Ford unveil new models at Geneva Motor Show

Ford powered into the 2015 Geneva Motor Show with its most technologically advanced performance model range ever, including the global debut of the all-new Ford Focus RS high-performance hatchback, and the European premiere of the all-new Ford GT supercar.

“The Ford performance vehicle line-up on stretches from a compact hatch to a supercar, and with 12 models to come through 2020, this promises to be a vintage era for driving enthusiasts,” said Jim Farley, Ford Motor Company executive vice president and president Europe, Middle East and Africa.

“Ford also is delivering exciting new products such as the all-new Ford Edge SUV, and the new upscale Vignale product and ownership experience that will further expand our appeal,” Farley added.

The third-generation Focus RS performance hatch pioneers the innovative Ford Performance All-Wheel-Drive system, and is the first RS to offer selectable Drive Modes – including industry-first Drift Mode – and Launch Control.

The all-new Ford GT supercar sets new standards for Ford innovation through performance with light-weighting, aerodynamics and EcoBoost technology.

Also on display for the first time in Geneva are two all-new EcoBoost-powered Ford motorsport vehicles that make their competitive debuts this year. Powered by the award-winning 1.0-litre Ford EcoBoost engine, the Ford Fiesta R2 rally car based on the road-going Ford Fiesta is set to be the first 1.0-litre vehicle homologated in its competition class.

The MSA Formula single-seat, purpose-built race car is a natural evolution from the successful Formula Ford vehicle.
