Ford’s all-new high-performance hatchback, the Focus RS, will make its first appearance in America next week, revealing exclusive new signature colour Nitrous Blue at the New York International Auto Show.
This is the first ever Ford RS vehicle to be sold in America and will be offered in markets all over the world. Ford confirmed deliveries to customers in Europe will start early 2016.
The all-new Focus RS features the innovative Ford Performance All-Wheel-Drive system and a specially engineered 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine.
It also introduces advanced performance technologies, and is the first Ford RS equipped with selectable Drive Modes – including an industry-first Drift Mode that allows controlled oversteer drifts – and Launch Control.
The exterior design of the all-new Focus RS is both dramatic and functional, with a more powerful and muscular character. It will be offered in a choice of four-coat metallic finish Nitrous Blue and further striking colours including Shadow Black, Magnetic Grey and Frozen White.
