Ford To Buy Transmissions From Nissan
The Daily Auto Insider
Thursday, June 5, 2003
Nissan plans to supply Ford with continuously variable transmissions (CVTs), Reuters reported, citing Japan's Nihon Keizai newspaper.
CVTs, which use pullies to provide a seamless progression of gear ratios, can cut fuel consumption by around 10 percent compared with vehicles with automatic transmissions.
Starting as early as 2005, the paper said, Jatco is expected to make "several tens of thousands" of CVTs a year.
Ford plans to use the transmissions in the passenger cars it produces in North America, such as sport utility vehicles and high-end sedans, the paper said.
My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.
My next Ford.....
