New Ford Escort 2018 comes out exclusively in China

Updated Jun 02, 2021 | Same topic: Automotive Industry Updates

The new Ford Escort 2018 design comes from a combination of the current Focus and the former one.

The Ford Escort 2018, for a long time (since 1968), has gained its reputation in Europe from being a reminder of fire-breathing speed cars to a family workhorse. Though it said goodbye to the old continent in 2004, it makes a comeback in the Chinese market and will be out exclusively in the communist country.

Also coming out this occasion, the 4th gen Focus makes its way to Chinese car enthusiasts. The new Focus as coming to China will run on Ford’s latest global platform.
