Ford EcoSport Thunder Edition Launched, price, changes, features, images

Ford has introduced a new Thunder edition variant to the EcoSport lineup in India. This new model has been priced from Rs. 10.18 lakh to Rs. 10.68 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Meanwhile, prices of the other EcoSport variants have been reduced. This appears to be Ford India’s attempt at stealing away some ‘thunder’ from the recent launch in this segment – the Hyundai Venue.

The Ford EcoSport Thunder appears to be a replacement of the Signature edition that was offered in the pre-facelift lineup. It is available with 1.5-litre, four-cylinder petrol and diesel engine options.

Cosmetically, the EcoSport Thunder has a few minor changes to the regular model. It comes with black inserts on the headlamp assemblies, blacked out fog lamp bezels, grille and ORVM caps. The 17-inch alloy wheels too are exclusive to the Thunder edition, as is the dual tone bonnet and decals on the doors.

The new EcoSport Thunder edition variant comes with a dual tone cabin with brown accents on the front seats, instrument cluster, door panels, and central console. Features on offer include an electronic sunroof, a 9.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, navigation, and voice recognition. Sadly, this system doesn’t come with Ford’s SYNC3 smartphone connectivity suite.

Under the hood, the EcoSport Thunder comes with either a 123 PS 1.5-litre petrol and a 100 PS 1.5-litre diesel; both mated to a manual gearbox. It is worth noting that the 1.0-litre, three-cylinder EcoBoost engine isn’t available with the new Ford EcoSport Thunder Edition.
