Default 2018+ Ecoboost and port injection?

I have a feeling this is a really stupid question, but need to ask anyway.
I am trying to decide between a 2017 and a 2018 Yellow Mustang Convertible. A salesperson told me the 2018 Ecoboosts now have port injection as well as direct injection. Is this true?
I have a feeling the answer is no. I read something about the GTs having port injection as well as direct, but I don't think the same is true for Ecoboosts. Am I wrong?

Also is the 10 speed really that bad on the Ecoboosts? Too choppy or is the 6 speed on the 2017s better?

I used to have a red Mustang GT convertible and now going back to Mustangs again...possible. Car hunting.

Negative ghost rider. Details below are for 2019 but the 2018 would either be the same or move up, not move backwards. (mentions PFDI which is the Port and Direct inject systems) (only mentions Direct Inject)

Can't say anything about the transmissions, no experience.

this is a late reply..

I dont know about the port + direct injection questions.

the 10 speed is a big improvement over the 6 speed auto.

The 2.3 Ecoboost I4 does not have both, their bigger ecoboost motors do:
3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 in the 2017 F-150 Raptor flying pickup and the GT supercar
2.7-liter Ecoboost V6, F150
5.0 in the 2018+ Mustang.
3.3-liter V-6 in the F150

Ford currently is the dominant player with what it calls dual-fuel, high-pressure direct injection (DI)
and lower-pressure port injection (PI). Applications include turbocharged and naturally aspirated V-6 and
V-8 gasoline engines—four in all—ranging in size from 2.7 to 5.0 liters. The 2017 F-150 Raptor flying
pickup and the GT supercar both are powered by new 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6s so equipped. Ground-bound
F-150s also rely heavily on this technology with a dual-fueled base 3.3-liter V-6 and optional EcoBoost
2.7- and 3.5-liter V-6s. Ford’s most recently announced application thus far is the new 5.0-liter V-8 that
will power the 2018 Mustang GT.
