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.

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

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

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

1) The first of those is based off the nine-speed, dropping one of the gears.

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?

& a comment @ TTAC
I'm not convinced we've heard the whole truth & nothing-but YET...


&
can't see 3 being cheaper to build than 1 -- NOR engineer
but
CAN kinda see a reason for the third being HYBRID-ready/optimized, for lower petrol-power(=~half!) and needing to be as light as possible
