Focus to become Escort??!!

I did a quick search and did not find anyone else had posted this. What is Ford thinking?!! Could it be a really bad April fools joke?

In all honesty, that car looks better now if it's going to be called the Escort.

But yeah...it's official now. Everyone at Ford are idiots.

yea id rather it be called the escort than a focus, because it looks more like a future escort, and all the older escorts are called ZX2's (coupe focii) so this would be the newer escort. this way it doesnt drag down the focus name with its ugly looks. OH I HOPE THEY MAKE THE 2008 FOCUS THE 2008 ESCORT!!

I disagree with ditching the Focus name for the '08 model. It just looks more like an Escort than a Focus. I'm pretty sure the Escort was a better selling car than the Focus was anyway.

but i agree it is more of a escort then focus, maybe the focus may be brought over from europe then, and the current 05 body style will be made til 2010 where we get more parts for the 05

This fourm is definatly not the only one that feels this way. If you read the comments posted on any video hosting site that are hosting videos about the Focus ST or Wolf edition, people agree on the same thing.

So what I am saying is with work something might be able. I rekon there are thousands of ppl who feel the same way. Maybe a few hundred who are willing to buy the ST if Ford were to do something.

The article posted even mentions how the focus RS and ST aren't availble here and there are millions of readers of car and driver, so word is spreading. What needs to be done is a group of people need to start pestering Ford on mass levels.
