Why can't some people get what they want? So many people prefer manual transmissions in F series Trucks and other cars.
We no longer offer manual transmissions in F-Series trucks because demand for manual transmissions has fallen to very low levels while at the same time we’ve improved the robustness and fuel efficiency of our automatic transmissions. For example, the 6R140 six-speed automatic transmission for F-Series Super Duty® can be paired with either our 6.2L V8 gas engine or our available 6.7L V8 Power Stroke® Diesel. One of its smart features is a manual shift mode that allows drivers to select the exact gear they desire, as long as they don’t go over redline. The gear select display in the instrument cluster shows the selected gear, and the transmission control system will lock the torque converter and hold that gear for a full manual transmission feel. Manual transmissions are still available for the Ford Fiesta, Focus and Fusion cars and F-650 and F-750 medium-duty trucks.
