Great news from Ford! It seems that this brand has been working on a new 2018 Focus RS which will of course be performance oriented. This model belongs to a special series of vehicles produced in limited 1,500 units in North America. It will undergo significant upgrades and improvements, still remaining the typical representative of this world-known brand.
The new 2018 Ford Focus RS is coming as an upgraded and more powerful model. This new, limited edition will be available in two colors – Nitrous Blue and Race Red. Resembling a lot the standard RS models, the new Focus RS will come with a lot of new standard equipment. When it comes to material, Ford will be using mostly carbon fiber which can be found, for example, on the door handles. It will also be equipped with 19-inch alloy wheels and we have noticed the glossy and modern black roof, mirror caps and the rear roof spoiler. In the front end, you can’t but notice a large, trapezoidal grille, headlights and fog lights. Looking at its profile, it seems that this 2018 RS has a typical RS style.
As its name suggests, everything inside the 2018 Ford Focus RS is created for the race fans. There are black leather Ricaro heated seats, heated mirrors, a heated flat-bottomed steering-wheel and others. There is also an instrument cluster with a central console and an 8-inch touch screen with all the important information, options and measures. Only the high-quality materials will be found inside this limited vehicle. Carbon fiber can be found on a handbrake and door handles. The 2018 Focus RS doesn’t lack technological features. You can expect the audio system, satellite navigation, climate control system, voice commands and all sorts of connectivity which the modern-day customer needs.
The fans of the fast ride and speed racing are probably being most interested in what the new 2018 Ford Focus is hiding under its hood. A real treat for them is a 2.3-litre EcoBoost turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Such an engine could provide 350 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. It has been said that this racer hits 0-62 mph in 4.7 seconds while the estimated top speed will be 165 mph. The 2018 Ford Focus RS will be based on the all-wheel-drive system and it will come with a six-speed manual transmission.
