2018 Ford Focus RS Colour Options
In addition to the traditional Nitrous Blue exterior colour, the 2018 Ford Focus RS Limited Edition will also be available in Race Red. Both exterior options will have black accents, including 19-inch wheels with blue RS center caps. On the inside, the 2018 Focus RS will have plenty of carbon fiber accents, black leather seating and plenty of returning internal technology.
Standard Performance Enhancements
Each model of the 2018 Ford Focus RS will come standard with a front axle mechanical Quaife® limited-slip differential. This new enhancement will enable even more confident track cornering and post-corner acceleration by precisely controlling the torque going to each front wheel. This system complements standard Performance All-Wheel Drive and Dynamic Torque Vectoring.
