Ford Focus RS could make it to the U.S.

Article by Christian A., on August 26, 2010

It is a fact that most of the hottest products of Ford are not sold in the US. However, this may change soon as there is a new push for global models around the world and one may see these highly coveted cars reach the shores of the US.

The recently launched Ford Focus RS is one such model. It comes with a 305hp (224kW) powerplant derived from the Focus hatch sold beyond US shores.

According to Ford, a car like this could very well be offered in the Sates depending on the interest level generated by local Ford enthusiasts, such as owners of the Focus SVT. Consequently, Ford is seeking feedback from both customers and the media. 

Although the car receives a green light for the US markets, Ford says that it will still have to wait until the new-generation of the car patterned after the global-engineered 2011 Focus.

The US version of the RS, Ford revealed, will be derived on this new platform and would be locally assembled, implying that Ford is actually contemplating producing a high-performing RS variant of its next-generation Focus.

Although it was heard a month ago that the present Ford Focus RS is the last of its kinds, these current comments by the company cancels those reports as highly unlikely.
