Next-gen Ford Focus RS to get 335 HP image

The next generation of the Ford Focus RS is expected to get an impressive 335 HP from its 2.3 liter engine, once it will make its way onto the market.

The upcoming Ford Focus RS, which is wearing the 2016 model year in its name, as recent reports indicate, meaning that it will be launched in 2015, will get a staggering total output of 335 HP (246 kW), out of its 2.3 liter four-cylinder engine. This is even more impressive because Ford will most likely still use the front-wheel drive and this can be translated into a massive under steer, because the front wheels can’t handle all of this torque and the cornering problem too.

The 2016 Ford Focus RS will get a turbocharger, direct injection and some other tweaks, which will eventually be carried over onto the future generation of the Mustang, which will also get the EcoBoost engine under its hood. Rumors are saying that the upcoming Ford Focus RS will get a 40,000 euros starting price on the Old Continent so our advice is to save some money and go for the Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG which has all-wheel drive, a double clutch transmission, a smaller and more powerful engine and a premium touch.
