Ford Filed Patent for 11-Speed Gearbox
If it were up to the automakers, a machine can never have too many gears. Ford therefore has patents pending for a shad raps machine.
The Car Guide website came across the application to a search for the patent register. Ford describes the document three ways in which it could realize the shad raps machine.
Again an additional resistance appears at first sight perhaps unnecessary, but Ford is confident that with the eleventh gear must better manage to tune the switching behavior of the torque curve.
Ford has already announced recently that it will introduce a ten-speed automatic in the Raptor. It is therefore possible that the shad raps machine at least in the car becomes available.
