MELBOURNE– Loaded with equipment to handle the urban jungle in style, the introduction of the EcoSport Shadow Special Vehicle Pack (SVP), means Ford’s small SUV is dressed for the occasion, too.

The announcement of the EcoSport Shadow SVP is another way Ford’s commitment to Australia continues to grow beyond billions in local R&D as it expands and upgrades its best ever line up.

The EcoSport Shadow SVP is based on the regular EcoSport Titanium automatic transmission model with a number of key exterior enhancements. The EcoSport Shadow SVP will be available in two exterior body colours – Diamond White and Panther Black.

EcoSport Shadow – in the spotlight:
‘The EcoSport Shadow represents an exciting opportunity for customers looking for something extra special in the appearance of their EcoSport vehicle,’ said Graeme Whickman, CEO and President, Ford of Australia.

‘We expect the addition of the EcoSport Shadow SVP will attract new customers by giving it a visual edge over its competitors,’ added Whickman.

With an elevated ride height and a width of just 1765mm, parking and fitting down city streets in the EcoSport is a breeze. Pot holes and bumps are handled with ease thanks to 200mm of ground clearance while the EcoSport has water wading capability up to 550mm^. And if customers are parked in tightly on a hill, the EcoSport’s Hill Launch Assist^^ will be there.

Customers interested in the EcoSport Shadow SVP would be well advised to get in early as only 100 vehicles (50 Diamond White and 50 Panther Black) will be built in 2016.

The EcoSport Shadow SVP will begin arriving in showrooms in July 2016.
