Focus RS Confirmed

Autocar UK released an article confirming the next RS is happening, and will be sold in North America as well.



Engine will be the 2.3 EcoBoost with 330hp with higher then the previous RS 324 ft.lb tq, are numbers been mentioned.
And with a mechanical diff, and no AWD, and it is a 5 door.

Expected sometime in 2016

I tried to share Autocar's pdf file here but the site will not accept the file.

Good and bad! Good that Ford is going to build it and sell it here. Bad that it will only be a 4 door! I wish they would give the consumer a choice instead of building what they want to sell.

4 door.. sigh...

Thats why I bought a used 2010 2 door over a new focus. I hate 4 doors.

I could see the normal focus all being 4 doors but the ST and RS should be 2 doors.

People should be happy if they even bring it over here,2 or 4 door. I wonder how many current MK3 owners would step up to the premium price point which puts it into a range of some competitive vehicles anyway.

Tooling a new Focus body just for the RS is not realistic.

A 5 door hatch (or wagon) is consistent with the image of the ST (a balanced drivers car and not an uber-performance car).

The Evo and STi have more than 2 doors, no?

There will be a lot of unhappy ST owners.

So, far this thread is about as informative as the other several about the RS coming out. Wake me when there's some new info in print instead of hear say. Zzzzzzzzzzz
