Focus RS coming to America

IT'S HAPPENING: Ford CEO Confirms The Focus RS Is Coming To America

Quote:
We U.S. Americans have never had the Ford Focus RS. That is a tragedy. It is also a tragedy that new Ford CEO Mark Fields says he's going to fix.

Yes, America is getting the Ford Focus RS. GET EXCITED EVERYONE.

This information is brought to us by Auto week editor Jake Lingeman on Twitter, and it comes from the new man at the top himself today at Ford's end of year event. Suddenly I like Mark Fields quite a bit.

The last Focus RS was powered by a machine gun-esque 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine with 305 horsepower, but a new one — the one we're getting — is currently under development.

The last we heard, it could have a version of the 2.3-liter turbo four in the Mustang EcoBoost, which makes a lot of sense. The word on the street lately is that it will stay front-wheel drive, which I'm okay with because demonic torque steer is a lot of fun.

At last, America. At last we get the Ford Focus we deserve.

Aaaaand it's going to cost over $40k, since the ST already costs close to $40k after taxes and fees in Canada...

^ If it stays FWD it'd be foolish to buy a 40k Focus over an S550 GT...

Pretty sure that is the previous gen Focus RS, which was available only in Europe.
