Subaru WRX Is Now Falling Way Behind

By  | 

While the Subaru WRX has been doing well on the market it is now starting to fall way behind and this means that the Ford Focus RS may be able to take over from it.

The engine in the Subaru WRX is the 2 litre and this comes with the 6 speed manual gearbox offering up 268 horse power. The Ford Focus RS is arriving in the US and it will come with an engine that should be better as it will offer more horses.

The Ford Focus RS should offer the 2.3 litre EcoBoost, which is the same one that was in the Ford Mustang. However in the RS the engine is expected to be getting a boost and this means it may offer around 235 horses.

The boosted engine may mean that the Ford Focus RS will travel from standing still to 62mph and it will take just 4.7 seconds. The top speed is expected to be in the region of around 165mph. The driving experience should come with improvements as it offers the Drift mode.

We are expecting the Ford Focus RS to make its way to the US soon and the price tag should be around $36, 605. Of course we are going to have to wait to find out if it has what it needs to beat the Subaru WRX.
