For the Record 90% of Ford transmissions are JVs with other companies. The arrogance of that guy is astounding.

Wait, 90% is JV….based on what, volume or offerings? Huge difference there.

Ford engineers, tests and manufactures a lot of transmissions. He is right, they are just better at making step shift than CVT. How is that arrogance?
As far as JV goes, that is typical and just smart business, to share in the high $$ development costs of transmissions.
