Till the date, Ford India Private Limited hasn't revealed any technical specifications rather than some relevant features which are extremely exceptional comparing its competitors; Renault Duster, upcoming Mahindra mini SUV Quanto, and veiled Maruti and Hyundai SUVs.

However, rumours predict that the EcoSport is to be equipped with a 1.6-litre petrol engine and a 1.4-litre diesel engine. It is expected to be powered by maximum power of 120 PS and peak torque of 170 NM. Since it comes under sub 4-meter length, it would be expelled from the excise duty.
