Ford Previews Limited Edition 2018 Focus RS
As the current-generation Ford Focus RS comes to the end of its production run, Ford announced they are producing 1,500 limited-edition vehicles for the 2018 model year. This limited-edition Focus RS features a number of highly-requested features from fans, in addition to unique interior and exterior styling.
The 2018 Ford Focus RS limited-edition can be ordered in either a new Race Red or signature Nitrous Blue color, accented by a gloss black roof, mirror caps and rear roof spoiler. The spoiler features blue RS logos on the side wings, and the standard black 19-inch alloy wheels come with blue RS center caps.
The door handles, handbrake lever and turbo boost gauge are all wrapped in a carbon fiber skin. Limited-edition models come with equipment from the RS2 Package, including black leather-trimmed RECARO seats with Miko-Dinamica suede microfiber inserts, a heated steering wheel and voice-activated navigation system.
For better performance on the track, Ford added a standard mechanical limited-slip differential for the front axle that helps to better control the torque from the powerful 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine. This significant upgrade allows the Focus RS to carry more speed through corners and accelerate out of corners faster when driving on the track.
“Our new limited-edition Focus RS represents accessible performance at its finest,” said Jamal Hameedi, chief engineer at Ford Performance. “Improving on the thrilling driving dynamics of the Focus RS is no small task – but out Ford Performance engineers have delivered a drivetrain capable of wringing every drop of performance from the engine.”
