2) The second eight-speed, for higher-performance vehicles such as the upcoming Edge ST and V-6 version of the Nautilus, adapts a six-speed that was co-developed with GM as part of a 2002 tie-up.

3) A third eight-speed is expected for smaller, lower-torque vehicles.
Is the 3rd 8 speed a DCT?

I am in the market for a premium compact car with an Independent Rear suspension.

If it is, I hope it's more reliable.

I think the article maybe just splitting hair. The 3 different 8 speed transmissions could be just 3 different versions with different torque rating. Like how Ford has 4 different 6F versions but they are pretty much the same.

If we assume the GM-Ford JV FWD transmission is a further development of the existing 6F, then whether you subtract 1 gear from 9F or add 2 gears to 6F is just word play.
so ^ NO

According to this source, the new Ecosport uses the same power shift transmission and is now included in the recall

GM launches in about a year. Is a few months really worth all the drama and concern.

And NO, Lincoln should not have waited.
That's not how they typically do things.

Ford has opted out of the 9 speed saying it is too heavy to provide any mpg improvement. They supposedly have an internal 7 speed that they are going to use...............to be continued I guess
