About Ford Escort
The Ford Escort is a compact car that was produced by the Ford Motor Company from 1984 to 2003. It serves as a successor of the Ford Pinto. The model is regarded as the smallest vehicle in the Ford model line in North America. Manufactured and marketed by Ford, it has long been accredited for its reliable driving performance and solid classic parts. Throughout its long production years, the Escort has developed a long list of its variants. For the most time of the 1980s, the Escort remained the best-selling car in the United States. The vehicle is assembled mainly in Edison, New Jersey; Milpitas, California, and Wayne, Michigan. It is also produced in Mexico and Canada.
The first-generation Escort was put into production between 1980 to 1990. It was initially offered in a hatchback with three or five doors. Also, it was available as a 5-door station wagon in terms of body style. It was marketed in four trim levels: L, GL, GLX, and SS. Later they were simplified into three kinds. The engine it adopted was a 1.6 L CVH I4 one and has later been improved to a 2.0 L Mazda RF diesel I4 one for higher output. The parts of the transmissions are 3-speed ATX/FLC automatic. The upgrades on the parts have helped the Escort be more competitive and user-friendly.

And it was offered in more kinds of body styles: a 3-door hatchback, a 4-door sedan, a 5-door station wagon, and a 5-door hatchback. It added a rear anti-sway bar to enhance the handling stability. It featured a grille insert style and set the rear license plate between the taillamps. In regards to the parts, a 5-speed manual transmission has replaced the previous low-speed ones. As a result, the efficiency has been largely increased. The Escort has always been dedicated to offering users a safe and comfortable driving experience.
For the third generation, the Escort has altered and refined even more. A new body style of sporty coupe comes into appearance. This time, the engine is lower-powered and thus provides an economical ride outside. A very rare trim package features chrome wheel covers that became accessible. The interior parts of the Escort have been redesigned, including taillights and reflectors. The Ford Escort does mean a lot in American auto history. It can be said to win a reputation from the whole industry. The rank as "A Consumer Guide Best Buy" is convincing proof.
