Ford accidentally revealed pricing information for the 2016 Ford Focus RS on a half-built configurator we're pretty sure wasn't ready for public release. For a brief period of time, consumers were able to view pricing information for the 2016 Focus RS, which starts at $36,605 after destination fees.
Of course, Ford took down the feature on its consumer website so you can no longer build your own Focus RS. But we were able to find out that standard features on the model include 18-inch painted aluminum wheels, a 10-speaker Sony audio system with HD Radio, and partial leather Recaro seats with RS badging. Some options included navigation, a sunroof, 19-inch wheels, and $1,990 Michelin Cup tires.
Ford's hot hatch ranks in the middle of the pack in terms of pricing. While the 305-hp Subaru WRX STI goes for $35,490, the 292-hp Volkswagen Golf R is priced higher at $37,425. But considering that the Focus RS packs significantly more power than these two competitors, we think it's a bargain. The 2016 Ford Focus RS features a turbocharged 2.3-liter I-4 engine that produces 345 hp and 324 lb-ft of torque, and is paired with all-wheel drive.
