Ford has already gone official with the new Focus RS sports car that will be coming to the States for the first time as a 2016 model. The Focus RS has been available in Europe for a long time, leaving Ford fans in the US jealous. The Focus RS has made its North American debut at the New York International Auto Show and this marks the first time that the RS has been on American soil.
The hot hatch uses a 2.3L EcoBoost engine that produces over 315 hp that goes to the ground via an all-wheel drive system. For the drivers out there that like to get sideways, Ford has included a special Drift Mode in the car to make it easier to get sideways. Ford also has a launch control built-in that will allow the driver to launch better at the track.
The 2016 Focus RS also has the best braking system ever used on the Focus RS with large Brembo calipers on the front of the car. One of the key facts that we still don’t know about the Focus RS is how much it will cost. My money says this car will be in the high $30,000 range.
