step inside the interior of the 2022 Ford EcoSport and a practical spacious cabin serves you a melange of cloth and leatherette finishes. Right from the Medium Light Stone Cloth-Trimmed seats in the S trim to Ebony Back ActiveX Perforated seats in the Titanium, it undergoes massive changes as we move up the trim scale. However, the hard plastic finesse of the inserts remains constant across the lineup.

Considering the comfort of the 2022 EcoSport cabin, the heated seats begin from SE trim onwards. But the 6-way driver's seat power adjustability and heated steering wheel are integrated for the Titanium and SES trims only. Also, it does have a flexible cargo space that can be varied from 20.9 cu-ft to 50 cu-ft. Alongside that, comes a Cargo Space Management as well that costs an additional $110 that can be availed of.
