The 2016 Focus RS leverages innovative Ford Performance All-Wheel Drive with Dynamic Torque Vectoring to deliver a new level of handling capability and driver enjoyment -- combining outstanding traction with unmatched agility and cornering speed.
Other exclusive chassis features include a sport suspension with stiffer spring rates and more efficient bushes and antiroll bars than those found in Focus ST, and two-mode switchable dampers, which offer a firmer setting for track use. Specially tuned electric power-assisted steering, in combination with an optimized front suspension knuckle design and shorter link arms delivers connected and responsive steering with outstanding feel.
The driver can select from four different drive modes to configure the Focus RS for optimum performance in road or circuit driving conditions -- normal, sport, track and a special drift mode.
