They began to know some details about the new-generation Focus RS model from 2018-2019 Ford.
Portal Piston Heads said, referring to the chief engineer of Team RS Branch Lena Urvina that the novelty will get an electronically controlled limited-slip front differential and power unit has an output of 350 horsepower.
Most likely, these innovations will affect the cost of the 2018-2019 Ford Focus RS, however, how much will increase the price is still unknown.
It is also unlikely the appearance of the car modification wheel drive.
After all, the all-wheel drive 2018-2019 Ford models used Haldex coupling, where the priority is to a greater extent, given to the front axle.
As Len says Urvin, this leads to understeer the car, and thus for a new generation Focus RS decided to use an active front differential.
If we talk about the engine, it is likely there will make a choice in favor of the EcoBoost powertrain, a volume of 2.3 liters, which the Americans are developing for the next-generation Mustang model.
However – this is only an assumption, although it is known for sure that the 2018-2019 Ford Focus RS will produce only 5 -door body.
Issue 3 -door option is not included in the company’s plans.
