Shift 2: Unleashed

The Escort RS Cosworth appears in Shift 2: Unleashed as a Retro Road class car with a $17,500 price tag. It is featured with a D 190 performance rating and a 2.74 handling rating.

It can out-accelerate rivals with similar ratings and is notable for its stable driving behaviour in corners. However, it lacks in top speed.

Due to being the cheapest all-wheel drive car, the Escort RS Cosworth may be a suitable option for a starter car with grippy handling and good acceleration.
