Approaching its big United States release date in the spring, Ford has been slowly revealing more stats for the upcoming 2016 Ford Focus RS, a vehicle that is promising to be one of the hottest sedans on the market.
Most recently, Ford announced that the 2016 Focus RS will be able to accelerate from zero to highway speeds of 62 mph in a mere 4.7 seconds, an impressive feat for sure.
Additionally, the vehicle will potentially be able to hit speeds of up to 165 mph, though that’s certainly something you will not want to test on your local highway. This makes the 2016 Ford Focus RS the fastest RS model ever.
What do you think of the 2016 Ford Focus RS speed stats? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below, and while we wait for launch day, consider paying us a visit at Shults Ford of Harmarville to check out our current Focus models.
The last week of September is National Dog Week, and as such, we’d like to remind you about one of the biggest safety concerns for dog and car owners.
It’s never, ever safe to leave your dog locked in a parked car when the weather outside is warm. Inside the car, the temperate can rise incredibly quickly, which tragically results in the death of many pets each year, via heat exhaustion.
Even if you’re just going to make a quick trip into the store, the risk is certainly not worth it. In just minutes – even with the windows partially opened – the interior of the vehicle can hit temperatures of 120 degrees Fahrenheit, fast.
If you are in a parking lot or elsewhere, and you see a dog locked in a car on a hot day, call the authorities, immediately. If you’re nearby a store, it might even be a good idea to alert them so that they can make an announcement.
As we approach winter, the weather will become chillier. But until then – be safe! Never leave your dog in a parked car.
