There are a number of new features that come standard with the 2018 Focus RS Limited Edition, but the most impressive would have to be the Quaife limited-slip differential for the front axle which, when added to the Focus’s already stellar AWD, provides exceptional grip for improved handling on all terrain. Dynamic Torque Vectoring, in conjunction with Torque Vectoring Control, as well as Ford’s first ever drift mode, means you will be able to handle whatever the road, or track, throws your way with ease.
This, in addition to the fact that Ford is only producing 1,500 units of this model for North America, means these handsome, high performance versions of the Focus will be very hard to come by. Whether you are a longtime Ford performance fan or just enjoy sporty cars with incredible handling, the Ford Focus RS Limited Edition in Edmonton is just that, limited, so come down to Team Ford as this is a ride you don’t want to miss out on.
Not only is this track ready 2018 model available with the new Race Red colour, which was previously not available on the Focus RS, it also features new design cues like a Piano Black painted roof, side mirrors, and a rear spoiler with blue RS logos. Also exclusive to the limited RS are premium, 19-inch painted forged aluminum wheels with blue RS center cap logos, shrouded in Michelin Super Sport Summer Tires. This is all on top of the Focus’s unique blend of sweeping curves and bold, geometric lines. Red isn’t your colour? Try Ford’s daring Nitrous Blue. Either way, you are guaranteed to stand out thanks to the RS’s striking design and power.
Looking at the interior, everything to love about the Focus RS2 option set now comes as standard equipment on the RS Limited Edition; the racing inspired Recaro seats are decked out with Miko-Dinamica suede inserts and leather trim, and the shifter, e-brake handle, and gauges are surrounded by carbon fiber. Heated side mirrors and a heated steering wheel offer a luxurious touch during Canadian winter. The Focus RS LE isn’t just cozy in winter — the dual zone air conditioning helps you and your passenger decide what temperature works best when the weather is warmer, and the power moonroof with vent allows the option of letting in all that warm sunshine, or maybe just a bit of fresh air while you explore the capabilities of the 4.7 second 0-60mph accelerating engine (on the track, of course).
Technology and Safety
The Focus family of cars has always gone the extra mile to marry performance with practicality, and the Limited Edition RS is no different. Multiple airbags, seatbelt pretensioners, traction control, electronic stability, and a braking assist system all work together toward a safe ride.
In addition to the Focus’s safety features, a responsive and innovative Sync® 3 voice-activated navigation system delivers unparalleled connectivity. Play your music, make phone calls, even adjust the temperature without taking your eyes off the road.
