2018 Ford Focus RS Limited Edition Revealed
To mark the end of the current-generation Ford Focus RS hot hatch, Ford announced they will be building 1,500 limited-edition vehicles for the 2018 model year. This limited-edition Focus RS features a number of commonly requested features, as well as unique interior and exterior styling.
The limited-edition 2018 Ford Focus RS is available in a new Race Red or signature Nitrous Blue color, accented by a new gloss black roof, mirror caps and rear roof spoiler. The spoiler will also feature blue RS logos on the side wings, and the standard 19-inch alloy wheels come with blue RS center caps.
Inside, the door handles, handbrake lever and turbo boost gauge are wrapped in a carbon fiber skin for an extra sporty look. Limited-edition models include equipment from the RS2 Package, such as black leather-trimmed RECARO seats with Miko-Dinamica suede microfiber inserts, a heated steering wheel and voice-activated navigation.
To improve performance, Ford Performance added a standard mechanical limited-slip differential for the front axle that helps to control the torque from the powerful 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine. With this upgrade the Focus RS can carry more speed through corners and accelerate out of corners better when on the track.
“Our new limited-edition Focus RS represents accessible performance at its finest,” said Jamal Hameedi, Ford Performance chief engineer. “Improving on the thrilling driving dynamics of the Focus RS is no small task – but out Ford Performance engineers have delivered a drivetrain capable of wringing every drop of performance from the engine.”
