Revised Ford Escort: all-new interior...





While the Chinese market Ford Escort is mostly getting a new face outside, its interior is all-new.

Ford has been using this Mercedes-like approach to their new interior designs. This means 2 screens incorporated into one simple wide piece of glass.
They have done it in other models as well, like the Chinese version of the Edge. Or the new Equator SUV.
Which is looks much more modern than any of their US interiors (Except the Mach-E)

This makes the interior of the new Bronco Sport look even worse than it is. I really do like the Bronco Sport. But the complicated, busy dash design is just out of place. Something simpler like the "regular" Bronco would have been great.
Or something like this. I mean, if they can use it in their cheapest Chinese model, it is probably super cheap to produce.

What do you think?

Looks really good, better than any Ford interior product in the US.

The dual display setup is reminiscent of Hyundai/Kia's setup in the Ioniq 5/EV 6.

It's truly shameful that Ford, an American company, designs better products for their customers overseas than they do in the US. I mean, that interior looks great! Compare that to the ugly Ford Edge interior, which is a vehicle several classes above. This is why I don't drive Ford products anymore, especially after my PowerShift POS Focus.

Agreed this interior looks great. A shame the facelifted Focus isn't getting this.

That one piece screen looks identical to the Kia K8 and similar to Hyundai Ioniq 5 but nothing like th Mercedes.

I don't understand why China is getting all of these interior improvements but not the US? I know VW likes to give the US its crappiest vehicles. Maybe VW's partnership with Ford required that Ford do the same.

i dislike the long glass screens. I prefer something more traditional looking dashboard and analogue gauges.
- for example, the 2020 Mazda6 interior is perfect.
- or you know...a 1967-69 Mercury Cougar XR7 dashboard! ( Google Image a photo of that if you do not know...)

This looks very nice for what is a small and supposed to be an economic car. I prefer more traditional gauge cluster even if it is all screen. The outside design here is just really bad.
