As far as we know, manual transmission is being phased out. The idea that stick-shift could ever work in today’s economy is a view held by lunatics and speed-addicts. We live in such a cushiony existence to where it’s nearly impossible to operate with the knowledge of driving stick-shifts ever so naturally as one may assume possible. However, let’s say you were interested in encountering the madness that can be found in a manual gearbox transmission… Here are the cars you should look at:
A blast from the 1990s, the Acura Integra, returns for 2023 while offering a six-speed manual to pair with 200-hp turbocharged four-cylinder engine.
A new version of the BMW M2 arrives while offering manual-transmission. All while it’s paired with a 453-horsepower twin-turbocharged inline-six.
Chevy will allow you the opportunity shift gears in the Camaro, with more up-shift to be offered up in rear-wheel-drive muscle car.
In a similar position, the Dodge Challenger has a manual gearbox, with several versions of engines in the 375-hp 5.7-liter V-8, the 485-hp 6.4-liter V-8, and the more than 700-hp supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 of the top-dog Challenger SRT Hellcat.
A six-speed manual is available with the strong turbo-four and optional 5.0-liter V-8 for the Ford Mustang.
It’s easy to notice the turbocharged Elantra N Line discontinued stick shifts. But upon requests, the Elantra can bring up six-speed manual gearboxes if they wanted to. For the price of under $34,000.
It was much appreciated that the Toyota Supra had come with automatic transmissions, but bringing in six-speed manual gearboxes makes the Supra even more attractive, with the 382-hp turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six.
Volkswagen is no longer the vendor of the Golf in the United State but other offerings are more readily equipped with the six-speed manual transmission.
