Raptor-Inspired Ford EcoSport Storm is a Clever Girl
Despite the fact that it isn’t one of the major auto shows on the books in the fall, Ford brought its A-game to the Sao Paulo Motor Show by unveiling a trio of EcoSport concepts, punctuated by a bright blue badboy known as the EcoSport Storm.
We’ll refrain from making the obvious pun and saying that the Ford EcoSport Storm took the show by storm. That’s just lazy. We will say, however, that the Ford EcoSport Storm whipped up quite a commotion, blew into Sao Paulo on a strong wind, made it rain, and called down the thunder. Because, ya know, storm.
The EcoSport Storm shocked the crown with its Blue Storm paint job and the big “FORD”-emblazoned grille similar to that of the concept’s inspiration: the F-150 SVT Raptor. It’s highlighted with black and silver accents, a unique side graphic, and burly lower body kit.
Ford also brought two additional EcoSport concepts, a pair that goes by the handle “Beauty and the Beast.” Insert Ron Perlman jokes here.
Beauty comes in “Copper Stardust” paint and features black roof, LED fog lamps, and leather interior with LCD screens in the headrests.
Beast stands out in a pearlescent “Speed White” coat and features blue and orange contrast details, 18” black alloy wheels, air intake on the hood, and LED lighting on the interior.
Ford was sparse with additional details, but these two vehicles appear to be purely for kicks. But, sure, we’ll throw it out there: we’d drive the hell outta the EcoSport Storm/EcoSport Beauty/EcoSport Beast if Ford brought them here and slapped a hybrid powertrain in ‘em.
