2018 Ford Focus RS Limited Edition Engine and Powertrain Features
So, it’s going to be pretty tough to outperform the 2017 Ford Focus RS, right? You’d think so, but then again, tough tasks are exactly what the engineers at Ford love to take on. Let’s start with the engine. The new Ford Focus RS Limited Edition will feature a 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine capable of pumping out a whopping 350 horsepower. The powertrain also features the Quaife limited-slip differential, which enables the 2018 Ford Focus RS Limited Edition to excel at acceleration and stability by limiting engine torque delivered to the front wheel with reduced traction and redistributing that torque to the wheel with more traction to reduce differences in wheel spin. Furthermore, the powertrain features Ford Performance All-Wheel Drive, Dynamic Torque Vectoring, Torque Vectoring Control and the standard Ford Focus RS driving modes.
“Our new limited-edition Focus RS represents accessible performance at its finest. Improving on the thrilling driving dynamics of the Focus RS is no small task – but our Ford Performance engineers have delivered a drivetrain capable of wringing every drop of performance from the engine.” – Jamal Hameedi, Ford Performance Chief Engineer
