How about this for the American automotive industry? Ford shook hands with General Motors as the two rivals decided to work together in developing a brand new transmission. Today, the transmission has been released and it is a 10-speed automatic gearbox.

Both Ford and GM revealed that the new gearbox will be offered to their range topping cars and it is engineered to improve on the performance and fuel economy of their vehicles. GM has already shared that the 10-speed shifter will be debuting on the upcoming Chevrolet Camaro ZL1.

As for Ford, the Raptor will be the first vehicle in their family to run on the 10-speed automatic gearbox. Ford added that they will also offer the 10-speed unit to the Mustang but that will happen at a slightly later date.

After seeing the power figures of the Camaro ZL1 with the 10-speed automatic gearbox, we have reason to believe that the Mustang is in for a big power upgrade one it receives the 10-speed unit. The details on this are expected to surface later this year.
