Unlikely, the new Escape and C-Max tell me that the focus won't have to look like the Fusion or Fiesta. Besides the Fiesta St looks like the Focus and the Electric Focus already looks like the new Fusion/fiesta.

well don't trust what you read. Here's an example:http://www.kotse.com/home/index.php/...cus-in-bangkok
True it's Bangkok, but damn Ford gives them EVERYTHING that they removed from the US version, plus added BLIS. Thanks for nothing Ford!

this is much of the same equipment found in other markets outside NA... so much for ford's 'one world car' concept. bottom line: ford doesn't wanna step on the toes of the golden egg midsize market, aka, fusion... so.... NA customers don't get all the goodies others do....

It boasts a 20% increase in fuel efficiency than the engine it replaces and is mated to a six-speed Ford PowerShift automatic transmission. A SelectShift Automatic™ functionality option is also available, allowing drivers to manually control gears.
The PowerShift is the DCT...

You're right. I got confused. I was just reading an unsubstantiated post at BOF that Ford plans to drop the DCT. Sorry.

And then this was posted:

I am thinking SYNC will be standard on the "S" for 2014, seeing how it is standard on the 2014 Fiesta S, the Fusion S, and the Taurus SE.
