Ford has confirmed it will travel to the Beijing Motor Show to unveil a new compact sedan that will resurrect the Escort nameplate. Details are being kept under wraps until next Saturday, but two images likely taken at a Ford factory in China give us a good idea of what to expect from the compact sedan.
Previewed by a close-to-production concept at last year's Shanghai Motor Show, the Escort will be roughly the same size as a four-door Focus sedan but it will be aimed at a clientele willing to pay extra for more room inside and a wide panoply of high-tech feature. The Dearborn-based automaker believes the typical Escort buyer will be older and wealthier than the average Focus buyer.
