Just Add Track: The 2017 Ford Focus RS by ROUSH Performance


“The Focus RS is a very unique platform that lends itself to multiple directions in performance -- we’re excited to modify it into our vision of an ultimate track car with power, handling, and styling!” – Jack Roush Jr.

Ford has built an incredible vehicle with the 2017 Focus RS. It features aggressive styling, niche-leading performance, and is a great value. In an effort to raise the bar, ROUSH Performance has transformed the RS by leveraging our rich racing heritage and world-class design, performance, and manufacturing capabilities to build a track-themed Focus RS. The lines between design and functional performance converge within the ROUSH Focus RS and its transformation into a true street/race car.

The ROUSH Focus RS is powered by a 2.3L EcoBoost® Short Block (Ford Performance Part #M6009-23EB), with an enhanced ROUSH Cooling System, ROUSH Active Exhaust flowing through to black ceramic-coated tips, and custom ROUSH calibration producing over 500 horsepower at the crankshaft.

Keeping the ROUSH Focus RS planted firmly to the earth is a ROUSH TrakPak 3-Way Adjustable Suspension System with Camber Plates by KW Suspensions. Continental ExtremeContact Sport tires 255/35/R19 (available to the public on February 1, 2017) are wrapped around ROUSH TrakPak Lightweight 19”x9” Forged Wheels by Weld.

The ROUSH Focus RS’s body is adorned with a ROUSH TrakPak Body Kit featuring a Front Splitter, Rear Wing, Side Splitters, and Rear Diffuser. ROUSH Hood Heat Extractors and Ambient Grille Lighting have been added, as well as the iconic ROUSH Windshield Banner. The custom RS has been wrapped in XPEL Stealth Paint Protectant Film and features custom graphic stripes, custom-painted side rearview mirror caps, and a front tow hook.

Inside, ROUSH has added a black ROUSH Shifter Ball and ROUSH Performance Pedals. The final result is a ROUSH Focus RS that has been truly “race-injected” for track-ready performance.Focus RS Video
