The option was there until the 12B37 update was released this summer

Hopefully I can clear up your questions about Hill Start Assist. First of all, yes, all 2012 DCT-equipped vehicles will have Hill Start Assist. Secondly, you should be able to turn Hill Start Assist off or on using the menu system. Please refer to page 20 of your Owner's Manual (5th Printing) for further information. You can download a copy of your Owner's Manual here: https://owner.ford.com/servlet/Conte...OwnerGuidePage

Let me know if you have any additional questions. I'm happy to help!

Today when I went into the menus to turn off traction control I noticed that I don't have the Hill Assist menu option as shown in the manual. So, I'm assuming I don't have it. But, everywhere I read about it talks about it being standard equipment. I live in a flat area (Texas) so I haven't had occasion to use it if I did have it.
