The Car Connection News Feed - Wed, 12/12/2018 - 12:24
The 2019 Ford EcoSport is the smallest of six crossover SUVs sold with the blue oval badge. Distinct from the compact Escape, the EcoSport doesn’t offer very good value compared to that larger, slightly more expensive vehicle.

The Car Connection News Feed - Wed, 12/12/2018 - 12:24
