Apart from a few minor modifications to Canadian standards, the car is identical to the model presented overseas.


It is true that the price is high except that it is a car without compromise. The RS exists in a declination but it is so well equipped that no one could ask for more. The engine is powered by a 2.3-liter engine with EcoBoost technology. At first sight this engine seems modest but be careful because this engine develops an impressive 350 hp. with 350 pound of torque. No wonder the speedometer displays up to 300 km per hour.
