News on 2016 Ford Focus RS

According to reports the 2016 version of the Ford Focus RS is expected to pack a punch thanks to its 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine, of the inline four-cylinder variety. News on its overall power seems to be conflicting, as EVO said it will produce around 250 hp, which is less than the current model, whereas past rumors suggest a more acceptably 300 horsepower.

However, the more important aspect of these specifications is its new all-wheel drive complete with brake-operated torque-vectoring for greater control. The new Focus RS should be able to send around 60 percent of the engines power to the rear wheels when needed, and so allowing for improved traction.

Price wise, there are rumors of $37,000 and being so close to $40,000 will make the BMW M135i 4wd hatchback seem more of a bargain.
