2018 Ford Escort
American manufacturer used this nameplate several times. There were different models, designed for different markets. Before this current model, latest version was European Escort, which was in production until 2003. After 12 years of brake, company introduced a completely new model, which comes exclusively for the Chinese market. It comes based on older version of popular Focus, which came redesigned recently. It is a compact four-door saloon, which comes with plenty of features designed especially for this fast-growing market. First model came in 2015, so don’t expect bigger changes for 2018 Ford Escort. It will come with the pretty much same characteristics, with same exterior design, same interior, same powertrain and pretty much same equipment. We expect its arrival late this year.
2018 Ford Escort redesign and features
As we already mentioned, 2018 Ford Escort should come with the pretty much same characteristics. It is a model that rides on the same platform as older version of Focus saloon. Despite the fact that rides on a bit older platform, this model comes with plenty of modern features. You can easily see the contour of older Focus saloon, but 2018 Ford Escort completely follows latest design language of the brand. So, front and rear ends are completely the same as on other newest models from Ford. When it comes to interior, it is completely new. Attractive dashboard and instrument cluster dominate all over the cabin. There are also plenty of equipment and latest technology features. However, even top range model doesn’t feature a touchscreen. When it is about quality, all materials inside are made of soft-touch plastic that features good quality.
2018 Ford Escort engine
The 2018 Ford Escort will continue with the same, familiar powertrain. There is just one engine choice. It is a 1.5 liter petrol engine, same that is in Chinese-market Fiesta. Despite the fact that it had 113 horsepower, 2018 Escort runs very smoothly, thanks to excellent 6-speed automatic. Base 5-speed manual also works very well.
2018 Ford Escort release date and price
We expect 2018 Ford Escort to arrive somewhere late this year. It should keep the same price, which starts around 15.000 dollars.
