Last week at the Geneva Motor Show, the global community was introduced to a remarkable and innovative new model of a beloved favorite. While the Ford Focus has always been a popular and reliable choice for drivers around the world, the Ford Company was still looking for ways to improve and advance. In the newest Ford Focus RS, they have done just that. This third generation Ford Focus RS features cutting edge performance technologies to create a drive experience that is more fun than ever. It also includes various drive modes, a first for RS models, and a launch control, adding to the entertainment of driving it.
And that’s just the beginning of the work Ford automakers have done to make the new Ford Focus RS a truly exhilarating model to drive. The 2.3 liter EcoBoost produces over 315 horsepower, which pairs with the most powerful braking system seen yet in a Ford RS. It is also uses the exciting new Ford Performance All-Wheel Drive with Dynamic Torque Vectoring, which gives drivers the tools they need to handle all that power and keep themselves safe and entertained as they whip around curves and play with all the new technology.
And it gets even better. In the past, Ford RS models have been reserved for international markets. But the all-new Ford Focus RS will be the first RS model to be sold in North America, meaning that its recent introduction to the world in Geneva is just the first hello for US drivers. Of course, we have a while to wait for this brand new version, but drivers can head to their local Ford dealership today to enjoy the fun and reliability of the Ford Focus. Shelbyville, Louisville, and other Kentucky drivers can visit us at O’Brien Ford of Shelbyville to test drive the 2015 Ford Focus and find out what makes every version of this car so special.
