On Second Thoughts, 2016 Focus RS Will Actually Be AWD

More importantly, it's coming our way.

Withwhat is expected to be an extremely exciting model, the rumors, speculationsand leaked sources surrounding the 2016 Focus RS are endless. Just last month,we reported that the upcoming RS had been finally designated as a front-wheeldrive model, but now, there is another surprising twist in the plot. Accordingto a report in Road & Track, the EcoBoost-equipped, 325-plus-horsepower-producingRS will actually be sending its power to all four wheels.

We also expect an impressive body kit and exhaust to easilydifferentiate the model from its lesser ST siblings. More importantly perhaps,it seems increasingly likely that the Focus RS will make it to Americanshores, albeit in very limited numbers.
