The next variant of Ford EcoSport, likely to make an entry this year, has been spotted recently. Images of Ford EcoSport Storm 2018 surfaced right after the car was teased by the company for Brazilian markets. The images show the car in a silver-black colour scheme and significant design changes with the interior and exterior, all in order to make the new Ford EcoSport Storm 2018 look butch.

The design language on the Ford EcoSport Storm 2018 seems to be similar to that of company's F-50 Raptor. The changed front fascia features a blackened front grille with 'Storm' written in the centre and the Ford badge above it, black strips running across the bonnet, and fog lamps with black garnishes.

Even more black is used on the top, with black roof rails and roof rack, 17-inch alloy wheels with darkened finish, and darkened tail lights at the back. Air vents can be found close to the A-pillar of the car.
