History of the ESCORT, looked at by

The Ford Escort was created by the American Ford Motor Company. It was manufactured by Ford of Britain and Ford Germany from 1968 to 2000. The last years it was manufactured by Ford North America. This particular model was developed especially for the European market from 1968 until 2000. The Ford Escort was the first Ford model which Ford sold in Europe.

The first generation of Escorts had rear-wheel drive and a four-speed manual gearbox. It was the first small Ford to use rack-and-piston steering. Initially sold as a 2-door saloon, a 2-door estate version was introduced later in 1968. In the latter it was possible to fold the backseats to provide more loading space in the boot.

The second generation of Ford Escorts was introduced in 1974 and manufactured both by Ford of Britain and Ford Germany. This second generation looks a lot like its predecessor save for the front of the car. Also technically it ressembles the first generation. Like the first generation of Escorts, the second became succesful in rallies as well.

In 1980 the third generation was lauched. This third generation was available as a three- or five-door saloon or as a convertible. Like its predecessor the Escort mk3 had a codename during production. The second generation's being Brenda, the third generation was nicknamed 'Erika' after the leader of the product planning team Erick A. Reickert.

In 1983 the Ford Escort Mark IV was launched which only differed slightly from the Mark III. Nevertheless it was facelifted to make it a better competitor on the car market. The fifth generation however, had a completely new design, which was updated twice as well. The original Mark V received a lot of criticism for the bodywork. Ford decided to facelift the model to address this issue. For the Mark V Escort a number of technical options were available including power steering, electric windows, centrol locking and air conditioning.
