2020 Ford Focus RS comes this year as a significantly changed model. The first version actually is not that much changed and comes with almost the same equipment and details, but then comes a new Focus with a hybrid engine. It will be a change that will move the model higher in the class.
- The model has an impressive hybrid engine as the main novelty.
- There is the slightly modernized design of the chassis.
- There is no information about the equipment in the cabin.
- The model is still not much competition in class it represents.
The first photos show that 2020 Ford Focus RS will not be much changed in design from the last model. It is for sure that it will have a hatchback version, as competition to Volkswagen Golf, and well-known sporty sedan option, more likely as Mazda 3.
However, there is a sporty version with a spoiler on the trunk door and the version with additions on the bumpers and bottom of the chassis. Other changes are not known so far, so we expect that the manufacturer will not change it significantly this time.
The manufacturer has not said much about the cabin in 2020 Ford Focus RS. It should retain the same details in design and devices and technology. Being a model made in a factory known to high technology, we are sure that they will put the best in class.
The main change in 2020 Ford Focus RS is in the engine that it offers. Let us remind on great petrol engine that current model has and which will surely be offered in one of the versions that the manufacturer will offer. It is a 2.3-liter four-cylinder turbocharged unit.
It produces acceptably high 350 horsepower of strength. However, the manufacturer announced something amazingly better than this. It should be an engine that produces 400 horsepower of strength and 425 pound-feet of torque.
This strength will be able to produce thanks to the 48-volt electrical system and integrated starter-generator. This engine will be able to increase the speed of 60 mph for 4.2 seconds. The manufacturer has decided to match this strong and fast engine with the all-wheel driving system and dual-clutch automatic transmission, firstly in hatchback that will be offered to the UN and China.
There will be the old six-speed manual transmission in the offer, too.
2020 Ford Focus RS Release Date and Price
Since the standard version of Focus will be released in April, there should not take much time before we see 2020 Ford Focus RS. It is expected that the final version of the model will be by the end of the year.
However, the price of $20,000 roughly is highly expected for this model, with a needed increase in the price in case that buyer choose one of the equipment or great engine options.
