Go The Extra Mile With A Ford By Your Side

For almost a century, Ford Motor Company has been guided by a vision to ‘open the highways’ to all mankind. This vision entailed making affordable cars to ensure a larger consumer base has access to a new world of opportunities personal mobility can open for them.

That’s why at Ford, we continue to make cars that go beyond fulfilling your aspirations of daily commute. We consider cars as your partners in every discovery and every expedition. Ford cars take you that extra mile, no matter where you want to go, irrespective of the terrain.

We give you the power of choice to meet your smallest of needs. That’s why when some popular automakers discontinued their diesel motors post new emission norms, we stayed invested, knowing fully well that some of you still want and value fuel-efficient, fun to drive diesel cars. With a Ford by your side, no expedition is impossible.

So, on November 1, as the world celebrates Extra Mile Day to recognize the capacity in people to create positive change by going the extra mile, we tell you how your Ford cars enable you to #Gofurther and conquer the world.

Ford Freestyle

Conquer Sharp Turns & Steep Climbs

Whether you are negotiating hairpins bends in perilous mountains or making it through the narrow, uneven roads in the Ghats, your drive will be safe and smooth with Ford Freestyle. Even far-flung and high altitude places in the remotest parts of Himalayas are easy to conquer with this Ford’s Hill Launch Assist, a feature that prevents the car from rolling down steep climbs. Freestyle is the only car in its segment to offer this feature with a manual transmission.

Ford Freestyle, India’s first compact utility vehicle, with its SUV-like design stance offers class-leading capabilities to make it your perfect travel companion. Its BSVI compliant, 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol engine is a performance leader, offering 96PS peak power 119 Nm of peak torque. Lack of torque and power can be a big hurdle to explorations, especially when you are driving on challenging hill terrain. Freestyle’s powerful engine gives drivers optimal torque across the rev range to ensure you can power through challenging terrain, without breaking a sweat.

The segment leading performance doesn’t mean you would compromise on fuel efficiency. The CUV offers outstanding 18.5 Km/liter which means you will cover more than 750-KM in every tank full of fuel.

However, if you need even more from your Ford Freestyle, you can go with the proven and best in segment 1.5L diesel engine, generating peak power of 100PS and 215 Nm of torque. The diesel engine remarkably efficient, returning 23.8 Km/L fuel efficiency, giving you a range 952 km in a tank full of fuel.

Ford EcoSport

All-Season & All-Terrain Companion

From exploring the vastness of Rajasthan where there are miles of uninhabited land to reaching the snow-covered Tsongmo Lake, located at an elevation of 3,753 meters, your Ford EcoSport can do it all. It can drive through hale, dust storms, desert storms and come out unscathed.

Ford EcoSport started the compact SUV segment, which a lot of other automakers are making a beeline to enter. While all other compact SUVs just stop at offering a few frills (read rear a/c vents, wireless charging & et all), Ford EcoSport goes the extra mile to offer things beyond creature comfort too. Several auto makers attest to the fact that no other compact SUV comes even close to EcoSport’s driving capabilities. You can watch one such testimony here, featuring well-known auto journalist Faisal Khan, who is also an EcoSport owner:

Whether you are driving through monsoon-ravaged city streets, the salt marshes of Rann of Kutch or the dirt tracks of Nubra Valley, Ford EcoSport will help you make it through with its powerful engines.

You can choose the 1.5 litre three-cylinder petrol engine that puts out an astonishing 122 PS or power and 14.9 Km/L fuel efficiency. This engine is available with a five-speed manual gearbox, but you can also opt for a six-speed automatic transmission. So, when you are driving long distance or on a highway, you can switch to Sport Mode and use the paddle shifts, just like a Formula 1 driver.

Offering greater power of choice, EcoSport is also sold with the 1.5-litre four-cylinder diesel engine that generates 100 PS of peak power and 215Nm torque, while returning an outstanding 21.7 Km/L fuel efficiency. That roughly means you’ll be able to cover a Mumbai to Delhi run on a single tank of fuel. Phew!
