    Hi all. With there being so much interest in the Focus RS, and with everyone suddenly paying an immense amount of attention to the AWD system I thought I'd try to help folks understand it better. We're going to start with the basics.

    What makes up an AWD system?
    The AWD portion of the driveline starts after the transmission. Depending on FWD based or RWD based layout you will find a couple differences in components. In both cases you have two axles, four halfshafts, ...

    Ford is expected to be launching a revised version of the Focus ST soon, but the latest snapshots from our spy photographers at the Nurburgring suggest that the Blue Oval is already working on an even more potent example: the new Focus RS.

A Ford source has confirmed to Road & Track that the next-generation Focus RS is likely to come to North America in extremely limited numbers. Unlike its predecessor, it'll be AWD.

    The old car (shown above) featured a turbocharged inline 5 pushing 305 hp to the front wheels through what Ford called the RevoKnuckle, to reduce what would otherwise be shoulder-dislocating torque steer. The new car wipes the board clean and starts over. In addition to AWD, the RS will be the only Focus to pack Ford's new 2.3-liter Ecoboost four-cylinder, available now in the Lincoln MKC and very soon in the 2015 Mustang.In the Mustang, this engine makes 310 hp, 320 lb-ft of torque. In the just-released Lincoln MKC crossover, the same engine makes 285 hp. In both applications, a twin-scroll turbo is employed. ...
