Mustang 10-Speed Auto All But Officially Confirmed

We’ve known for almost a year the Mustang was expected to gain a 10-speed automatic gearbox, today it’s all but officially confirmed.

The new 10R80 transmission jointly developed with General Motors showed up as an option for S550 Mustangs in Microcat, a parts database for Ford dealerships.

When Chevrolet debuted the Camaro ZL1 they claimed the 10-speed auto will flip through gears faster than a Porsche PDK, the ZL1 and new F-150 Raptor will be the first vehicles on the market with the new gearbox.

We wonder if Ford might debut 10R80 on the Mustang with a similarly high profile, high-horsepower launch like the ZL1 and Raptor.
