2016 Ford Focus RS Likely for North America with AWD

Those in North America hoping for a chance to buy the Ford Focus RS may have their wishes granted.

Road and Track is reporting that a source inside Ford has confirmed that the new Focus RS will likely be made available to North Americans in limited quantities, and the car will send power to all four wheels unlike its predecessor.

Power will come from the 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine found in the 2015 Mustang, where it makes 310 hp and 320 lb-ft of torque. Expect the output for the RS to be somewhere in the 300 hp range, though according to the source, power numbers are not yet finalized.
