Why is Titanium not available with manual

So i was going to get a focus , looked at the trims and i was disappointed the titanium trim will not come with manual option , this is weird since European ford offer manual on all trim level , too bad since i don't buy cars with automatics no matter how advanced they are

You can't get SEL with manual either. And an SE optioned out the best you can do is 6 speaker MYFord with sync and sat radio. No touch screen, 10 speaker sony system, one touch up/down window(s?), and SEL cant get the sport package. Titanium and SE you can. Also gotta make sure you get convience package on SE or you won't have cruise contorl or map lights. Not sure what else.

Just have to get the ST if you want high end manual unfortunately

Because like 1% of americans who buy top trim level cars opt for a manual even if its available.

This was predicted by Nostradamus.


Haven't you ever read about Henry Ford saying "They can have any color that they want, so long as it is black."?

Sometimes manufacturers do things like this to reduce costs. Now if you were really nice to someone, I bet a dealer would be more than happy to install a manual transmission for you, maybe even a 6 spd, for a fee.

You can get a manual with the SEL if you live in Canada, I know because that's what I got. I would have went for the Titanium but there is no way I was getting an automatic.....especially one that doesn't even have flappy paddle shifters, but even then, I doubt I would have gotten the auto tranny.

My SEL has two tone (Arctic white) leather heated seats, 8" My Ford Touch, 10 speaker Sony system, one up/down touch windows. The one thing I wanted but couldn't get was sport suspension and 18" wheels. Had to do with 17" polished Alloys.

Doesn't do us any good in America :P

The Sel can be optioned out nearly identical to a Titanium. But wasn't arguing against that at all. SE you can't get to Titanium. SE you can't even get to SEL.

Talk to your dealer about getting the SEL with the manual transmission. After all the cars come out of the same plant.
