Ford Revives Escort for Chinese Market

Before the Focus, the Philippines had the Lynx; but for the rest of the world, Ford’s compact sedan was the Escort. And now, the nameplate’s being revived but for the Chinese market (for now). Shown at Auto China in its final production form, the Escort is a compact sedan based off Ford’s global c-segment platform.

Designed to bridge the gap between the Fiesta and Focus, the Escort is an example of how Ford can fine tune its product strategy to particular markets. With the Chinese market being a more conservative three-box (sedan) market, Ford used a clean sheet design for the Escort. Upfront, it has the familiar Ford corporate face with the signature (Aston Martin) grille. The headlights are unique because they have been designed to incorporate ‘8’—a lucky number in China—into the chrome graphic. The rear part kicks up to create a wider looking backend. The lighting elements are in LEDs.

Inside, the Escort follows the same conservative theme with a cabin that emphasizes room rather than high-tech features. With the advent of portable electronic devices in markets such as China though, Ford has incorporated a 5-volt USB charger aside from the typical 12-volt power outlet. The Escort also has Device Dock—a new way to store, mount, and charge devices that integrates them seamlessly into the in-car entertainment system. Given Chinese motorists like to drive while smoking (or with their windows down), Ford has worked hard to reduce high-speed throbbing by optimizing the design of the side mirrors and its interaction with the body sides.

The Ford Escort is powered by a 1.5-liter Ti-VCT 4-cylinder engine shared with the Fiesta and EcoSport.


  1. I like this design (interior and exterior) better than both the Focus & Fiesta.

  2. Traditional 3-box design. I like the way, how the side mirror "triangular mounting" to the door frame, does not extend pass the front fenders. (creating an entended fake "triangular mounting" for the side mirrors. Similar to the Mazda 3 and 6.

  8. To avoid this situation, an Chandigarh Independent Call Girl must keep his mobile phone under control. When you remove your clothes seductively, you take out his phone, switch it off and keep it in close drawer. This is a psychological game, when you will stand naked in front of him, he would be so much involved in seeing your naked body, that he will forget his phone. At that moment, you can pick his phone, check whether he has taken any pics, if he has, delete them or else keep it yourself. Overall, use any method like stripping, sweet talk or saying firmly no etc, but make sure to take his toy off.
