This is mostly due to cost constraints and demographic (or perception of this car within its demographic)...In America, we mostly have people like @RS ATX
(quoted below) who doesn't want extra stuff on his performance car that will raise the price. Multiple internal studies at Ford have most likely concluded that he is the majority demographic in this country, hence, no extra crap that will raise the price on a car and price it out of some people's hands by placing it at a higher price point than the competition.
Europe, on the other hand, considers this almost a luxury car for the every day man and is willing to pay extra for creature comforts. Pretty sure it's just as simple as that.
