Ford plans even more extreme 2020 Focus RS

Production of the current generation Ford Focus RS ends on April 6, but fans of one of the best “hot-dogs” will not wait long for a new version

It is speculated that it will appear on the market by 2020, and Ford is expected to extract additional power from the 2.3-liter four-cylinder. The biggest change will supposedly be a hybrid add-on that will consist of a 48-volt electrical system and an integrated starter-generator. This system should bring the new Focus RS power of 405 hp and 576 Nm of torque, and the only gearbox would be a double clutch automatic. The hybrid system, apart from its strength, should have some other advantages, such as increasing power while changing speeds so that the torque will never fall. The new Focus should be about 50 kg lighter than the current, but the hybrid system could increase the weight of the RS model compared to the outgoing. If these rumors are true, the Focus RS will have similar specifications as the new Mercedes-Benz A45, which will extract more than 400 hp from the 2.0-liter four-cylinder.  Renders: X-Tomi Design
