2018 Focus RS Limited Edition Features and Release Date
You wanted a performance hatchback and Ford has provided. In response to fan requests and demand, Ford has created a limited edition performance Focus RS with previously optional features as standard equipment and exclusive colors and design elements. Dubbed the “hot hatch,” the 2018 Focus RS Limited Edition satisfies the demand for a higher performance RS.
The 2018 Limited Edition Focus RS Features Exclusive, Fan Inspired Firsts
For the 2018 limited edition model, Ford has equipped the Focus RS with a standard mechanical limited slip differential on the front axle and a first ever drift mode as part of its Focus RS drive mode options. The limited-slip differential will allow drivers enhanced delivery of power to the front wheels and the new drift mode will make play time with the RS even more fun.
The Focus RS drift mode is best-suited for track conditions to create a controlled oversteer drift. Drift mode is similar to a performance car’s “track” mode or “race” mode and allows for higher performance from the powertrain. In drift mode, the hot hatch can launch from the start line, racing from 0 to 60 mph in only 4.7 seconds.
