Besides the Taurus has a dct that doesn't have nearly the problems the Focus has. They could make one that works if they tried. I would guess the Taurus works better due to the low end torque increase. The Taurus is also available with same basic engine as the st. They simply don't want to make an auto and I think better of them because of it

If you want an auto that bad spend the extra 4000 and get a Taurus
The Taurus has a traditional automatic transmission. A 6F35 with the 2.0 L ecoboost, and the 6F50 on the 3.5 and 3.5L twin turbo ecoboost V6.
