Hi Ford, I know manual transmissions are not in high demand nowadays, and I understand that modern automatics are reaching levels of efficiency that make the standard transmissions almost obsolete. That said, there are many enthusiasts like myself who have a strong preference for manual transmissions as we simply enjoy driving them. I know it doesn't make financial sense for you to offer them as a low volume option at a lesser or even cost as in the past, but why not offer them as an additional cost option? I recognize that it takes more effort and engineering cost to offer 2 transmissions, so why not pass that cost on to those of us who want them and are willing to pay? I'll gladly pay extra and will wait as long as it takes for a special order truck. Please Ford, don't make me buy another terrible Ram 2500 just to get a stickshift. It's new truck time and I really, really don't want another terrible quality Ram truck or to ever set foot in a Chrysler dealer again for that matter, but that's my only choice for a stickshift truck. F150 or F250 doesn't matter to me, but I assume you'd sell more sticks in the Super Duty line and that they would be more profitable trucks. Thanks for listening (hopefully).
