I'm pretty sure that's been confirmed for more than a month now... The main page of focusfanatics.com has even had the article up for a while now! Am I missing something in the article you posted?
That's not even new news either. That was stated during the reveal in Cologne that the RS would have a way of performing controlled oversteer drifts on the track thanks to it's Ford Performance AWD system.Old news. The new news is it will have a drift mode. That's right. A drift mode.
Given they described a mode for which could allow for controlled oversteer drifts on the track from the press release and the live reveal I'm going to guess your complaint was that they didn't go and name it drift mode when it was all but explicitly stated as such.But it was not stated as "drift mode".
From the initial press release.The AWD system has been tuned to deliver exceptional grip – with lateral acceleration exceeding 1 g – and class-leading cornering speed and acceleration out of a bend. With neutral and adjustable limit handling, and the ability to achieve controlled oversteer drifts at the track; the Focus RS delivers the ultimate fun-to-drive experience
From the Geneva release.The Drift Mode features a specially developed calibration for the AWD system which modifies the torque distribution to help the driver achieve controlled oversteer drifts under circuit conditions.
Have you never heard of being able to put two and two together?^^^You're wrong, being able to drift and having a mode that specifically assists in drifting are not the same thing
