Coming Soon: 2016 Ford Focus RS

Quick Contact

It’ll be another handful of months before the 2016 Ford Focus RS will arrive in our showroom at Gurley Motor Company, but there’s already enough information about it to put together a nice picture.

The 2016 Focus RS is an important car—though it’s Ford’s third, it’s only the automaker’s first to make it to the United States automotive market. That means we’ll finally have our own proper American hot hatch to compete against the likes of the Subaru WRX STI and Volkswagen Golf R.

Under the hood will be a modified version of the new Mustang’s turbocharged 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine delivering “well in excess” of 315 horsepower. Even more interesting is what the automaker calls “Ford Performance AWD,” an advanced all-wheel-drive system that can pre-emptively transfer torque to the outer rear wheel during cornering, virtually eliminating understeer.

Purists will also be happy to know that it will come only with a six-speed manual gearbox. You’ll have to drive that bad boy the way it was meant to be experienced or not drive it at all!
