Ford Mustang to Get 10-Speed Transmission

How does a Ford Mustang with 10 gears sound to you?

Now that the American automaker’s sports car is becoming a global model, Ford is working on ways to make it more appealing in various markets. While the company is clearly preparing high-performance variants such as the Shelby GT500 and the GT350, the company is also working on implementing a 10-speed automatic transmission in the future for those more conscious on fuel economy.

The sixth-generation Mustang will start arriving dealerships in the U.S. at the end of next month and will be available with three different powerplants: a 3.6-liter V6 (300 hp and 279 lb-ft of torque), a 5.0-liter V8 (435 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque) and a 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder (310 hp and 320 lb-ft of torque). All Mustang models will be available with either a six-speed automatic or manual transmission. The company recently announced that it had begun testing the right-hand drive version of the Mustang, the first time the sports car will be going right-hand drive in its history.
