Is this the last year for it? I noticed even though the Focus' in NY are getting the 2.3, the ZX2 is not. So i assume it will not be around in 2004.

now the question is - what (if anything) would they replace it with? i'm hoping nothing... ford doesn't need two inexpensive small cars on their line up.

on second thought, i wonder how the Ka would do in the US?

Ford really needs a car UNDER the Focus, the focus should not try and cover the $10-$20k range, that's just to much for a car. Ford needs the Fiesta as there $10-$15 car and the focus as there $15-20k car. The Ka here be awesome!

As for replacing the ZX2 I think they should, with a focus Coupe!

Don't count the ZX2 out yet, Ford put a new front facia on for 2003. Small coupes sell, so until Ford does come out with the Focus coupe, the ZX2 may still be around.

Ford IS coming out with a car below Focus. It's the EcoSport, which has already gone on sale in Brazil. We'll see it here in the next couple of years.

The ZX2 is a great way to get rid of excess Zetecs in non-gree states. I think it will be around for a while longer for this reason alone.

If it sells well... well you know the story.

ZX2's will be around still. Like said above, FORD doesn't have an entry in the COUPE class of small cars. Alot of people still want a 2 door with a trunk rather than a Hatch. And I would say count on it being around until they Redesign the Focus and add a Coupe Platform to the 3 door hatch, 5 door hatch, wagon and sedan.

Escorts are gone not ZX2's, Ford dropped the Escort moniker from the ZX2 name in late 2001 early 2002. Its now just the ZX2.

But hey don't act like its such a bad thing, the ZX2 MIGHT not satisfy some ppl's tastes for looks, but having basically the same Zetec, and actually being lighter than a ZX3 by a couple hundred and having a better final gear ratio it is still a tit bit quicker stock for stock and takes well to the same mods as any focus.

i was reading a story on this acutally, ford was suppose to put the axe to zx2 in 2003, but it sells to much to toally kill off. So they redesigned the front which looks pretty rad, and they will be around till around 2005 i believe. Its a direct competitor to the cav coupe.
