How many 2018 Ford Focus RSs were made?

I found a 2018 Ford Focus RS for sale through a private seller but the asking price seems too high for a used car, even if it is a performance vehicle. Was the 2018 Focus RS released in limited quantities that would make it rare?

Used car shopping, particularly through private sellers, can be tricky to navigate for sure! Research on the prospective vehicle is important, so you’re on the right track.
This vehicle in specific is on the rarer side. Only 1,500 2018 Ford Focus RSs were made during the one-year production. When it was released, it only had one trim level packed full of unique features and specialty branding—the Limited Edition.
The 2018 Ford Focus RS had a starting MSRP of $41,995 so if the seller you’re dealing with is asking for more than that, it might be a shady deal.
There’s nothing worse than feeling like you’ve been taken advantage of by a dealership, especially when making a large purchase like a car. However, you do have options, including reporting the dealership, taking legal action, and even turning to the power of social media.
Hopefully, you find the right vehicle for you soon!
