Ford EcoSport New Engine
The all-new turbocharged petrol engine in EcoSport is already available for use in the Mahindra XUV300. The 1.2-litre turbocharged Petrol engine produces Max power of 110ps and a Max torque of 200Nm in the XUV300. It is expected to produce the same figures with the Ford EcoSport too.
Ford EcoSport comes currently with two engine options: 1) 1.5-litre petrol engine and 2) 1.5-litre diesel engine. The older 1.0-litre turbocharged EcoBoost engine was discontinued last year. Whether Ford will replace the 1.5-litre petrol engine with the 1.2-litre turbocharged engine or provide both as options is still not confirmed. Both manual and automatic transmissions are currently available in the Ford EcoSport now but the 1.2-litre engine in Mahindra XUV300 only comes with a manual transmission and no automatic option.
