Selectshift is the S gate on the gear shift lever which also allows for manual shifting through the gears without the use of a clutch pedal with the click of the switch on the gear lever. If putting it into S without touching the switch the car remains in sport shift automatic mode which uses gears 1-5, and more aggressively downshifts on braking to bring the engine speed up to keep the car in the powerband.

Powershift is Ford's trademarked name for the dual clutch automated manual transmission (DCT).

The Titanium if it is an auto will have the PowerShift DPS6 with the Selectshift feature.

The base S/SE with the Powershift transmission only have a L range instead of a sport mode as well as a hill grade assist switch that locks the car out of 6th gear instead of the manual shift switch.
