Ford has officially announced that the 2016 Focus RS pumps out a total of 350 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque.
These revelations come on the back of the American marque revealing a couple months ago that the car delivered 345 hp. Before that, Ford claimed it would simply have in excess of 315 hp. The final 350 hp figure means it pumps out a very impressive 152 hp per litre with the twin-scroll turbocharging running at up to 23.2 psi responsible for much of the 2.3-litre EcoBoost’s power and torque.
Additionally, the Focus RS makes use of an advanced new intake design while the exhaust system comes complete with electronically-controlled valves.
Ford has also just revealed that the Focus RS makes use of a Stall Recovery feature. This is a feature of the start-stop system and in the event that the driver stalls the car, the system will automatically restart the engine and automatically press in the clutch.
The Focus RS also features a Drift Mode and Launch Control. Meanwhile, the powertrain has been “specially engineered” for the Focus RS and the car has been tuned by the engineers to produce a sporty sound during performance driving as this video showcases.
