Maybe it doesn't. I thought this feature was almost universal but maybe not. Seems odd that Ford would go through the trouble of installing active grille shutters and not this, but maybe it's harder to implement on cars with manual gearboxes or DCTs. There are are posts here that seem to conclude the Focus has this feature, but maybe it isn't the "aggressive" fuel cut-off described in the Ford document.
