2018 Ford Focus RS engine and drivetrain features 

It’s almost uncanny, really, how the 2018 Focus RS can inspire so much awe and excitement every time you press the gas. It’s able to do this because of an ultra-powerful 2.3-litre EcoBoost® Inline-4 engine under the hood, which can produce upwards of 350 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque.
