i have read in alot of places that gm and ford developed the 6 speed tranny together, did ford use it on the egde and lincoln on the mk?

if they did, does it have the same lag as the gm crossovers? just curious.

thanks

Not from what I have heard but I suspect Ford did the "tuning" on their applications. I personally think this is all software related and that there is nothing inherently wrong with the 6 speed tranny that they developed together.

Probably not due to the difference in weight. This was a joint effort between GM and Ford, but they both do their own programing. This joint tranny is GM based, so don't fear the Ford thing too much. ;D

I drove a rental Ford Edge last week and must say I was impressed with the engine/tranny performance. It did seem to have the "lag" issue though when flooring it while at highway speed, but this "lighter" CUV would really haul a$$. HOWEVER, the interior is BUTT UGLY.......I am so glad I am buying a GM. What is Ford thinking with their interior design? Obviously Michael Burton is "the man" when it comes to designing interiors....I am glad he is at GM.

The Edge, MKX, Fusion, and MKZ use the same 6 speed hardware as the lambda's, but Ford and GM modify the software program to each vehicle.

I agree with ccaats about the Ford Edge interior.....it is so cheap looking it is butt ugly!! Looks like something you'd see in a cheap Korean car. I can't believe how they praise this car in their commericals.

:hijacked: I get a kick out of the clear bra thread. It sounds like it could be a discussion of Victoria's Secret's fall collection over there.

"Crossover" is what "trannies" do - they "crossover" to the other side. Now do you get it? Nevermind, my mind was just in the gutter :beer: :beer:
