The 2006 World Rally Championship season began on January 20 with the 74th Monte Carlo Rally. Finlandmarker's Marcus Grönholm, in a Ford Focus WRC, took the win ahead of Francemarker's Sébastien Loeb. After the Swedish Rally ended with the same top-two, Loeb and Kronos Total Citroën went on to win five rallies in a row. Despite an injury in a mountain-biking accident before the Rally of Turkey, Loeb secured his third drivers' title, whereas Ford won their first manufacturers' title since 1979.

Rule changes banned active differentials as well as water injection, as well as mandating that teams must re-use cars and engines on selected ‘pairs’ of events.
