Great Britain

Introduced last year and produced in Germany, Spain and at Dagenham in the UK Fiesta went on sale in February. Late this year 1.3 litre S and Ghia joined the range.
Although in Germany Taunus was available with the V6 engine from it's introduction in 1970, British Cortina had always only four-cylinder power units. Launched in Septwember the new Cortina 2300 is the first British six-cylinder in this range.
The new Granada is only asembled in Germany. For the British market however there is different line-up of engines.

Escort RS Mexico

The RS Mexico is an enthusiast's car for the driver who really enjoys motoring. Powered by a 1600cc OHC unit which derives its 10% extra power (over the standard engine) from an improved exhaust system, the RS Mexico gives the performance that leaves lesser cars standing. It also has revised RS suspension, like the RS2000, to give a more comfortable ride but without sacrificing the excellent road holding and handling characteristcs that have been in-breed into the new RS Fords.
The Escort's success in the major rallies has resulted in the development of the heavy duty bodyshell together with the front air dam and black rear spoiler which improve straight line stability and help to reduce aerodynamic drag. The RS Mexico is trimmed to match the performance capability of the car. It features tight-fitting competition bucket seats similar to those used by Roger Clark to win rallies. Within the instrument cluster is a comprehensive set of dials, including an oil prcssure gauge, all easily visble through the top of the sports steering wheel. Housed in the face of the 120 mph calibrated speedometer are both trip and total mileage reCorders.
The RS Mexico will make you the envy of other motorists because of its sporty appearance, and high degree of engineering sophistication. by selecting from the wide range of Rallye Sport parts available through Rallye Sport dealers, you can convert this exciting car into Group 1 or Group 2 form. A multi-purpose car, the RS Mexico can get you to work quickly, give your family safe weekond motoring, and hold its own on forost and tarmac rally-stages alike.
Among the many standard features are:
* 1593cc OHC engine.
* Front suspension - independent McPherson struts, coil spring, telescopic dampers, stabilizer bar, revised geometry.
* Rear suspension - live axle, semi-elliptic leaf springs, radius arms, telescopic dampers.
* 5 ½ in x 13in steel wheels, 175/70SR steel braced radial ply tyres.
* Servo assisted front disc (9.6in dia) and rear drum (9in) brakes in a dual-line brake system with a 7in brake booster.
* Webber twin choke carburettor.
* Four speed all synchromesh, heavy duty single rail shift gear box.
* Lucas 45 amp alternator.
* Halogen headlights.
* Two door mounted rear view minors.
* Intermittent windscreen wipers.
* Extensive sound insulation.
* Fabric upholstery.

RS 1800


RS 1800


The RS1800 has been developed and bullt to carry on where the RS1600 left off - way out in front. It incorporates a blend of exciting new features - to improve both comfort and performance - as well as many RS1600 mechanical components reliably proven under the roughest and most extreme rallying conditions.
Like the RS Mexico and RS2000 the heavy duty body of the RS1800 is fltted wlth a front air dam and rear spoiler to improve straight line stabillty and reduce aerodynamic drag.
The engine is a 16-valve, 4-cyllnder aluminium BDA unit, based on the successful RS1600 engine but bored out to give a displacement of 1834cc. A detuned version of the Group 2 power plant that has propelled the works car to victory in the RAC, Welsh and Scottish International rallies, the "road going" version with its progressive twin venturi, single Weber carburetor gives an impressive touring fuel consumption of 29.6 mpg (Motor).
A two piece drive shaft cuts down underbody vibration. The Ford gearbox, modified to handle the increased power, is consistently precise. An improved heavy duty suspension gives a siqnificantly better ride then the RS1600 - firm but comfortable. Road handling is noticeably bettter too. 175/70HR13 radial ply tyres on 5 ½ in styled road wheels are standard. And so is dual line braking. But the RS1800 is more than just a high performance car - it's quiet and comfortable as well.
Competition Trim - For the competition minded owner the RS1800 is available with shapely, fabric covered twin bucket seats that qive you fast cornering body support (the kind that helped Roger Clark win so many events). At-a-glance instrumentation includes tachometer and oil pressure gauge. There are intermittent windscreen wipers and an electric screen washer. The carpet covers extensive sound deadening material. If you are going to win you might as well win in comfort.


RS 2000


RS 200

The RS2000 is a car wich everything for the driver who has a taste for excitment, and above all-wants to be different. Like style. Style that starts with the functional polyurethane front end, and includes the integral front air dam and black rear spoiler. The RS2000 has performance worthy of a car with a winning pedigree as proved by winning the Texaco Tour of Britain. There's an uprated 2-litre OHC angin and "competition bred" mechanicals including a four branch exhaust manifold. This highly efficient system improves the engine power output by about 12% Din PS. Revsed suspension offers a quieter, more comfortable ride while retaining the outstanding road holding that you expect from an RS Ford. Coupled with the most functional and attractive seats in the business, the RS2000 holds its own with its rivals for the "executive performance car" market. But don't take our word for it, here's what Jeff Daniels, Technical Editor of Autocar said about the RS2000 when evaluating it against the BMW 320i "in the end, it was the Escort which, for me, emerged the winner by the shortest of heads. It gaineed in two main respects, size and seating. The size is important because if all other things ara equal, the slimmer of the two cars will always have a slight edge, and indeed the Escort felt that perseptible bit more nimble. Apart from that, its seats had clearly been designed to suit the enthusiast driver, and gave more sideways support than the BMW's more conventional type. For sheer driving pleasure, both cars complettely fulfilled my concept of a sport saloon - but in the end my vote had to go the Escot"
