Hi Just Tom,

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!
