Ford Escort Specs
Ford has closed its production of Escort since 2003, and after that they have received so many letters from loyal fans and customers who like the car a lot. Indeed Escort was one of the good models from the brand. Now Ford is speculating on the matter and thinking to bring back the ZX2 Ford Escort. Ford Escort was a reliable, safe and innovative transportation which really inspired the young Americans. The car has earned the right name and it carries indeed the name Escort well.
The real innovations to Ford Escort came after 1997 when Ford brought forward their ZX2 trim of Escort. The aim was to the young market of car lovers and also to replace the other models of Ford Escort like GT. The innovations also came with engine specifications. There were three models of engines that were installed in the ZX2 trim of escort. It was the use of Zetec DOHC engine which brought a change in power and performance to the car. Now Escort was roaring more on the roads and flying high with attitude which people liked while sitting on the steering wheel.
