Transmission

Anyone heard anything about if and when Ford will make a change in the trans. behind the 6.4? I am a Ford man and don't keep up with the other brands. I was in my buddies new Chevy yesterday and saw the manual shifting capability in the auto trans. I've been wishing Ford would do that in these trucks for years! I come close to buying a 6 speed every time for the few times I wish I had it but always end up with an auto because I don't want to shift gears the rest of the time. If they could add the manual shift capabilities for the times I have a heavy load in the hills, I would go get a new truck!

On a separate note, I think the dual climate control is awesome in the Chevy too!

Cool, I didn't realize Ford had that as well. If they will add the trans feature I want, I may have to get a new one!

Ford doesnt currenty offer the Manual Upshift , well atleast like Cheby, in the Ford you still have to move your shifter lever to accomplish shifting an automatic manually. There have been some revisions made to the Torqueshift that is mounted behind the 6.4 like a standard tripple lock convertor ect...
