    • 2019 Ford Mustang GT500 to be DCT (dual clutch) only?

      This is an odd rumor considering Ford has a perfectly good 10-speed automatic that they developed with GM. Would Ford really spend the money for a new dual clutch designed to handle a ton of torque if the rumors on the GT500's output are true?


      This feels like clickbait more than anything. Some people are saying the Ford GT has a dual clutch so the Mustang can get it but the GT uses a transaxle design which would not work for the Mustang.

      If the rumor is true the GT500 suddenly becomes very appealing especially to a segment of enthusiasts relegated to German vehicles if they want a dual clutch transmission paired to a V8.

      It would certainly be a major step forward for the Mustang's image technologically.

        Not sure how that video proves it is a dual clutch.

        10spd will shift that fast. This proves nothing other than its a V8.

        I believe they are claiming dct because of that low volume "pop" on the gear change. I havent heard the 10spd yet, but about to look into it. As far as I know, only DCT/PDK do that, or so ive only so far heard them do it
