High-Tech Transmissions Coming

Don’t expect to be stuck with an automatic, however, because options such as paddle shifting and mode selection (e.g., sport, economy, and touring) should be available, as well.

We are not going to predict how soon, or in which models, these transmissions will be available, but don’t be surprised when you see them.
