Performance Parts on the 2016 Ford Focus RS
The Focus RS is getting a lot of attention in the media lately – and for good reason. Since Ford released the first information on the powerful compact, tuners and performance car lovers alike have been clamoring to get a piece of the action. But aside from the 315 horsepower output of the 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder, what do we know about the new Focus RS? Let’s look at the performance parts on the 2016 Ford Focus RS to see all that we can expect from the car.
The AWD system on the new Focus RS will be unlike anything that has been seen in the industry previously. In addition to providing the appropriate power to the wheels when needed, the system will also control so much more. The system will be able to do things like read steering angle, suspension travel, wheel slip, throttle position and much more in order to give the Focus RS the highest level of traction.
To help keep all of the power properly harnessed, the car will also have Brembo brakes to slow it down when needed. Launch control – a feature the drifting community is very familiar with – will allow the car to remain stable in a variety of driving situations. The car can also switch torque to the rear wheels thanks to two-stage shocks, providing further control.
While the vehicle will initially feature a manual transmission, there have been rumors of an automatic being added if the demand is there. Rumors out there also hint at it being a fast-shifting dual-clutch type that will keep the performance numbers up.
Those are some of our favorite performance parts that are confirmed to be appearing on the new 2016 Focus RS. And it basically goes without saying that we are excited about the possibilities that the car will open in terms of attracting a new customer base to the brand. We can’t wait to see it in person here at Matt Ford.
