first car with 6 speed manual
It uses a driver-operated clutch, usually engaged and disengaged by a foot pedal or hand lever, for regulating power and torque transfer from the engine to the transmission; and a gear selector that can be operated by hand.Higher-end vehicles, such as sports cars and luxury cars are often usually equipped with a 6-speed transmission for the base model. Automatic transmissions are commonly used instead of manual transmissions; common types of automatic transmissions are the hydraulic automatic transmission, automated manual transmission, dual-clutch transmission and the continuously variable transmission (CVT). The number of forward gear ratios is often expressed for automatic transmissions as well (e.g., 9-speed automatic).Most manual transmissions for cars allow the driver to select any gear ratio at any time, for example shifting from 2nd to 4th gear, or 5th to 3rd gear. However, sequential manual transmissions, which are commonly used in motorcycles and racing cars, only allow the driver to select the next-higher or next-lower gear.A clutch sits between the flywheel and the transmission input shaft, controlling whether the transmission is connected to the engine ( clutch engaged - the clutch pedal is not being pressed) or not connected to the engine ( clutch disengaged - the clutch pedal is being pressed down). When the engine is running and the clutch is engaged (i.e., clutch pedal up), the flywheel spins the clutch plate and hence the transmission.This is a fundamental difference compared with a typical hydraulic automatic transmission, which uses an epicyclic (planetary) design. Some automatic transmissions are based on the mechanical build and internal design of a manual transmission, but have added components (such as servo-controlled actuators and sensors) which automatically control the gear shifts and clutch; this design is typically called an automated manual transmission (or a clutchless manual transmission ).

Operating such transmissions often uses the same pattern of shifter movement with a single or multiple switches to engage the next sequence of gears.The driver was therefore required to use careful timing and throttle manipulation when shifting, so the gears would be spinning at roughly the same speed when engaged; otherwise, the teeth would refuse to mesh.Five-speed transmissions became widespread during the 1980s, as did the use of synchromesh on all forward gears.This allows for a narrower transmission since the length of each countershaft is halved compared with one that contains four gears and two shifters.For example, a five-speed transmission might have the first-to-second selectors on the countershaft, but the third-to-fourth selector and the fifth selector on the main shaft. This means that when the vehicle is stopped and idling in neutral with the clutch engaged and the input shaft spinning, the third-, fourth-, and fifth-gear pairs do not rotate.For reverse gear, an idler gear is used to reverse the direction in which the output shaft rotates. In many transmissions, the input and output shafts can be directly locked together (bypassing the countershaft) to create a 1:1 gear ratio which is referred to as direct drive.The assembly consisting of both the input and output shafts is referred to as the main shaft (although sometimes this term refers to just the input shaft or output shaft). Independent rotation of the input and output shafts is made possibly by one shaft being located inside the hollow bore of the other shaft, with a bearing located between the two shafts.The input shaft runs the whole length of the gearbox, and there is no separate input pinion.When the dog clutches for all gears are disengaged (i.e. when the transmission is in neutral), all of the gears are able to spin freely around the output shaft.
When the driver selects a gear, the dog clutch for that gear is engaged (via the gear selector rods), locking the transmission's output shaft to a particular gear set.It has teeth to fit into the splines on the shaft, forcing that shaft to rotate at the same speed as the gear hub. However, the clutch can move back and forth on the shaft, to either engage or disengage the splines. This movement is controlled by a selector fork that is linked to the gear lever. The fork does not rotate, so it is attached to a collar bearing on the selector. The selector is typically symmetric: it slides between two gears and has a synchromesh and teeth on each side in order to lock either gear to the shaft. Unlike some other types of clutches (such as the foot-operated clutch of a manual-transmission car), a dog clutch provides non-slip coupling and is not suited to intentional slipping.These devices automatically match the speed of the input shaft with that of the gear being selected, thus removing the need for the driver to use techniques such as double clutching.Therefore, to speed up or slow down the input shaft as required, cone-shaped brass synchronizer rings are attached to each gear. In a modern gearbox, the action of all of these components is so smooth and fast it is hardly noticed. Many transmissions do not include synchromesh on the reverse gear (see Reverse gear section below).This is achieved through 'blocker rings' (also called 'baulk rings'). The synchro ring rotates slightly because of the frictional torque from the cone clutch. In this position, the dog clutch is prevented from engaging. Once the speeds are synchronized, friction on the blocker ring is relieved and the blocker ring twists slightly, bringing into alignment certain grooves or notches that allow the dog clutch to fall into the engagement.The latter involves the stamping the piece out of a sheet metal strip and then machining to obtain the exact shape required.
These rings and sleeves have to overcome the momentum of the entire input shaft and clutch disk during each gearshift (and also the momentum and power of the engine, if the driver attempts a gearshift without fully disengaging the clutch). Larger differences in speed between the input shaft and the gear require higher friction forces from the synchromesh components, potentially increasing their wear rate.This means that moving the gearshift lever into reverse results in gears moving to mesh together. Another unique aspect of the reverse gear is that it consists of two gears— an idler gear on the countershaft and another gear on the output shaft— and both of these are directly fixed to the shaft (i.e. they are always rotating at the same speed as the shaft). These gears are usually spur gears with straight-cut teeth which— unlike the helical teeth used for forward gear— results in a whining sound as the vehicle moves in reverse.To avoid grinding as the gears begin to the mesh, they need to be stationary. Since the input shaft is often still spinning due to momentum (even after the car has stopped), a mechanism is needed to stop the input shaft, such as using the synchronizer rings for 5th gear.This can take the form of a collar underneath the gear knob which needs to be lifted or requiring extra force to push the gearshift lever into the plane of reverse gear.Without a clutch, the engine would stall any time the vehicle stopped and changing gears would be difficult (deselecting a gear while the transmission requires the driver to adjust the throttle so that the transmission is not under load, and selecting a gear requires the engine RPM to be at the exact speed that matches the road speed for the gear being selected).In most automobiles, the gear stick is often located on the floor between the driver and front passenger, however, some cars have a gear stick that is mounted to the steering column or center console.
Gear selection is usually via the left foot pedal with a layout of 1 - N - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6. This was actuated either manually while in high gear by throwing a switch or pressing a button on the gearshift knob or on the steering column, or automatically by momentarily lifting the foot from the accelerator with the vehicle traveling above a certain road speed.When the crankshaft spins as a result of the energy generated by the rolling of the vehicle, the motor is cranked over. This simulates what the starter is intended for and operates in a similar way to crank handles on very old cars from the early 20th century, with the cranking motion being replaced by the pushing of the car.This was often due to the manual transmission having more gear ratios, and the lock-up speed of the torque converters in automatic transmissions of the time.The operation of the gearstick— another function that is not required on automatic transmission cars— means that the driver must take one hand off the steering wheel while changing gears. Another challenge is that smooth driving requires co-ordinated timing of the clutch, accelerator, and gearshift inputs. Lastly, a car with an automatic transmission obviously does not require the driver to make any decisions about which gear to use at any given time.This means that the driver's right foot is not needed to operate the brake pedal, freeing it up to be used on the throttle pedal instead. Once the required engine RPM is obtained, the driver can release the clutch, also releasing the parking brake as the clutch engages.Please help improve it by rewriting it in an encyclopedic style. ( June 2020 ) ( Learn how and when to remove this template message ) Multi-control transmissions are built in much higher power ratings but rarely use synchromesh.Usual types are:The first through fourth gears are accessed when low range is selected.
To access the fifth through eighth gears, the range selector is moved to high range, and the gear lever again shifted through the first through fourth gear positions. In high range, the first gear position becomes fifth, the second gear position becomes sixth, and so on. This allows even more gear ratios. Both a range selector and a splitter selector are provided. In older trucks using floor-mounted levers, a bigger problem is common gear shifts require the drivers to move their hands between shift levers in a single shift, and without synchromesh, shifts must be carefully timed or the transmission will not engage. Also, each can be split using the thumb-actuated under-overdrive lever on the left side of the knob while in high range. L cannot be split using the thumb lever in either the 13- or 18-speed. The 9-speed transmission is basically a 13-speed without the under-overdrive thumb lever.Transmissions may be in separate cases with a shaft in between; in separate cases bolted together; or all in one case, using the same lubricating oil. With a third transmission, gears are multiplied yet again, giving greater range or closer spacing. Some trucks thus have dozens of gear positions, although most are duplicates. Two-speed differentials are always splitters. In newer transmissions, there may be two countershafts, so each main shaft gear can be driven from one or the other countershaft; this allows construction with short and robust countershafts, while still allowing many gear combinations inside a single gear case.One argument is synchromesh adds weight that could be payload, is one more thing to fail, and drivers spend thousands of hours driving so can take the time to learn to drive efficiently with a non-synchromesh transmission. Since the clutch is not used, it is easy to mismatch speeds of gears, and the driver can quickly cause major (and expensive) damage to the gears and the transmission.
Here are 20 of the greatest driver's machines that still do. But it’s no stretch to say it was Mazda’s brilliant five-speed manual transmission that seriously added to the thrill ride. The stubby little shifter was so effortless, it moved with just a modest flick of the wrist. The second-generation Miata of 1999 got one more gear in tenth anniversary models—a six-speed—that remained optional (the five-speed was standard) well into the third generation was equally great to use. The Miata was all new for 2016, and a few years later the Mazda not only retains the easy-shifting and precise six-speed manual transmission in the Roadster model but also the even better driving retractable fastback (RF) model. Either way, 2019 MX-5s get an uprated engine that now makes 181 hp and revs to 7,500 rpm. And regardless of whether your Miata has a hard roof or a soft one, it’s one of the best manual transmissions available on any car at any price. Of course, engineers were tempted to design a heavier and more expensive twin-clutch, paddle-shift transmission instead of a manual. But we’re sure glad they didn’t, and Subaru recently added a new high-performance, track-focused tS model to the range with a re-tuned suspension by STI (Subaru’s performance arm), frame stiffeners, lighter-weight wheels, and high-performance Brembo brakes. Oh, and yes, there’s a big wing on the back, too. All this good stuff goes a long way to make the BRZ an even more enjoyable manual-transmission machine. That’s exactly what Ford did for 2018. 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 synchronizers, 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. The new seven-speed manual transmission (an eight-speed automatic is optional) is one of the best hooked to any V8. And that’s true even for the top Z06 model. The Z06 makes a rather astonishing 650 hp from its supercharged V-8 and when shifted by an expert tester can hit 60 mph in just 3.3 seconds. One might expect a car with such heavyweight performance to have a transmission that takes muscle to shift, but that’s not the case. Pull one of the shift paddles that flank the steering wheel (yes, shift paddles on a manual) to activate the slick rev-matching feature, which makes you sound like a heel-and-toe hero on downshifts. It’s a pleasure to use. And that’s true of the whole car too. This is one of the best-driving sports cars in the world—at any price. That’s big news for Porsche fans because the GT3 is one of the most potent and perhaps the purest models it sells. The GT3 packs a 4.0-liter flat six-cylinder in its tail that makes an even 500 hp way up at 8,350 rpm. The GT3 doesn’t have the same seven-speed manual as the rest of the 911 line. Instead it uses a stronger six-speed unit borrowed from the hyper-limited 911 R model with a shorter gear lever. For many manual transmission enthusiasts, this is the car they’d most like to park in the garage. It also might be one of the last manual 911s, if the new 2020 models are any indication. The new Carrera and Carrera S launched with an eight-speed dual-clutch as the only transmission. Compared to the plain-vanilla 500, the Abarth delivers 60 more hp and 72 more lb-ft of torque.
The high-powered Fiat is relatively tame when you want it to be, but flatfoot the throttle and it sounds like a squadron of light aircraft are chasing you down—Fiat doesn't bother to fit, you know, a muffler. Need another incentive to go with the manual. For inexplicable Italian reasons, the manual cars make 160 hp but the automatics only get 154. In fact, we’d guess only the Acura NSX supercar is quicker. But what’s neat about the Type R is that Honda channels the output of the 306-hp turbocharged four-cylinder engine through a manual transmission and on to the front wheels. That’s right, every Type R is a manual. Downside? The Type R isn’t pretty. But try to get past the appearance because the Type R is a very smart and sophisticated performance machine. The supercharger and large displacement V-8 are gone, replaced by a tech-heavy flat-plane 526-hp 5.2-liter V-8 that’s nicknamed “Voodoo” and wants to rev hard. Nearly every body panel ahead of the windshield is all new to cover the car’s wider track. Unlike Mustangs of the past—every design detail on the car is there to increase performance, not just appearances. Best of all, the only transmission Ford puts behind the new motor in the GT350 is a Tremec six-speed manual with carbon-bronze triple-cone synchronizers. And that's just fine with us. The difference here is that only the Golf R is offered with a manual transmission. This transmission will save you some dough over the DSG automatic. For 2018, there were also new touch screens and digital gauge clusters, too. Now if we can just get the Golf R in the new SportWagen body style like they have in Europe—with a manual. And second because a manual transmission adds an extra dimension of fun to 4X4s. Creeping up and over boulders with a manual transmission is challenging and requires just the right shift timing, throttle, and clutch work. An automatic lets the vehicle slowly crawl over the worst trail obstacles.
All the driver has to do is steer and gently apply the throttle. The new Jeep Wrangler Rubicon is one of the most capable 4WD vehicles ever produced, and one of only a handful of 4X4s today that offer a manual. The all-new D478 gearbox six-speed has a deeper 5.13:1 first gear than the previous generation Wrangler for easier creeping on slow-speed trails. It’s a bummer this gearbox isn’t available with the fun and frisky 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, but it does operate smoothly and really brings out the most personality from the Wrangler’s new 285-hp 3.6-liter V-6. Long live the manual transmission Wrangler. As if the 650-hp Z06 model wasn’t enough, the Corvette team has upgraded the 6.2-liter V-8 with a larger supercharger to deliver 755 hp and 715 lb-ft of torque. Chevy says the ZR1 is the most powerful Vette ever and can reach 60 mph in less than three seconds and top out at 212 mph. The new aero package, Chevy says, will produce an insane 950 pounds of downforce. They might need it, too, since the Corvette team is gunning to cut a full 20 seconds off the Nurburgring lap time of the old, previous-generation ZR1. Of all BMW’s rivals in this class, few offer a row-your-own transmission, and BMW’s is a good one. Get the shifts right and you can hit 60 mph in just over four seconds. In two of the drivetrain modes (Efficient and Sport), this smart gearbox will rev-match downshifts for you, too, which is handy. But select Sport Plus, and it’s the driver’s responsibility to do all that work. And since Caddy knows enthusiasts are buying this car, there’s a six-speed manual connected to the 464-hp twin-turbo V-6. This is no low-tech gearbox. Do it all right and you will hit 60 mph in 4.2 seconds—and have a great time flicking the short throws of that Tremec six-speed. You know what? We’ll take the regular Hellcat instead. After all, this car still has 717 hp and 656 lb-ft of torque thanks to its supercharged 6.2-liter V-8—those are just ridiculous numbers.
Dodge could have wimped out and made sure every Hellcat was paired with an automatic, too. But Dodge didn’t deprive manual-trans fans. You can tap into every one of those ponies with a robust six-speed manual and leave burnout stripes stretching several blocks long. It can hit 60 mph in under four seconds despite weighing almost 4,500 pounds. Make ours a wide body with those extra-large wheels and tires. And the latest Lotus, the Evora, can build serious grip on these roads while also providing a soft, supple ride. So, it makes sense that the company would keep the manual transmission a big part of the formula. The latest model, the limited-production Sport 410 GP Edition, is not only lighter by about 200 pounds but also drops the suspension slightly and retunes the springs and dampers for even better handling. The 400-hp 3.5-liter supercharged V-6 is unchanged but the six-speed manual, Lotus says, has a low-inertia flywheel for quicker shifts. And it is quick. The 2,910-pound Lotus can hit 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds. Only 150 of these will be available for the world each year, so this will likely be one of the rarest manual machines on our list. And if you need more incentive to opt for the manual versus the automatic, the manual car's top speed is 190 mph. The automatic: 174 mph. What that is, we're not sure, but we can tell you that it's big fun to row the ST's leather-and-aluminum-trimmed shifter through the gears as the little 1.6-liter EcoBoost four strains toward its 197-hp peak. The Fiesta ST is one of those cheap, thrilling machines that, when it's gone, will make us sad that Ford gave up on cars. And Jag made sure that there were at least a few manual transmissions in the mix. Today, the lineup ranges from the new 296-hp four-cylinder up to the fire-breathing 575-hp supercharged V-8 SVR. But only the 340-hp and 380-hp supercharged V-6 models can be paired with manuals. Hey, these cars can hit 60 mph in 5.5 and 5.
3 seconds respectively—so that’s probably sufficient for most backroad adventures. While there are zillions of vehicles with Toyota's 3.5-liter V-6, this is the only one (other than the Lotus Evora) that gets a manual. The Cayman’s turbocharged 2.5-liter flat four-cylinder normally makes 350 hp. But here that figure is bumped by 12 hp. It also comes with Porsche’s best options like Active Suspension Management, a torque-vectoring rear diff, drive modes, and a sport exhaust. The Cayman GTS also comes standard with a slick six-speed manual. We particularly like the suede-like fabric used on the seats and steering wheel. The package really comes together to make this one fun-to-drive sports car on a good twisty road that won’t beat you up on the morning commute. And yet it’s also hip and upscale at the same time. Just about every car in Mini’s lineup can be optioned with a manual transmission. The most rewarding of all Minis is the John Cooper Works (JCW) models. Mini bumps up the power to 228 hp (up 39 hp over the S model) and can be optioned with a unique sport suspension to ratchet down the handling even more tightly.You may be able to find more information about this and similar content at piano.io. It was created based on the 7-speed dual clutch transmission by ZF. The 7MT is responsible for the new, fast gear shifting characteristics. The developed converted shifting actuator allows a classic H-shift pattern to be combined with dual-clutch gear sets. Then get in touch with us using this contact form. Our experts will get back to you shortly. However, all of them must have definitely thought about the perfect car which would combine the convenience of clutchless-shifting and the satisfaction of rowing through gears yourself. Well, Hyundai Motors has now made those dreams come true. In an industry-pioneering move, the company has debuted an Intelligent Manual Transmission (iMT) in the Hyundai Venue compact SUV.
The new gearbox gets a 2-pedal configuration, while giving the driver’s the benefit of shifting gears physically through the 6-speed manual transmission. The Hyundai Venue was also the vehicle of choice for the company when they introduced connected car technology in India. Hyundai Venue will be the first vehicle in India to offer a clutchless manual. The new Intelligent Manual Transmission (iMT) combines a gear lever with an intention sensor, hydraulic actuator and a Transmission Control Unit (TCU). So how does all of this work you may be asking. Well it all starts with the driver and what gears they decide is needed. After the transmission lever slots into a particular gear, the intention sensor sends that signal to the TCU. The TCU module, in turn, sends a signal to the hydraulic actuator to create hydraulic pressure which is needed to activate the slave cylinder. The pressure which is built up in this cylinder, is used to control the clutch and pressure plate, thereby engaging or disengaging the clutch. The driver, without any hint of delay, is able to seamlessly shift through any gear he wishes. Hyundai’s main aim with this system is to give customers all the benefits of an automatic and manual transmission, rolled into one cohesive unit. The Intelligent Manual Transmission allows you to shift manually without any clutch action. The Intelligent Manual Transmission (iMT) will start rolling out this month and will only be available in variants with the Kappa 1.0-litre GDi turbo petrol engine with 6-speed manual transmission. The trims available with this engine-transmission combination are S, SX and SX(O) - priced between INR 8.46 lakh (ex-showroom) and INR 10.95 lakh (ex-showroom). While the upcoming Kia Sonet compact SUV was all set to become India’s first model to be available with a clutchless manual gearbox, it was beaten to the punch by its own cousin.

That leaves behind only a handful of options for those seeking a tall vehicle that isn’t a pickup truck that also has a row-your-own transmission. We’ve gathered every new crossover and SUV—and the specific trim levels on each that come with the human-shifted transmission—that still offer a stick. But the revived Bronco is so exciting that we felt it merited inclusion here—and the fact that you can get it with a manual transmission is just a cherry on top. The Bronco's stick-shift is a seven-speed unit, with Ford referring to the first gear as a creeper gear. It's only offered with the standard turbocharged 2.3-liter inline-four and not the twin-turbo 2.7-liter V-6 upgrade engine, and as of now Ford says the manual can't be had with the off-road-oriented Sasquatch package. But who are we to complain? The standard 3.6-liter gasoline V-6—the only engine offered with the manual—can also be had with the same eight-speed automatic as the turbo four, but what’s the fun in that? We also appreciate that it still offers a manual gearbox, although only on the base LX trim level.All manual Crosstreks use a 2.0-liter inline-four with 152 horsepower. All-wheel drive is standard on every Crosstrek, and those not keen on shifting for themselves can opt for a continuously variable automatic transmission; it’s included on the upper trims, including the new-for-2021 Sport model with its more powerful 2.5-liter engine.

When the first automobile was built, the tiny engine was connected directly to the driveshaft. It worked, but the Benz Patent Motorwagen offered a slow and jerky ride.
