Ford recently released a promo video for the upcoming Ford Focus RS. Gearheads shouldn’t have any trouble watching it. They’ve already know they’re getting the new Focus RS. The people that are really in danger are the ones who won’t suspect how enticing and fun the Focus RS looks as it handily negotiates the harsh curves in a mountain road with ease, almost abandon. It appears…irresistible.
It’s not surprising that a winding mountain road was the chosen venue for exhibiting the new Ford Focus RS. The compact sportster was made for them. In the Ford Focus RS promo video, the Focus seems to literally grab the road with the help of the Dynamic Torque Vectoring. Suspension has been updated this time around and the Focus also has a ride height that’s been lowered to reduce drag.
But you aren’t going to appreciate those handling and suspension features without a strong powertrain to get the Focus up to speed. That’s provided by a 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, good for 316 horsepower. Mountain roads beware.
