2016 Ford Focus RS Packs 315 Horsepower In A Turbo 2.3L

Detroit, Michigan – Ford Motor Company announced Tuesday that the new 2016 Ford Focus RS will be powered by a 2.3 Liter turbocharged 4-cylinder, have a manual transmission, and all-wheel drive. This brutal combination is bound to make hot-hatch buffs tight in the pants. The price to play though is probably going to hold back some of the posers who can’t afford the cost. No firm pricing was announced, but somewhere between $30,000 -$35,000 is the expected base MSRP of the new car. This puts it rightly so in the midst of the outgoing Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution and the ever-powerful Subaru STI.

Those who doubt whether the Ford Focus could warrant the price tag have clearly been in the dark over the success in Europe that the Focus RS has had there for years. Ford has claimed that the car just wasn’t right for the US market in the past despite fans raving for it. Now that Ford dipped their toes in the water with the Ford Focus ST, they have seen that turbocharged hatchbacks are exactly what their fans want.

Ford will still be selling the ST model, which will continue to be a front-wheel drive turbo 2.0L, to keep it differentiated from the faster and more nimble RS model. It will ultimately be up to the fans to decide if $10,000 more dollars are worth the performance gains and potential of the RS model.

A similar sized turbo 4-cylinder currently powers the Ecoboost Mustang, which is capable of hitting the high 11-second quarter mile times with an ECM tune and some drag slicks. It would be expected that the Focus RS should be able to secure quarter mile times in the low 12’s after a similar ECM tune and a proper launch at the strip. Turbochargers and direct-injected 4-cylinder engines are proving one of the favorite power plants these days from the aftermarket tuning scene, and this 2.3L will likely earn all kinds of credibility for the Focus and for Ford.
