The Focus RS is on sale now only from FordStores such as our Dunton and Rayleigh dealerships. We have specially trained staff and larger showroom facilities needed to host Ford Performance models.
hot on the wheels of recent reveals for the Focus ST, the Ford GT, the
Shelby® GT350R Mustang and the F-150 Raptor, Ford unveiled the Focus RS at a special event in Cologne, Germany on 3rd February 2015. The preview took place at Ford's European HQ, where the RS badge made its first appearance in 1967.
The third-generation Focus RS will be the 30th RS model to be manufactured by Ford and the first to go on sale all around the world. It is one of over a dozen new Ford Performance vehicles scheduled to be launched between now and 2020.
The design and styling of the Focus RS speaks for itself, while a series of advanced performance technologies, including All-Wheel Drive, Launch Control, selectable Drive Modes delivers some impressive statistics…
Advanced 2.3-litre EcoBoost Engine Technology
The 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine’s revolutionary technology incorporates direct fuel injection, twin independent variable camshaft timing and a twin-scroll turbocharger. Tuned and calibrated specifically for the Focus RS, the result is: maximum power of 350 PS and maximum torque of 440 Nm (470 Nm overboost). Excellent low-end responsiveness is matched by powerful mid-range pull and the free-revving top-end is set to a maximum limit of 6,800 rpm.
All of this adds up to 0-62mph in just 4.7 seconds and an absolutely massive grin on your face!
In the Focus RS, you’re surrounded by smart technologies.
Every one of them has a dedicated role, but all have a single purpose: to enable you to enjoy your car’s capabilities to the full.
Ford Performance all-wheel-drive (AWD) with Dynamic Torque Vectoring Control delivers over 1G of lateral acceleration, plus exceptional grip and ultra-precise handling when you’re powering through corners. The system employs twin electronically controlled clutch packs to help balance engine torque between the rear wheels to suit the road surface and driving conditions. And this intelligent technology also enables you to enjoy controlled oversteer drifts on track days.
A range of sophisticated systems and features combine to ensure that the transmission and engine provide maximum acceleration through the gears. With a Performance Shift Light, you can also see the optimum upshift point for every gear you select. And if the engine is close to hitting the limit of 6,800 rpm, the light will start flashing to warn you.
Ford SYNC lets you control your music and make and receive calls on your mobile, using simple, direct voice commands. You can also use this voice control to play songs from a USB or MP3/iPod® too, or when you’re streaming music from a Bluetooth®-compatible phone. And the system will even read your incoming texts aloud.
The Bi-Xenon headlamps of a Focus RS aren’t just striking; they’re smart. That’s because they precisely follow the road as you turn the wheel, giving you outstanding visibility. They’re also able to adjust the headlamps’ lighting pattern, depending on your speed, the environment and the conditions. Seven different modes include specific settings for when you’re driving on town roads, country lanes, motorways or in adverse weather
Select Launch Control, engage first gear, apply full throttle and then release the clutch. Advanced technologies instantly configure the chassis and powertrain to deliver the fastest acceleration from a standing start. Whatever the track conditions, torque is distributed through the AWD system. This maintains maximum engine power (using the turbo overboost), manages the traction control system and sets the dampers to maximum grip.
There will only be 50 examples of the Ford Focus RS Heritage Edition built for the UK, with deep orange paint, more power and a Quaife limited-slip diff.
The New Heritage Focus RS will be priced at £39,985, with just 50 being built and sold in right-hand drive. They will be the last UK bound examples of the hottest Focus before production stops in Saarlouis, Germany.
As well as the striking paintwork, the Heritage Edition benefits from grey brake callipers sat behind black alloys, with contrasting black door mirrors and a black rear spoiler. Inside, part-leather Recaro seats, a sunroof, a heated steering wheel and privacy glass are the kit highlights.
Introducing the Ford Focus RS Edition; it has been designed and engineered by the Ford Performance team to more fully exploit the same 350PS 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine that powers the standard Focus RS.
They have done this by seamlessly integrating a Quaife® mechanical limited slip differential onto the car's front axle, providing a better distribution of torque to each wheel, and thereby improving the already class-leading traction from the Focus RS.
The Focus RS Edition delivers unique details for the signature Nitrous Blue exterior, including matte black roof and mirror caps. The rear roof spoiler also features a matte black finish, with blue RS logos on the spoiler side wings. Other standard equipment:
|Black cast 19-inch alloy wheels with RS centre caps||Privacy glass|
