The coupe and convertible of restyled Mustang will receive an optional 10-speed automatic transmission, developed in partnership with General Motors. A gearbox will also appear on the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 2017, where it will replace the Porsche PDK and will boast of faster gear changes. At this point it is not known whether it will be offered for the 2.3-liter 4-cylinder turbo engine and 5.0-liter V8 atmospheric unit or only for one of them. According to an earlier report, the 10-step automatic transmission will work in tandem only with bigger engine; EcoBoost in turn will keep running together with 6-speed manual.

Just recently, another report said that the Ford Shelby GT350 coupe can get transmission with double clutch. The new Ford GT supercar will receive a 7-speed gearbox DCT, but this does not mean that the GT530 will get this too. Ford Mustang of 2018 model year will be unveiled soon at the Auto Show in Los Angeles, but if not, you’ll have to wait until the motor show in Detroit in January 2017.
