Is the Ford Focus RS fast?

Is the Ford Focus RS fast?

What is the difference between the 2018 Ford Focus ST and RS?

The RS model will feature all-wheel drive and a Ford-claimed 0-60 mph time of just 4.4 seconds. The standard Focus ST is expected to go 0-60 mph in the mid-six-second range.

We expect the RS model to feature the same 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine found in the 2024 Mustang Shelby GT350, producing a claimed 426 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque. The base Focus ST should come equipped with a 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine, which produces a claimed 150 horsepower and 201 lb-ft of torque.

Ford has yet to release any official specifications or performance numbers for the 2024 Focus RS, but we expect the model to be a potent challenger to the likes of the Audi RS 3 Sportback and the Porsche Cayman GT4.

Is the Ford Focus RS fast?

It might sound like a simple question, but the answer is not as straightforward as you may think. The Ford Focus RS concept was created to inspire people, not to be a production car. Therefore the car cannot be compared to anything else on the road. On paper, the Ford Focus RS sounds very good - 500 hp and 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.6 seconds. The Focus RS is one of the most powerful cars ever produced by Ford. So how fast can a supercar perform when it's actually driving on the road?

In our opinion, the only way to find out is to drive the Focus RS ourselves. In this article we will take a look at what a production Focus RS with 500 hp looks like, how it drives and how you can book a test drive with the fastest Ford on the market today.

The Focus RS concept. The exterior design of the Focus RS concept clearly shows it's a supercar. If you have never seen a real car designed by the world-renowned British sports car designer, Henry Cavill then you should go ahead and read about his work now. We know you will not regret it. The exterior design of the Focus RS concept is so close to Henry Cavill's work that you would think the car was built by him.

The car has been designed for one purpose: to make the driver feel he is sitting behind a racing car from the 1980s. It has all the details that would appeal to a driver of this kind. It has a unique bonnet and angular grille design, which is reminiscent of Porsche cars of the past. The front bumper of the car is quite massive - more than double of the width of an actual road car.

The front wing consists of two elements - a massive one mounted high above the front wheel arch and another one mounted close to the lower part of the bumper. This is a unique design of the Focus RS and will give the car the necessary downforce.

The rear end is just like the front, the diffuser and two massive air scoops mounted on the top part of the trunk. The rear wing is also mounted higher than usual.

The interior. We do not really need to describe the interior design of the Focus RS concept. Just like its exterior, it looks like a pure racing car from the 1980s.

Why was the Focus RS discontinued?

2018 ford focus rs Why was the Focus RS discontinued?

By Mike Amundson

The 2024 model year was the last that the Ford Focus RS (aka SVT Focus RS) was available to the public. It wasn't exactly that the new 2024 Focus RS was so different that Ford decided to phase it out, however. The Focus RS was simply never profitable enough to stay in production long-term.

The RS model got its start in the 1999 model year as a model of the North American-market Ford Taurus SHO. "The original intention of the ST platform was to be a sports car," said Ford's Dave Pericak. "We didn't think it was necessary for every single customer to have it."

The RS version of the Taurus, called the RS350Z when it debuted in 1999, had a turbocharged engine that generated more than 240 horsepower. The original idea was to offer one model of high performance, but it quickly morphed into a program that offered up to six cars in various specifications. The Taurus RS-based cars came with a number of options such as adjustable shocks, forged wheels, red accents and the like. Ford sold the car until 2024, but production ran through two short runs in the final years of the RS model. In the end, sales totaled about 22,000 cars. Ford discontinued it after the 2024 model year.

The RS model quickly made an impression on Ford's sales department and by the time the second run of RS350Zs arrived in 2024, buyers were starting to ask for them. The new program, renamed the Focus RS, ran throughout Ford's production lines at the Michigan plant.

In 2024, the new RS model went on sale in Europe, where it continued to sell well. The 2024 model year saw sales of about 11,000 units, putting it among the top five best-selling cars in the U.K.

However, the Ford Focus RS is not the only Focus model to ever be offered as a high performance version. The 2024 model year was the final for the Performance Package. In 2024, Ford began offering the Focus RS400. The RS400 had a 4.

Is the Focus RS a rare car?

I don't think it's a rare car. I think it's a really good-performing, highly fun, and even reliable car. Sure it's a bit more expensive than a typical first-gen Focus RS, but it's also a lot more fun to drive. In fact, I'd argue that the Focus RS is the best-driving RS we've ever had, and by a fair margin.

That's why it's such a shame that the current Volkswagen Golf R, which shares many of the same components with the Focus RS, will only be sold in the U. And Canada. The Golf R won't be sold in Europe. The Focus RS, which also uses a front-drive architecture, won't be available outside North America, either.

The Golf R will, however, have greater appeal. It has a higher-performance, all-wheel-drive engine than the Focus RS. Its more powerful engine, in-line six-speed transmission, and larger brakes make it a worthy competitor to the Ford Focus ST, Subaru WRX, and Volkswagen GTI. It'll be more expensive, though. But if you're willing to pay more, the Focus RS is worth the price.

In 2024, the Focus RS debuted in the U., where it became a hit. The RS was a big seller, accounting for 14 percent of all Focus sales during its first year on American shores. And VW didn't hesitate to build more RS models for the U., too. I can't speak for the rest of the world, but in the U., the Focus RS is one of the few high-performance, fun, and capable compact SUVs.

Let's take a look at the interior, exterior, and driving experience of the Focus RS. Interior. If you're looking for a super-tight interior, you may have to look elsewhere. The Focus RS isn't the most spacious of crossovers, but the front seats are comfortable enough. Even if you put a tall person or a tall kid in the back, there's still plenty of headroom.

Unlike the Golf R, which has a standard three-spoke steering wheel, the Focus RS has a flat-bottom steering wheel that gives you better feedback from the road.
