Focus - 8-Speed Automatic Transmission - Ford New Zealand

A sophisticated new 8-speed automatic transmission

With improved acceleration and super smooth gear changes, the all new 8-speed automatic transmission is engineered from the ground up to enhance your driving experience and maximise performance. We've replaced the traditional gear lever with a console-mounted rotary gear shift dial. This gives the interior a cleaner, more modern layout. And there's another useful feature: when you park your car, the shifter automatically sets itself to parking mode.
