The 2016 Ford Focus RS will launch in the U.S. packing 345 horsepower from a 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine. But it won’t just be about its performance under the hood, the Focus RS will feature all-wheel drive with torque vectoring, allowing it to split from side-to-side and front-to-rear. According to Ford, up to 70 percent of total engine power can be diverted to the rear axle while 100 percent can be sent to either rear wheel.
