Ford-GM: Rare Partnership Can Give Mustang A Boost

By  | 

It is not often do we get to see Ford and General Motors partnering up to achieve a common goal. Both carmakers are bitter rivals in the automotive industry and when they work together to develop something, it has to be good.

The latest collaboration between Ford and GM saw the development of a brand new 10-speed automatic gearbox. GM has already revealed that the transmission will be debuting with the next-gen Chevrolet Camaro ZL1.

As for Ford, they shared that the 10-speed unit will be released to 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 Ford Mustang.

The 10-speed gearbox is capable of handling massive power and this will allow Ford to further refine the car to generate more ponies. In addition to that, the 10-speed automatic will be more precise when gear changing and this will no doubt improve on the performance of the Mustang.

The obvious says that the 10-speed automatic unit will see the Mustang returning even better 0-60mph timing and we can’t wait to find out more about it. Are you excited?
