Next-Gen Ford Focus RS Could Get the Mustang 2.3L EcoBoost

Less than a month ago, spy photographers gave us our first look at what is believed to be the next-generation Ford Focus RS as it was testing at the Nürburgring, and now Autocar might have some good information as to what that car was packing under the hood.

According to the report, the 2016 Ford Focus RS will be powered by a version of the 2.3-liter inline-four that will be used in the 2015 Ford Mustang. While that engine has officially been rated at 310 hp 320 lb-ft, it sounds like the Focus RS could get some extra tuning to around 330 hp and 324 lb-ft.

Aside from the Mustang-sourced engine, it sounds like Ford had considered going with an all-wheel drive platform, but has chosen to stick with front-drive. A six-speed manual gearbox will be the only, and a new limited-slip differential will help keep all that power under control.

These would all come in addition to other Focus RS upgrades like the sport suspension setup and more aggressive exterior styling. What has yet to really be seen though is whether or not Ford finally plans to bring the Focus RS to the U.S. As the muscle cars wars are heating up to epic levels, it would be nice to see some more hot hatch action here in the States. With the 2015 Subaru WRX STI already on the roads and the all-new Volkswagen Golf R coming soon, there would be plenty of competition for another sport compact to join the mix.

With Ford just having introduced the updated 2015 Ford Focus ST at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, Autocar guesses that this might be a good spot to launch the 2016 Focus RS. Regardless of where it debuts, we probably won’t see it until 2016.

Famed Mustang tuner Shelby America is moving headquarters to Las Vegas, Nevada. Why should you care? Because it won’t be able to fit some of its most special concept cars and prototypes in the new building. As a result, Shelby is selling 14 prototype and concept cars to collectors. Instead of storing these special cars away in the company’s warehouse, Shelby says it would rather see these special one-off models in the hands of Shelby enthusiasts. See the full list of cars and asking prices below.

2013 Shelby Focus Concept: $50,000

Shelby upgraded this Ford Focus ST hot hatch with a whole new Eibach suspension, grippy 18-inch Michelin tires, and Wilwood brakes, while also adding 8 hp to the standard car’s 252 hp. It was shown at the Detroit auto show in 2013 and then went on the Shelby Road tour on its way to the company’s heritage center in Las Vegas.

GOODWOOD, U.K., June 27, 2014 – The 2015 Ford Focus ST makes its global debut today at Goodwood Festival of Speed in the United Kingdom – the ideal venue for showcasing the enhanced driving dynamics of Ford's global performance version of the new Focus.

"Since its debut, Focus ST has been bringing our fun-to-drive DNA to the hot hatch segment with a uniquely Ford blend of driving dynamics, performance and style," said Raj Nair, Ford group vice president, Global Product Development. "Now, with improved dynamics, an updated suspension, new styling and a more sophisticated cabin, we expect the 2015 Focus ST will remain the hottest hatch worldwide."

Focus ST will benefit from technology and craftsmanship first revealed earlier this year for the new Ford Focus – the world's best-selling global nameplate. Ford introduced the first Focus ST in 2002; since then, more than 140,000 examples have been sold in more than 40 countries worldwide.

Refinements for the upgraded 2015 Focus ST include:
