Along with Focus ST and Fiesta ST, the lineup already includes Shelby®GT350 and GT350R, which debuted late last year.

Developed by a team of Ford Performance engineers in Europe and the U.S., Focus RS is powered by a specially engineered version of Ford’s new 2.3-liter EcoBoost®engine. Its 4.7-second 0-62-mph sprint makes the high-performance hatchback thefastest-acceleratingFord RS model ever.
