What is the difference between manual and automatic transmission?
on 9 Mar 2020
The key difference between these two transmission models is that a manual transmission requires you to do more work when the vehicle is in motion. A manual transmission allows you to physically shift the vehicle into different gears (hence the word “manual”), using a clutch pedal and shift knob. In order to move your vehicle forward and reach higher speeds, you have to manually shift gears to get to your desired speed. An automatic transmission, on the other hand, does the grunt work for you, changing gears fluidly as you push on the gas pedal. There are some benefits to choosing a manual transmission over an automatic. Manual transmissions give you more control over the vehicle, they tend to be less expensive, can get better fuel economy estimates and it can be fun.However, Ford Endeavour BS6 will come up with new 2.0-litre diesel Engine
The Toyota Fortuner is being offered with a 2.8-litre diesel and a 2.7-litre petrol motor. The diesel motor churns out 177PS. Just like the current model, the 6-speed manual variant develops 420Nm while the 6-speed automatic variant churns out 450Nm . The diesel Fortuner is also offered with rear-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive options. On the other hand, the 2.7-litre petrol engine develops 165PS of power and 245Nm of torque to the rear wheels with 6-speed manual and automatic options. The Fortuner comes with 296 litres of boot space and a massive 220mm of ground clearance. The diesel automatic (4x4) we tested, on the other hand, was a little over a second quicker, taking 12.14 seconds to clock 100kmph. We aren’t surprised, considering it makes more power and torque with 177PS and 450Nm on tap. Notably, if you pick a diesel-manual you get 420Nm instead. Efficiency too was noticeably better compared to the petrol-auto at 12.38kmpl (city) and 15.04kmpl (highway).It is priced in the range of Rs. 28.18 - 33.95 Lakh(Ex-Showroom, Delhi).
