Ford confirms next-generation Focus RS

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

A variant of Ford's next-generation Focus will enter production, Ford's Derrick Kuzak confirmed at the Geneva Motor Show. He said that there would be a "global performance model" of Ford's new Focus.

He said that the car will receive the new Ecoboost technology and that fans would be pleased with how exciting this car is to look at as well as to drive.

According to Ford insiders, the decision on whether to give it the ST or RS badge has yet to be decided.

Insiders also say that it's possible that there would be a coupe variant, which could be the basis of the performance model. It's believed that the performance variant has a front-wheel drive and will be equipped with a turbocharged petrol engine, as in the current RS.

Power from the engine is estimated to be about 250bhp. Ford insiders say that to boost power output, the company plans to use hybrid technology.

The next-generation Focus is set to go on sale in late 2011; however, there's still no time frame with regards to launching the performance version. The person to lead the development of the new Focus variant is Jost Capito, Ford's performance car chief.
