Do you think the Mustang will ever feature a dual clutch automatic transmission?

Maybe the S550 will have one?

Because the automatic in the 5.0 sucks...

I doubt it seeing how Ford is going about things. My guess is a traditional automatic transmission and option manual.

You never know. It could be a possibility. Ford might want to spice things up in the upcoming future, seeing how the copetitors might be in to the DCT tranny too it would hurt to have one but you would never catch me finger blasting...

I would say if not 2020 just a little before you will see a shortage in manuals when the dct bandwagon really begins to convert people.

when the cost comes down for sure. Right now Ford doesnt even have a DCT in ANYTHING, I'm sure they're working on developing one but ATM the cost doesnt justify putting it in a cheap performance vehicle like the S550.

When the Corvette gets one the Mustang will get one.

Good point, considering that they dont have DCT in anything, would you say that they'd rather "debut" DCT in their premium brand, Lincoln, then have it trickle down to Ford?

they should just borrow a DCT rather than develop their own. It'll likely cost much less. Ford needs to learn from GM and Dodge and acquire smaller companies that have access to more tech.

Even the petty Dodge Dart has a DCT. Not a great one. but still a DCT nonetheless.

The Ford Focus has it, but it's been having a ton of issues. At least they can build off of it's tech and apply it properly to the mustangs powerplant and any other vehicles that use the same engine
