Jennings Ford showcases all-new Ford Focus RS at exclusive preview event

Jennings Ford, part of the multi-award winning Jennings Motor Group, was the first dealer in Teesside to preview the all-new pre-production Ford Focus RS model.

Customers were given an exclusive sneak preview of the all-new mega hatchback model with its specially engineered 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine at Jennings Ford’s Cargo Fleet Lane dealership in Middlesbrough.

Throughout the event, customers were also given the opportunity to take part in some interactive activity with a number of gaming seats available, in addition to getting expert advice from a Ford RS specialist.

Colin Massey, sales manager at the Jennings Ford dealership in Middlesbrough, said; “We were delighted to be able to showcase the third generation all-new pre-production Ford Focus RS model.

“The event was a huge success and customers were extremely impressed with the overall appearance and range of advanced performance technologies the model has to offer.”

To date, more than 31 orders for the all-new Ford Focus RS have been taken at Jennings Ford, with customers expected to take delivery of their new motors sometime in spring.

Priced from £29,995, the all-new Ford Focus RS comes with a specially engineered 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine and a range of advanced performance technologies, including all-wheel drive with dynamic torque vectoring control, launch control and selectable drive modes, such as Normal, Sport, Track and Drift.  Each model adjusts the all-wheel drive system, damper controls, electronic stability control and ABS systems, steering, engine responses and engine sound.

The 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine’s revolutionary technology incorporates direct fuel injection, twin independent variable camshaft timing and a twin-scroll turbocharger.

A distinctive front bumper and huge air vents envelope the front vents, which features a visible intercooler to leave a genuine racing impression.

The five-door model provides a spacious interior that defies the sporty exterior appearance.  Recaro sports seats not only look stunning, but also offer excellent support.  Ford SYNC connectivity system is fitted as standard with the eight-inch colour touchscreen easy to use and access.
