Sierra XR4 This car was indeed the only XR Ford Sierra produced in the Western Hemisphere. (Ford of Brazil produced a version of the Escort XR3). Seen from outside this car looked very much like the European Ford Sierra XR4i. Its interior was also very similar to its Belgian built counterpart, with the exception of the steering wheel, which it shared with the Sierra Ghia. It was powered by the 2.3-litre Pinto/Lima engine with a 2 barrel carburettor, which developed 120 HP.
