No more Manual Transmission !!!
I've driven a manual all of my life, truck, Jeep, VW, etc. and find out that Ford doesn't put a manual with the diesel option....WTF?
It's been a while since I've researched new trucks, obviously.
Are the automatics that good? I always thought the manual tranny was supposed to be better in nearly every way: cheaper, less weight, less maintenance, better pulling power, better MPG. The only downside -- you have to shift gears, which is not a problem for me.
Dodge Ram is the only one now putting a manual with their diesel. But I've always liked the Ford products I've bought.
What do y'all think about driving these diesel automatics?
