As a family-owned business, we at Friendly Ford are all about cultivating a warm, inviting atmosphere and setting up families with a vehicle tailor-made for their needs. We think the Ford EcoSport is just the type of ride drivers in Syracuse, NY, are looking for, be that for a visit or everyday commuting, and you’ll see why from this overview.
Despite an average population of less than 150,000, the city packs tons of lively activities for a city in upstate New York. Probably most well known as a college town for the historic Syracuse University, it is unquestionably a community for the whole family. With multiple lake views, sprawling countryside, and loads of urban culture, there are always adventures to be had year-round.
Fun in the sun is abundant when you go boating, kayaking, or tubing on Skaneateles Lake. The outdoor Adventure Center at Greek Peak Mountain is appropriately named, with breathtaking views to be had on a ride up the mountain coaster and zoom down the ziplines. Scratch one more thing off your bucket list and drive your EcoSport over to Skydive Central New York.
Finish out your day exploring the shopping and entertainment at Armory Square or relaxing with a cold handcrafted beer at Empire Farm Brewing Company. It’s a fun city for any time of year, and the Ford EcoSport is the fun, anytime vehicle to help you see it all.
Ford’s urban crossover subcompact SUV provides four trim options to choose from—the standard S, SE, Titanium, and SES. The first three options are front-wheel drive with a 1.0-liter inline 3-cylinder EcoBoost® turbocharged engine providing 123 horsepower and 125 lb-ft of torque. It also boasts an EPA-estimated 27 city/29 highway MPG. All three can be upgraded to a 2.0-liter I-4 engine for 166 horsepower and 149 lb-ft of torque. It comes standard with four-wheel-drive on the SES trim. All trims have a 6-speed automatic transmission.
The upgraded engine variant even allows for a 2,000-pound max towing capacity. Expect modest acceleration and handling and overall a smooth driving experience.
Pop open the unique vertical closing rear tailgate and you’ll see that the EcoSport packs a lot of storage capacity. Expect up to 20.9 cubic feet, without adjusting the back seats. Handy hooks let you hang bags or coats, and more compartments are available on the higher trims.
The EcoSport comfortably seats five in the cabin with plenty of headroom. All your drive and interior controls and information are managed through steering wheel switches and the infotainment screen, which also allows Bluetooth® streaming of audio. The screen also automatically shifts to a full view of the rear camera in reverse.
Other safety features include blind-spot monitoring, automatic emergency braking, extra airbags, and more. Additional and upgraded features come with the higher trims.
The EcoSport is a fuel-efficient subcompact SUV for wherever you’re going in beautiful Syracuse, and we at Friendly Ford want you to get inside one today.
