2021 Ford Escort: Refresh, Specs, Options

Do you remember the Ford Escort? The once popular Ford sedan is as good as remembered in countries like ours. If you didn’t live before the 2000s, or if you are a classic car yourself, you probably haven’t heard of it. That is understandable.

In the People’s Republic, however, the nameplate is still very much alive. The escort on the Chinese market lives on in the form of a small limousine based on the second generation Focus. It’s just gotten a hefty refresh and we’re starting to think that if Ford Philippines decides to revive its range of vehicles, it should be considering it.

The updates are quite extensive and the new model seems to be able to compete with the compact sedans currently available on our market. The revised Escort has received LED head and taillights that flank the new honeycomb grille. The front bumper has also been slightly tweaked for a sportier look.

You can find other important upgrades on the inside. This interior is covered with two-tone brown and black leather, which gives the cabin a first-class atmosphere. And for this iteration of the Escort, Ford gave it up two 10.25 inch screens, so the cockpit feels more upscale. It is now safer too – it now has a total of six airbags.

Under the hood, the escort packs a 1.5 liter gasoline mill that generates 122 hp and is associated with either a six-speed manual or an automatic transmission.
