Performance & Efficiency Technology

Advanced 2.3-litre EcoBoost Engine Technology

The 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine's revolutionary technology incorporates direct fuel injection, twin independent variable camshaft timing and a twin-scroll turbocharger.

Tuned and calibrated specifically for the Focus RS, the result is: maximum power of 350 PS and maximum torque of 440 Nm (470 Nm overboost).

Excellent low-end responsiveness is matched by powerful mid-range pull. And the free-revving top-end is set to a maximum limit of 6,900 rpm.

A sophisticated transmission for lightning-fast gear changes

Engine power is maximised by an optimised six-speed manual transmission. A shorter gear lever and revised mechanism are designed to provide swift, accurate shifts.

Both the transmission and clutch have been upgraded with stronger, more durable components to cope with this increased torque output.

Use less fuel with Auto Start-Stop

When you stop at traffic lights or your vehicle is idling in a queue, this technology can automatically switch off the engine (while still supplying power to essentials like the headlights, air-conditioning, radio and the Ford SYNC system). When you're ready to move, just depress the clutch and select first gear as usual, or press the accelerator on an automatic, and the system restarts.

Auto Start-Stop is particularly effective in town and city streets, where it can cut fuel consumption by up to 10%.
