Ford-GM: Partnership Can Give Mustang EcoBoost A Double Boost

By  | 

Ford and GM may not see eye-to-eye on many things but when the situation calls for it, the two companies can actually work together. Their latest collaboration saw the release of a brand new 10-speed automatic gearbox that is the first of its kind in the automotive world.

GM has already revealed that the transmission will be debuting with the next-gen Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 whereas Ford is going to bring out the transmission with the F-150 Raptor. Following that, Ford has pledged to release the 10-speed gearbox to their performance cars and this will obviously include the Mustang.

According to Ford, the 10-speed gearbox is so intelligent that it can offer better power management and more precise shifting. This will help optimize their performance cars for speed, power and even fuel economy.

It does not need confirmation that the 10-speed automatic transmission will be offered with the Mustang but we don’t expect it to happen at least until Ford launches the next-gen Shelby GT500.
