The 6R80 (Auto Trans
) is very similar to the ZF 6 Speed Automatics used in BMWs and Jaquars.
Ford calls the button on the handle "Hill Assist". BMW and Jaguar have switches on the console and they call theirs..... "SPORT MODE
". I've owned several automatic BMWs and have used these feature a lot! Can you say FUN!
I can't believe Ford messed up by NOT calling this function "SPORT MODE". What bunch of knuckleheads in their Marketing Division.
