Do I Have Knock Sensors?

Hello All,

I am new to this forum just joined and a first time ford focus owner, in fact a first time owner of a new vehicle above the year 2000. I would like to know if my 2013 Ford Focus SE with the 2.0L GDI Engine Direct Injected w/ Flex Fuel has knock sensors, reason I am asking is I fill up premium 91 and want to fill up premium 94 but a friend advised against it saying it will wreck the engine? I did a search and know this has been answered for older models saying there is no real difference. However the manual of the 2013 SE says "Recommended Fuel 87" but doesn't mention anything about premium gas not being a problem. I did notice on fords site it said achieved using "Premium Gas" so is it alright to use it then or will it wreck the engine if I fill 94 Octane.

Thanks in advance for the help and look forward to being part of the community still getting used to the powershift transmission too.
