2016 Ford Focus RS Production Canceled, Remaining Orders Included to 2017 Run

Ford Focus RS

Despite the recognition of Ford Focus RS, it seems Ford will not be able to fulfill the initial demand. As a result, numerous customers now fear that their cars will be delayed.

Ford has cancelled 220 orders for the 2016 Focus RS, bumping them to the 2017 design year run. There’s no clear response as to exactly why model-year 2016 production has been halted, though it appears to be connected to a summer shutdown at Ford’s plant in Saarlouis, Germany, where the Focus RS is constructed.

A Ford representative Dan Jones, reportedly informed a Los Angeles dealer that the factor for the shutdown was financial chaos in Europe, though another Ford spokesperson rejected this in correspondence with TTAC.

Since the Focus RS is an automobile long awaited by enthusiasts, it’s most likely gotten far more pre-orders than a lot of run-of-the-mill Fords. High demand and the amount of interest the Focus RS continues to receive, as well as the unclear thinking behind Ford’s model-year switch, is certainly amounting to some anxiety amongst those excitedly awaiting the delivery of their brand-new Ford hot hatch.
