The MTX-75 was used in the original Focus and every U.S. Focus 5 speed manual since then.

The 6MT in the ST was originally used in the Mondeo behind a turbodiesel engine with slightly different internal gear ratios. The MTX-75 is a Ford gearbox, the MMT6 is another Ford-Getrag gearbox and is layed out internally similarly to the DCT in terms of having two sets of gears in a single case and two final drives, although the MMT6 is older than the DCT.
