Ford is Developing a 10 Speed Auto Trans and working with GM on it, in return GM will let Ford use its 9 Speed Auto Transmission. In our MKC we have a joint Ford/GM 6 Speed Auto Trans. Ford has also recently said to save money they are dropping a gear in the 9 speed and making it 8 for FWD vehicles. The 10 speed right now is slotted for RWD trucks and cars.

I saw this great comparison on Kelley Blue Book. If it wasn't for the resale value the MKC would have come out on top.

As MKC rated tops of the consumer rating, I think that accounts for more than the "experts". Thanks for sharing.

MORE gear not always better folks. The ZF 9 speed in my Evoque was so horrendous that I dumped the vehicle in 15 months. 8 speed in the RRS is a dream however. ZF 9 speeds have been a nightmare in EVERY vehicle they have been used in including Cherokees, Tl's etc. Careful what you ask for. Just tightening up the shifting in sport mode and allowing a harder launch would solve most of the current shortcomings. It works quite well IMHO and I probably have more experience than most with higher levels of driving also TBH..

Any news on the 2018 MKCs? Saw a great Utube video on the 10 speed tranny in the pick-up truck.
