Ford didn’t launch the Ecosport facelift in India so I recreated it
As I used to get Ford genuine parts through some dealers, I got a chance to get the various parts from the unlaunched version of EcoSport.

Hello everyone. I am coming back with another big modification, especially of interest to Ford owners. Some people might have booked this thinking that they would receive this model. But unfortunately, it didn’t happen as Ford shut down its operations in India. They completely scrapped every single part.
Here, I am going to show in detail the unlaunched Ford EcoSport 2021, which is a completely production-ready design and its parts.
People already might have seen this model when it was tested on the roads or via spy shots or maybe in some vehicle yards. But later, Ford announced its exit. This model also had to be scrapped. Yes, all the parts from this car had been declared scrap and given to scrap dealers.
As I used to get Ford genuine parts through some dealers, I got a chance to get the various parts from the unlaunched version of EcoSport. So I decided to try to install them on the last available model as it’s compatible with these parts.
Below is a list of parts required for the conversion:
- Front bumper full.
- Faux skid plate.
- Lower air deflector.
- Bumper holder.
- Air intake frame.
- Fog lamp frame.
- Radiator main grille.
- DRL indicator cluster.
- Fog lamp (round one).
- Tail light.
- Some screws.
The tail light, in particular, was a completely scrapped unit. But I somehow turned it into a working unit. I had to change the glass cover as well, but I made it look like a direct fit and a fully working unit.
I have procured all the necessary parts mentioned above and installed them on my own as basically, I’m a complete DIY person. I love to do R&D.

I haven’t taken pics during the installation. Here below, I am posting the post installation pics:
I smoked it for a proper “sports variant” look, without blocking the lit area:

I have put in a lot of effort into procuring and making them work. So please give proper credit whenever it’s shared.
