The all-new Ford RS 2016 is stirring up excitement everywhere. Get the must-know info on specs, price, features & how you can preview it at FordStore Leicester
Jul 20, 2015
It was unveiled at Geneva Motor Show in March and made its first public driving appearance at Goodwood Festival of Speed. In the space of a few months, the all-new Ford Focus RS has been firmly on the radar of hot hatch enthusiasts everywhere – and with great reason. It is the first Focus to feature all-wheel-drive, boasts over 316bhp and shares the same engine as the 2015 Ford Mustang!
Get the low-down on this formidable driving machine ahead of its early 2016 release; the pre-order waiting list is growing!
When the all-new Ford Focus RS horsepower and torque figures were revealed in late June, they did not disappoint. The 2016 RS packs an awesome 345 horsepower, with 325lb-ft between 2000 and 4500 rpm – dwarfing the engines of the VW and STI hot hatches. What’s its secret? The addition of a 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine; the same one used in the 2015 Ford Mustang.
For die-hard track driving fans, the new Focus RS offers an ‘overboost’ function, allowing a maximum of 347lb-ft of torque for up to 15 seconds. The Ecoboost engine also reaches up to 6800rpm whilst cutting CO2 emissions from the previous RS by 20%. All of this power is converted to satisfying growl from the twin-exhaust.
The six-speed manual transmission and all-wheel-drive systems bring dynamic torque vectoring to a whole new level as well, where up to 70 percent of torque can be delivered to the rear of the car and 100% to the outside rear wheel. Make the most out of this function with the Ford Focus RS’s first ‘drift’ function, where you can experience new heights of Ford driver involvement at the touch of a button.
Ken Block, the world-famous rally driver, had this to say about the ‘drift’ button: "It’s mainly a yaw control. There’s so many electronics on these cars these days to keep the car from doing anything fun that they’re having to put that stuff back in."
See the all-new Ford Focus RS in action in the video below. As Ford claims, the four-wheel-drive and dynamic torque provide: “class-leading corner speed, limit handling and a unique drift capability”.
To give the 2016 Focus RS an authentic look and feel of a track vehicle, it will be available with semi-slick tyres – a first for Ford. Buyers will choose from standard or lightweight 19inch multi-spoke alloy wheels. But this isn’t the only bold new move for the Ford Focus RS. Ken Block has been involved in the car’s development process, resulting in an exaggerated exterior, better aerodynamic downforce, increased brake and powertrain cooling.
Other interior equipment includes:
- Recaro sports seats
- Flat-bottomed, leather steering wheel
- Alloy pedals
- Brembo brakes
- 8.0in colour touchscreen on the dashboard
- Ford Sync2 connectivity system
As for the price you’re certainly getting a good deal. The Ford Focus RS costs just under £30,000 and is available to pre-order now, ahead of its official sale launch in Spring 2016. It will be the 30th Ford RS model since the series began in 1968!
You will be given four choices of colour: Nitrous Blue, Stealth Grey, Absolute Black or Frozen White. However the ‘Liquid Blue’ colour shown in pictures so far has been confirmed as ‘just for show’.
Ford of Europe boss Jim Farley says the new RS "captures the essence" of the brand. "We make great cars that are affordable and that's what defines the RS. Bringing RS back is a high point for us and customers. We don't just want a sustainable business for Europe, we want a vibrant business. This is a part of that journey."
It’s been made clear that the all-new For Focus RS is to have no gimmicks, exaggerations or extras that don’t serve a purpose. This sets the 2016 RS above the typical boy-racer cars out there and gives it a definite feel of class. But who better to explain this than Ernesto Rupar, Ford Europe’s supervisor exterior designer:
“It was felt the old RS’s look would be over the top for this new car. Everything you see on the new RS has been added for a purpose; there’s nothing unnecessary.
“We went through around five designs to get to this – one of the designs had air vents on the bonnet, but they had no real purpose so they went…We were looking at the RS3 and its classy style.”
Design features include:
- Huge side air vents on the front bumper
- Aggressive, flared grille
- Visible intercooler
- RS badge-branded rear spoiler
- Two-angled exhaust
