Looking for the hottest hatchback in the world? Then it is time to set aside a few minutes of your day and get to know the all-new Ford Focus RS. And who better to bring you up to speed on the performance and style that comes with this adrenaline-pumping automotive offering than Dover's leading name in Ford vehicles – the inviting and knowledgeable staff of RS gurus here at Bill Dube Ford.
From the aggressive design of the Focus RS to the raw power generated by its 2.3 liter (L) EcoBoost engine, in addition to this power hatchback's surprisingly comfy and accommodating interior, we have no doubts you will be more than enticed by all that the RS has to offer to drivers in the Dover area.
With this in mind, feel free to join the Bill Dube Ford team as we dive into all of the unique features and inclusions that help set the Focus RS apart from its boring and underperforming counterparts from across the industry. In fact, we are so confident you will like what you see after this quick tour of the Focus RS that the only question you will be left with is: "Can I drive home in one today?"
The best way to start the conversation surrounding the RS is by taking a moment to appreciate the stunning lines and bold design of this hatchback's exterior. After all, if you have seen one of these cars gliding down the streets here in Dover, or it is your first time stepping onto the lot at Bill Dube Ford, you know by now that the first thing most people notice with this vehicle is the breathtaking allure and style of the Focus RS.
So what exactly makes the RS stand out from a crowd? How about the aggressive slotted front grille of the Focus emblazoned with the signature RS logo, and this vehicle's various iconic paint schemes (including Shadow Black and Nitrous Blue)? Or perhaps the ground-hugging sport trim, smooth arching roof, and rear spoiler – which all come together to give the RS the look of a feral predator ready to pounce – does the trick for you.
Either way, one thing is for certain: The Ford Focus RS is a vehicle built not just upon power and speed, but also upon the notion that turning heads as it takes the streets by storm is all part of a day's work.
Now that we have covered the style and grace of the RS, it is time to tackle the conversation that all of the gearheads in Dover came here for: What is happening under the hood of the vehicle that has dominated the rally and race scene (both in competitions and via benchmark testing) in Europe for the past several years before finally making its grand appearance in the United States in 2016.
To start, the Ford Focus RS is packing a turbo-charged and intercooled Double OverHead Cam (DOHC) 16-valve, inline four-cylinder 2.3 L EcoBoost engine. To put all of these numbers and specs into perspective, the RS generates the following best-in-class performance when the rubber meets the road:
In other words, the Ford Focus RS does not mess around when it comes to converting the raw power of its turbocharged 2.3 L EcoBoost engine into actionable performance for the bolder drivers of Dover.
Of course, having all of the power in the world only goes so far if you are not in complete control of it. Fortunately, the RS has you covered on this front as well via the Ford All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) system. As part of this engineering marvel, RS drivers can shift between different "driving modes" based on their unique needs and their current driving environment. Should you join this elite group of automotive performance aficionados, the driving modes at your disposal will include:
With these driving modes and the RS's impressive AWD system on your side, tackling any sport challenge that comes your way (or adding a little extra excitement into your daily driving routine) becomes second nature in a hurry.
Combining an impressive amount of power from under the hood with an AWD system that keeps you in control is clearly enough to leap out ahead of the rest of the pack. However, the engineers behind the Ford Focus RS understand that maintaining this industry-leading position requires an even deeper commitment to performance and innovation. With this in mind, the team over at Ford have chocked this hatchback full of outstanding features that work in harmony to bring anyone bold enough to get behind the wheel of this car the maximum amount of exhilaration and excitement.
On the outside, the improved design of the rear diffuser and sporty spoiler helps maximize the downforce generated by the RS. This, in turn, fosters a zero-lift driving experience that creates optimum high-speed handling when you need it most. Additionally, 18-inch Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4 tires, mounted on stunning silver-painted alloy wheels, ensure that traction and control never fall by the wayside – even in the harshest of driving conditions.
Once you sit down inside of the RS, the same level of industry-leading attention to detail and impressive innovation is there to greet you. From the Ford SYNC 3 smart car system that allows you to seamlessly integrate your favorite mobile device with a voice-operated touchscreen display to the futuristic driver dashboard system that gives you the ability to toggle between various state-of-the-art features (including Launch Control and Hill Start Assist functions), the amenities found within the Ford Focus RS are just as impressive as what is found on the outside or under the hood.

Should you find yourself driving home in the evocative and powerful Ford Focus RS in the near future, you can take the wheel with confidence knowing that the following protections and assurances have your back across every mile journeyed:
