For an improved performance, exceptional innovations, and a style that will turn some heads, climb aboard the 2018 Ford EcoSport today. This compact SUV has plenty to offer, but you will have to come down to Gillespie Ford to experience it, since words do not do it justice. Contact a member of our staff today at 847-281-5294 to schedule a test drive of the EcoSport!

It’s time that you put the fun back into driving. After all, something you do every day shouldn’t feel mundane. When you turn the Ford EcoSport on, you will bring its standard 1.0L 3-cylinder engine to life. Generating a spunky 123 horsepower and 125 lb.-ft. of torque, you will surely feel the thrills when you push down on the gas pedal. In addition to its power, this compact SUV will also let you bypass quite a few gas stations, thanks to its fuel economy of 23/29/25 MPG city/hwy/combined1. The fun doesn’t stop there! Upgrade to the available 2.0L Ti-VCT powertrain for an even better performance. This machine easily churns out 166 horsepower and 149 lb.-ft. of torque when paired to a standard 6-speed automatic transmission.

You can spend all day running errands without missing a beat thanks to the connectivity capabilities inside the 2018 Ford EcoSport. On an optional 8-inch color LCD touchscreen you will find the SYNC® 32 infotainment system with enhanced voice-recognition capability. This function allows you to easily operate your favorite devices without ever having to physically touch them. Sync your smartphone to this compact SUV via standard Bluetooth® so that you can chat with your friends over the phone hands-free. The same phone applications that you use in your home can also be operated on the go with some help from Apple CarPlay™3 and Android Auto™4.

While its performance and technology are nice luxuries to have, nothing compares to safety. Everyone aboard will be well protected with the driver-assist features equipped. See other vehicles approaching your surroundings with the available Blind Spot Information System5. When another car comes up to the side of you, a visual warning indicator will appear on the corresponding mirror to warn you not to change lanes. The standard rearview camera5 produces a live image of everything behind you to make backing out of the busy parking lot of Landmark Renaissance Cinema effortless. If you have a new teenage driver that is just starting out, equip the optional MyKey® feature to help promote good driving habits.

We have only scratched the surface of the 2018 Ford EcoSport for sale near Highland Park, IL. We at Gillespie Ford encourage you to take this compact SUV out on a test drive with a member of our staff today. Stop by during any of our business hours Monday through Saturday. We look forward to showing off this one-of-a-kind vehicle to you!

Justin the sales rep and Nate the manager were so awesome to work with! They made the process as painless as possible, walked through each step with us and made sure I walked away with a car I loved and a great price. Overall everyone at the dealership was so kind and wanted to make sure we were satisfied with the visit. I even got a call a couple of days after I got the car just to make sure everything was going well so far! Amazing customer service, highly recommend

I came into this dealership with no idea what I wanted for a car or even if I’d be able to get approved for one. But I got to leave with a beautiful 2020 Ford Fusion. I highly recommended Justin! He was amazing and so professional and he knew the right car for me to test drive and I fell in love instantly! Thank you so much for getting me my dream car!!

My wife and I walked in today to see what Gillespie has to offer for cars on a new Fusion. We were greeted by the sales person Lee, he extended his advanced customer service assistance immediately, which is very important as a form of aknowledgment every customer should receive👍. He was incredibly helpful, kind, and patient during our time at the dealership. We later met with the manager Nate, he was was fantastic, very knowledgeable and not at all pushy neither was Lee. He showed us many different options and really helped us pick out the perfect option and a great deal as well. The entire process was so easy and pressure free. In conclusion, if it weren’t for Lee and Nate today, my wife and I probably would have walked out of the dealership today without purchasing any car. Thank you guys!
