<span lang="EN-US">The current generation Ford Focus RS is about to get a whole lot of extra traction, with the 2018 version set to feature a standard limited-slip differential.
Limited to just 1,500 units in the U.S. and Canada, the entire crop of cars destined for North America will include a factory-fitted mechanical LSD up front to reduce wheel spin and improve cornering performance. Supplied by Quaife, the LSD will complement what is already a stellar drivetrain that includes a performance-tuned all-wheel drive system and active torque vectoring.
The decision to fit the Focus RS with a limited-slip differential comes following feedback online, with the automaker claiming its team scoured owner forums and enthusiast websites before honing in on the in-demand feature.</span>
