2017 Ford Focus RS – A New Era for Fast Fords. 2017 Ford Focus RS – Drive, Interior and Exterior.
Among models driving demand are the all-new Focus RS, the first of which has just rolled off the production line in Saarlouis, Germany; the Ford Mustang sports car for which Ford has now taken more than 13,000 orders in Europe; and the Focus ST and Fiesta ST hot hatch models.
With the all-new Ford GT still to come, Ford offers the most comprehensive range of performance models from compact hatchbacks to high‑performance supercars.
The Focus RS is one of 12 new performance vehicles Ford will bring to customers globally through 2020. Developed by a team of Ford Performance engineers in Europe and the U.S., the model is powered by a specially engineered version of Ford’s new 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine delivering maximum power of 350 PS, and will sprint from 0-100 km/h (0‑62 mph) in 4.7 seconds, making the high-performance hatchback the fastest accelerating Ford RS model ever.
The Focus RS pioneers innovative Ford Performance All Wheel Drive with Dynamic Torque Vectoring for a new level of handling, grip and cornering speed. Selectable Drive Modes – including an industry-first Drift Mode that allows controlled oversteer drifts – and Launch Control feature on the RS model for the first time.
