The compact SUV market is booming and Ford is introducing the best competitor yet. Looking at how the 2018 Ford EcoSport compares to the 2017 Chevy Trax, it's easy to see which model has more to offer. Both models do share a number of similar features for convenience, performance and safety such as smart phone integration and driver assistance technologies. However, it’s the EcoSport that adds those little extra touches that really make driving it a dynamic experience.
One such extra touch is the EcoSport's standard 1.0L EcoBoost engine. Though the Trax offers a larger 1.4L engine, that turbocharged boost of the EcoSport provides a sportier ride. The EcoSport also offers a second engine option, a choice not available with the Trax. For even more performance, the EcoSport offers a 2.0L engine with standard Intelligent 4-wheel-drive.

Little things like having a larger display screen or featuring a swing-gate style tailgate rather than a traditional liftgate makes a big difference in how drivers feel about their vehicles. With the Ford EcoSport, drivers have better access to information than the Trax because of its larger screen and more advanced technology. While both the EcoSport and the Trax offer a vehicle app for diagnostics, locking and remote start, the FordPass app also allows drivers to chat with a representative about any issues or search their question in the app. With the FordPass app, drivers can also view fuel levels and odometer counts.
