The Subaru WRX used to be on top of most of the competition but now the vehicle is dropping behind and soon the Ford Focus RS may overtake it.
The Subaru WRX comes with the 2 litre engine which offers up the manual gearing with 6 speeds and 268 horses. The Ford Focus RS is going to be arriving on the roads in the US soon and this is going to offer up more.
We are expecting the Ford Focus RS to arrive with a 2.3 litre engine and this happens to be the same engine that is seen in the Ford Mustang. Of course when it is put into the RS it is going to get an overhaul and it is possible that it will offer 345 horse power.
The Ford Mustang RS engine will allow the vehicle to go from standing still to 62mph in 4.7 seconds and it should offer up a top speed of 165mph. The vehicle will offer a Drift Mode, which is going to bring a driving experience that is improved.
The Ford Focus RS will have a price tag of $36, 605 when it arrives in the US, but whether it is going to have what is needed to take over and get ahead of the Subaru WRX we will have to wait and see.
