How many 2016 Ford Focus RSs were made?

I have a friend who recently purchased a used 2016 Ford Focus RS after looking for one for years. I was surprised it was so difficult to get his hands on! Any idea how many 2016 Ford Focus RS were made?

Your confusion makes sense—the 2016 Ford Focus RS is a high-performance vehicle, but was marketed to a very niche demographic! There were 4,141 Ford Focus RSs made in 2016. Here’s what makes it such a sought-after car.
The 2016 Ford Focus RS is a high-performing version of the Ford Focus. With just a single trim level available in this model year, the RS features a 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine with 350 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. It also has a plethora of performance-enhancing technologies, such as a sport-tuned suspension, torque vectoring control, and even a drift mode, making it an attractive sports car.
The 2016 Focus RS also looks much sportier than the standard Focus, drawing even more allure from car enthusiasts. Its large rear spoiler and sporty body kit gives the 2016 Focus RS an aggressive appearance. It feels like a sports car inside as well, as it has RS-branded sport seats, stainless steel pedals, and RS-branded door sills. The 2016 Focus RS received many positive reviews, but Ford stopped producing the Focus RS in 2020.
One more thing—keep in mind that your Ford Focus RS insurance costs will be higher than for a baseline Ford Focus due to the added performance features.
