Ford is bringing the Escort back, but only to China. The new Ford Escort will be launched on the China car market in 2014. The Ford Escort concept debuted in April on the Shanghai Auto Show.
Not a new name, and not a very new car either. The new Escort is based on the current China-made Ford Focus Classic, which is a slightly dressed up second generation Ford Focus. The Ford Escort will technically replace the Ford Focus Classic, and will be positioned under the current third generation Ford Focus.
The new Escort will be based on this 2nd generation Focus Mk2.
The Global C platform of the current Ford Focus Mk3 is based on the C1 platform used by the Focus Mk2.
