2017 Ford Raptor Sports New 10 Speed Transmission

Thats right folks, the 2017 Ford Raptor will have a new 10 speed transmission connected the EcoBoost power plant. The 10 speed transmission is the first of Ford's transmissions to use cast iron components allowing the transmission to further decrease the overall weight of the truck. To add to the weight loss Ford uses an integrated torque converter/turbine clutch.

Ford wants everyone to know that the new transmission built in conjunction with General Motors is Ford built. Ford says the new 10-speed will improve both acceleration and performance compared to its previous six-speed automatic transmissions. The 10 speed transmission uses wide-span gear spacing and “drag-reduction actions”, while three overdrive gears and a wider span overall that enables lower-numerical rear-axle ratios to help improve fuel efficiency.

This transmission is filled with technology such as “Smarter shift logic” and “All-new adaptive shift-scheduling algorithms that monitor more than a dozen powertrain and driver control signals in real time – ensuring the right gear at the right time for an engaging driving experience, including in sport mode.” The company also notes it will employ an integrated electric pump to work with the standard Auto Start-Stop system to improve over the previous system. Added for driver confidence will also be what is known as "Launch countdown" which allows the driver to know exactly what gear he or she is in.

Ford states that the company is investing $1.4 billion into its Livonia Transmission Plant that will retain and create 500 hourly jobs to assist with the new transmission.
