The 2017 Ford Focus RS – Your Road-Going Weapon
The history of the Ford RS badge is one of crushing performance in a usable everyday package. Heroes like the Sierra Cosworth and Escort Cosworth became legends for their supercar-humbling performance and affordable price tags. But Canada never received these incredible performance bargains – until now.
The new 2017 Ford Focus RS is the pinnacle of performance in the Focus lineup, and is designed solely to excite you in way only six-figures cars could before. Team Ford is extremely excited to offer these incredible hyper-hatches to keen drivers across the Edmonton area. Visit our New Vehicle Inventory and pick yours before they’re all gone!
The Focus RS is all about performance, which is why it comes with Ford’s mega 2.3L EcoBoost engine which produces a whopping 350 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. Routed to all four wheels using an innovative all-wheel drive system, the Focus RS is capable of 0-100km/h in just 4.7 seconds and onwards to a top speed to 266km/h!
In the 2017 Focus RS, the power is in your hands. A slick six-speed manual transmission lets you take full advantage of the copious power, while snug Recaro seats hold you in place. Huge brakes effortlessly haul you down from speed, and the performance-tuned exhaust signals your arrival with a symphony of pops and bangs.
Advanced AWD Traction
The AWD system in the Focus RS is a masterpiece. Unlike most AWD system which only send power rearward if wheel slip is detected, the RS sends maximum power rearward constantly. The result is a more neutral, better balanced chassis. And if you’re feeling especially rambunctious, there’s even a “Drift” mode for you to enjoy Ken Block-style slides.
Unlike the hardcore sports cars which the Focus RS competes with, its shockingly practical for everyday use. There’s room for four adults (five in a pinch), plus its hatchback shape allows for all manner of cargo to be stored inside. Plus systems like SYNC 3, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay mean the RS plays nice when all you want is to get from A to B.
