2018 Ford Focus RS Limited Edition Getting a Proper Send Off

The Ford Focus RS is one of the most lauded hot-hatches in the world right now, but unfortunately, 2018 will be the last time you can get it in its current form. That’s because the whole Focus line is getting a generational update for the 2019 model year, and the RS will be updated, too (although we can’t imagine how they could make it better than it is already). To give the Focus RS a proper send off, the 2018 model will come packed with additional goodies.

One of the reasons the Focus RS is so well thought of its marriage of a turbocharged four-cylinder, AWD, and active brake and torque vectoring control. For 2018, Ford has added a limited-slip differential to the front wheels. This works in conjunction with the aforementioned systems to prevent wheel slip during acceleration—especially when coming out of a turn. Other features include the RS2 package coming standard, and the addition of the color “Race Red” to the palette.

Here’s the kicker, however: only 1,000 units will make it to North America. So if you want to sample the 2018 Focus RS, contact our Ford dealership in Santa Monica, CA with all speed.
