No fog lamps, and not available with rear disk brakes until you opt for the $2700 or so Appearance package vs the $800 or so sticker price for the sport package with the sport seats, those 16" alloy wheels, rear disk brakes on top of the standard fog lamps. Its not exactly a fair trade in my opinion. Especially when they got rid of the beautiful looking (very upscale in my opinion) Stone leather which also would be cooler in the heat than straight black leather.

But that's just another way Ford is taking away the power to choose what you want for 2013 and beyond. Jumble the options matrix to make it seem like you're getting more equipment for less when in reality the base price went up a bunch and they stripped out a bunch of useful features.
