Manual transmissions are rare. It’s rarer still these days to find an automaker that will spend the time and money to upgrade their manual transmission. That’s exactly what Ford did for 2018.
The brake and accelerator pedals are pretty simple – press the brake to slow down (the firmer you press it, the quicker you’ll lose speed), while using the accelerator increases the engine’s revs and causes you to speed up (the firmer you press it, the quicker you will speed up).
One of the first things I was taught when learning how to drive a manual was to always let up on the gas pedal while shifting gears. That rule, however, doesn’t apply to the Cadillac ATS-V and its six-speed manual. The performance coupe’s no-lift shift feature lets you change gears without taking your foot off the gas, which avoids any power interruption from the car’s twin-turbocharged V-6 engine. The 2019 model year is the ATS-V’s last, and it’s unclear whether no-lift shifting will migrate to a future manual-transmission Cadillac. If you’re interested in this technology, a used ATS-V might be your best bet.
