How would you like to get a Ford Focus that has been developed by a team of dedicated rally professionals including the KEN BLOCK?? Well, you do not have to wait no more, because, there is one, revealed yesterday by Ford ( Feb, 3rd 2015). It will feature an all-wheel-drive system with torque vectoring, and will develop up to 330 bhp.

There were many rumors about it. All we know is, that the new Focus RS will be powered by a 4-cylinder 2,3L turbocharged EcoBoost engine, the same one on the Mustang, but with a Turbocharger, and minor development. The engine is said to produce up to 330 bhp and 433 Nm of torque. Power will be transmitted to all the wheels, with possibility of automatic adjustment, with the help of torque vectoring, power can be sent to all wheels, or in times, 70 percent of it, can go the rear wheels, via a six-speed manual transmission. Not only that, but the driver can chose which wheel to brake. A bit of rally and F1 technology. The new Focus RS can now have better cornering, avoiding understeer, it has now a more controlled drift, and who better can manage drift than Mr Ken Block himself??

Ford equipped the Focus with an electronic power steering, that comes now as a standard, stiffer springs for the suspension, sway bars, and 19-inch wheels, that come wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sport. In the inside, the car was fitted with Recaro seats, and a flat bottom steering wheel.

Improvement were not limited to the engine. In the front, the Focus RS has an angrier front bumper, with larger ar intakes, a reworked grille, and big front intercooler. Way back to the rear, it has a big large spoiler, and a new diffuser, to which are joined a twin tailpipe exhaust system.

There is no price tag on it yet. We have to wait until March. This Focus RS will be produced in Germany, sold in the hole world. Shipment to the North America and Asia continents will be later in 2016. It will be competing against, the Mitsubishi EVO, the 1 series hatch, yet, Ford needs to get more power to catch the world most powerful duo, the Audi RS 3, and the AMG 45 A class.

  1. […] Ford Focus RS is impressive as is it, with enough power and a tough character, playful, and not expensive to buy. […]
