Following on the heels of the Shelby GT350’s debut last month at the LA Auto Show, Ford is now rumored to be bringing a hotter GT350R to Detroit in addition to the next F-150 Raptor and possibly the Focus RS.
There’s a rumor circulating that Ford has some big “performance” debuts planned for the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, which is just a month away. Following on the heels of the Shelby GT350‘s debut last month at the LA Auto Show, Ford is now rumored to be bringing a hotter GT350R to Detroit in addition to the next F-150 Raptor and possibly the Focus RS.
We’ll start with the GT350R. The GT350R is expected to be a more track friendly version of the GT350, which means it will likely get upgraded brakes and tires, some aerodynamic upgrades. If the GT350 is Ford’s answer to the Camaro ZL1, then the GT350R is its answer to the Camaro Z/28.
Since the new F-150 is already on its way to showrooms, its only a matter of time until we see the new aluminum bodied F-150 Raptor. There aren’t many details, but it could debut next month.
Lastly there is also a possibility that the high-performance versions of the Fiesta and Focus could debut in Detroit. A facelifted version of the Fiesta ST is rumored to debut, but the more exciting rumor is that the much talked about Focus RS could also make an appearance. The Focus RS is rumored to be getting the same 2.3L turbocharged four-cylinder engine as the new Mustang.
