6 Speed Automatic

Posted on  by admin

If Ford ran their performance development department like many other tech companies, they would have stopped trying to innovate many years ago after they captured the reputation as North America’s most trusted automaker.

  3. 6 Speed Automatic Transmissions

A patent for a longitudinal eight-speed automatic transmission was also found, which would mark an upgrade over Mazda's current six-speeds-maximum transmission lineup. See all 24 photos. The 6L80 denotes that the transmission is a 6-Speed, Longitudinally mounted, and for 8000 lbs. Vehicle weights. It's RPO code is 'MYC' and it is domestically manufactured in GM's Ypsilanti, Michigan plant. Newer to the transmission world is its use of direct clutch-to-clutch shifting and the total lack of bands.

But Ford isn’t satisfied with letting up, even in when it rides ahead of the pack. The new PowerShift 6-Speed Automatic transmission is just the latest of the many exciting advances from Ford.

The World Tour Comes Back Home

The PowerShift is big in Japan. It’s already taken Europe by storm. These two markets have traditionally loved manual transmissions, for both the smooth-shifting feel and greater fuel economy. Now the system is making a resounding first impression in North America.

The PowerShift transmission is currently available for both the 2015 Ford Fiesta and Ford Focus.

Two Manuals Combine to Make an Automatic

We’ll leave it to the accompanying video to explain the PowerShift in greater technical detail, but we’ll start with a short explanation.

The PowerShift 6-Speed Automatic Transmission is the result of two parallel manual transmissions working in tandem, combining through a dual-clutch mechanism to create the same effects as an automatic transmission. The result is a design that manages shifts between two gear sets, providing the feel and efficiency of a manual transmission, engine torque delivered at all times, and the ease of use as a manual transmission.

The Look of Innovation

So what does the shift column look like in the paradox of engineering, a self-shifting but manual transmission? It looks just like your basic automatic transmission, from Park and reverse, down to Drive. However, there is a little button toggle on the knob, thumb-side, allowing you to take greater control of your drive as you feel the need, ideal for navigating hills.

Watch the following insiders video from Ford, explaining the new PowerShift transmission in more detail.

Chronology
SuccessorAWF8F35 Transmission

The Aisin AW TF-8# SC series is a 6-speed automatic transmission designed for use in transverse engine applications and produced by Aisin Seiki. It is designed to handle a maximum of 450 N⋅m (331.9 ft⋅lbf) of torque.[1] It is built in Anjō, Japan.[2] It is also called the TF-80SC[3] (AWF21, AF40-6, AM6,[4] AW6A-EL) and TF-81SC (AF21).[5]

The design team set out to create a 6 speed automatic that fits in the same space as a manual gearbox. It measures 358 mm (14.1 in) in length and weighs 90 kg (198 lb). Its combined use of a conventional 5-pinion planetary gearset and a compound Ravigneaux gearset makes it incredibly light and compact. This combination is known as a Lepelletier arrangement. The shifting of gears is managed by a sophisticated computer programme which oversees a clutch-to-clutch actuation. Gear changes are accomplished by one clutch engaging the instant the clutch from the previous gear disengages. The transmission control module (TCM) is located inside the transmission housing, instead of being located outside it. The advantage of this is to reduce external wiring as well as to provide a constant environment for TCM operation which encourages longevity. One aspect of the advanced nature of the electronics is at idle (along with required foot brake depression on e.g. Opel Astra), it automatically selects neutral gear to reduce internal temperatures and improve fuel economy.

It is a sealed for life unit, using proprietary transmission fluid which is labelled as being maintenance free. However, for vehicles used primarily for towing, taxi or in mountainous environments transmission fluid change every 60,000 km is recommended. Transmissions made before year 2011 (generation 1) use JWS 3309 standard oil, while transmissions made from year 2011 (generation 2) use JWS 3324 standard oil.

All wheel drive transfer cases can be fitted to the AWTF-80 SC.
