Ford Escort MK6 RS2000

Description

The sixth and the last generation of the Ford Escort was launched in January 1995 and was heavily based on the previous fifth generation.

The Escort MK6 featured new headlights, redesigned bonnet, front wings, front and rear bumpers, wing mirrors, door handles and 4 different grilles (slats, honeycomb, circles and chrome). At the rear, the Ford logo moved from the right to the centre of the boot, except for the van and convertible models. The interior of the car was also hugely revised with better quality plastics and an all new dashboard arrangement. Dynamically, the handling and ride were much improved with revised suspension set up.

The RS2000 model was the fastest derivative of the Escort MK6. Like its predecessor, the Escort MK5 RS200, it was fitted with a naturally aspirated 1996 cm3 engine producing 150 hp (110 kw) and 190 Nm of torque. The car accelerated from 0-100km/h in 8,7 sec and had a top speed of 210km/h. The RS2000 ceased production in June 1996, and was the last Escort ever to wear the famous RS badge which did not resurface until the Focus RS arrived in 2002.
