That's the Zetec-S body kit, with the mesh look on the grilles, but they aren't really more open than that of the standard car since its no more powerful than the basic models, and therefore doesn't have a need to cool more than a 2.0L i4 gdi, the 1.6L EcoBoost or up to the 2.0L duratorq diesel. Those are very much not open at all.
