Ford Escort 2015
This year at the Shanghai Motor Show, Ford introduced the new 2015 Ford Escort concept, which should appear in mass production by 2015 on the world’s largest car market in the world.
Ford had a record year in 2012 on the Chinese market with over 600,000 units sold, but still very much behind the General Motors and Volkswagen, who crossing the figure of two million. Perhaps one reason is that Ford’s products in China are mostly identical to those sold in Europe and America, and they are therefore too expensive for the average Chinese. Last year at this market, Ford have sold about 5.5 million compacts, mostly cheaper models, and Ford says they have listened to customers and the new 2015 Ford Escort that will be a best buy.
According to the people of Ford’s new 2015 Ford Escort hatchback will have all the features that decorate the Focus as well as functionality, quality and safety measures, but at a significantly lower price just because the production will take place in China. The specific characteristics of these two Ford’s compact are similar, and this applies to the LED headlamps and design similar to that of the larger Fusion / Mondeo. From the design in 2015 Ford Escortcontinues Ford’s Kinetic design school with a big mask done in the style of Aston Martin and it is expected that the production model will be very similar.

There are no details about the mechanics, but it is speculated that it will be offered two EcoBoost engine (1.0L I3 with 123 hp and the 1.5L I4 with 177 hp) as well as several atmospheric engine. As we mentioned at the beginning of the text, new 2015 Ford Escort is exclusively for Chinese customers.
