In the world of high performance automobiles, many have come to define the generations that they were built and driven in. Throughout the history of the Ford Focus RS model, it has been synonymous with fast times and high return on investment for whoever is brave enough to step behind the wheel and unleash its incredible, long-lasting power. The last iteration of the Focus RS is set to return later this fall for the 2018 model year, and it will be available in limited edition right here in Edmonton AB!
In preparation of the 2018 Ford Focus RS release, our Sherwood Ford team will be taking you through all its essential specs and features; come join us as we take a look at what this legendary sports car will bring to the table for you on the open road!
Harnessed by a Quaife limited slip differential, the 2018 Focus RS is able to churn out up to 350 horsepower out of its 2.3-litre EcoBoost® Inline 4 engine. Add that onto Dynamic Torque Vectoring and Torque Vectoring Control, and you've got the very definition of a "hot hatch."
Stepping inside, the 2018 Focus RS also brings some great tech advancement to the table. Turbo Boost Gauges and a voice-activated navigation system dominate its interior, allowing you to stay connected both to your drive and what's happening around you on the open road.
Inside and out, it's clear that the Focus RS has your ultimate comfort in mind even as you take on the pavement. Suede microfiber inserts accent classy leather-trimmed seating, and a heated steering wheel and exterior mirrors ensure that you'll be able to handle any elements thrown your way.
Listed above isn't all that the Focus RS has to offer; Ford Performance All-Wheel Drive monitors torque output to all axles wherever you are on the road, sensing shifts in drive quality up to 100 times per second. If you're looking for a bit more punch out of the Focus RS and its adrenaline-fueled drivetrain, Focus RS Drive Modes allow you to shift into drift mode or launch control should you need more excitement off the line. In addition, 19-inch premium alloy wheels help to keep you under control wherever your travels take you.
The Focus RS will be available for the 2018 model year in very limited quantities; only about 500 will be released to the Canadian market. We are anticipating seeing it here at Sherwood Ford, however, and if you're interested in getting a shot at the last version of this North American icon, feel free to contact our team! We can help you with anything you'd like to know about the model and get you behind the wheel once it arrives on our lot later this year. Stop in and see us today!
