GM and Ford Partner up to Improve Transmissions for Fuel Economy


Detroit Free Press - April 15, 2013

Tra­di­tion­ally rivals, GM and Ford announced an arrange­ment to coor­di­nate for a project which aims to improve mul­ti­speed trans­mis­sions to improve fuel effi­ciency. The project is pro­jected to engi­neer the next wave of expen­sive inno­va­tion, a feat that was recently achieved by Chrysler. Automak­ers are cre­at­ing alliances now that were unheard of years ago to speed up the nec­es­sary R&D process.
