Several patent photos depicting the Ford Escort have surfaced the web, ahead of the car's 2014 market release in China.

Ford surprised a lot of people back in April at Auto Shanghai when they resurrected the "Escort" moniker with a concept designed as a preview for a C-segment car which they plan on selling in China. Today we have several patent photos showing the production version which will be out in 2014 featuring a familiar Ford design with the generous front grille and Focus-like taillights.

China might not be the only market where Ford plans on selling the Escort as they acknowledge such a model could "work in other places". The vehicle would be suitable for markets where small sedans (like the Dacia Logan) are popular, specifically in Eastern European countries.
