If the brakes, wheels, tires or more are upgraded over the ST it could be more added to the window sticker but it would be nice to keep as many common parts with the ST as possible to keep costs down.

Here's some recent articles on the hopefully coming to America Focus RS.
It will NOT be built in the US.
