Ford freshened the Mustang for ’18 and one major improvement comes from the upgraded manual in the V-8-powered GT. Engineers installed a new twin-disc clutch, dual mass flywheel, and more closely spaced gears. There are new synchronize rs, too. And it’s all aimed at making the GT a smoother, more rewarding experience. They’ve done an excellent job, but for those that want the ultimate Mustang GT without stepping all the way up to a Shelby, consider the Performance Package Level 2. The best news? If you want one, it only comes one way—with a manual transmission.
Up shift indicators have been around for a long time, but such fuel-saving minders are the bane of enthusiasts who enjoy revving their car’s engine a bit. However, a different readout in modern manual-equipped cars — the gear-position indicator — is a bit more useful, especially as manuals have added forward gears in recent years. Like the previously mentioned 911, the Chevrolet Corvette offers a seven-speed manual with a gear-position indicator in its instrument panel. It’s a helpful reminder of the gear you’re in.
t’s worth noting that some cars with dual-clutch automatics offer a manual shifting mode, usually via steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, but the experience is not the same. Some performance enthusiasts may bemoan the loss of the ”row-it-yourself” experience, since manually shifting is an enjoyable skill to practice and perfect, but if speed is the ultimate goal, it’s hard to argue with the results of an automated manual transmission.
