Less friction in a FWD vehicles drivetrain compared to RWD resulting in better fuel economy. Show me a RWD vehicle that gets close to 40MPG. Need you be remind that all automakers must have a fleet average of 54.5MPG by 2025.

Just for clarification, the Focus ST doesn't has a true electronic limited slip. It has the "torque vectoring system" which has an open differential and uses the ESC to apply brake pressure the wheel losing traction. It's basically the next best thing but not the real deal.
