The History of the Ford Escort Mk4


As the successor model of the Escort MK3 (9/80 - 2/86) built Ford MK4 as the "facelift" of 3/86 - 9/90 in Europe.
In Brazil, the Escort was built in a different time period, namely from 1987 to 1992.
In Argentina, it was even built from 1988 to 1994.
The Mk4 is also internally as "Erika-86" or as "MK III ½" been named.
although the correct term would be quite Escort '86, what the Indicates the beginning of this series
But unfortunately, the term has Mk4 for this model naturalized, which stands for Mark 4 (English Model 4)
and is actually applied only for the English model.
The development costs amounted to 640 million marks, which thus far less than in the MT3 (five billion dollars)
The body of the 4 - it's based on the 3 Series models only 3/4 of the attachment parts have been changed.
Were improved e.g. passive safety, aerodynamics, Chassis and interior.
For the first time there was a regulated three-way catalytic converter in the escort with 90 hp for the 1.6 liter engine.
In addition, there was the XR3i and RS Turbo comes as standard ABS on the Mechanical-hydraulic-based works.
