Efficient six-speed transmissions

Efficient six-speed transmissions  - Overview - Lincoln MKS

The 2013 Lincoln MKS is equipped with two versions of the six-speed SelectShift AutomaticЩ transmission, both with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. The 3.7-liter Ti-VCT V6 uses the 6F-50. The more powerful 3.5-liter EcoBoost uses the heavy-duty 6F-55 which benefits from high-energy friction materials, a larger ring gear and a specific torque converter to handle the high torque output of the twin-turbo V6.

These gearboxes offer Lincoln MKS drivers the choice of fully automatic operation or manual control. Intuitive to operate, a squeeze back on either paddle will deliver an upshift, while a gentle push forward on either paddle will induce a matched-rev downshift. Unlike some competitor transmissions, SelectShift won't second guess the driver with an override shift. The manual function is truly controlled by the driver.
