The Ford Escort was a British automobile launched at the end of 1967 as a replacement for the Anglia.
Codenamed within Ford as Erika–86, and sometimes referred to as the "Mk IV" (although it was not officially the fourth generation), it was instantly recognisable as an updated version of the previous model, with a smooth Scorpio style nose and the "straked" rear lamp clusters smoothed over.
The fifth generation Escort was launched in South America in 1992, being manufactured in Brazil and Argentina by Autolatina, a joint-venture between Volkswagen and Ford.

Ford made it worth the wait by giving the ZX2 a flashy body style all its own and a 2.0-liter 16-valve engine dubbed "Zetec" that pumped out 130 horsepower and hustled the ZX2 from 0 to 60 mph in around 8 seconds.

The Ford Escort was introduced by Ford in the United States in 1981.
All the Ford Escorts ever manufactured and sold were equipped with relatively small engine, starting with the 1.6 liter 68 hp when it was introduced in 1981 to the 2.0 liter 130 hp engine used for its final version, the Ford Escort ZX2.
Although its engine gives it a meager performance, many Ford Escort buyers were satisfied with it, considering that most of them must have bought one because of the practicality its body style has to offer rather than its power.

Ford Racing, from Empire Interactive isn't quite that elusive diamond in the rough, but it is certainly a decent game at the $9.99 suggested retail price.
The graphics in Ford Racing follow the same routine as the gameplay setting in the career mode: You'll have to suffer through truly appalling environmental graphics in the early courses, before you get to see some nice eye candy in and around the latter tracks.
The music in Ford Racing is typical racing game fare, and to a discerning ear it may sound a bit like the soundtrack in the original Gran Turismo.

 Ford Focus History
After the Ford Escort (European) Mk IV was criticised by the motoring press as being designed by the "bean counters" and for its mediocre ride, handling and quality, Ford decided to take more risks in its replacement.
Ford attempted to market the sedan version in Europe as a mini-executive car by only offering it in the Ghia trim level, something that it had tried before with the Orion of the 1980s.
The European Focus would also suffer from some recall issues, but in 2002, according to German reports and surveys, the Focus was claimed to be the most reliable car between 1 to 3 years old on the German car market.

 Ford Escort RS 2000
The RS 2000 was designed by Ford's Cologne styling department in Germany, home of the company's high performance European operation.

Despite the fact that the Australian-made RS 2000 was a long way from being a real RS in the European sense, it was still a much more exciting drive than the ordinary Escorts, and that is why it remained popular with enthusiastic drivers.

However, the car wasn't really an Escort at all, being based from a Sierra floorpan and mechanicals, including its longitudinally mounted engine, and was merely clothed in body panels to look (supposedly) like a standard Mk 5.
