Hey, my first car was an Escort. I couldn't afford any better. --Ed Poor

Thanks, Tarquin. Nothing like threatening to delete an article, to inspire a bit of quick research, eh? --Ed Poor

The "World car"[edit]

This article concentrates mostly on the British and European Escort. I have interspersed some stuff about the American version, but it seems like the timeline between the two [1] is not very closely related, and the American and European versions do not actually share that many parts. I do not know how to fix this; it seems like a lot of work to separate the two timelines completely. Interspersing the American and European changes also seems messy and confusing. Being a "World Car" versions were also being sold in Australia and Asia. The American Escort is still being made with the 2005 Escort ZX2 [2], while the European model was killed in 2000. I'm not sure what to do, so please help if you can.– PlatinumX 20:47, 15 Jul 2004 (UTC)

Where was it built?[edit]

I think it might be good to have a reference to where each of the various models were built.... but I only have part of that info. Maybe we can share?

First version -- Wayne, Michigan; Edison, New Jersey; Saarlouis, Germany; can't remember whether the UK plant was Dagenham or Halewood.

Second NA version -- Wayne, Michigan and Hermosillo, Mexico...

Wayne remained an Escort plant until the Focus was introduced. I believe the ZX2 stayed on in Hermosillo....

I know the Saarlouis plant built Escort through the mid-90s, probably stayed until the European end. UK plants I lost track of, except that I know Halewood is a Jaguar facility now.--Pmeisel 13:28, 20 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Split up[edit]

This page was just too long and complicated. I decided to split it up into the two pages we now have. --SFoskett 21:59, July 13, 2005 (UTC)


Should this article be labelled as a disambiguation page? RJFJR (talk) 14:51, 18 September 2010 (UTC)[reply]

Yes it really is a dab page and should be formatted as such. I'll change it. P. D. Cook Talk to me! 17:35, 18 March 2011 (UTC)[reply]

I just reverted a change that added images into the page, in my opinion it looks better as a plain text disambiguation. If consensus can be established that it would be better to have images (maybe thumbnails?), I would not really have any problem with that course of action.

Per Wikipedia:Manual of Style (disambiguation pages), I don't think images are appropriate here. The verbal descriptions are adequate. P. D. Cook Talk to me! 21:55, 23 March 2011 (UTC)[reply]

What about the Ford Escort made in India?[edit]

For many years, there was a Ford Escort made in India.

Palki Sharma of WION did a whole program about it

So if there are pages for Ford Escort in North America, Europe, and China, there should also be one for India, imvho.
