2013 Ford Escort Concept

This is not your Grandfather's Ford Escort. The 2013 Ford Escort Concept displays radical styling changes compared to the popular models of the 1980's and early 90's. To begin with, this is a longer version in a 4-door sedan unlike its 2-door predecessors.

It is fitting that the latest idea for Escorts was exhibited at the Shanghai Auto show. The Chinese have an infatuation with older vehicles and are drawn to brand names from the past.

Exterior & Interior

Simple, but in a stunningly futuristic way the front of the 2013 Ford Escort is imposing. The front grille design appears to have been inspired by another manufacturer.

On either side, the headlamp assemblies are wing-like and what appears to be an actual wing tip can be seen in each swept back corner. The headlights themselves are compartmentalized shining like gemstones, with the amber front turn indicator lamp neatly placed at the inside corner.

A bottom air intake mirroring the grille above and side running lamps complete the cars face. Contoured lines extend from the front to the back giving the Escort the feel of a continuous flow. The silver spoke wheels are a nice complement to the other chrome appointments.

Even the taillights taper off that flows seamlessly extending from the side to a nicely fashioned rear.

The interior is roomy and follows in the tradition of other recent Ford compacts such as the Fusion and Focus.
