The RS Mexico used the same strengthened bodyshell as the other RSs but its striping mirrored the Sport. It was powered by a 95bhp, 1.6-litre Pinto engine, coupled to a Type E four-speed all-synchro box. Internally it was very similar to the basic RS 1800, using a centre console and clocks. Sports steel wheels were standard, although many examples were fitted with the optional four-spoke cast alloys. Two years after it was released in 1976. , Ford discontinued the Mexico replacing it with a low-spec RS2000.
