Ford's new eight-speed automatic transmission has been engineered to further optimise fuel-efficiency and deliver responsive performance and smooth, swift gearshifts
. Tuned to meet European driving expectations, the transmission features:
Before the command for a gearshift
is triggered, the torque is completely transmitted by clutch C1 and the gear ratio of the current gear is [i.sub.1].
A button near the gearshift
allows you to set the Dynamic Chassis Control to Comfort, Normal - both a little on the soft side for me - or Sport for a firmer ride.
GREAT DRIVE Gearshift
has smooth action and steering is light
The vehicle features a new bumper that supports a new fog lamp design and an altered grille, headlamps and daytime running LED lights that are in line with the Mission-D concept, and new taillights, steering wheel and a smaller gearshift
The AMG Sport Plus, priced Au1,000 above AMG Sport and just Au35 over the previous Sport line, includes 18-inch bi-colour AMG alloys, bi-Xenon front lights with Intelligent Light System and Adaptive High Beam Assist, AMG sports seats, Black Artico/Dinamica upholstery with contrast red stitching, red seat belts, AMG floor mats with red edging and silver gearshift
paddles (automatic transmission only).
Acting through its wholly owned subsidiary Gearshift
Merger Corp, TBC launched a tender offer for all outstanding Midas shares late in March, offering USD11.50 (EUR8.69) per unit.
In addition to the standard Start-Stop, optimum gearshift
indicator, brake energy regeneration and active aerodynamics, the 520d EfficientDynamics saloon has a longer final drive ratio to reduce engine revs at highway speeds and low-rollingresistance tyres.
Stop and Start and a gearshift
indicator also feature while the TwinAir also comes with a high level of standard spec, such as a full complement of airbags and power windows, and a raft of personalisation options like the rest of the 500 range.
