Sure, the new Focus RS won’t be arriving in America until spring of next year, but that’s no reason to let the hype simmer. To help keep your focus and get prospective buyers adequately pumped for their purchases, Ford has launched its 2016 Focus RS configurator.
To configurate your 2016 Focus RS, you’ll need to navigate in through the 2016 Focus configurator, select hatches, and scroll down past the ST. Here, you’ll discover that the Focus RS is available in four colors: Shadow Black, Frozen White, Stealth Gray, and Nitrous Blue (for an additional $695).
The standard 600A equipment group offers technology including a 10-speaker audio system from Sony® with subwoofer, SiriusXM Satellite Radio, HD Radio™, and SYNC® 3. Safety and performance-wise, the Focus RS comes standard with a rearview camera, Hill Start Assist, 4-wheel disc ABS, Electronic Brake Assist, Electric power-assisted steering, and Remote Keyless entry.
The Focus RS comes standard with 19-inch premium painted alloy wheels, but 19-inch premium painted forged alloy wheels with Michelin Pilot Cup Sport 2 Summer Track Tires can be swapped in for an additional $1,990 and 19-inch premium painted forged alloy wheels without the track tires can be added for $1,395.
The RS2 Interior Package ($2,785) adds an eight-way power driver seat, Black leather Recaro® seats with Miko®-Dinamica inserts, heated mirrors, heated front seats, heated steering wheel, and voice-activated touchscreen navigation system with SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link®.
The only other additional accessories are an $895 power moonroof and a car cover that doesn’t seem to ever want to load when you click on it (PLEASE FIX THIS FORD, BECAUSE ENQUIRING MINDS MUST KNOW).
All told, a maxed out Focus RS (less the mystery car cover) will run $42,970 before taxes. Small price to pay for something so ridiculously good looking. We’ll see you next year, you beautiful beast.
