2001 Ford Escort ZX2: Regular Car Reviews
We Review the last of the Ford Escorts: The ZX2. It's not quite a Focus but it is trying to show how far the Escort has come. Made a mistake with today's video. The ZX2 had a 2.0L motor, not 2.4 I'm tired of making these technical errors. I got engine displacement wrong again on the ZX2 video. The reason I make these asinine mistakes is because I speak from memory, in a "Yea, I got this," way. The crazy thing about this video is that my notes clearly say: "-2.0 L, 4-cylinder ZTEC engine, with a factory-rated 130 hp, and a top speed of around 128 mph, if it's post-apocalypse and all the roads are deserted. However, the owner says a friend of his got up to 135 on an empty road in Mexico, although he ran out of fifth gear in the process." And what did my bird-brain do? Combine the "2" in "Two Liter" and the numeral "4" in "Four Cylinder" and barfed out "2.4L" UGH





Turbo 1998 Ford Escort ZX2
I've owned this Ford Escort ZX2 for 9 years now, and I've been modifying it ever since I first bought it. Many parts have been added and removed over the course of these 9 years, because as car enthusiasts, that's what we do. We're constantly improving on our cars, and this is the perfect example of that. I will always improve on this car. Music used: Tevlo feat.
