Mondeo Gearbox Option

Ford has unveiled a hi-tech new gearbox for its Mondeo, called Durashift 5-Tronic.
The £1,500 option works in both automatic and manual mode via an advanced transmission control unit that adapts to the driver's style and road conditions. The system debuted last year in the Transit, but will be available in the Mondeo from March.

If it is used in the Transit as well then it should be strong.

Yes we do get it in NZ.

The new transmission option on the Mondeo is what should have been offered at the launch of the car, however I keen to see if they will use it with the 3.0L V6 due this year.

Sound like it is a good unit. Have any experience with this transmission?

Not in the Transit and the one being offered in the Mondeo probably won't see these shores until later in the year, however I agree that it is sounding promising.

That's good. I hope the Gerbox/transmission is good an reliable too. If it get's good reports then it might swing a few buyers Ford's way.
