A new flagship of Ford has already been confirmed, the next-generation Ford Focus RS hot-hatch for the late 2013 or early 2014. The Ford Focus RS is the latest generation Focus small car.
Gunnar Herrmann, who is the company’s global boss for small cars (C- segment) platform, stated that the iteration of the hot- hatch is on progress at this week’s local launch of the all-new Focus.
The ongoing RS was coming in limited numbers earlier than it’s expected to Australia last year, bringing itself along with tag price at $59,990. That current RS was already has an amazing engineering by mounted 224 kW of power over the front wheels only. However, Ford said that the latest RS will get its engine replaced to a more powerful engine and the company will close its eyes to all wheel drive.
Herrmann said that the company might begin to build the RS with two wheel drive strategy which is expected to be better executed compared to the ongoing version. He added the latest RS will be available in more power even from the limited edition RS500 which has been sold especially in the UK empowers by 350 hp or 261 kW. Some of the upgraded units is up to 380 hp or 283 kW.
The latest RS is expected to retain the suspension of ‘Revoknuckle’ suspension joined with a Quaife automatic torque biasing limited-slip differential which enables Ford to produce output 224 kW over the front wheels without making any unnecessary torque steer. We can infer from that Herrmann’s statements, it means that it is not true if the new RS would employ all- wheel drive and adopt electric motors in order to support the rear axle.
The new Focus RS is estimated to employ the specially treated 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine which replaces the 2012 Ford Focus ST. the previous Focus ST produces output around 250 hp while the latest hot hatch RS version will spawn almost 350 hp.
