The next generation of the Ford Focus RS might be powered by a 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine that will produce around 350 hp.

The latest report about the next-gen Ford Focus RS comes from PistonHeads who talked to Len Urwin, the engineering manager of the European performance division Team RS. He admitted that the new Focus RS is likely to get a clever active front limited slip differential developed by GKN, the same British engineering company that was in charge of the BMW M active differential.

Under the hood it could get a more powerful variant of the 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine seen in the warm Focus ST, the same power unit installed in the Radical SR3 SL where it pumps out 300 hp (224 kW). However, there are bigger chances of seeing a 2.3-liter EcoBoost with about 350 hp (261 kW) that is currently being developed in the United States.

Most likely, the new generation of the Ford Focus RS will be sold exclusively as a five-door model and it will be available at first in the United States.
