Alright, I am trying to figure this out but seems there is different information out there. Someone around here must know something. I saw a report or rumor that Ford was making the 9 speed an 8 speed. Does anyone know the truth behind that? I also read that small cars should be getting this first. Wondering what that means, especially since the Fiesta may be axed here. If anybody can shed some light on this I would appreciate it. I am being asked by some folks who are looking at buying small/medium size car within the next 6 months and I have no clue.
One thing is for sure, Lincoln desperately needs this transmission. There are not a whole lot of luxury makes rocking a 6 speed these days
