Manumatic gearboxes Manumatic is a portmanteau word, combining the words manual and automatic, that applies to a class of automotive gearboxes. Manumatic most often refers to an automatic gearbox; with some elements of manual gearbox control (e.g. a gear can be manually selected instead of having the computer control all shifts). This type of gearbox was introduced in the beginning of the 21st century. Different car manufacturers have been using a variety of labels for their manumatic gearboxs, such as ‘tiptronic’, ‘Geartronic’, ‘Touchshift’, ‘Sporttronic’, and others.

Ford S-Max Gearboxes

S-MAX and comes with a Ford Durashift 6-speed gearbox. Available for both vehicles, according to market, is Ford’s refined 125-PS, 1.8-litre Duratorq TDCi diesel, available with either Ford’s Durashift 5-speed or 6-speed gearbox. A 140-PS 2.0-litre Duratorq TDCi engine is also available. This engine can also be specified with an optional advanced coated DPF (cDPF) system. The rigidity of the engine block facilitates a stiff mounting of the gearbox, which helps tremendously to minimise vibrations induced into the body.

Ford’s proven Durashift MTX-75 5-speed manual gearbox provides Ford S-MAX with an effortless and refined shifting character. It features dual cone synchronisation of the first, second and third gears, another measure contributing to reduced shifting forces.

To reach 100 kph from 50 in fourth gear takes only 8.6 seconds thanks to the close ratio gearbox, which complements the sporty performance of the power train. This high-performance, 20 valve, all-aluminium, DOHC design is mated to Ford’s highly successful Durashift M66 6 speed gearbox, which features triple synchromesh for the lower gears. It is quick, responsive and operates smoothly for driving enjoyment and economy.

Yet even with this responsive performance, fuel economy and CO2 emissions are significantly improved. Compared with the previous 161PS 2.3-litre automatic power train, CO2 is reduced by 19 per cent to 189g/km, even though the new SCTi has over 25 per cent more power. This translates into a combined fuel economy of just 34.8mpg* and an extra urban figure of 44.1 mpg.

It’s the cheapest car to buy, and the S-MAX also has the lowest emissions, putting out 169g/km of CO2. So it’s no surprise that it’s the best option for company drivers.

S-Max Durashift

Relaxed automatic gear shifting or a sporty sequential manual? You don’t need to choose one or the other, because you can now have both, with the sophisticated new Durashift 5-tronic automatic gearbox.

This advanced gearbox adds fresh dimension to the Ford Mondeo’s acclaimed driving experience, by providing you with both a fully automatic gear change and clutchless manual shifting in a single unit. Durashift is the flexible option for today’s varied driving environment. In heavy city traffic or the busy stop-start conditions, simply select ‘Drive’ and the gearbox takes care to the gearshifts, adapting to the conditions and your individual style. Then on demanding back roads or sweeping highways, when you prefer the controllability of manual gearbox, simply move the selector sideways and you instantly have a clutchless manual gearbox that lets you decide when to change gear. Durashift gearbox delivers new levels of gear shifting refinement. But that’s not all. It also adapts to the road conditions and your driving style. Whether it is climbing a gradient or coasting downhill, gridlocked in the city traffic or preparing to overtake on the highway, Durashift’s next generation Automatic Gearbox Control Unit selects the most appropriate operating mode for a smooth and refined driving experience.

The new Durashift automatic gearbox incorporates a number of features designed to enhance safety and convenience. The versatile nature of Durashift enables it to meet two contrasting motoring needs:

Driven in automatic, it will reward you with effortless, refined and economical travel.
In manual, you will be able to enjoy driving in a much more sporty manner, without needing to sacrifice the convenience and comfort of a spacious 5 seat interior.
‘Drive’ and ‘Reverse’ can only be selected from the ‘Park’ position with the brake pedal depressed. This feature is known as the brake/shift interlock. Engaging ‘Drive’ or ‘Reverse’ from the ‘Neutral’ position is possible without operating the brakes.
