1992 - 1993 Capri XR2

Ford had already used the 'GT', 'Ghia', 'RS' and 'S' badge's on a variety of models. The 'XR' badge first appeared in 1967 on the Mercury Cougar which offered a 'XR7' premium "sport-packaged" model, but no-one seems to know it's real origin. There is a belief that the 'XR' was a Ford acronym for either eXpeRimental, or it stood for Cross (X) Rally, but neither explanation can be verified.

Since 1967 a whole series of XR's have been produced- XR2 (Capri), XR3 (Escort), XR4 (Merkur), XR5 (Topaz), XR7 (Cougar), XR6 and XR8 (versions of the Ford Sierra built in South Africa). There has never been an 'XR1' manufactured by Ford.
