VIDEO: Behind The Scenes Look at the All New 2016 Ford Focus RS
The Ford Performance Team Shows Us What it takes to bring a Performance Icon Back!
We’re pretty excited about checking out the all-new 2016 Ford Focus RS when it hits the streets and with 350hp on tap at all four corners, it’s easy to see why. While we already know that the car is packed to the brim with all kinds of performance oriented upgrades, there’s nothing quite like getting a good behind the scenes look at how the car came to be. Fortunately, Ford Performance has documented the road to bringing back this legendary name.
There have been three Focus RS models and they all featured cues from the rally race predecessor, but this all-new model will be the first to be offered with All-Wheel Drive. As if that wasn’t enough, the RS model also features numerous modes to make the car handle appropriately in any situation. From brutally hot deserts to high altitude mountain passes, the Focus RS was designed to tackle it all. Naturally the folks at Ford decided to put a few cars through a 1-mile drive through epic terrain through the Rocky Mountains and the blisteringly hot deserts of Arizona and luckily they decided to film it all to give us a behind the scenes look at what it takes to proudly wear the RS badge.
