And I’d be shocked if they put the new 7.3 in anything other than a heavy duty truck
No worries about that Ford build real performance trucks not like chevy and their SS Silverado :cwl:

If the GT 500 doesn't end up with a manual option, maybe there's another FI Ford car in the works that will. With the death of the Camaro and the C8 not having a manual option theres going to be alot of potential buyers wanting a manual FI car, if Ford doesn't pony up than Dodge would be the only option. How sad!:crying:

agreed and they will too, i love a good stick shift but the issue is we are the minority. And they can’t justify the cost of R&D for a manual transmission

Ford said they listen to customers, if that's true a manual option will come in 2021.

I personally don't think they listen.

Just like the GT350 ford wants the GT500 produced and projected a certain way. The GT350 will always be a NA car and the GT500 will always have the DCT and nothing else. The GT500 will get refined and improved but there will be no manual transmission.

GT350/350R/PP2 are exclusive manual trans cars. Ford only wants the DCT in the GT500.. deal with it.

I do love going through the gears on my 350, it’s a true driving experience. Fact are facts though, the auto is faster than the best drivers in a manual. The 500 will carry the DCT only. Although they could have maybe gave it something else other than a dial indicator!! Lol
