Ford Granada Overview
The Ford Granada is classed as a large executive car and was produced by Ford Europe between 1972 and 1994. The Mark I and II were marketed as the Granada across Europe but the Mark III was only known as the Granada in the UK, it was marketed as the Ford Scorpio elsewhere. The Mark III Granada was a very spacious car with plenty room inside and in the boot. They were a comfortable ride and good cars for motorway driving. These cars were known for reliability issues and they are not the most stylish looking cars. Does this sound anything like your experience of the Ford Granada?
Ford Granada History
The first generation Mark I (1972-77) was designed as a replacement for the Ford Zephyr in the UK and the Ford P7-series in Germany. This was to be the executive car offered by Ford Europe. There was a wide range of available engines for this car and was available as a saloon, estate and coupé. The second generation Mark II (1977-85) was an evolution of the previous version. The engine range was altered slightly, moving from the Essex engines to the Cologne engines, named after the areas in which they were produced.
The third generation Mark III (1985-1994) was only marketed as the Granada in the UK and Ireland. It was known as the Scorpio across continental Europe, with the Scorpio name being used for the luxury version of the UK Granada. This vehicle looked totally different than its predecessors, being rounder in shape. In 1994 the UK and Ireland joined the rest of Europe in using the Scorpio name.
The Ford Granada Mk III had the following engines available: 1.8, 2.0, 2.4, 2.8 and 2.9L petrol engines and a 2.5L turbo diesel. The 2.5L diesel engine was the most economical of the range.
