Talking about the power train, Surprisingly the new BS6 EcoSport has withdrawn 1.0 litre EcoBoost petrol from Indian version, instead it has now just given a 1.5 litre three cylinder petrol engine. This engine creating max power of 122 PS and peak torque of 149 Nm. The 1.5 litre Diesel engine however produces max power of 100PS and max torque about 215Nm. Gearbox for now is offered only in 5 speed manual, unlike its predecessor which had an option of 6 speed automatic. Withdrawing the 1.0 litre engine could disappoint car enthusiasts. So we are expecting that Ford might bring 1.0 litre EcoBoost BS6 later this year. It seems AMT will make its way later on considering the market demand.
