2016 Ford Focus RS

Here is a quick overview:
The 2016 Ford Focus RS is a high-performance road car the likes of which has never been offered by Ford in the United States. From the tires up, Ford engineers composed a masterpiece of moving pieces – each working in precise synchrony with the others. The result is more than the sum of its parts, as Focus RS is a machine intended to elicit pure exhilaration behind the wheel.

Focus RS is equipped with a unique 2.3-liter EcoBoost® engine producing an astounding 350 horsepower and 350 lb.-ft. of torque, mated to a six-speed manual transmission. Featuring new Ford Performance All-Wheel Drive with Dynamic Torque Vectoring, Focus RS offers the next level in handling capability.

This unique driveline can route up to 70 percent engine power to the rear wheels, and of that, 100 percent to either side depending on the driving situation. Two-mode dampers combined with expertly tuned electric power-assisted steering and a rigid front knuckle suspension design give 2016 Ford Focus RS outstanding cornering stability, turn-in, handling and chassis responsiveness – with virtually no understeer and lateral acceleration that achieves 1.0 g. The car’s unique drift mode feature enables controlled oversteer in track conditions.

Styling includes an aggressive front-end appearance with a bold upper trapezoidal grille above a deep splitter incorporating the largest possible openings for engine cooling. The car’s wide, muscular stance is emphasized by brake cooling ducts and vertically mounted fog lamps.

The high-performance character of Focus RS is reflected inside, with heavily bolstered RECARO® sport seats, a chunky, flat-bottom steering wheel with soft-feel leather-covered rim, metal pedals and unique instrument graphics. Throughout the cabin, the distinctive blue 2016 Ford Focus RS theme includes stitching on the seats, steering wheel, floor mats and interior trim, as well as RS logo on gear shifter, seats, steering wheel and door scuff plates.
