2017 Ford Focus RS driving modes
Most of the Ford Focus RS options are not performance oriented. Instead, no matter how you choose to build out your RS, you know you are getting arguably the best performance hatchback ever made. It is worth mentioning that unlike other levels of the Focus lineup, there isn’t a sedan option.
One of the most interesting features of the 2017 Ford Focus RS is the selectable driving modes. This way you can drive the Ford Focus RS the way you want to when you want to. The Driving modes are as follows:
Normal Mode: This is the mode you want for everyday driving. It adjusts the power distribution and the shift points to provide a driving experience that is still powerful but also extremely drivable.
Sport Mode: When you want to kick things up a notch, this driving mode is the one you need. It lets your engine achieve the next level of performance and changes the AWD power distribution for a sportier feel.
Track Mode: This is a track only mode, and it kicks everything into high gear. The suspension is stiffer, and the stability control is set to prioritize performance over comfort.
Drift Mode: All-wheel drive cars are not known for their drifting ability, but with the track only Drift Mode, more power is shifted to the back wheels making this Focus drift like no other that came before. Use with caution.
