If you’re looking for fast and fun, it doesn’t come much better than this: the 2018 Ford Focus RS Limited Edition. This is the final year for the Model and only 500 of them are available in Canada at all. In response to fan requests and demand, Ford has created a limited-edition performance Focus RS. Previously optional features are now standard. There are exclusive colors and design elements. Dubbed the “hot hatch,” the 2018 Focus RS satisfies the demand for a higher performance RS.
Again, there are only 500 of these beauties available in Canada and Tusket Ford has one of them!
Power and Style Combined
The 2018 limited edition model features a 2.3L EcoBoost engine that gives you 350 Horsepower and 350 lb.-ft. of torque. But those numbers don’t count for anything without control. So the 2018 Focus RS Ford Performance All-Wheel-Drive System precisely distributes the power where you need it, as well as driver-selectable suspension settings that let you tune the ride to suit your style. You can adjust its all-wheel drive and the suspension to your exact needs and wants.
Ford has equipped the Focus RS with a standard mechanical limited slip differential on the front axle and a first ever drift mode as part of its Focus RS drive mode options. The limited-slip differential will allow drivers enhanced delivery of power to the front wheels and the new drift mode will make play time with the RS even more fun.
The control is all yours, with a 6-speed manual transmission and four different modes you can choose to determine your driving experience: Normal, Sport, Track, and Drift. Yes, drift! Sound like fun?
The Focus RS drift mode is best-suited for track conditions to create a controlled oversteer drift. Drift mode is similar to a performance car’s “track” mode or “race” mode and allows for higher performance from the powertrain. In drift mode, the hot hatch can launch from the start line, racing from 0 to 60 mph in only 4.7 seconds.
This RS also comes with 19 inch forged alloy rims and Michelin Super Sport Summer tires,. In Canada it comes with winter tires as well!
Speed AND Comfort
Take a look at the interior of the RS Limited Edition and you’ll find everything you need in terms of stay-connected technology. More than that, the RS comes with RECARO® leather-trimmed heated seats, heated mirrors and steering wheel, and voice-activated navigation. It also of course boasts a primo stereo, and everything is voice activated.
This speedster is definitely built for comfort and speed. On the road or on the track, the 2018 Focus RS is for you.
