2016 Ford Focus RS : Hot Hatch

FordFocusRS 02 560x280Ford took the wraps off their new hot hatch yesterday when it unveiled the 2016 Ford Focus RS. The high-performance road car features the all-new Ford Performance All-Wheel Drive with Dynamic Torque Vectoring Control and a 2.3-liter EcoBoost® engine producing well in excess of 315 horsepower.

FordFocusRS 04 560x280Gymkhana and World Rallycross star Ken Block was brought on as a consultant on the all-new Focus RS, so of course they had to let him test out a prototype. The result is this awesome video of Block hooning about in Ford’s Cologne, Germany factory before drifting right into their launch event…

The new Ford Focus RS looks tight, and apparently it’s fun to drive too. Check out Ford Racing for much more detail on the latest competitor in the hot hatch segment.
