Will borrow the Mustang’s EcoBoost engine and make 300-330 horsepower.
Following plenty of speculation and a few renderings we showed you earlier this year, we are pleased topresent the 2016 Ford Focus RS, seen here as it undergoes testing under a heavylayer of camouflage and with ST badging. The line-topping, performance-geared Focus is expected topremiere in late 2014 or early 2015, featuring the Mustang’s 2.3-liter EcoBoostturbo four-pot engine and a staggering amount of horsepower, probably somewherearound the 300-330 mark.
Setting it apart from thelesser (but still great) Focus ST, this prototype features wide-set exhaustoutlets and massive 19-inch multi-spoke wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sporttires, in addition to large brake calipers and a huge front grille. Accordingto some rumors, the RS will also feature all-wheel drive. So far, Ford has notconfirmed whether this model will make it to US shores, but we’re willing tobet it’ll be highly ranked on our wish-list once it is finally introduced.
