The Ford C6 automatic transmission is a four-wheel drive, rear-wheel-drive automatic transmission. Its design is based on the MX and was first introduced in 1993. Unlike the MX, it featured a heavy cast-iron case. The Ford C6 features a lightweight aluminum case and components and is renowned for its durability. In fact, it is the most widely available 4x4 transmission.
The C6 is a heavy-duty automatic transmission manufactured by Ford. Its name was SelectShift Cruise-O-Matic, and it was marketed as such. It was designed with lighter weight, less complexity, and lower parasitic power loss. It also had a higher torque capacity for larger engines, but did not exceed the packaging dimensions of the MX. The name SelectShift came after the company's research and development team came up with a more functional and reliable transmission, and Ford has since sold many of these units.
In addition to being lightweight, the C6 transmission is surprisingly robust. The dry weight of this transmission is 30 pounds. It requires 2-4 quarts of Type FA transmission fluid. The overall length depends on the size of the tailshaft housing. It weighs about the same as the factory-installed four-wheel-drive transmission, but has more torque and is more powerful than the stock one. Its torque converter and drivetrain have a large influence on the C6's performance.
The Ford C6 automatic transmission was the first heavy-duty automatic transmission in the United States. It was marketed as SelectShift Cruise-O-Matic. It was designed to be lighter than the C4 for smaller engines and was designed with fewer complexity and less parasitic power loss. It had a greater torque capacity than the MX. The design goals of the C6 were in line with those of the C4 for smaller engines.
Ford C6 automatic transmissions have a wide range of applications. The C6 was used in the Ford LTD, Mustang Boss 302, and F-150. It was made in the Sharonville Transmission Plant. The transmissions in the C6 family are perfect for use with the Ford V8 engine. So, it's easy to see that this transmission was created for Ford trucks. In fact, it's the first automatic transmission to be designed for this type of vehicle.
The C6 is a popular option for off-road vehicles. It's easy to install and carries a relatively low weight. Its overall length is dependent on the tailshaft housing. It has a maximum towing capacity of 8,000 lbs. It has the same power as a Ford F-150 with a higher torque. However, it is not as powerful as the Ford F-150.
