This doesn't say anything about the RS coming to the US... just that Ford has given the green-light for the next-generation RS to be built. I still don't think we'll be getting it here in the US, especially since we'll have the ST... I don't think they love us enough here.

You forgot that Ford said that the next Focus will be delivered Global? so whatever is made in UK is coming here as-well or we will get something similar like maybe with an Svt badge since RS and SVT teamed together for the next project. I think something is in the air.

Same car =/= same trims offered.

I get your point though, and didn't really think about it.

But, they made a wagon variant and we don't get that, at least not yet. No reason to think a 350hp Focus will sell well here, it's a very niche market and the price would be well north of $30k. Plus, it's still FWD... who wants to spend over 30 grand on a FWD 2-door when you could spend that on an AWD 4-door STi or EVO.

We will see though.

EDIT: and our "something similar" is already happening... we ARE getting the ST, but I doubt we'll get the RS.

Ford needs to build a focus that competes with a wrx. The ST is getting there though :]

The RevoKnuckle suspension acts similar to an Awd system and it can handle well over 500 fwhp without understeer, but yea well C, I'm going to hold my breath though and Hold on to my SVTF, not going to buy and RS just yet.....
