Ford Performance has been unstoppable recently and one of the best examples of this is the all-new 2016 Ford Focus RS. The Focus RS is the hot hatch we’ve all been hoping to see for years now, but now it’s finally here. Interested in seeing what a Ford Performance hot hatch can do? Stop by Sanders Ford to see the 2016 Ford Focus RS in Jacksonville NC.
So what is different about the 2016 Ford Focus RS compared to the regular Ford Focus? Quite a bit, actually. Just taking a look at how the two appear, the Ford Focus RS is sportier and sits a bit more aggressive than the regular Focus. There are also some design elements that the Focus RS has that aren’t found on the regular Focus, including its performance spoiler and some unique color choices.
Visual upgrades are not the only new addition in the Focus RS model. The 2016 Focus RS is packing a lot of power with its standard 2.3L EcoBoost I-4 engine, which offers 350 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. For comparison’s sake, those specs are higher than both the Mustang V6 and Mustang EcoBoost, and are only topped once you pick up the Mustang GT or a higher trim. The power of the Focus RS’ engine is perfectly paired with an advanced all-wheel drive system and 6-speed manual transmission.
There is even a lot to love about the interior of the Ford Focus RS. You’ll get a set of RECARO partial leather seats, which are decorated with the Focus RS logo, at the standard level, as well as an audio system with 10-speakers from Sony. Would you rather have full-leather seats that are also heated? Not a problem!
