As the financial year is coming to an end, a good deal of manufacturers have announced world prices hike across their portfolio that includes the likes of Maruti Suzuki, Renault and Nissan. Now, the latest manufacturer to join the bandwagon is Ford. While an increment in prices is fairly common at the end of the financial year, we suspect it is the ever-increasing input payments that has led Ford to hike the prices of all its models. The new expenditures will be effective from April 1, 2020.
Although the manufacturer hasn’t announced the exact extent of the rate hike, it will motley from modeling to sit. We feel the price hike could be up to 3% for each model. Ford currently has five simulations on sale in India – Figo, Aspire, Freestyle, EcoSport and the Endeavor. Just some time ago, Ford already hiked the prices of Aspire, Figo, and Freestyle along with a variant rejig. Here’s a detailed look at the current price range of each of these models.

Figo INR 5.64 lakh to INR 8.19 lakh
Aspire INR 7.24 lakh to INR 8.69 lakh
Freestyle INR 7.09 lakh to INR 8.84 lakh
EcoSport INR 7.99 lakh to INR 11.49 lakh
Endeavour INR 29.99 lakh to INR 35.45 lakh

The gives are valid merely till the end of March or till assets last-place. The interests include an exchange bonus of up to INR 20,000 and steadfast bonus and corporate rebates of INR 5,000 and INR 4,000 respectively.
In more recent news, Ford recently launched a new SE trim of the EcoSport sub-compact SUV. The biggest talking pitch about this new trim is its rear posterior entrance intend. The SE trim loses out on the EcoSport’s unique tailgate-mounted spare wheel, and as such, the entire tush barrier is different from the standard model. Incidentally, the brand-new Ford Ecosport SE is actually same to the version that’s sold in international markets like Europe and North America.
Ford has also been prepping a new mid-size SUV for the Indian market that will slot in between the EcoSport and the Endeavor in the carmaker’s lineup.
