I would be amazed if Ford made a special 1.6 L EcoBoost engine without direct injection. The Escape and the Fusion's 1.6 EcoBoost use direct injection. It's most likely a typo on the specs. page.

ECOBOOST TECHNOLOGY: DIRECT INJECTION IS COOL

Direct fuel injection is one of the key enabling technologies of Ford’s EcoBoost strategy to deliver advancements in fuel economy of up to 20 percent without sacrificing the performance customers want. Paired with turbocharging, direct injection gives the new 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine in the Lincoln MKS the power and torque of a 4.6-liter V-8 with the fuel economy of a V-6.

Direct injection uses high-pressure fuel injectors to spray a fine mist of fuel directly into each cylinder. This precisely controlled fuel delivery improves the engine’s transient response, contributes to improved fuel economy and enables improved emissions, particularly at cold start. The EcoBoost engine reduces CO2 emissions by 15 percent.

Like the spray from an atomizer bottle one might use to keep cool in the summer, the fine mist generated by each solenoid-controlled injector’s six tiny outlet holes helps to create a well-mixed air-fuel mixture. It also cools the incoming air, helping to reduce the potential for engine knock
