The new Focus RS goes on sale next spring, as a 2016 model. It draws its power from a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine similar to the one fitted to the Mustang EcoBoost. The car was recently re-rated with a peak output of 350 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque, which is enough for 0-62 mph acceleration in 4.7 seconds and a top speed of 165 mph.
