2015 Ford Mustang Transmission Options

Ford hasn't announced what the official 2015 Ford Mustang transmission options will be like. However I believe we will need a paddle shift dual clutch transmission (DCT) or optional six speed manual transmission for higher trim Mustangs such as the GT, GT500 & Shelby GT500. Base model and lower trim Mustangs should come with a traditional automatic transmission.

Sadly, this will be true for most of the higher powered models. The DCT will be much more better at shifting and transitioning the power from the engine than any other humans. Its only a matter of time till the domestics start catching on if they aren't on that card.

Funny you bring that up just look at the super cars like the nissan skyline gtr and new porshe 911s that are coming out they don't even offer a manual option. But the cost of one in the mustangs price range might be an issue though.

Well, if you kept up with auto news you would have known that even the dodge dart has a dct transmission and that thing is only like $25,000. So why can't a mustang have one too.

You sissies can calm down now.

If they ever will start using the DCT it will probably be only in the GT or higher models. These things are not cheap by any means. the one in the dodge dart is a cheap one that is dealing with issues of its own right now.i wouldn't exactly compare it to the ones in the porshes and jap crap.

good point, and the new dodge dart is just a compact sedan with a little performance. it's a good reason to say why a specific car should get DCT.

IMO, if the mustang is going to be any fun, especially with it's ecoboost 4 and 6 cylinder engines, a DCT would complement these engines quite nicely, no one will complain with the fuel efficiency and fun they have.

LSD should also be standard.

LSD + DCT + EcoBoost four cylinder engine in a mustang just might make it an FR-S competitor, along with the Genesis 2.0T and others a like.

Hopefully Ford does include a DCT, will be a good move on their part.

A DCT would be a great addition since the four cylinder turbo is some what performance orient. the new mustangs weight could be a concern if your comparing it to the FR-S. But it would be a nice race to see.
