Vehicle Overview

The Escort used to be one of Ford’s best-selling models, but it plays a smaller role now that the Focus has taken over as the high-volume small car. The Escort survives as a four-door sedan available as a fleet vehicle for daily car-rental companies and other high-volume customers. The sporty ZX2 coupe is still available to consumers.

Ford hasn’t said when Escort production will end, but there may not be a 2002 version of the sedan, and the ZX2 might stay in production longer.
