What happened to the stick in the Foci?

Why not a stick? For the Stang, what is it a 331 or 347? Let me see, huh.

The trans isn't a normal torque convertor automatic transmission, it's a dual clutch automated manual.

So, if you treat it like a manual that shifts itself, you'll understand it's behaviour a lot better.
