Hi Just Tom,

suss6052 does a great job explaining the difference below; you may also find it valuable to download the Owner's Manual to answer any additional questions you may have: https://owner.ford.com/servlet/Conte...OwnerGuidePage

If putting it into S without touching the switch the car remains in sport shift automatic mode which uses gears 1-5, and more aggressively downshifts on braking to bring the engine speed up to keep the car in the powerband.

Powershift is Ford's trademarked name for the dual clutch automated manual transmission (DCT).

The Titanium if it is an auto will have the PowerShift DPS6 with the Selectshift feature.

The base S/SE with the Powershift transmission only have a L range instead of a sport mode as well as a hill grade assist switch that locks the car out of 6th gear instead of the manual shift switch.
Thanks for the great info, suss6052!
