Ford Pulls Out All the Stops for Spectacular 2017 Focus RS

If you're on the hunt for a high-octane hatchback for your next vehicular purchase, we here at Mike Molstead Motors think you may well meet your match in Ford's, the 2017 Focus RS.

And what, exactly, makes us say that?

Allow Road Test Editor Dan Ilika an opportunity to elucidate; his assessment of the Focus RS is as follows:

Easily its most alluring feature, the Focus RS's turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine is altogether exceptional.

Good for a gargantuan 350 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque, the Focus RS receives an athletic, six-speed manual transmission and all-wheel drive as standard.

And, yet, for all its muscularity, the Focus RS still manages to return pretty decent fuel economy, with EPA estimates checking in at 22 mpg combined (19 city/25 highway).

So, what's the hold-up, loyal reader? The time is now to experience the splendor of this speedster. As such, we invite you to pop by our Charles City, IA facility, whereupon we'll happily arrange a test drive in the Focus RS, or any other Ford model that's aroused your intrigue.
