Ford had recently updated the EcoSport line-up and introduced a new variant called SE that got rid of the tailgate-mounted spare wheel in order to have a cleaner look. However, prior to that, the automaker had also made some revisions to the existing variants, which included the addition of an electric sunroof on the Titanium trim as standard.

It is now being speculated that the Titanium S variant will likely be getting a few exterior changes including a revamped front bumper, LED daytime running lights placed below the headlights, LED tail lights as well as new alloy wheels. On the inside, the 2021 Ford EcoSport Titanium S could get a new touchscreen infotainment system.

It should be noted that Ford is yet to confirm this news. Ford currently offers the EcoSport with two engines, including a 1.5-litre three-cylinder NA petrol unit that belts out 123 PS of maximum power, along with 149 Nm of peak torque, and a 1.5-litre four-cylinder turbocharged diesel motor producing 100 PS of power and 215 Nm of torque.
