On a side note op please never change your avatar, it makes me laugh that in every thread you post in someone makes a comment! :)

I wish the Focus RS was a Focus RS Cosworth.

The Escort RS Cosworth was a pretty mean machine, Sierra Cosworth was the one to have though performance wise.

Focus RS is a very very nice car, If only I could afford one.

Ford just meant for the Escort to stop being sold ready for the Focus, but some dealers held some back, I've seen some Escorts on a Y reg! It's a bit like what Vauxhall did to the Carlton into Vectra into Insignia.

I love the white Focus RS.I drive past a house and they have the green and orange focus parked up.Must be his and hers.

Because when the Focus was released they still had a batch of Escorts that hadn't sold, The Escort was dated and had been around for a long time, Ford needed a new platform to work from, Hence time to move on to a totally new medium sized family car, The Focus has been a massive hit and was the number one selling car for over a year..!!!.

They've all rusted away!

Well not all ford but the common cars like corsa, astra,focus,vectra,mondeo

The Corsa is the new Nova.
The Mondeo is the new Sierra, which was the new Cortina.

You're all mixed up.

I wouldnt call it mixed up.I would call it not knowing.I just noticed that there wasnt a new Escort thats all

Welcome to 2011..!!!

As above the Focus replaced the Escort. They did produce the two alongside each other for a short time but mainly so those who liked the old look could still get one. The Escort CVH engine was renowned for turning oil into black treacle to owners who cared to never bother get the oil changed (the run it till it breaks and only ever get an MOT type).

It might be that they revive the name one day, it's something Skoda do regularly over the years. For example the Octavia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C5%A0koda_Octavia_%281959-1971%29http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C5%A0koda_Octavia And there's been some talk of Skoda being about to create a new model called the Felicia, a name previously used on a model made 1995-2001 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C5%A0koda_Felicia and again if you check out the link that name itself was recycled from a 60's car.

There's nothing that special about the Escort, it's just a cheap mass-market car, for people too snobby to buy a Lada or Skoda etc, but not rich enough to buy something decent like a Mercedes or BMW.
