this makes me curious about how they will change design.

Im guessing they will add some body work and possibly a spoiler. Just some stuff to make it look more aggressive.

Motor Trend has more on the RS...

Quote:
As for the motivator, the RS will get a goosed-up version of the 2.3-liter turbo I-4 found in both the Lincoln MKC and the EcoBoost Mustang. Power? How does 350 horsepower grab you? It grabs us right about you know where. And yes, thatís more power than the 310 hp Mustang will make. We think thatís very cool. Whatís also cool is that the Focus RS is going to scare Volkswagen and the soon-to-be-released 296-hp Golf R. The new U.S.-bound RS will also hopefully be the kick in the pants Subaru needs to uncork the STI and get its 2.0-liter turbo up into the 350 hp range where it belongs. Expect to see the Focus RS debut this spring at the Geneva show.
I just don't know if they have the commitment to fight Ford in this manner...

Yeah all the typical stuff.

Wider fenders and 1/4 panels
An aggressive facelift.
different wheels
and hopefully a color scheme that's unique to it along with a diffuser

or just look at what they did to the SRT 8 300 when it comes to styling and you can get a sense of what they're going to do

That was nice, but I was thinking maybe this time they can go a bit more extreme with it.

Extreme is necessary. The playbook should be GTI, nothing flashy or over the top, just a badge and a feeling...

Earlier this year, Dodge announced that it would have a thorough remake of the Dart in 2016, with a Dart SRT4 to be launched at the end of that year. The 2.4 now used in most Darts may be supplemented or replaced by a new 2.0 liter turbocharged Hurricane engine pumping out at least 220 hp (rather than the 2.4’s 172 hp).
so we're unlikely to see ANYTHING until after that... Then again if the 100 is expected to be more pedestrian maybe we get nothing at all...

It's going to be a long wait, that's for sure. Another thing to consider is how they want to go about making SRT models available, if they want a wide range of SRT models or just a few.
