That is an old and incomplete list of specific vehicles mentioned that have ADFSO, its basically already been confirmed that the 2012+ Focus does infact have ADFSO based on scangauge readings and reports from Ford engineers.

This was discussed at length here: http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=281522
