2015 Ford Focus RS Mule Caught in Spy Photos

2015 Ford Focus RS Mule Caught in Spy Photos

The fate is still uncertain for the Ford Focus RS, which has been rumored for a 2015 debut in North America, and here we have the latest spy shots of what is likely Ford’s hot hatch, which will be sporting a new look, despite what is lurking under the hood.

The Focus seen in these spy photos may be a mule for a new RS model, though it also might simply be a test of an upcoming Focus facelift. Either way, expect an updated design that’s similar to the new Fiesta. Up front we see the grille will have a different shape with bigger openings. If we are indeed looking at a more powerful Focus RS or ST, the bigger grille makes more sense.

The Focus RS will likely use a new 2.3-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, making as much as 350 hp. Also helping to make this vehicle more track ready will be a traditional limited slip differential, with power heading to the front wheels.
