When you consider the fervor over the upcoming release of the latest RS from Ford, the only factor that can beat the hype is the actual car itself. With the Focus RS, Ford cut no corners and is drawing new boundaries for what enthusiasts can expect from the blue oval. Most of all, we can thank them for bringing the RS to America. Turns out Americans do love to drive, and the Focus RS is all about driving. The RS speaks for itself with a barking, raspy burble that harkens to its rally heritage. But don’t worry, the RS is not all talk. Thanks to Ford’s innovative Torque Vectoring Rear Drive Module, power distribution is far more adaptable than ever before. This is just the tip of the iceberg, too; the RS boasts 350hp, aggressive lines, braking that inspires confidence, and an adjustable suspension. As the result of more than two years of development headed by Tyrone Johnson, Ford’s vehicle performance manager, it won’t take much time behind the wheel to justify that “RS” badge. So why not get started now?
— Official description [1]

The 2017 Ford Focus RS, abbreviated as Ford Focus '17, is a hot hatch featured in the Hot Wheels Car Pack for Forza Motorsport 6 and in all subsequent main titles.

Synopsis

Designed as a high-performance model ranging above the Focus ST, the Focus RS utilises all-wheel drive and is powered a turbocharged inline-four engine from the Ford Mustang Ecoboost. The 2017 model replaces the 2009 model as the third iteration of the Focus RS.

The Focus RS is an all-wheel drive hot hatch powered by a 2.3 litre turbocharged inline-four engine with 350 hp (261 kW) and 350 ft·lb (475 N·m) of torque. It is equipped with a six-speed manual transmission and is able to reach a top speed higher than 170 mph (274 km/h).

Performance

The Focus RS features exceptional handling performance due to a highly responsive steering, firm chassis and strong brakes, allowing it to outperform much more powerful cars on technical race tracks. The all-wheel drive system not only helps it in launching immediately off the line but also makes it possible to regain speed quickly when exiting corners.

Special Variants

Horizon Edition

The Horizon Edition (abbreviated as Focus '17 HE) in Forza Horizon 3 features a Drift skill boost and various handling upgrades including a race front bumper and rear wing that push its performance index to the top of A class.

The Horizon Edition not only offers mildly improved handling performance over the standard model but also serves as an ideal base for a handling-focused class S1 build.

It is available as a Horizon Wheelspin reward or via the Auction House.

Forza Edition

The Forza Edition in Forza Motorsport 7 is very similar to the Horizon Edition, but features a 40% CR boost and an additional 40% CR boost when driving at Watkins Glen, as well as homologated performance.

Players receive this car as a reward upon unlocking the Elite series of the Breakout Championship.
