2018 Ford Focus RS Interior and Exterior
Other models of Ford Focus RS have been sold in Mexico and Canada, but never in the United States, but the situation will change with the 2018 Ford Focus RS. There have been factors that influenced the Ford Motor Company’s decision to keep the Ford Focus RS away from the American market, with the main issue being price(latest version was selling for about $38,000 USD, between the years 2009-2010) .However, there are prospects of the arrival of this new model in the US, because of the “one Ford” Policy of the Blue Oval, and also because of the fact that the new Ford Focus RS prototypes have previously been spotted in the United States.
This new model will come with five doors, unlike the previous models which had three doors. The new model will also have an aggressive/muscular look at the front, just like the previous ones, and this will be joined by side sills, a diffuser and dual exhaust tips integrated with the rear bumper, and a spoiler at the rear. This model will also have bigger tires and wheels, copious ducts and vents, thus enhancing the design.
