Damn it Ford! Why not give the people a choice? !!!
Because it's a performance car and they wanted to keep it to a performance market, not to mention the DCT can't handle the torque numbers of the ecoboost. I'm sure they would gain some market by having it in an auto variant, but in my opinion I'm glad they kept it manual only for now. BUT hopefully a tune is available for you NA guys soon so turbo kits can start being made!
