The Ford Focus RS has just experienced its recent demise, but that doesn't mean that it's no longer a good car to drive. In stock form, the turbo hatch carries itself well on road and off. The improved Focus RS also boasts 438 lb ft of torque (343kW) over the outgoing model, which makes it an exciting drive.
All the new Focus RSs have been developed by Ford's motorsport division, which is led by chief engineer Patrick Head. Head has a proven track record in developing both fast and powerful vehicles, so it's little wonder that his Focus RS teams are producing some of the most powerful and impressive cars available in the market today. And we're not talking about a mere six horsepower bump over the older model.
The new Focus RS is not just faster and more powerful; it's also more refined, quieter, and much more reliable on the road. And with more than 500 horsepower at the back of the car, the RS proves its mettle as a fast, strong, and reliable sports car.
The first step in creating a successful vehicle was to determine what kind of car the RS should be. Head decided that the best choice would be a four-wheel-drive sports car that had to be light and stiff enough to handle well off-road. Then, while he worked on making the car lightweight and powerful, he designed it to use a lighter version of the turbo system and to minimize the weight of the suspension by up to 25 percent.
In order to improve the speed of the engine, the engineers decided that they needed to make the engine more compact. A small tube is placed in a central position of the engine, while the rest of the engine is placed further out to allow for better exhaust air flow. This new layout allows for a more powerful engine with better power output and more powerful exhaust. It also allowed for the development of a much more powerful exhaust system, which is able to channel the exhaust fumes from the engine at high velocities.
The RS' chassis was also modified to improve the handling abilities of the car. The RS' body kit was given a much stronger, lower profile front end, which allows for better grip on the road. The RS' tailgate was made taller so that it does not interfere with the hatch opening when the vehicle is opened, and for better steering response. Meanwhile, the roll cage and side skirt were redesigned to further improve the car's agility.
To keep the ride comfortable and smooth, the RS now uses a carbon fiber tub, rather than the traditional fiberglass body. With this, the car's weight was greatly reduced. The tailgate, which is one of the reasons why the RS was able to cut down on fuel consumption, was also revised so it does not need to open as often. Finally, suspension geometry was improved so the suspension geometry can be altered in quick succession to give the car a dynamic look.
With the RS, Ford is able to produce a hot hatch that can go toe to toe with the other vehicles that are on sale in the market. The RS is not only a fast car, but it's also one that is great for road trips. While this car does have a few disadvantages, it proves to be a better fit for the environment, and makes a good addition to a family.
However, the RS has its disadvantages, like any other vehicle. Its lack of horsepower might be a drawback in terms of safety, as its low profile design might lead to an accident. Also, its smaller size might be a disadvantage in terms of fuel efficiency, as the engine will be slower than the one that is used in other cars in your family.
However, the RS is not without its benefits, because it is very fuel efficient. As mentioned earlier, this car uses a small turbo for boosting power, which means it will burn less gas. Also, its turbo is located in a central position to allow for better exhaust air flow.
These are just some of the reasons why the Focus RS is considering a great car. Ford has managed to develop a car that is both fast and safe, while at the same time being able to provide superior handling abilities and ride comfort. Because of the many innovations it has done, the RS is now considered a great car. Its great handling abilities and safety will be a great addition to any family.
