Either way, very exciting transmission option. I could even handle it, and I'm excited to hear how they do the shut down when idling option - how long will it delay from when you release the brake pedal to when your car starts going?...
Yeh , I think that is a mistake, as in another article (same site ) it claims Ford says 9% for the new DC 6 speed trans total fuel improvement . which is pretty impressive, you will get better performance and economy .
