Cars in U.S. Available with Manual Transmission Only? Two Ford Mustangs Make The List
For many of the GenX or older crowd, the manual transmission was common. Many people from those generations learned to drive in a manual vehicle because a stick was available on just about everything back in the day. Manuals were also the transmission of choice for those wanting fuel economy because the stick shift was more miserly than the auto in years past. Manuals are dying out today, and many Millennials in particular famously eschew the stick shift. There are only eight cars sold in the U.S. that come in manual only, and two of them wear the Blue Oval.
Well, both of them are Ford Mustangs which don’t wear the Blue Oval literally, but you get what we mean. The Mustang doesn’t need a Ford emblem on it for people to know it’s a Ford. Two Ford Mustangs are among the last eight cars in the U.S. that are manual only — the Shelby GT350 (and GT350R) and the Ford Mustang Bullitt.
