Ford Begins Testing 2018 Figo

Ford Begins Testing 2018 FigoThe new 1.5-litre Ti-VCT (Twin Independent Variable Camshaft Timing) made its world premiere in Brazil in May this year. The EcoSport facelift becomes the first vehicle in Ford’s global lineup to use this new motor. The tech on board includes a lightweight aluminium block, integrated exhaust manifold (just like the 1.0-litre EcoBoost), Ti-VCT among others.

The SYNC 1 not only looks primitive with loads of buttons and a small screen, but also makes the dash appear cumbersome. The dashboard of the test mules were completely covered, indicating an overhaul just like the upcoming EcoSport.

Ford will also bring in a smaller 1.2-litre petrol engine, again part of the Dragon series, that will power Ford’s small cars that qualify for tax benefits. These cars will ideally be the Ford Figo, Ford Aspire and a new premium hatchback that is still in the works.

Ford has not given out any information on the matter but the new range of engines are expected to be compliant with emission norms of the future. They will be built at Ford India’s new engine manufacturing plant in Sanand, Gujarat.
