Ford Focus RS power output officially released
Posted on 26 Jun 2015
As the frenzy around the impending Ford Focus RS launch increases, Ford has finally released the exact power output that can be expected from the 3rd generation of the RS. The 2.3l turbocharged four-cylinder engine will produce a whopping 345bhp.
Sharing the same engine as the all new Ford Mustang, it will offer 324lb ft of torque between 2,000rpm and 4,5000rpm. An additional 15 second overboost increases this figure even further to 347lb ft.
With the largest radiator pack ever seen on a Ford Focus, the air intake is increased helping the twin-scroll turbo together with the intercooler. An electronically controlled valve monitors pressure as well as a large performance exhaust system. The drift mode is one of the selectable drive modes that will feature on the new Ford Focus RS, helping the four wheel drive system and the dynamic torque vectoring.
