Everyone knows Ford is a U.S.-based car company, and while we do get many of the high-end offerings from the brand, we don’t get all of them. Automotive enthusiasts have been begging for the Focus RS to get a release here in the states, and Ford has finally adhered to these requests. Meet the stateside ready 2016 Ford Focus RS.

This beastly hatch is powered by a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder sourced from the Mustang EcoBoost. The exact numbers have yet to be revealed, but we do know it will be about 320 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque, and that it will be delivering that power through a 6-speed manual transmission. The vehicle utilizes Ford’s torque vectoring all-wheel drive, a system that monitors power with the ability to send 70 percent of it to the rear wheels, and 100 percent of that to just one wheel for optimum performance in sticky situations. In addition to the AWD, the new RS features a stiffer suspension setup, sway bars and adjustable dampers. The exterior also sees a slew of updates over the ST model from the large wing out back to the uniquely designed front fascia up front. Recaro bucket seats are also a standard option on this bad boy. Ford will officially debut to the Focus RS next month at the Geneva auto show, along with plenty more specs.
