Earlier this month at the Geneva Motor Show, the all-new Ford Focus RS made its global debut. This high-performance hot hatch is the latest in Ford’s lineup of 12 all-new performance models and features all-wheel drive for a thrilling driving experience.
“The RS line has a proud history of technical breakthroughs that have migrated to mainstream Fords to benefit all of our customers, and the new Focus RS is no exception,” said Raj Nair, Ford Motor Company group vice president, Global Product Development, in a statement. “It’s a great example of our passion for innovation through performance, and creating vehicles that make people’s hearts pound.”
The Focus RS is powered by a 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine that will deliver more than 315 horsepower. It also features the most powerful Ford RS braking system ever. And the Focus RS’ styling will match its performance with a dramatic exterior design with optimized aerodynamics that offers 9% less drag than the previous Focus RS.
This will be the first Ford Focus RS to be sold in North America. Production will begin late this year in Saarlouis, Germany with sales set to begin next year.
