Hmm, a 5 clyinder engine making 300 hp, or a 4 making 240.... I'll take the 5. It's an I5, so it's not like it's not unbalanced or anything. It's like half a V-10. They use it in the Focus ST and the Volvos. Soon, when they bring the current Focus chassis over here, you will be able to swap in the ST engine.

Am I the only one who thinks that a Focus stealing the ZX2 emblem is a little wrong? If this car comes out and someone asks what we drive there going to immediately ecuate us with this new...thing. We already dont have enough recognition in the aftermarket tuning world as it is but now we will be compared to this new car that is just going to steal our name. if he car has to come out I would want them to change the name. Call it what it is, a Focus. Give it a real nice after name  look at Dodge with th dodge "Nirto" what the hell. What I mean is call it something like the Ford Focus TDR (two-door) or something like that. Anyone agree?

I'm down. If we don't then soon all we can say to avoid confusion is calling our car an escort.

*shudder*

No offense to our escort brethren.

99fordxz2... I hate to burst your bubble, but most dealers and dealership think of the zx2 as a focus. Goto any ford dealership and ask them what a zx2 is / was and they will more then likely tell you a focus.

That sucks because I like to think the Escort ZX2 is superior in looks, handling, and performance to the focus. We should have our own classification. Not to be confused with a focus.

Quit getting butt hurt over a name. Instead of whining on an internet forum, show the world what the ZX2 is all about!

First of all I don't know how you could walk into a Ford dealership and have someone that works there call a Zx2 a focus. They shouldn't be working there if they do that.....I can see a average person that knows absolutly nothing about cars doing that though just because the Focus is usually what has the ZX name behind it, still not an excuse. Ford is however not really using ZX quite as much at least not on the sedans. They have dropped calling them ZX4s and its just standard SE, at least that is what I have noticed when stocking in cars. I can't quite remember with the hatchbacks though. I don't really work that department that much anymore since I have switched to days.

I agree Miranda, they shouldnt be working there.. but I question the salesman training in these instances not the dealership. Many saleman I ahve spoken to have called the ZX2 a focus. The ZX2 as popular as it is in our community seems to have not captured the minds of dealers in its short history. That is why they call it a Focus ZX2.

In my experience, Ford also tends to sell towards their higher end cars rather then their economy cars. A salesman will push a Fusion or Mustang before they push a Focus. RE: The price tag.
