Ford have managed to protect their cars from unwanted use by third parties by means of transponders in the keys.

In 2000, the brazilian Ford developed a cheaper version of the Zetec-SE engine, to compete with the classic VW AP engines.
It's also a much smaller engine than the SE version, which allowed it to be then installed on the Ford Ka, replacing the weak Endura-E engine by the time.

Formula Ford provides drivers with their first insights into how a racing car feels to drive and how to properly set up a car to be competitive.
A Formula Ford car is one of the more distinctive-looking open-wheel race cars because it does not have wings to create aerodynamic downforce, which is one of the reasons the series has persisted for so long in motor racing.
Ford administers some of the national Formula Ford championships around the world, but older cars are very popular with club racers, providing the ground for several organizations to run their own series.

 Ford Fiesta Zetec : Road Test
Like all other Fiesta models, the Zetec features a 1.6-litre engine with a modest 74kW of power, and it's shame that Ford couldn't have whacked on some high lift cylinder heads or at least a modified exhaust for an extra couple of kilowatts, because this is the sports model after all.
Instead, Ford's European branch decided to give the Zetec a boost in cornering performance rather than straight-line speed, and in hindsight I reckon it was a good choice, because this little tacker is quite a tenacious vehicle, and well within reach for many new car buyers.
Ford's tuned and tinkered Fiesta Zetec surprised me with its tenacity when thrown into a corner, and even more impressive is its dual personality, able to cruise in from a day hacking through the alps and then slot into commuter traffic in the big smoke.

Ford Focus Mk 2 ST The all-new Mk 2 Ford Focus was launched in 2004 and was a task few manufacturers would have relished; to replace a car which was universally praised and set unprecedented new standards to a class.
Ford apparently decided that a completely new car would not be profitable in this heavily price and incentive-driven market, while sales of the original Mk 1 began to slide in the US and Canada.
Ford attempted to market the sedan 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.

A Formula One engine, produced for Ford by Cosworth, was also badged as a Ford Zetec, although this was technologically entirely unrelated.
After small changes to fix this problem the engine was known as the Zetec-E. The Zetec had another redesign in 1998, this version is known as the Zetec-R, the main differences being a two-piece crankcase which helped damp out noise and vibration, and conventional tappets with shims rather than hydraulic ones.
It is also a much smaller engine than the SE version, which allowed it to be installed in the Ford Ka, replacing the Endura-E which was considered underpowered and outdated.

And, no, Ford would not be getting the larger Rio that would replace it because Kia was keeping that for itself.

Ford Australia has used that time to hone the pricing position, with the result being an extremely competitive $14,990 starting point for the base three-door version.

Its striking lines are the evolution of Ford’s trademark New Edge form, honed and polished on the Puma, Ka, and Cougar.
The Focus is a tall car, the height of its domed-roof cleverly disguised by the rising waistline linking those big, bold angular headlamp units and low bonnet line to the high-placed triangular-shaped tail-lights flanking the rear screen.

Co-designed with yamaha in japan and originally branded 'sigma', the zetec-se motors are totally different designs from the 1.6, 1.8 and 2.0 zetecs used in the out-going mk3 fiesta, the escort, mondeo and focus.
The mk4 fiesta uses the 1.25 and 1.4 zetec-se motors, the smaller motor available across the entire range bar the entry-level encore, and the larger featuring in the range-topping ghia-x and the sportier 's' and 'zetec'-badged models, available only as a three door with this engine.
While this isn't startling, it's not bad for a 1388cc motor and, as with the bigger zetecs, the actual figures vary enormously from car to car.
