    2015 Ford Focus RS could get more than 320 horsepower!!

    SHARE

    You will never see the 2015 Ford Focus RS arrives in showrooms until the high-performance hatchbacks launched next year, as we’ve said in previous articles. The Detroit automaker reportedly will not bring the new Focus RS at the Geneva Motor Show which is currently underway at the Palexpo. In fact, we will not see it at this year’s Paris Motor Show.

    The high-performance Focus RS is scheduled to be launched in 2015 and we’re guessing it’ll arrive at the Detroit Auto Show next year. So far we believe a Mustang 2.3L EcoBoost engine will be placed at the heart of the next-gen Focus RS, but certainly with greater horsepower output. However, you will never see an all-wheel drive version. You know what’s the reason?

    We’ve said in previous articles that the 2015 Ford Focus RS will be powered by a turbocharged 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine, which is predicted to develop around 355 horsepower and 345 lb-ft of torque. Well, according to a recent report, this four-cylinder EcoBoost engine can deliver more than 320 horsepower. So I guess the engine power output will be around 320-350 HP, but it should be more powerful than the 2011 Focus RS500.

    The high-performance RS models will be offered as a five-door hatchback with front-wheel drive configuration, instead of AWD. But not only that, Ford is likely to offer some high-performance equipment such as new active electronic differential, new RevoKnuckle front suspension and high-performance brakes. We hope the release date information will be announced later this year.

    1. i think ever since success of the 2005 mustang went over so well that car companys are going back to the basics like the 60s and 70s. it worked with the mustang and challenger and camaro, how ever it doesnt work with everything. bringing back the bronco could be risky,for emple they stoped makeing them because they ate to much fuel and people wanted for doors. that was almost twenty years ago.now people want room, luxury andfuel economy. the expedition is alrady over due for a remodel or atleastput the ecoboost or 5.0 in them. more power and mpg…hello? the old doesnt always come back so good, i worked ata ford dealer when the new fiesta came back and we sold like 5 total an one of them had a transmission go out onthe lot brandnew with 2 miles on it. just sayin.. if the old bronco does come back heres a tip make it 4 door and use the ecoboost and 5.0 engine and either make itlook like a bronco or an f150 suv like they did in the late 80s early90s. ps if you would haveput the 3.7 and 3.5 v6 in the sport trac you would still be makeing them…pps the new mustang looks to futurestic.
