Efficient six-speed transmissions

Efficient six-speed transmissions  - Overview - Lincoln MKT

Lincoln MKT 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, and the more powerful 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 uses the heavy-duty 6F-55. This transmission features high-energy friction materials, a larger ring gear and a specific torque converter that optimize the 6F-55 to handle the high-torque output of the twin-turbo 3.5-liter.

These gearboxes offer the driver a choice between fully automatic operation and 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 competitive transmissions, SelectShift won't second guess the driver with an override shift. The manual control is truly controlled by the driver.
