Ford Powershift - which models are torque converter?

Having lost patience with the continual problems with the dry-pack Powershift on my Ford Focus, I have decided to replace it with a 2016 Focus automatic. How can I tell on the forecourt whether the transmission is a dry-pack or a replacement torque-converter gearbox?

Only the Focus 1.0 Ecoboost 125 and Focus 1.5 Ecoboost 150 so far come with the six-speed torque converter.
