The Ford Granada was a car produced by the Ford Motor Company from 1972 to 1985 (to 1994 in the UK). The third generation Granada was sold as the Scorpio in Europe and as the Granada in the UK.

The first generation appeared in March 1972 with saloon and estate versions, some lower-end models were called the Consul.

The second generation launched in September 1977 with the same saloon and estate models and got a facelift in 1981.

The third generation arrived in May 1985 with a hatchback version only, it was sold as the Scorpio in Europe and as the Granada in the UK, the Scorpio name was used as a trim level on higher-end versions in the UK. A saloon version was added in early 1990 and an estate was added in early 1992, alongside a small facelift.

In late 1994, the Granada name was replaced by the Scorpio for all markets and was sold as a saloon or an estate, no hatchback was offered. However, the styling often divided opinion which meant it didn’t sell too well and in 1998, the model was axed without a replacement.
