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.
