Limited Edition 2018 Ford Focus RS Marks the End of the Line

New mechanical limited-slip differential and cosmetic upgrades

The 2018 model year will be the last for the RS, and to give it a proper send-off, is giving the hot hatch new standard features it says are inspired by enthusiasts from Facebook pages, online forums, and fan clubs.

The final edition RS gets a new Quaife mechanical-slip differential for better torque delivery in low-grip situations. The 2018 Focus RS' 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine still produces 350 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque as it did in previous model years.

Ford offers the in a new body color: Race Red. The signature Nitrous Blue is also available. Other cosmetic embellishments, including a gloss-black roof, spoiler, and mirror caps, help differentiate limited edition models from the regular Focus RS. Ford also added RS logos on the side wings and 19-inch painted forged alloy wheels with blue RS center caps as standard.

The limited edition cars also feature interior accents such as carbon-fiber trim on the door handles and the handbrake lever and around the turbo boost gauges. The RS2 package is standard, as well. It includes Recaro seats, seat warmers, an eight-way power driver's seat, a heated steering wheel, and voice-controlled navigation.

Only 1,000 2018 Ford Focus RS models will be available to U.S. buyers, and 500 will go to Canada. Deliveries will begin in late 2017.
