Default Focus RS is coming to the US....FINALLY!

"...The holidays have come early, folks, as Ford has finally confirmed what we've been waiting years to hear: The ultra-high-performance Focus RS is coming to the U.S.! The news was dropped by none other than Ford CEO Mark Fields at a local press event here in Detroit, where he described the Focus RS as a "global" product.

Of course, we ran his statement by a source within Ford who confirmed that "global" in this case includes the U.S. of A. Whew! The RS is a range-topping performance model for the Focus line, one that has been sold overseas but never on our soil. The new RS will sit above the 252-hp Focus ST, and it could even come with all-wheel drive and nearly 300 horsepower. Think of it as an American Volkswagen Golf R with a more rip-snortin' personality, and you're on the money..."






[HR][/HR]
"...And it's official, a new halo brand has been created at Ford, and it's called Ford Performance. Think of it as Dearborn's own version of M or AMG.

The new division will be led by chief Mustang engineer Dave Pericak, and it will unify SVT, Team RS, and Ford Racing as a single, cohesive global brand... "

I'm a little sad they're going rid of SVT, it just sounds so much better than "Ford Performance".

Doubt it's going to end up being AWD though

How do you figuring? I thought both Team RS and Ford of Europe in general were pretty autonomous.

And I just got a fucking 14 ST. Fuck.

Let's wait to see what the price is, if it's around $35k I might consider trading up.
