Until someone discovers the right parameters it's going to be a LONG road to perfection. What's crazy is people wanting the tunes to be perfect on day one. Tell me the last time on day one of a new motor/trans that was perfect out the box, and even better when it was tuned .....never happened.
Exactly! There is always problems and still will be going forward. I just think these problems are going to be magnified over the 6R with the new 10 speed.

Sometimes you dont even know its shifting and smooth as can be, othertimes it'll slam/clunk a gear either upshift or downshifts. Almost like its getting confused on what to do. I think in the long run there are benefits to the 10 speed to keep rpms exactly where you need them to be right in the meat of the powerband, plus will help the MPGs. The concept is there, just still needs refining especially in a powerhouse platform like the 6.7L. I just have my reservations on whether or not its actually going to be better (reliability and simplicity wise) than the 6R thats in my 17. If/when the truck is able to be tuned, I think a lot of tuners are going to be messing up a lot of peoples transmissions for a while. I hope Ford hits a home run with the beefed up 10R thats going to be in the Super Dutys, but think its going to have plenty of growing pains for multiple years.
Same reservations have been made since 2spd power/street glides.

Very true and will always be that way when it comes to a big change. But I just would want some years of real world feed back on the HD platform with that 10 speed before I personally bought one. Guess we will see! Plus, I actually think the 17-19 front end looks way better that the 20s. Not a big fan of the shape of the head lights, fog lights and the smiley face grill. Definitely not enough to make me leave my 17 coming up. However, that new blue is going to be an awesome choice to have on a Super Duty!

Yep...people in the aftermarket tuning will always use excuses about the hard parts WAY before they state they just don't know how to get the tuning correct.

All great points and discussion about the new 10-speed, but I am still worried about the huge sticker price for something that is inevitably going to cause a headache... I mean, I get that everything is a process, especially when it comes to new engineering, but the track record on these 10-speeds thus far still poses enough worry to just stick with the 2017-19's.

How can you even say "but the track record on these 10-speeds thus far still poses enough worry...."??


The Super Duty version has not EVEN been out on the street used by customers. LMAO


Comparing a F-150 10spd to a not even released SD 10spd is a bit of a stretch. Not to mention no one has really reported the tear down of any other "10spd" co-built by manufacturers to show they have problems. Yes, I don't follow blogs/forums of other brands so NO I don't care. Why?? Cause the population on the forums/FB are like 1% of all the products on the road. No one will really post up their in-depth knowledge sharing the findings of the real world products on the ground. Why?? Cause someone else out there will show where their info/knowledge is inaccurate.... sure there's always opinions....but you know the rest of that comment.


Let's wait until someone breaks one when unloaded driving to the mall....then multiply that by about 25,000.....then we can say what doesn't really work well.

There have been plenty of failed 10 speeds so far but its natural first years of the design to work out the bugs in the hardware and software. They did say in an article I read the 2020 superduty has been the most tested superduty to date with most miles logged. Ordering bank is open 8/14 and initial build date of 11/4
