Here's a link to the article in the autoblogs...



As expected, a whole lot dowdier than the concept Escort IV. So much for Audi A3 aspirations...

Still, this is way on-target for being a hit in BRIC countries -- most strongly in Brazil, where reliable sources say this'd be the replacement for the old Ford Ka... with their New Fiesta's 1.5L engine (not EB'd), it'd sell like molly at Electric Zoo. Says a 1.0L Triple would also be offered... sorry 'Scorters, no plans for USDM. It would compete more likely with Yarises than 3s and Corollas at any rate. *shrugs* :sleep:

If it where to come to USDM that is one I would definitely get. Nice lines and it has something similar to a 3rd gen.

Ford destroyed the Escort name in the United States. The Escort will probably never return to the USDM.:(

Not true, MB Ford in SC USA has a cardboard stand up of the new Escort and it says "its back, and better than ever"

They are compeeting with dodge because dodge has brought back 3 of thier once discontinued cars.

idk, I was looking at the new US 2015 Focus it looks identical to this new Escort. Ford really likes this new trapezoid grill. I think we will be stuck with the Focus name for awhile.

2014 Escort

2015 US Focus


2015 Mustang (why not)

lol I got contacted by ford about this car, seems somebody is paying attention to us a bit. but suffice they still can not say if they will bring this exact car back with the name plate here or if it will be the focus.

personally I think it will be the focus.

The new Escort is a bit wider and taller than the Fiesta but not quite the same size as the Focus. It will be on sale soon in China to replace the Ka and compete primarily with the Chery Riich, the Honda Fit and the Toyota Yaris. There are no plans to launch the Escort name in the US right now... as we have the Fiesta.
