The Ford Focus RS’s Clever the new AWD System of Ford Focus RS is likely to be used in other performance vehicles
The engineers at Ford make sure that their designing aspirations do not upset the all powerful accounts of the Blue Oval. This being the fact, a surprise awaited the release of the new Focus RS, which was given an extremely intelligent all-wheel-drive system. Imagine the costs that might have occurred in modifying the Focus with a front-drive to accept the AWD.
Some of the executives present at the launch came up with some help in this, though no official word came forthwith, that the company is likely to spread this technology to some of the top performance vehicles produced within the Ford Group.
The European VP for product development of Ford drawn our attention to the past presentation thread and what the company has used to present the fast Fords in the years passed by and the same technologies are seen nowadays in the mainstream vehicles have been derived from them.
Ford is not the first entrant into this party. What official description came for the Rear-Drive-Unit of Focus is quite similar to the Land Rover technology of the “Active Driveline” of the rear axle has been utilized in the high performance vehicles of the Range Rover Evoque. Twin electronic controlled clutches are used by both the brands in the rear axle to distribute thrust to the rear wheels. Both can perform the similar side-to-side torque vectoring deployment.
GKN Driveline of Sweden makes the Land Rover’s system, and it is named as the “Twinster”. According to Ford, it has worked with the GKN while developing he RS but we are not able to confirm whether the same system implies in the model or some other system of the same trait. Ford sources however declined to give a reply though we were extremely nice with them however it appears the time for the technology has arrived.
