(autoinsidernews) вЂ" The next-generation of Ford's best-selling F-150 will get a six-speed automatic transmission, according to Automotive News. There is no news whether the F-150 will come with the six-speed as standard equipment or if it will be optional.
With the new Toyota Tundra available with a six-speed automatic, it should come as no surprise that Ford will offer one in its F-150. Ford already offers a six-speed automatic in its Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator full-size SUVs, reports Trend.
Earlier this month, Ford announced that it was investing $88 million in its Livonia Transmission Plant for a plant expansion and tooling for a six-speed rear-drive transmission for the 2009 Ford F-150 pickup truck.
