The New Ford Focus RS Is A 330bhp AWD Hero

Developed in consultation with Ken Block, the third-gen Ford Focus RS combines a powerful 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine with a new high-tech, dynamic torque vectoring all-wheel drive system that brings it into line with other high-performance hatches like the Audi RS3. It will also be the first RS to be sold in the US.
