Limited Edition 2018 Ford Focus RS Gets More Potent in the Best Way

Even though the 2018 Ford Focus RS is pretty new, its already due for an upgrade along with the rest of the Blue Oval’s compact family. That’s a shame, since reviewers and drivers alike love it. But to give it the proper send off, Ford is giving its world-class powertrain some love to make it more fun for enthusiasts.

This “Limited Edition” treatment will extend to all 1,000 U.S.-bound units, and include the once-optional RS2 package as standard equipment. This means the Recaro sport seats with heated leather with suede inserts will be found on all vehicles, along with carbon fiber components for the boost gauge, brake lever, and door handles. Yet, that’s just the beginning. With the blessing of enthusiasts, Ford has fitted a limited-slip differential to the front wheels. By working with the car’s already stellar brake and torque vectoring systems, drivers will notice a lack of wheel spin during heavy acceleration.

That seems like a fitting swan song to us. Before we even think about what the 2019 RS will bring, why not check out the latest at our Ford dealership in Lake Orion, MI? We’d be happy to tell you all about ordering and availability.
