2016 Ford Focus RS – Dallas, Texas
The highly anticipated 2016 Ford Focus RS hot hatch is rolling off the assembly line in Germany, and has now made its way to your local Dallas Ford dealer. The 350 hp Focus RS joins the popular and critically acclaimed Ford Focus ST and Fiesta ST performance hatchbacks, rounding out the Ford performance car lineup.
Using a specially engineered version of the 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine the Focus RS will hit 60 mph in just 4.7 seconds, making it the fastest Ford RS model ever. An innovative all-wheel drive system with Dynamic Torque Vectoring helps drivers put the power down, and brings a new level of handling and grip.
For the first time, the 2016 Focus RS will get selectable drive modes which adjust shock tuning, stability control, engine and steering response and exhaust sound. Drivers will be able to choose Normal, Sport, Track or a special Drift mode that allows for easier controlled oversteer drifts under track conditions.
Even the braking system is advanced on the Focus RS, with dedicated ducts on the front fascia and twin “jet tunnels” in the underbody with airflow guides on the lower suspension arms to help cool the massive brakes. The front Brembo disc brakes feature aerodynamically optimized ventilation fins for better cooling as well.
The Focus RS joins the all-new EcoBoost powered F-150 Raptor and Ford GT supercar as the latest Ford performance vehicles. Along with the recently introduced Shelby GT350 and GT350R, Ford will have more dedicated performance vehicles than nearly any other automaker.
