Both of my vehicles are stick. They've already phased out standards in pickup trucks in the u.s. the Tacoma and Colorado have the option, but those are mid-sized. The only full size truck you can get with a manual in the states, last time I checked, is a ford f-250 or larger only with a diesel. The f-250's and up had the standard option with the gas engines untill 2011 when they changed the engines. Chevy trucks nixed the standard after 07 (except for diesels) f-150's after 03 were only auto and I have no idea about dodges. Most mid sized cars are only available with auto. It actually amazes me that the new ford fusion is available in stick, and the first few years of the ford escape (04-06 i think) had it as an option. Luckily though, smallers cars still come standard with a standard. Although, I believe in the next decade it'll become an option that will cost more.
