For the first time ever, the new Ford Focus RS will be making the journey across the pond to be sold in the United States. The car will make it’s American debut at the New York International Auto Show next week. It will also come with a new signature Nitrous Blue colour which seems to make it all the more intimidating.
Raj Nair, the group vice president of Global Product Development said, “Customers have begged for the Focus RS to come to the United States for years” and added “And now we can say that they are getting one of the most innovative, powerful and best-looking RS cars ever. That is special”. This new upcoming era of Ford performance is certainly special: with the innovative torque vectoring Ford Performance All-Wheel Drive system as well as the 2.3-litre turbocharged EcoBoost engine with at least 315bhp. the new RS is definitely something to look forward too.
As well as the Nitrous Blue, the Focus RS will also be available in Stealth Grey, Shadow Black and Frozen White. Since it’s unveiling at Geneva early on in February, there have been very high expectations for the new Focus RS and it will no doubt deliver. New hot hatch king? We would say the odds are very good indeed.
