GhiaFan I know Ford North America does not roll like this, but Ford does have the right stuff in the parts bin to take on the other makers entering a trim level between the mass market Focus and ST. Ford N.A. could bring out a Titanium X trim with the 1.6l EcoBoost 180hp, 6 speed manual , sort of like the Euro Focus Zetec S.
Example of the upgrades - more powerful version of the 1.6-litre Ecoboost (+20hp etc), a bodykit , sport suspension, LED tail lamps, unique rims, & offer some cabin upgrades such as sportier front seats and a slightly better overall standard of trim.

whynotthinkwhynot Eh.... Titanium competition. It might be rather pricey after you add an AT, and HIDs. Still waiting to see about an R/T that will complete with the ST. Apparently so is ChryCo/Fiat.
