Ford Focus RS Gets Standard Limited-Slip Differential

Ford Focus RS Limited Edition an LSD-equipped send-off for the US

The Limited Edition cars also have a few subtle visual upgrades like painted 19-inch forged wheels and gloss black mirror caps, roof and rear spoiler. They have blue RS center caps, matching the logos on the side wings. It includes Recaro seats, seat warmers, an eight-way power driver's seat, a heated steering wheel, and voice-controlled navigation.

The new front limited-slip diff will complement the standard rally-friendly features of the RS model including torque vectoring control, which applies brake force to reduce wheelspin at the front axle, and a dynamic torque vectoring system that uses electronically controlled clutch packs at the rear axle to send 100 percent of available rear axle torque to either rear wheel when needed.

As a result, Ford has rolled out the 2018 Focus RS Limited Edition, which will include unique features inside, outside and under the vehicle - but only 1,000 examples will be made for the United States and Canada will get just 500 examples of this hotter hatch. The 2.3-liter, 350 horsepower EcoBoost engine is the same, as is the drift mode which has seen an upsetting number of RS end up in ditches as eager drivers find going sideways has its drawbacks.

"Our new Focus RS Option Pack represents accessible performance at its finest", Roeks said. This limited-edition Focus RS will more easily carry speed through a corner on the track, and allow for maximum acceleration on the way out. "We have spent a great deal of time listening to our customers, speaking to owners' club members, reading comments and suggestions on enthusiast websites, and even studying various forum Photoshop renderings". With that output heading to the pavement through all four wheels, the Focus RS can sprint from a standstill to 60 miles per hour in 4.5 seconds. Ford expects to begin taking orders this summer, with deliveries taking place later in 2017.

An ode to the current-generation Focus RS, which will go out of production following the 2018 model year, the special edition will be limited to 1,000 units in the USA and another 500 in Canada.
