2016 Ford Focus RS seen at the Nürburgring

27th August 2014

Ford is preparing for the 2016 debut of its new Ford Focus RS by testing the vehicle at Germany's Nürburgring. The Focus RS is expected to fit into Ford's schedule before the update of the Focus, and will be marketed as a top-of-the-range vehicle.

The current priority for the brand is testing the powertrain of the RS. The Focus ST has been used as a testing mule for the mechanical components of the RS, and further analysis is expected in the near future. It is predicted that Ford plans to reveal the potent hatchback during the last half of 2015.

It is likely that the Focus RS will be powered by a 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine, which is currently used as part of the carmaker's Mustang line-up. The engine is capable of producing 304bhp in the Mustang, and is expected to undergo tweaking to produce up to 345bhp with the Focus RS.

It has been confirmed that the model will be front-wheel drive, and Ford is yet to announce whether a three or five-door shape will be offered. Currently, the Focus is not manufactured in three-door guise.
