The Focus will never be AWD. Even top-of-the-line RS500's were still only FWD. As for pricing, I would have to imagine that in order for it to be marketable that it can't top $36k.

I think that Ford would do good to make an attempt to gauge marketability in the states, even if it was a one-year run and possibly took a loss. Maybe a limited run of 500? Idk. But they aren't going to have an idea of what us Mericans will open our wallets for if they don't at least give it a shot.

Never know, we might surprise them

Edit: In all honesty, even though I am die-hard Focus loverboy, I see the future RS being a Fiesta. I think that they would probably due better thanks to the Ken Block fanboys...
