New Features and Capabilities for the 2021 Ford EcoSport

Unlike how it is with other automotive companies, every new Ford lineup we get here at Brandon Ford in Tampa, FL, every new model year is exciting – even if that lineup is a carry over for that particular year. And there’s no better example of that than the 2021 Ford EcoSport, which arrived here at Brandon Ford as a carry over – but, and this is an important distinction, as a Ford carry over. That’s an important distinction because even when they’re carry overs, our new Ford lineups boast impressive new features and capabilities they didn’t boast the year before – as you’ll see here as we check out the new features and capabilities for the 2021 Ford EcoSport lineup.

Ford and Mappo Team Up to Bring Some Culture to Navigation Maps

Navigation systems surely have come a long way over the years – especially considering navigation systems used to be large pieces of paper that were impossible to fold and often contained out of date information, and if they weren’t out of date at that exact moment, they soon would be as construction projects were completed and cities expanded. Nowadays, the navigation systems in our new Ford cars, trucks and SUVs are updated regularly – even daily or multiple times a day sometimes – so that they always display accurate navigation information. Sure, that’s great, but that’s all they did – at least until now. That’s because Ford has become the first automotive company to team up with Mappo to further enhance the navigation systems of Ford cars, trucks and SUVs by adding cultural points of interest to maps so people can enjoy their road trips even more. So, let’s get right down to it and find out how Ford and Mappo are teaming up to bring some culture to our navigation maps.

Ford Performance Winch Now Available for Most Ford Super Duty Trucks
