2019 Ford EcoSport Thunder Edition launched

By autoX Editorial | on June 4, 2019

This special edition model is effectively a replacement to the Signature trim. It gets some additional cosmetic features, sportier interior trim and more equipment

The sub-4 metre SUV segment is heating up. Just last week, Maruti Suzuki introduced a limited edition version of the Vitara Brezza, and now, Ford has introduced the Thunder Edition of the EcoSport. An effect of the Hyundai Venue launch? Possibly! But it sure looks like the customer will reap great benefits of this skirmish.

Ford has now introduced a Thunder Edition of the EcoSport. Now this new variant is essentially the same as the Signature trim the company had on offer earlier. The EcoSport Thunder Edition is priced at Rs 10.18 lakh for the petrol trim and Rs 10.68 lakh for the diesel. Prices ex-showroom Delhi.  

As far as the changes on this variant are concerned, you will be able to spot them on the outside and in the cabin too. It gets dark bezel for the headlamp cluster and fog lamps. The grille, front bumper, alloy wheels, roof as well as ORVMs get a black treatment too. On the inside, the cabin gets a different trim. The dashboard gets brown accents on the centre console, above the glove box, and on the door pads. The seats and the central armrest also gets a similar dual-tone black and brown treatment. In terms of features, the EcoSport Thunder Edition gets the works – from a 9.0-inch touchscreen infotainment screen, Ford’s SYNC 3 tech, navigation, voice command and more. At the heart, the Thunder Edition comes with 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engine options. The petrol is good for 121bhp while the diesel makes 99bhp. This variant doesn’t get the 1.0-litre EcoBoost motor nor an automatic transmission option.

Along with the launch of the Thunder Edition, Ford has also slashed the prices of other variants of the EcoSport. Here’s the revised price list:
