I don't like autos. I've owned close to the same number of autos to manuals and I haven't broken a manual yet. No clutches either in manuals. I'm at three automatics in three different cars that have gone bad. Granted two were in trucks and I used them to pull things. But I didn't break the one manual transmission truck I've had and I would still be driving it if the suspension was up to the task
You did write DCT though, not select shift, which was why I pointed out the difference. They have already mated the 6F35 to the 2.0 L EcoBoost i4 in the Taurus, Explorer, Escape, and Fusion. Therefore they could theoretically create a boring automatic version of the ST without too much effort, as long as the transmission fit within the chassis rails.
I wouldn't recommend the 6F35 though personally.
