Low cost Ford will attempt to cater to Chinese tastes

What you see here is the rebirth of an icon: famous or infamous, you be the judge.

The Ford Escort won’t be coming to these shores – or at least it is very highly unlikely – and is aimed squarely at Chinese buyers. Just like Americans, China loves their sedans. The new Escort is a four-door affair with a trunk for a rump.

What do you think of the newest iteration of the Escort? With a storied history, the nameplate can conjure up good memories or nightmares, depending on your personal experiences.
