Family hauler, for now
Have heard rumors that Ford will be bringing a manual transmission in 2021 as an.alternate option for the DCT. Any validity to this?

Or 2022 most likely.
Remember if we get a new Mustang in 2023 the GT500 will probably be gone.
Most likely 3 years of this current GT500.

can't you just post in the previous 4 threads that asked this nonsense question already?

But to answer your question it comes with a manual. It's just that the shifter uses these 2 slivers of plastic mounted to the steering wheel. and the computer subsumed the clutch pedal.

I like to disassemble things.

You said rumors. Can you link or quote one of these rumor sources?

For the love of God please don't say you heard it from a dealer...

I heard for 2022, the MSRP is dropping to $29K and the HP is being increased to sweet even 1000.

Seriously I heard it ...










... after I said it out loud to myself.

even better, I heard that the key fob for the GT500 will revert to the old, style used by the 2015 Focus.

If you haven’t got a chance to drive the 2020 gt500 u might want to I have had a manual my whole life except for the 911 gts and now the 500 in the old days growing up all sports cars should be manual since it was fun to drop the clutch smoke the tires or rev it up
These days the dct is amazing u can still rev it up like a clutch by holding both paddles in and it match revs each gear on downshifts the 500 is more engaging then my porsche just stepping on the brakes in any mode will rev each gear as it downshifts. To be honest when your driving on the track its nice to have both hands on the wheel as the there is so much power on tap and the transmission is extremely super smooth no lag or sudden gear shifts it’s lightning quick throwing a manual in it wouldn’t do the 500 justice as it would be much slower in the end there is nothing u cant do with the dct that you can do with the manual is nice to have old school sometimes with a manual with a older ride the new 2020 is a absolutely prefect in the feeling and enjoyment u get when driving the car

I totally agree.
I’ve been a huge supporter of the DCT since it was announced and now my experience with it has lived up to the hype.

You are all wrong, Let me explain. I was standing with a group of people (socially distancing of course) taking about the terrible roads and how a manual is better than a DCT. When a high pitched voice from over my shoulder whispered something... I wasn't sure but it sounded like the Keebler elf (or was it the lucky charms mascot) I always get those mixed up. It (don't want to misgender) whispered 'Next year the tires will flip under the car and it will hover. Roads… where we're going we don't need roads'. I'm sure I heard this from somewhere but dismissed it as alot of stupid stuff was said prior( you know the manual thing and all). I looked over my shoulder and it was a leprechaun (or an elf not really sure) riding a unicorn. Now I would usually dismiss this as weird,but I'm not shocked about anything anymore(you know 2020 and all). It was really adamant after I said BS using all the buzz words and such. Thinking back it does seem legit as it was wearing an official looking FORD shirt and he did say he was connected. It also let it slip about working on the Mach-E program. Now how can I question anyone that has ties to that program? One thing that was odd was just before they floated away(like in the Jetsons) bubbles started shooting out of the unicorns butt. I quickly excused this (You know not surprised by anything) and chalked it up as just a future propulsion unit from Ford(it even made the same type of sound from the Jetsons). I quickly reached for my phone(You know pics or it didn't happen) but to my dismay I was too late.

This is the July edition thread of “Will there be a manual?”. Keep an eye out for next month’s edition, in which there will be another thread with loads of new information about how there won’t be a manual.
